To Repair or Replace? What You Should Know About Steam Bath Repair
If you have a steam bath in your Calgary home, you’ve experienced the many health benefits of getting moist heat therapy in your very own steam room. But just like any other major appliance in your home, your steam bath may need to be repaired at some point. Some companies will try to convince you that your steam bath needs to be replaced, but a skilled technician should be able to repair it.
These are the benefits of doing so:
1. Improved lifespan
The average electric steam bath boiler can last for more than 20 years with proper maintenance. Unless your boiler is pushing the 30-year mark (in which case it should be replaced), regular service and repair will help you get the maximum possible longevity out of your boiler.
2. Improved energy efficiency
A gradual decrease in energy efficiency can often be attributed to the buildup of sediment that interferes with your steam boiler’s proper functioning. Before you start shopping around for a new unit, have your steam bath boiler cleaned, serviced and repaired to see if that corrects the problem.
3. Save money
In most cases, repair is much cheaper than replacement. A new boiler can cost thousands of dollars so it’s a good idea to see if the replacement is truly necessary before you invest in a new unit.
4. Lower your carbon imprint
We all know that we should reduce, reuse and recycle and the same principle applies to your appliances. By putting off buying a new steam bath and repairing your existing unit, you’ll prevent it from ending up in the landfill and help to protect our local natural environment.
Upgrading specific components of your boiler is often enough to get it operating at peak efficiency again. Adding new features as new technology becomes available, or even just replacing very basic parts like traps and valves, can significantly prolong the lifespan of your boiler and improve its fuel efficiency.
