Well, maybe it does look a little better.
When I moved into my home I was really disappointed to find a boiler system in there. I hated the look of that big, ugly beast. It took up half the basement, was rusted and appeared to only have minimal time. I really wanted to rip out that heating system and try something new. However, I didn’t have the money to buy a brand new heating system right after purchasing a home. I am so thankful it took me over a year to acquire the necessary funds. Once I had the money to buy either a classy fireplace or a heat pump system, I realized that the boiler needed to stay. Appearances really can be deceiving. My hot water boiler is the most amazing piece of machinery. I realized that the boiler not only heats my home, but my family’s water. It serves as a baseboard heater and hot water tank. When operating, the boiler doesn’t heat like how it looks. I was imagining groaning, moaning and a lot of complaining. The boiler almost silently provides clean and efficient heating. So far I have not needed to call a HVAC business for a boiler repair or service date. The machine looks exactly like how I moved in. Well, maybe it does look a little better. After realizing how amazing the boiler is, I gave it a little cleaning. I wiped everything I could see and around the heating system. I also make sure to tell the boiler everyday how much I appreciate it. I now have extra money to spend elsewhere on my house.
