Boiler Services in Fenton, MI
Chances are that you've heard the phrase "an oldie but a goodie" at some point. That adage could easily be applied to the boiler, one of the oldest and most trusted methods of home heating around. Boilers are renowned not only for their efficient operation and the even way in which they heat homes, but for their durability and long lifespans as well.
Needless to say, even the best boilers on the market will fail to impress if they are not installed and serviced by qualified, experienced technicians. Since 2001, First Choice Heating & Cooling has been providing homeowners in the area with gas-fired boiler services that they need, and with outstanding quality. Our services are backed with the honesty and integrity that you should be looking for when choosing a heating contractor. Call today if you require any boiler services in Fenton, MI.
Which Boiler Is Right for My Home?
There are pros and cons to any type of home heating system, including gas boilers, as well as the subcategories of steam and hot water boilers. The first factor that you should consider when choosing a new boiler is the fuel source.
Natural gas is the obvious choice for many homeowners. Gas–fired boilers may be fueled by natural gas or propane, with propane most commonly considered in those areas where natural gas is not accessible. Propane must be stored on site and delivered, whereas natural gas is piped directly to the home. Propane is more expensive, generally, but is also available just about everywhere.
Heating oil has waned a bit in popularity in recent years, as natural gas offers a largely domestic alternative to imported oil and its volatile pricing. However, many companies today also offer oils mixed with biodiesel, which is an eco–friendly option that also reduces reliance on foreign oil.
While we do not install or service oil furnaces, we do encourage homeowners to consider the use of an oil boiler – particularly if natural gas is not an option. You can visit the EIA’s (Energy Information Administration) FAQ page to learn more and compare heating fuels.
We Offer Steam and Hot Water Boilers
The majority of homeowners looking for a new boiler will likely decide upon a hot water boiler in Fenton, MI. There are simply more options to choose from when you go with a hot water boiler, and the hydronic heating option is one of the most revered methods of heat distribution available. You may choose to upgrade your hot water boiler with retrofits such as modulating aquastats or time–delay relays. These upgrades can help you to cut fuel costs.
If you already have a steam boiler system in place that uses steam radiators to distribute heat throughout the home, of course, we are happy to replace that system for you with the most up–to date equipment available. Because of the temperatures at which these systems operate in order to generate steam, there are just fewer options to consider. Certain upgrades and retrofits, such as vent dampers, can help existing steam boilers to improve efficiency as well.
