Boiler Installation, Replacement, Repair, and Maintenance

Installation, Repair, & Maintenance


Boilers work by heating water or producing steam, which is then circulated through pipes and radiators to provide heat in your home, the water in your home, or both using a combination boiler. Heat from the boiler can be delivered through baseboards or in-floor radiant systems. You can even use a boiler to keep the driveway and walkways free of ice and snow in the winter when used in a snowmelt application or to heat a pool. Boilers are known for:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Durability and Reliability
  • Comfort and Quiet Operation

How Do Boilers Work?

How Boilers Work


Fuel is burned in a combustion chamber, which produces heat.  Or, electricity is used to produce heat and a combustion chamber is not needed.


The heat is transferred to the water, which is contained in a vessel called the boiler.


The water is heated to a high temperature, which produces steam or hot water.


The steam or hot water is then circulated through pipes to radiators or other heat exchangers located throughout the building.


The heat is transferred from the steam or hot water to the air in the building, providing warmth and comfort.


The cooled water or condensate is then returned to the boiler to be reheated and the process repeats.

Advantages of Boilers

Energy Efficiency

Boilers are known for their energy efficiency. They are designed to heat water or generate steam, which is then circulated throughout your home to provide warmth.

Durability and Reliability

Boilers have fewer moving parts than other heating systems, which means they require less maintenance. Additionally, boilers can operate for decades without needing to be replaced, making them a cost-effective and reliable heating solution.

Comfort and Quiet Operation

Boilers provide a comfortable and quiet heating experience. Unlike forced-air heating systems that can produce hot and cold spots, boilers provide a consistent and even distribution of heat.

Is a Boiler Right for Your Home?

Whether a boiler or a traditional furnace is better for your home depends on several factors. Here are some key differences between boilers and furnaces:

Heat Distribution

Boilers distribute heat through hot water or steam, which is circulated through pipes and radiators. Furnaces, on the other hand, distribute heat through air, which is blown through ductwork and vents. Boilers can provide more even and consistent heat in your home, while furnaces can produce uneven heat distribution due to variations in air temperature from room to room.


Boilers can be more energy efficient than furnaces, as they do not require blowers or ductwork to circulate heat. This can result in lower energy bills and less wasted energy. However, the efficiency of a boiler or furnace will depend on the specific model and fuel source used.


Boilers can have a longer lifespan than furnaces, as they have fewer moving parts and require less maintenance. However, both boilers and furnaces can last for many years with proper care.

Fuel Source

Boilers can use a variety of fuel sources, such as natural gas, propane, or electricity. Furnaces typically use natural gas or oil. The availability and cost of fuel in your area can influence which type of system is more cost-effective.


Boilers can be more expensive to install than furnaces, as they require more complex installation and more piping. The cost of a boiler or furnace will depend on the specific model and fuel source used.
