“If you need a reliable plumbing, HVAC and electrical company then I highly recommend Boston Standard Company. I had them come out to replace 2 toilets, replace my outside hose bibb, replace 3 shutoff valves in my basement, service my 5 zone heating system and get my 3 ac systems ready for the warm weather. They are technically superior to any other company I have ever used.” –Dave Lenane, 4/13/2021

These guys are amazing. They arrived on-time, were polite/friendly, and finished quickly. Given the current state of things, they provided no contact service, work face masks, and gloves. Excellent service!

Very professional plumber group. Every step, from setting up an appointment, to the job itself was executed at 5 star levels. Install was thorough and the follow up after the job included a specific write up with many pictures to confirm findings. Best option in town.

I have had great luck with the plumbers sent to my home. Not only did Elvis m. and Frank M. take time to explain everything they, like the other people in your company were friendly and cooperative and worked fast and efficiently. Your workers are your strongest value to your company.

COMMON AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE QUESTIONS


Knob and tube wiring used to be the standard for electrical wiring in North America. The name says it all: if you notice wires running through porcelain cylinders (tubes) inserted in holes in the wooden floor joists of your basement, you have knob and tube wiring.


Knob and tube wiring looks like wires running through porcelain cylinders (tubes) inserted in holes in the wooden joists of a ceiling or floor.

Knob and Tube Wiring


Knob and tube wiring was used from 1880 to the 1940s in the U.S.


Knob and tube wiring can be dangerous because of its age. If the building insulation envelops the wiring, then it can be a fire hazard. Improper modifications to the knob and tube wiring can also make it a risk to your and your family’s safety.


The safest way to replace knob and tube wiring is to hire a professional electrician.


Mass.gov recommends taking the following steps to prepare for a power outage:

1. Enroll in your local notification system to get updates about potential power outages.

2. Put together an emergency kit with auto, solar, or crank chargers.

3. Prepare your home:

✓ Make sure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working.
✓ Install a generator.
✓ Stock up on fuel.
✓ Learn to operate the manual release lever for your electric garage door opener.
✓ Keep a landline phone with a corded receiver.
