How to Maintain Hot Water in your Calgary Home
All of us do it, we take our hot water for granted every day and barely realize the luxury of having this available at our fingertips.
Wondering how you get hot water in your home in the first place? Your boiler is turned on with an electric switch, which then allows gas to enter a sealed combustion chamber and heats the water.
Without your boiler your home would have no hot water.
Annual Gas Boiler Services
Alpha Plumbing recognizes the importance and always suggests booking in an annual maintenance service for your boiler to guarantee peak efficiency. If you spend the time now to get a maintenance service done, you will significantly reduce the chance of your boiler breaking down in the future.
Alpha Plumbing has dedicated years specific to boiler services and we know what is best for both your budget and household.
A key component in the winter is ensuring you have pipe insulation. Calgary has drastic weather temperature drops which causes stress on the pipes. Pipe insulation will stop your pipes from freezing when the thermostat drops below zero. Condensate pipes are at a particular risk of freezing during these winter months, and without pipe insulation, a boiler breakdown is nearly inevitable. Protect your wallet and let the professionals at Alpha Plumbing install pipe insulation before a breakdown occurs.
Alpha Plumbing takes the time to educate our customers on the importance of maintaining any boiler system with annual boiler services, including inspection, maintenance and cleaning to keep your boiler performing at peak capacity. In the long run, this will save you money and more importantly, help avoid future boiler leaks or breakdowns which can result in expensive emergency boiler repairs.

A combustion analysis is critical for the longevity of your boiler. Alpha Plumbing highly recommends this service in order to get the required gas-to-air ratio.
