It’s boiling hot outside, and chances are, the last thing on your mind is your boiler. Your goal is keeping your customers comfortable now, not when winter hits! As it turns out, however, if you have an older boiler and are worried that it’s going to give up on you, summer is one of the best times to replace it. Don’t get caught with a broken boiler just when it gets cold outside. Instead, check out these key reasons to replace your boiler during the warmer summer months instead of waiting for winter.

Reason #1: Winter is One of the Busiest Times for Engineers

Boilers are, obviously, more likely to break in the winter, when they see more use. That means that the majority of engineers are out on jobs, doing repairs, or booked up for quite some time in advance. If you wait until winter to replace your boiler, especially if it has to break before you’re willing to make the replacement, you may find your business without heat for quite some time before you’re able to get the replacement you need.

Reason #2: Replacing in Summer Means You Won’t Be Cold While Work is Carried Out

It takes an average of 1-2 days to install a commercial boiler–and that assumes that there aren’t any unanticipated problems. If you replace your boiler in the middle of winter, that means 1-2 days when your employees and customers are shivering throughout the day while they wait for the replacement to be finished. If you replace your boiler in the summer, on the other hand, you won’t have to worry about a drop in temperature throughout the business. Instead, you can let the installation carry on as planned without interrupting your regular schedule.

Reason #3: You Won’t Be in a Rush to Pick the Right Boiler

If you have a boiler breakdown in the middle of winter, you have to make decisions about a new boiler fast. During the summer, on the other hand, you have all the time you need to do some research, pick out the boiler that will work best for you, and be sure that you’ve chosen the right team to install it. Why put yourself under pressure if you don’t have to? Instead, go ahead and take care of that boiler installation during the summer months. You’ll be surprised by how much smoother the process goes when you aren’t worried about making a snap decision.

Reason #4: You’ll Have Peace of Mind for the Winter

Finally, and most importantly, a summer boiler installation means that you won’t have to worry about your boiler when winter rolls around. Not only will you have a shiny, new piece of equipment that you can count on to get the job done, you’ll have a warranty that will cover any potential problems. That means that if there is an issue with your boiler, help is just a phone call away. A summer boiler installation can provide peace of mind throughout the winter months. You won’t have to fret that your boiler is making that strange sound from last winter again, or that an ancient boiler might be on its last legs. Instead, you can focus on any other unanticipated problems that crop up in your business.

A summer boiler installation might be the last thing on your mind, but it’s a great common sense move for your business that can help prepare you for the cold winter months. Don’t wait around until the middle of winter to take care of a potential problem! Instead, take care of your new boiler installation while temperatures are running high outside. The process will be far easier and more convenient for your business.
