Attention Boiler Owners! Have you had your boiler cleaned and checked this year? Though you may not think that proper maintenance is a big deal, having the boiler serviced annually by a professional is the only way to ensure that the unit has a long, healthy, and reliable operating life. At Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning we are Chicago’s premiere boiler specialists, and we have the knowledge and expertise you need to keep your boiler in shape for the remainder of this winter season and for years to come. Just like furnace owners have to replace their air filter every month, boiler owners have a few checks they should also complete in between the annual maintenance from Four Seasons.
