Upgrade Boilers


Boilers are an old and trusted type of home heating system whose purpose is to generate steam or provide hot water.

Viessmann Wall Hung Boiler

Most boilers life span is between 15-20 years for oil and gas. Preventative maintenance is the number one key to getting the most life out of your boiler.


Upgrade or Maintain my current Boiler System? 


The replacement choice of a heating system whether it is a boiler or a furnace can be intimidating with concerns over cost and sizing the appropriate system for your home.

Costly and frequent repairs are signs to replace a system but even a system that has not required much attention should be reviewed as it ages. In the 1990's most systems efficiency ratings were 80% or less. Cutting fuel costs, creating more space, adding value to my home, increasing my comfort, age of my domestic hot water system, healthier air, energy efficiency, and possibly tax rebate/credit incentives all help  to offset the cost for a superior system.

Kedel Pellet Boiler

Advancements in efficiency, size, construction, maintenance requirements, and fuel consumption now provide you with expanded and improved selections. Contact us for information on NH rebates for up to 30% on installs of Pellet Boilers. 


Let us help you weigh the cost of your systems repairs, its effectiveness, and life span against upgrading to a new system. Call our team today and let us not only warm your home but your heart too.

Boiler Fuel Sources



Natural gas is the most common fuel. Almost all new buildings and homes in New England are choosing natural gas (where available) or propane. The electric boilers may offer clean, efficient and safe heating eliminating problems with pilot lights, gas venting and carbon monoxide but electricity often costs more. Pellet Boilers are becoming increasing popular as an alternative to oil sourced boilers offering self cleaning systems, local use of resources, reduced emissions, full automation and affordability.



Perhaps you want to consider changing the current fuel source you use now. We can help you complete the job from start to finish. Call us to get started.

We have been selected as a winner of the 2013 Best of HomeAdvisor award! Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
