If you want to keep your home warm and cozy, maintaining your Boiler Repair installation and maintenance should be a top priority.
Whether you need a new heating system or simply need updates or repairs to your current boiler, Dimare’s Heating and Cooling Services is here to walk you through your options.
Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts. Boilers heat water, and provide either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems, or can heat air via a coil. Steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot water boilers, and are inherently less efficient, but high-efficiency versions of all types of furnaces and boilers are currently available. To learn more about furnaces, boilers and other types of home heating systems, explore our Energy Saver 101 infographic on home heating.
When it comes to boilers, you have three choices:
Boilers function quietly and are good for homes that do not have ductwork. They are often used in radiant floor systems.
How Often Do You Need Boiler Maintenance?
If you already have a boiler installed in your home or business, you’ll need to ensure that it is performing effectively by scheduling yearly maintenance. Boilers begin to lose their efficiency as they age—sometimes even becoming dangerous or faulty. When you call on Dimare’s Heating and Cooling Services, we can come out and identify any potential issues your boiler may have and fix it before the winter comes!
Consider scheduling boiler service once a year, ideally in the late summer / early fall so that you can ensure your heating system is ready for the coming chill.
