When the winter months roll in the first thing we do is turn to our commercial heating systems to keep customers, employees and ourselves comfortable. It’s the time of year when we truly depend on our heating systems, and it’s also the time of year when we discover all the faults and disrepair that have built up over the summer months when we forgot our boilers, radiators and pipes existed.

Winter maintenance is essential if you wish to keep your system running smoothly through the winter, and to avoid costly repair jobs that can build up when skies darkened and we push the heating throttle from Zero to Tropical. As industrial and commercial heating specialists we’ve discovered that winter maintenance affords our clients a number of benefits.

1. Avoid Winter Breakdowns

Over winter, your boiler can take a battering from both the demands of use and the demands of the weather. Pipes can freeze, blockages build up, and delicate parts like thermostats can be pushed out of whack by heavy use or general wear and tear. This is the time of year when you’re mostly likely to need a fully functioning heating system, and also the time of year when it’s most likely to breakdown; winter maintenance from an accredited and trusted company like us here at Westex Heating Ltd means that you can rest easy as you turn up the heat and ensure maximum productivity.

2. Increased Efficiency

Even if you’re lucky enough to avoid a breakdown, boiler systems lose efficiency without proper maintenance. You can end up turning the dial all the way to boiling and find your system only producing enough heat to keep your fingers from freezing to the dial. Over time, air leaks can cause build ups that reduce efficiency and inaccurate thermostats can lead to inefficient heat. Maintaining your boiler this winter will ensure that you get the heat you’re paying for.

3. Increased Lifespan

As with all machinery, proper maintenance significantly increases the lifespan of your system and reduces the chances of costly repairs later down the line. In the cold grips of winter it can be hard to look beyond clocking-off and heading home, but in the long run a proper maintenance check or service will pay dividends in terms of efficiency and reliability.
