South Park Slope Boiler Services
Boilers provide vital functions in a private residence or commercial property by heating water required for household tasks. The hot water from a boiler is necessary for washing dishes or laundry. Water inside the metal container of a boiler is also heated to provide steam that is transported throughout a building to keep rooms warm in cold temperatures.
What is a Boiler?
Because a boiler’s container holds water, the device is made from a durable metal that resists corrosion from rust. Typical metals used to make a boiler include brass, copper or alloy steel. Extremely old boilers are made of wrought iron because that is the only metal that was available many years ago. The outside of a boiler’s container looks simple, but inside there are complicated mechanisms to make it work properly. An old boiler requires a fuel source that can include oil, coal or wood while more recently made models are fueled by natural gas or electricity.
What Kind of Maintenance Does My Boiler Need?
Boilers require maintenance and repairs occasionally as parts break or corrode. Understanding a system’s components requires expertise because there are hundreds of boiler models made by many manufacturers. Having routine maintenance on a boiler’s systems to check for leaks can prevent water damage to flooring and walls. Making repairs each autumn to boilers can help to ensure our customers have heat and hot water throughout the cold winter.
What Size Boiler is Best for My Property?
There are several different sizes of boilers available for commercial or residential buildings. Understanding the correct size of boiler necessary for a building depends on several factors such as the fuel used for the device and number of residents in a building. Our expert plumbers can help customers make a selection that will provide adequate hot water and heat while working efficiently to avoid high utility costs.
