Boiler Installation and Repair in Columbia, MD

While there have certainly been a lot of advancements in the HVAC industry over the decades, there are some systems that seem destined to remain perennial favorites. The boiler is definitely one of them. Boilers are by no means a new technology—though, like all other heating systems, they have benefitted from new technologies over the years—but they remain one of the most popular of all home heating systems.

If you are building a new home, or if you are ready to replace an old heater in your existing home, then a boiler is an option worth your consideration. Just remember that a boiler is only as good as your boiler services in Columbia, MD. With our 100% money back guarantee and our history of exceeding expectations, MBS Mechanical, Inc is the company to trust.

How Does a Boiler System Work?

A boiler is not a forced–air heating system. It does not heat air directly and then distribute that heated air throughout homes. Instead, the boiler heats water, and distributes that hot water to heat delivery outlets throughout the house. We install and service boiler–based hydronic systems, including not only in–floor heating systems (see our radiant heating page for more details), but also hydronic baseboards and radiators.

There are many benefits in heating your home with a boiler system. Water retains heat much better than air does, and you don’t have to worry about heat getting trapped up at the ceiling as much. Boilers have fewer moving parts than forced–air systems, making them reliable and long lasting. Baseboards and radiators emit heat effectively, and you’re not going to lose efficiency to leaking ducts.

You Need a Professional Boiler Installation

Boilers sound simple in theory, but no boiler is going to operate efficiently, effectively, or safely if it is not professionally installed from the first step. Boilers are quite complex in some ways, and everything from the system controls to the fitting of hydronic pipes requires a professional touch. The last thing you want is an undersized boiler that is not installed properly failing to heat your home or even developing damaging leaks.

While boilers certainly do have impressive lifespans, it is also important to remember that no boiler will last forever. If you have an old, inefficient boiler, or you’d like to replace an oil model with a natural gas boiler, give us a call. Our boiler replacement professionals will make sure your new system not only fits your home and your needs perfectly, but that it is expertly installed, too.

You’ll Also Need Routine Boiler Maintenance (and Occasional Repairs)

Ask any HVAC technician what the most important step to take for your boiler is. We guarantee every one of them will have the same answer: schedule routine maintenance! In fact, if they don’t say that, we’d recommend looking for a new contractor! There is nothing better than a meticulous, annual tune–up when it comes to getting the best performance possible from your boiler in Columbia, MD.

Even the best boilers that are routinely maintained can be expected to require the occasional repair, though. No heating system is perfect. While annual maintenance is definitely going to help to keep these repair needs at bay, that doesn’t change that you will, at some point, need boiler repairs. When you do, contact us for prompt and reliable service.
