Increase Efficiency with Regular Boiler Maintenance
Whether you have a new boiler installed in your home or an existing boiler that you have been using for years, we encourage you to let our New Jersey heating technicians perform comprehensive maintenance for your boiler.
What Are the Benefits of Scheduling Boiler Tune-Ups?
At Gold Medal Service, our boiler tune-ups include inspecting, adjusting, and ensuring all working parts and machinery are functioning optimally. We also catch potential problems early, preventing any major breakdown. With over 24 years of experience serving East Brunswick and all of New Jersey, we have seen how simple annual maintenance can dramatically increase the efficiency of a boiler and can even extend the lifespan of the system.
What Can You Expect From Our Boiler Maintenance?
- Inspecting the entire system for water leaks
- Checking the temperature and pressure readings
- Identifying any error codes
- Making sure there is no blockage in the vent termination
- Listening closely for any strange noises or vibrations
We suggest that you schedule your regular maintenance a few weeks before the winter starts so you can be sure that you have reliable equipment when you need it the most.
Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
