Steam boilers work by generating steam from water and sending it to radiators throughout a home that dissipate heat to warm a room. Homes in Billerica, Andover, Chelmsford, and the surrounding areas may be commonly warmed by a steam boiler.
In fact, steam heating is one of the oldest forms of heating in homes and apartment buildings that works just as well today. If your steam heat boiler and system just aren’t cutting it, you might need a repair or replacement system. Ultimately it’s up to you if you want to move on to another heating system, but there’s benefits to keeping your steam flowing.
Before replacing your broken steam boiler heating system, consider the benefits it can offer:
- Reduced energy costs (when using natural gas)
- Longevity (some boilers can last decades)
- Low maintenance requirements (but be sure to schedule inspections)
- Quiet (no sound versus forced-air ventilation)
Importance of Steam Heat Boiler Maintenance
It is wise to have your boiler checked at least once a year by a skilled technician in Billerica. A boiler repair professional can make adjustments to ensure that your boiler operates both safety and efficiently. You'll be especially appreciative of the check during winter when your boiler works properly.
