As homeowners, we often don’t think about our boiler until it stops keeping us comfortable.

Whether gas or oil-fueled, cast iron or high efficiency, combination wall-mounted or steam, you can trust that Heritage has a team of experts that can help design a customized solution for your home.
Boiler Installation Services in Massachusetts
When you potentially get 30 years of use out of a heating system, it’s hard to believe that boilers won’t last forever. But just like cars, heating systems rack up “miles” through many seasons of use and eventually they become too costly to continue to repair.
Depending on the type of boiler originally installed in your home, you may get anywhere from 15 to 30 years of use out of a well-maintained system. While newer, high efficiency boilers tend to last about 15 years, older boilers like steel and cast iron can last 15 to 30 years. However, eventually they all will reach their maximum lifespan through typical wear and tear.
Today’s modern “boilers” may not necessarily be the image that pops in your head when you think of the dusty old system sitting in your basement. Today’s boilers have come a long way in efficiency and design, leveraging zones throughout your home controlled by their own thermostats. These forced hot water heating systems are one of the most efficient ways to heat a home in Massachusetts.
Most homeowners end up replacing their boiler due to a critical failure such as a cracked heat exchanger, or simply because repairs have become too costly, making replacement more economical.
If you need a new boiler, Heritage Home Service is here to diagnose any issues with your existing boiler and make recommendations on what’s right for your home based on your heating needs, layout, and other unique factors in your home’s design. We are trained and certified in nearly all residential makes and models of boilers. We will present you with the options available, all the costs involved, and answer any questions you and your family have on what you’ll get out of your new boiler.
If a boiler isn’t well-maintained, the byproducts of burning fuel can build up in your system, causing it to work harder than it has to, which can lead to a loss in efficiency and a shortened lifespan. This is why routine maintenance is critical for your boiler and will save you money in the long run. Annual maintenance is also required by most manufacturers to maintain your warranty.
Boilers are reliable and efficient but can be complicated and technical heating systems that require certification and licenses in order to work with fuels such as oil or gas. This is why we highly recommend using a trained professional to perform maintenance. By trying to “do it yourself,” you may damage your boiler beyond repair, forcing you to replace it. Instead, have us come out and see what’s going on with your boiler to make sure it’s working as intended.
