Boiler Systems and Service You Can Count On

The winter weather in this part of the country shouldn’t be ignored. There are a lot of very cold days—and extremely frigid nights—to contend with. Is your home heating system ready to rise to the challenge of keeping your entire household warm and cozy throughout the most trying weather of the year? If you have a boiler installed in your home, then you are certainly on the right path.

The boiler ranks among the most efficient, durable, and effective of all home heating systems. What the boiler is not, however, is perfect: no heating system is. In order to ensure that you get the very best performance that a boiler has to offer, you must schedule your boiler services in Delaware County & The Main Line with trained, experienced heating professionals. The fact that you are reading this right now means that you are well on your way to doing so.

The experts at Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. offer boiler services in Delaware County & The Main Line.

Why Heat My Home with a Boiler?

A boiler is a great alternative to systems such as furnaces for a few reasons. First of all, boilers do not use ductwork. While ductwork can be a great way in which to distribute heat throughout your home, it can also be the source of much energy loss, as well as indoor air quality problems. Heated air may leak out of damaged or improperly sealed ductwork, while pollutants may be delivered throughout the house via this system. Plus, hot air tends to rise, so the heat generated by a furnace can wind up rising to the ceiling.

A boiler, on the other hand, heats water. It then uses a hydronic system to provide efficient and comfortable radiant heating throughout the house, applying heat directly to floors so that it can radiate out to other objects in the room, including people. It may also use radiators or baseboards. Boilers also have relatively few moving parts, so they are less prone to operational problems than forced–air heating systems.

Allow Us to Install and Service Your Boiler for You

No matter how great of a heating system the boiler may be in theory, in reality it’s simply not going to succeed in its operation unless installed by a qualified professional. Because boilers deal with water, any issues with leaks due to a poor installation can lead to inefficiency, water damage, rust, and other serious, costly issues. Your boiler must also be of the right size for your home’s heating needs, or else it’s going to fail to heat your home effectively, efficiently, or both. When you allow us to size and install your boiler, you won’t have to worry about that. We can also handle your boiler replacement, if you have an old system in place that is no longer capable of heating your home satisfactorily.

Our technicians are also more than capable of handling any boiler repairs that you may need. It is true that boilers are renowned for their great reliability, but the fact is that no heating system is ever going to be 100% reliable. At some point, you’ll find that your boiler is not functioning properly. Perhaps it is operating too loudly, or leaving cold spots throughout your home. Whatever the case may be, prompt boiler repairs are always in your best interest. Remember too that the most effective way in which to prevent problems with your boiler from developing in the first place is to schedule routine boiler maintenance. This allows our team to inspect and tune up your system on a regular basis, ensuring that every component is in fine working condition.
