Indoor Air Quality
The most common type of residential heating system across the country is the forced-air furnace. But boilers are still common, and there is no indication that their popularity is declining. Boilers will be with us for a long time because they provide some excellent benefits for home comfort and lowering energy bills. We specialize in energy efficient comfort systems.
You may already have a boiler working in your home. If so, the boiler service you might need at times (repairs, regular maintenance) is right here at Red Rock Mechanical, LLC. Not all HVAC contractors work with boiler systems, but we have more than 20 years of experience with them! If you are looking to have a boiler system installed or replaced in Burlington, VT or elsewhere in Northwest Vermont or Northeast New York, you can count on our NATE-certified technicians!
Why a Boiler Installation Is an Excellent Comfort Pick
Boilers work through radiant heating, which means that rather than spreading heat through air movement the way a furnace, heat pump, or other forced–air system does, they send heat into rooms by raising the temperature of objects in the room. In most cases, a boiler sends its heated water to a radiator, baseboard heater, or in–floor piping. Here’s why using radiant heating from a boiler is advantageous:
- It’s efficient: Water is a better heat transference medium than air. A boiler expends less energy to provide the warmth level a household needs.
- It spreads evenly: One of problems that forced–air systems encounter is that the air they send out tends to gather near the ceiling, taking longer to spread through a space. Radiant heating moves through spaces evenly, taking care of eliminating cold spots.
- It takes less mechanical stress: Boilers have few moving parts, and that means they will encounter repair issues less often. They’ll also last much longer than other types of heating systems.
- It helps keep the air clean: Ducts gather dust and other debris, and when the blower comes on, this is blasted out into a home’s air. Radiant heat, on the other hand, doesn’t blow around any airborne contaminants.
Repairs and Maintenance for Boiler Systems
Although boilers have fewer repair needs than furnaces or heat pumps, they still require regular attention from professionals to see that they enjoy long lives and don’t start to corrode or leak. Our technicians provide annual maintenance to keep boilers in top shape.
And should those malfunctions pop up anyway (there’s no such thing as a 100% repair–free heater!), you can reach us 24/7 to arrange for repairs. You’ll always be connected to a live person, never a recording, and our technicians will aim to solve the problem on the first visit.
