Assess the Type of Boiler Needed for Your Home.

Homeowners typically replace their heating systems for a variety of reasons. Often times it is for fuel cost savings, reducing emissions, or the need for a more reliable system. When considering the installation of a new boiler, we will schedule an in-home meeting to assess the project. During this meeting our team will evaluate the existing heating system and the heat demands of the home. Next, we will present the best replacement options based on our assessment. Most Massachusetts customers will qualify for thousands of dollars in rebates and 0% financing for new boiler installations.

OK, most don’t need this level of custom boiler heating system but we think it’s pretty cool. It was built by Blaisdell Plumbing and Heating  to show our capabilities and the craftsmen’s quality we put in all of our work.

Oil to Gas Boiler Conversion

At Blaisdell Plumbing & Heating, we specialize in converting your oil-fired boiler to more efficient gas heating systems. Gas combustion creates about 30% less carbon dioxide emissions than oil. We will manage all aspects of the project from the oil tank and boiler removal to installing and wiring your new gas-fired heating system. 

Adopt an Energy-Efficiency Strategy When Installing a New Boiler System in Your Home.

One way to ensure that you get the most out of your new boiler system is to adopt an energy-efficiency strategy during installation. Doing so helps to maximize your energy savings and minimize your overall energy costs. This can be achieved by optimizing the size, type, and efficiency rating of your new boiler system to suit the specific needs of your home. Additionally, Blaisdell Plumbing and Heating will help you choose boiler models that are equipped with smart controls which allow for even better energy efficiency.

Boiler Types

What is a boiler?

A boiler used for home heating purposes is a vessel which transfers heat to water and distributes that heated water (or steam) around the home through radiators to transfer the heat to the air. Boilers are often times mischaracterized as a “furnace”, but a furnace is used for forced hot air heating systems.

Condensing Boilers

Condensing boilers are the most efficient option for hot water style heating systems. Often called ModCon (modulating / condensing) or High Efficiency, they incorporate technology that allows for cost and fuel savings over more traditional heating. The way this technology works is an outdoor temperature sensor is installed which communicates with the boiler, allowing the boiler to adjust the energy output based on the current weather. These boilers also qualify for substantial Mass Save rebates and interest-free financing.

Combination Heat & Hot Water Boilers

“Combi” boilers are able to heat your home and provide tankless, on-demand hot water all in one package. This option provides considerable space savings in cramped basements and mechanical rooms by eliminating the need for a tank-style water heater.

Cast Iron Boiler

Cast iron boilers have been the tried and true hot water and steam heating method for over 100 years. The construction of these units is very basic, but bulletproof. The disadvantage to this style of heating is it is not as efficient as a condensing boiler because it cannot modulate the energy output.
