Steam Boiler Replacement
Steam is considered a “lost art” and you have to know what you’re doing to get the most of this old method of heating, but done well, steam heat is efficient and extremely comfortable. The hard part about doing a good steam boiler installation is that you have to have learned from the Dead Men – the secrets of installers from the early 1900’s, and the only way you get that is to either learn it during your apprenticeship or to study constantly. Boston Standard loves steam heating systems and can help you get the most from yours. One-pipe, two-pipe, vapor vacuum and all the other fun flavors – bring it on! We can help you tinker and tune your system to make it purr like a kitten, so call us today and we’ll put our expertise to work for you.
Thermostatic Radiator Valves
Did you know that you can adjust the temperature to each radiator? Most people equate a cast-iron radiator with old, inefficient heating – Not true! In fact, having a nice, big, old cast iron radiator can be secretly efficient, as a big chunk of metal will hold heat for quite some time, and they’re also plain old comfortable. It feels good to sit next to warm things in the wintertime, so save the radiators! We can add thermostatic valves to each radiator and dramatically alter the way you use them and allow room-by-room control, which means comfort where you want it and more efficiency!
Standard Boiler Replacement
There are a lot of options for new heating systems, and a chimney-vent appliance isn’t the worst thing in the world by any stretch! We have many places where venting a high-efficiency unit isn’t possible and we install a new standard efficiency boiler. They’re simple, reasonably efficient and usually don’t cost too much money, so if you need a great installation of a standard gas boiler, please call Boston Standard and we’ll get you fixed up right away.
