Boiler Service and Repair

These new boilers are called high efficiency condensing boilers. High efficiency condecing boilers convert a higher percentage of their fuel into heat compared to a regular or "traditional" boiler. Is your boiler over 10 years old? If so, you probably have a regular boiler.
Boiler contractors may also be plumbing contractors. Boiler contractors, heating contractors or plumbing contractors, you should do your homework before you hire any contractors.

Regulations may be different from state to state, but you should make sure the boiler contractors you contact have the proper licenses and insurance. Ask for references from other local homeowners that have had a similar boiler repair, replacement or boiler service maintenance.
