We’re committed to providing our customers with a broad range of top-quality air conditioning and heating systems and some of the best heaters available on the market are boilers. While they’re generally less popular than furnaces and heat pumps, boilers can provide outstanding comfort and energy efficiency for many homes. We at Ray’s HVAC are proud to install and maintain the great boilers Schaumburg area residents can depend on to reliably heat their homes.
Benefits of Boiler Heat
While furnaces remain significantly more popular, good boilers actually enjoy several key advantages over their forced-air cousins. First, a boiler doesn’t remove moisture from the air, which means the indoor air quality issues that can come with a furnace are no longer an issue. More importantly, a boiler provides radiant heat by channeling hot water or steam through conduits in the walls and floor. This sort of heat doesn’t just warm up the room; it warms up everything in the room, including people. In other words, boiler heat has a notable comfort advantage.
Moreover, heat from a boiler can easily be extended outside the house by just running more radiant conduits. You can extend the system to a garage or patio, or even heat your driveway and watch the snow melt as it falls.
Boiler Installation, Maintenance and Repair
Because every home has unique heating needs, we’ll start your boiler installation project with a full heat loss calculation to assess those needs. By taking into account square footage, layout and the amount of heat your home loses through the roof, walls, doors and windows, we’ll be able to pick out a boiler that’s sized perfectly to suit your home. Proper sizing leads to improved fuel efficiency, better performance and a longer lifespan for your system.
Even a well-maintained boiler may be prone to occasional issues, and when your heating system won’t start in the dead of winter, that’s a safety issue in addition to being an inconvenience. Our boiler repair team will step in immediately and get your essential system up and running to keep you and your family safe and warm. We’re qualified to repair and maintain all makes and models, and we bring enough parts and equipment to finish most repair calls in a single visit.
While we’re happy to fix issues as they arise, we believe the best approach to repair is prevention. That’s why we offer comprehensive annual maintenance plans to keep your boiler in good working order. During each maintenance visit, we’ll identify any small, emerging issues and repair them before they can become big problems. We’ll also make the calibration adjustments needed to maximize fuel efficiency and performance, saving you money right away.
