Has your boiler or heater gone out? It can get very chilly without the heat from a boiler or heater. Where do you go to find help fixing this problem? A reputable and certified professional heating company is just what you need.
There is little difference between a boiler and a heater. Both use water and steam to produce heat. The term “heater” is used if the unit does not boil the water, and the term “boiler” is used if the unit does boil the water. A boiler has to be made of strong metal with secure rivets and seams to prevent a seam from splitting which will cause the water or steam to rush out explosively. If the boiler uses coal to burn, a leak can cause catastrophic damage including loss of life for the people feeding the coal to the boiler.

You want someone who is familiar with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ regulations and certified as such. Once you determine that the company knows what it is doing, you move on to price. The company should be able to visit your site and offer an estimate which they should guarantee. On the day of your appointment to have your boiler fixed, the technician or technicians should show up on time and get right to work on your boiler.

This will potentially save thousands of dollars and much frustration over the life of your boiler.
