I decided that I wanted to add a boiler system to my house.
My current heater was on its last legs and everything I read about boiler systems seemed good.
They are giant heaters that can warm a whole house without any issue. The boiler can be safely tucked away in the basement and out of sight to work. You can hook them up to radiators, baseboards or be hydronic heating within the floorboards. A boiler can even be the home’s hot water tank, pool heater or a snowmelt system in the driveway. This type of heater lasts around 50 years rather than the usual 15. Also, a boiler hardly needs heating maintenance, repairs or any kind of thought while it operates. It is a one time purchase and you are done. I did realize that finding a HVAC company that does boiler installation and repairs isn’t simple. Not every HVAC company is qualified to handle this. Not only do they typically not sell the boiler systems, but the HVAC workers don’t know how to install them. Finding the right HVAC provider to sell and care for the boiler has not been an easy road. I did find one company that can handle hot water and steam boilers, but they specialise in commercial boiler systems. I feel like they wouldn’t want to do a measly residential boiler installation. The other company I found that would be perfect lives over an hour away. I don’t think they would be willing to drive that far for my appointment. Maybe if I pay them extra they will.
