Boiler Replacement and Installation Services in Boston, MA

Are you thinking about switching from a furnace to a boiler? Boilers operate by heating water, and then transmitting that heat to the building through radiators or floorboards. This makes them more efficient than furnaces because water is a better conductor of heat.

Boilers offer consistent heating, and they don’t spread allergens and dust through the air like furnaces. Boilers also generally require less maintenance than furnaces and can last decades when properly maintained.

If you’re thinking about replacing your old boiler or investing in new boiler installation, we’re here to help! Steam boiler or hot water boiler? High efficiency or standard efficiency? We’ll help you think through the important considerations when it comes to boiler replacement and installation for a secure and long-lasting investment.

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.

Old boilers are generally not dangerous because if something is wrong, it will likely turn off and refuse to work, but an old boiler could be dangerous if you smell gas, if there are signs of scorching or burning, if the pilot light is yellow, or if people experience headaches or nausea while the boiler is on.

No. Installing a new boiler requires both licensure and insurance. Boiler installation carries significant safety risks. Homeowner’s insurance claims may also be rejected if the boiler system was installed without following proper legal guidelines and safety codes. This job should always be left to a professional.
