How Does a Boiler Work?
Boilers employ radiant heat to warm your home. They heat water and distribute it via specialized hot water lines that run through your baseboards, cast iron radiators, or floor heating systems. The cooled water returns to the boiler to be heated as it circulates within a closed system. A boiler can be fueled in any number of ways: electricity, gas, oil, or wood pellets. Boiler maintenance service ensures the entire system works smoothly and efficiently. If and when your system needs maintenance, we install and service boilers that run on electricity, oil, and gas.

Boiler Service Frequently Asked Questions
How often should you service your boiler?
You should have a qualified professional come out to provide boiler service at least once a year. An annual inspection will keep your boiler system running safely and efficiently. Routine boiler maintenance service can prevent safety hazards, and making minor adjustments now can prevent more costly repairs later on.
Should I repair or replace my boiler?
Always consider safety first when deciding whether boiler service is sufficient or if a replacement is best. Often, simple repairs will keep an appliance running well for years. But it’s also important to consider that a newer model might offer better energy-efficient savings over time. Our certified boiler maintenance service professional will be happy to review your options so you can make the best decision for your family.
Do you offer a new boiler installation?
Yes! Part of our comprehensive boiler service includes installation. We will be happy to review the latest model and install a new, more energy-efficient boiler for you.
Is a gas safety check the same as a boiler service?
Not quite. A boiler service provides a more in-depth inspection and evaluation of your boiler, which goes beyond a gas safety check. The boiler furnace inspection includes a review of the central heating pump, the water lines, and the rest of the appliance. The gas safety check focuses strictly on the gas lines, burners, and combustion ventilation.
Why choose a boiler instead of a heat pump?
Boilers have an incredible advantage over heat pumps in that they do not rely on blowing air. Older, less efficient furnaces blow hot air, which can waste heat and result in a drafty environment. Because boilers rely on radiant heat, they keep temperatures much more consistent while reducing airflow. The result is a toasty environment that utilizes resources much more effectively.
Our expert boiler repair team can further explain the pros and cons of different systems and provide options that can help you make the best choice for your needs.
