Boiler Replacement

Statistically speaking, HVAC installation projects will be the fourth largest purchase in the average home in America, and for this reason, Boston Standard should be your first choice. We have many years of experience replacing atmospheric chimney-vent boilers, high efficiency direct-vent boiler and mod-con wall-hung models with the highest efficiency. We can handle boilers and furnaces that provide radiant heat, forced hot water, steam or any combination of the two. We handle all brands but also focus on Weil-McLain boilers due to their legendary reputation and track record. When you install an item that should last you over 20 years, you want and deserve the best, so call Boston Standard, because when we do your installation, we don’t charge any extra to do the best installation you could ask for – it’s the way we handle every project.

What Matters??

So you have a new heating system and it isn’t working right? Your previous installer said they had an inspection? It is strange to think that an inspection only governs the connections of gas, water or vent piping, and that the actual piping of the boiler is completely up to the installer. When you hire Boston Standard to take care of your home’s, your business, or your institutions heating system, rest assured that we will perform your installation as the manufacturer intended it to be done, because after all, what value is a nice new system that wasn’t installed correctly?

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.

High Efficiency Boiler Installation

High Efficiency boilers arrived on the scene in the US in the late 90’s, and quickly got a bad reputation for limited lifespans and various other problems. The issue with these “first generation boilers” was that the installers didn’t know what they were doing! Many companies treated them like their low-efficiency counterparts, which they aren’t, and didn’t follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Installing any new product requires proper training, and at Boston Standard, we train all the time. Weil-McLain, Burnham, Lochinvar? Check. Navien, Rinnai, Peerless? Check! We are your best source for expertise on high-efficiency gas boilers, whether for installation or service. We can help you get the most from your existing systems or from the next system you install in your home or business, and the best part about working with Boston Standard? We guarantee it. Our installations are backed by the industry’s best warranty, which means your installation will be done in a manner that will ensure years and years of trouble-free performance.

Oil-To-Gas Conversions

Oil heat was once the most common form of heating in America, but Natural Gas has become the product of choice for a number of reasons in recent years. Some of those reasons are higher efficiency, more cleanliness, positive environmental impact and greater fuel security. Whatever your reason, Boston Standard is prepared to help you make the switch. When you call us for your oil-to-gas conversion we’ll do everything we can to make the process nice and simple. Not only will we set up temporary hot water and remove your oil tank, but we’ll take care of all permits and inspections and we’ll make sure you get the rebates, warranties and tax credits that are coming your way. Take the guesswork out of converting to natural gas – call Boston Standard!
