Gas Boiler Installation & Repair

Ready to make the switch from oil to natural gas? There are many reasons to install a natural gas boiler to heat your home:

  • Easier Maintenance
  • Cost Effective
  • Environmental Benefits
  • More Efficient

Gas boilers run on natural gas which is much cheaper fuel than oil. Gas boilers require no storage tank and are fed straight from the utility company, meaning there is no risk of running out of fuel for your boiler during heavy periods of demand. It also means that you never have to pay for a company to come in and fill up your tank. Many boilers come with a heat condenser which lowers the temperature of the air escaping from your house. This means less heat escaping from your home and less energy wasted. They also produce almost 30% less carbon dioxide than oil boilers making them less harmful to the environment.

Oil Boiler Installation

Oil-fired boilers are used as a heating system in many businesses and homes. Oil boilers work in the same basic way as gas boilers in that the boiler uses oil to create hot water. This water is then pumped around the house to radiators that create warmth and heat up the house. It also heats the hot water to the tapes in the kitchen and bathroom.

Steam & Hot Water Boiler Installation

When it comes to steam boilers versus hot water boilers, the operating principles are more or less the same. Both steam and hot water boilers involve the heating of water and creation of steam through the burning of fuel. The heated water is transmitted through the boiler tubes, while the steam created is circulated through the boiler with the assistance of radiators. Steam boilers are typically more powerful and used in industrial applications. Hot water boilers are commonly limited to applications for heating.

Steam & Hot Water Boiler Replacement & Repair

We recommend yearly maintenance to keep your heating equipment in good shape and to protect against breakdowns and unsafe conditions. Our technicians will:

  • Fully inspect your equipment
  • Test the boiler for any leaks
  • Clean the heating equipment
  • Detect & repair any small issues that can lead to larger issues down the line if not fixed
  • Check the overall operations of the heating equipment for proper operation

Sometimes we can replace sections on the boiler instead of fully replacement. If a new installation is unavoidable, we will explain your options. Metcalf Plumbing provides reliable and courteous service as well as reasonable rates. Contact us today to schedule your estimate and discuss your boiler-related needs.
