Steam Boiler Replacement

Steam Boiler Replacement before Christmas

There is no need to wait until your Boiler fails to replace it. By contacting My Dear Watson Plumbing, Heating and Cooling you will be ahead of the game with zero surprises. The age of your boiler will be a determining factor along with unusual noises, frequent feel-up of your oil tank, and most importantly how comfortable is your home to live in Winter months. Timing is everything dealing with an old Boiler.

Keith M. from Concord, Massachusetts was having serious Boiler problems. He was referred to me by another plumbing contractor in the area.
His Boiler was soot up, rarely serviced and piped incorrectly.
The only option was to replace it.

After our first inspection we quickly evaluated that Keith’s boiler was installed incorrectly, producing an uneven heat.
I mentioned to Keith the importance of the “near-boiler piping”. I explained that the main steam return vent had to be insulated for full function and boiler’s efficiency.
Very quickly Keith agreed to replace the old boiler.

The only remedy was to replace the water heater.

My Dear Watson Heating, Plumbing and Cooling removed the old Boiler in a flash.

With replacing an Old Steam Boiler Timing is everything especially approaching the middle of Winter

With the cold days approaching fast, timing was critical. Keith’s new boiler was our priority and we work very hard to complete our work on time.
We started our work upstairs at the radiators level. We determined the heating load, the type of radiators needed with their heating section requirement in square foot.

We had all the technical information that we needed to start building the 370 square feet of heat which equated to a 4 section cast Iron Steam Boiler.
