Boiler Repair and Replacement Services Lehigh Valley, PA
Boilers provide an energy-efficient way for heating homes. What they do is boil water into steam, which heats your home before returning to the boiler as water. Their advantages over other heating systems are several. For instance, they can heat quicker since steam is lighter than air and since the water that returns to the boiler is already very hot and easily turned back into steam. Life span, though it varies by type, is roughly 15 to 25 years.
Let’s say you already own a boiler but it’s on its way out. Or, it could be that you want to convert from oil to natural gas for greater energy savings. Perhaps you’ve never dealt with boilers before. Whatever the case, turn to Lehigh Valley Plumber for fast, professional boiler installation.

Reasons for Boiler Installation
Besides a boiler’s age, there are other factors that may move you toward a replacement. To start off with, a brand-new boiler will cost you less in maintenance and repair costs. It will break down less. The newer it is, the more efficient it will be. Also, you have the chance to free up some space in your home by opting for, say, a wall-mounted boiler instead of a floor-mounted one.
Oil Boilers vs. Gas Boilers
You may have heard people discuss the pros and cons of oil and gas boilers. Here are some points to ponder. Price-wise, standard gas boilers are much cheaper than oil boilers, but we’re still talking about systems that cost an average of $2,000 or more. In addition, gas tends to cost less than oil, though the price of both can fluctuate with the seasons or with changes in supply and demand.
On the other hand, getting a gas boiler will require us to connect it to the mainline. This means trenching or directional boring, which is costly.
Perhaps you want a boiler that both heats your home and provides hot water without the need of extra appliances. Consider a combination boiler, then. Its AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating is a startlingly good 95%: In other words, 95% of the fuel used will go toward heating. We’ll help you sort through all your options.

Our team wants you to know what the signs of a malfunctioning boiler are because we handle boiler repairs in addition to installations. One sign is the presence of unpleasant odors. A smell of rotten eggs indicates a gas leak: something that calls for immediate attention. If there’s a smell of burning metal, then a component is getting too hot. Other warning signs include unusual kettling and whistling noises.
Working on a gas boiler in particular is dangerous and only allowed to certified technicians. Let us come over for troubleshooting before anything else.
Called in because of a busted water line in our front yard. Every employee from the office staff to all the technicians were absolutely terrific. Professional, polite, patient with the many questions and delays.
Steve just left after fixing my clogged kitchen sink. We called this morning and he was here at the time expected. He explained everything in detail, made sure I understood. He gave an estimate before he began. Brought shoe covers, a floor cover, kept everything clean. When he was finished, he asked if I had any questions or needed anything else. This is all 4 days before Christmas! Totally happy!!
