Many homes use forced air heating systems, like furnaces, to heat their homes during the winter months. However, there are plenty of homeowners that still rely upon boilers, either steam of hot water, to keep the home comfortable. These homeowners may be in the minority in the HVAC industry, but they still need to have a licensed serviceman that they can count of to take care of their system. Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning has the experts that these homeowners need to keep their system in check on a yearly basis. Neglecting to do so because you think there isn’t someone out there who can care for the system is not an option and it could have detrimental consequences.
What Does the Pressure Relief Valve Do?
The pressure relief valve on your boiler is probably the single most important device on the system. This one part is what could save you from a boiler disaster. All heating systems have built in safety devices and the pressure relief valve is a key safety feature of your boiler. This valve is what prevents a dangerously high pressure level from building up within your boiler. Pressure within the boiler can build up for a variety of reasons and without a properly functioning relief valve, the boiler could blow, and at the very least, the high pressure could cause some serious damage to the inside of the unit.
Protecting Your Boiler and Your Comfort
Pressure relief valves need to be checks and tested yearly be a trained professional in order to make sure that they are performing their function properly. Allowing a leaky or broken valve to go unchecked could cost you more than just the replacement of the valve to repair if the problem goes on long enough. You could find yourself prematurely replacing that boiler because of a faulty valve that was not repaired promptly.

Our serviceman will check over the entire system including the pressure relief valve and get the unit working at its peek efficiency and safety before leaving the home.
