While furnaces are the most commonly used method of heating in the United States, boilers have been around for longer, and there are reasons why. Invented in the late 1700s, these heating systems used to bring water to a “boil” in order to produce steam, which is where they received their moniker. This is no longer the case with most modern boilers. They instead rely upon various registers around the building in order to send heat to the desired location, all the while returning cool water to the boiler to be reheated.
Boilers are a good choice for anyone with health issues because, unlike furnaces, boilers do not blow any air to heat the house. This prevents a number of issues including dust, allergens, noise, and draft. They can also heat water and even be used to provide radiant floor heating. If these features and benefits appeal to your needs, perhaps a boiler is the type of heating system to use for your property.
Not only are boilers expensive, installing them is no easy task, especially when placed in an already existing space. Proper codes must be followed, and if done incorrectly, the results could prove fatal. Many boilers are gas-powered and require a direct link to the building’s gas supply in order to deliver heat. Hazards such as this must be handled carefully, which is why it’s highly recommended you seek out professional assistance. At JC & JC HVAC Mechanical Contractors our technicians are equipped with the proper tools and expertise to ensure your installation is done right risk-free. When you receive boiler installation from us, our work is backed by a limited warranty, so you can feel confident that your heating service is protected by high quality standards.
Whereas furnace repair entails seasonal duct cleaning and air filter replacements, boilers really only need scheduled maintenance once a year. Even so, receiving regular maintenance will protect your boiler from potential leaks and failures, improve performance, and lengthen the unit’s lifespan. When serviced by JC & JC HVAC Mechanical Contractors, we not only work to improve the function of your boiler, we’ll educate you on how to care for it properly as well as what warning signs to keep your eyes on should you suspect your heating system is no longer performing as it should.
A great reason to choose a professional HVAC company for boiler services is that you build a relationship with the technicians. Should anything go wrong with your boiler down the line, a record of all maintenance and repairs will inform the technician of problems the boiler suffered in the past, thus better informing him how to improve the boiler’s performance.
Leaks are the primary potential concern with boiler heating systems, which is why proper hookup is pivotal to ensure the unit functions properly. If your boiler was installed incorrectly, you may require the aid of a professional technician to ensure the problem is correctly addressed. Other reasons that boilers quit working include low water pressure or excessive air buildup, both of which may cause the water to stall and prevent heat from radiating as it should. Finally, if you live in a particularly harsh winter climate, it is possible for water to freeze while inside the boiler, which can severely damage it.
