When it comes to heating topics on this blog, we’ve written quite a bit about furnace maintenance and repair —both specialties of HeatSource and our talented and knowledgeable staff. You might be wondering, “Do they do the installation, maintenance, and repairs on boiler systems?” There’s an easy answer to that—of course!
Boilers use hydronic heating to perform the same types of home heating functions you’d get from a more common furnace. The typical boiler heating systems heat water to high temperatures, then use that heat energy to push warm water throughout the house, using the in-floor tubing or radiators; some even use forced air by way of an air handler. Multiple forms of energy, including natural gas, electricity or oil can be used to power these types of heating systems.
The HeatSource staff of HVAC technicians are highly trained to handle both common and uncommon problems with these systems. We service most boiler brands, including Buderus, Weil–McLain, Peerless, Lars, Burnham, Dunkirk, Lochinvar, Knight, Munchkin and many more.
While we offer full repair and replacement at HeatSource, we also take care of associated zoning issues, radiator repairs and installation, gas piping issues or installation, and address air quality concerns that can come with too much moisture and not enough air movement. Our staff is trained to handle all of these boiler-related issues with care and safety in mind.
Like furnaces, boilers should have annual maintenance and inspections in order to extend their lives and ensure they are working as properly and efficiently as possible. We offer comprehensive 21-point inspection for our boiler customers, which includes:
- Burner cleaning (for both safety and efficiency)
- Leak inspection – Inspection of electrical connections with the boiler system
- Inspection of all boiler controls
- Check and adjust PRV / pressure check valve operation
- We also make sure any maintenance or repairs are going to help maximize the life of your boiler with proactive inspections and full system analysis. These precautionary steps will help
prevent inconvenient breakdowns and help uphold the manufacturer’s warranty on these systems.
As with any type of major home heating system, safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to maintenance, repair or replacement of a boiler. Boilers involve high pressure and temperatures and can present many dangers if not cared for properly during maintenance or repair. If you have a boiler that needs repair, is on its last leg, or looking for the installation of a new boiler system, don’t hesitate to contact us today. Regardless of what your boiler system needs, we’re here to guide you down the path to peak boiler performance.
