How Do Boilers Work?

What to Look for in a Boiler Contractor

Your heating system is a major part of your home and one of the most expensive components to replace. That’s why it’s vital that you hire the right HVAC contractor to manage your boiler’s repair or replacement. Here in Allen Park, there are plenty of companies that offer boiler services. How do you choose the one that’s right for you? Here are six things to keep an eye out for:

  1. Current Insurance and Licensing: Make sure the HVAC company you hire is authorized to provide heating service in Michigan. Before signing anything, ask to see copies of their current certifications and licenses. You’ll also want to ask about the kind of bonding and insurance they carry. These things will protect you from any damage caused by the contractor or any accidents their employees suffer while working in your home.
  2. Referrals and Reviews: Before selecting an HVAC contractor in Allen Park, check out their online reputation. In addition to Google, check other platforms such as Facebook and Yelp. Taken together, these things should provide a decent overview of what to expect while working with this company.
  3. Expertise and Experience: You want a company with ample boiler experience. This will allow them to quickly pinpoint the issue and give advice you can only get from a true professional. Ask how the company ensures its technicians stay up-to-date on industry changes. Also confirm how much experience their boiler installation experts are required to have.
  4. Warranties and Guarantees: What happens if you’re unhappy with the work performed? Will the contractor back your newly-installed or replaced boiler with any kind of warranty? Not doing these things is a common cost-cutting measure in other companies. Rest assured, when you buy from R&L, that your satisfaction is guaranteed.
  5. Special Offers and Rebates: Buying a new boiler isn’t cheap, but many manufacturers offer discounts that your HVAC contractor can pass on to you. Before scheduling a quote for boiler replacement, you can check the national DSIRE database to find tax credits and other local programs in your area that may help you save. A good HVAC company, like ours, will help you file any required paperwork.

Boiler FAQs

How Often Does My Boiler Need Service?

We recommend having your boiler serviced on a yearly basis. This will ensure it operates at maximum efficiency through the cold times and into milder weather. By getting it regularly serviced, you can help yourself to avoid future boiler repairs. You can learn more about the benefits of HVAC maintenance in Allen Park and Southgate by reaching out to us by phone or through our website.

Though not possible in the past, newer “combi” boilers allow you to use the water in your boiler for bathing and cooking as well. This eliminates the need for a separate water heater, saving you space and boosting home efficiency.

If your boiler is leaking, don’t panic. You can limit the damage by taking the following steps:

  1. Turn off the boiler’s power and shut the main water valve to prevent further damage
  2. Mop or lay down towels to soak up the water
  3. Try to find the source of the leak. Typically, it comes from the boiler tank, discharge tube, or drain valve
  4. Call R&L to schedule a boiler technician for repair

This depends on numerous factors. Very old boilers are typically very loud. While those made in the last 15 to 20 years, tend to be quieter than even the newest ones. This is because internal components in new systems, used to enhance efficiency, produce low levels of noise during use. Even if this additional sound is annoying, your new system’s lower operation cost will more than make up for it.

While radiators can be used to cool homes, boilers cannot provide the cold water necessary to do so. Using a water chiller to produce a cooling effect can lead to humidity, corrosion, and condensation issues. For people with boilers looking for a way to beat Allen Park’s summer heat, ductless AC is often the best option.

Our radiant heating experts service all brands of residential boilers. These brands include Lennox, Bosch, Weil-McLain, Lochinvar, Hydro-Therm, Crown, Navien, AO Smith, Buderus, Peerless, Westinghouse, and Triangle Tube.
