Many homes in the Bay Area have boilers, and if your home is old, it may have a ‘single state’ model, which is very inefficient and a major contributor of pollutants. However, in California, all new models have stricter requirements and are mandated to be Ultra Low NOX (manufacturers emissions standard). They are also up to twice as energy-efficient as older units. We are happy to replace your old unit with a newer model and can discuss your various options with you. Our technicians are trained on all types of boilers, and much of their training comes directly from the boiler manufacturers themselves.
Two Decades of Experience
Throughout the last 20 years, our Oakland plumbers have seen just about everything. We’ve helped homeowners replace boilers that have been in their homes since before they moved in, have provided basic maintenance services like flushing and cleaning radiant systems, and have helped homeowners troubleshoot problems over the phone. We offer 24-hour availability and same-day service appointments. Best of all, our installations are backed by some of the best warranties and guarantees in the industry.
Emergency Boiler Repair
When the heat goes out in your home or business, it can be a nightmare. When the boiler is malfunctioning, you can’t just bundle up and wait it out. This situation is a serious emergency that requires immediate attention.
That’s where we come in. Our team of technicians is available 24/7 to diagnose and fix your boiler issues. We can restore heat and comfort to your space as quickly as possible. By choosing our emergency repair services, you can save yourself from prolonged discomfort, prevent further damage to your boiler, and ensure that your home stays safe and comfortable.
If you own or operate a boiler, you must prioritize its maintenance to avoid costly and dangerous issues. Our professional boiler maintenance service helps keep your equipment running efficiently, safely, and durably.
We can conduct a thorough inspection and cleaning of your entire system, including the combustion chamber, heat exchanger, burners, and controls. Our team also tests for leaks, checks for proper fuel combustion, and inspects all safety devices according to industry standards.
A well-maintained boiler will keep your energy bills reasonable, and it will limit the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and major equipment failures.
Types of Boilers
There are a variety of boilers available on the market today, each with unique features and advantages.
The first type is the conventional or regular boiler. This system uses a hot water storage cylinder to provide central heating and hot water.
Next up is the system boiler, which includes a built-in pump, expansion vessel, and pressure relief valve, making it easier to install than a regular boiler.
Another option is the combi boiler, which heats water on demand and doesn’t require a storage tank, making it ideal for smaller properties with limited space.
Finally, the biomass boiler is a renewable energy alternative that uses wood pellets, chips, or logs to power the heating system.
Speak with our team to see which is right for you. With so many options to choose from, we can evaluate your household’s needs and suggest the best boiler to meet your needs.
