Help your clients prevent boiler failures and save energy costs
Now is the time to get ready for the heating season and HSB can help you with online information intended to prevent breakdowns and lower energy bills.
Start up, don’t break down
Many boiler failures occur when the equipment is started up because of a lack of preparation. Even worse, neglected heating systems may break down under high demand in the coldest weather leading to costly repairs, early replacement, and business interruption.
Poor maintenance is costly
Each year HSB pays hundreds of thousands of dollars for boiler breakdown claims, many of which could be avoided with proper maintenance. And schools, businesses, municipalities and other customers needlessly waste money on extra fuel and operational costs.
Tips to help you prevent a loss
HSB offers boiler maintenance and operational tips you can share with your clients:
