The majority of Americans heat their homes using either a furnace or a boiler. A boiler works by heating water, and then using that hot water or steam for heating. Once the water is heated, steam radiators distribute steam, or baseboard radiators or radiator floor system distribute hot water throughout your house. When you want to keep your home warm all winter long and your house relies on a boiler for heat, maintaining that boiler and repairing it if any problems arise should be a key priority. For all your boiler maintenance and boiler repair needs in Dyer, Indiana and surrounding areas, look no further than the experienced service professionals at Van Drunen Heating and Air Conditioning.
At Van Drunen Heating and Air Conditioning, we service three types of boilers: gas, oil, and electric. While boilers have a long life span, they need to be serviced regularly to keep them in tip-top shape. We recommend servicing your boilers on an annual basis – as they age, you should increase this to twice per year.
In addition to helping you to keep your home as comfortable as possible by servicing your boilers every year, we can also assist with other boiler services, including boiler installation and boiler repair.
Old and outdated boilers or furnaces may not be doing the job they are supposed to, and you may be losing hundreds of dollars every year in wasted energy costs. If your boiler is more than a decade old, we recommend replacing it with a new, more energy efficient model. At Van Drunen Heating and Air Conditioning, we can explain to you the different efficiency ratings of different boilers (and furnaces). While conventional boilers operate at around 80 percent efficiency (compared to 56 to 70 percent efficiency for older boiler systems), you can install a condensing efficient boiler in order to obtain 98.5 percent efficiency – these models convert nearly all the fuel used into heat that is necessary to make your home comfortable when it is cold outside. Not only will this save you more money, but it also carbon dioxide emissions each year, too, helping you to help the environment.
Torn between a new boiler or a new furnace? We can help you weigh the benefits and downsides of both. If your house does not have ductwork, however, a boiler is an ideal solution. Boilers are also quiet and unobtrusive.
At Van Drunen Heating and Air Conditioning, our boiler specialists know what they’re doing. In fact, we have been serving Illinois and Indiana for 48 years, and our five decades’ worth of experience has made us experts in the field.
