Here at High Performance Heating, we can tackle any project that comes our way. Most companies wouldn’t be able to handle a decades old steam boiler, but at High Performance we are trained to work on and install any make or model of boiler. Investing in a new boiler for your home or business can be pricey and hard to wrap your head around, dishing out all of that money for a new boiler that will sit in your basement and wont ever be seen. But the truth is, that it will be used more than any other appliance and it may be way more cost effective to replace your old boiler than to repair it. That’s not to say that your old steam boiler cannot be repaired, almost anything can be repaired.

With that said, if your constantly replacing parts and having to get your steam boiler repaired, the cost of the parts are going to add up to the price of a new one. Also new steam boilers are energy efficient compared to older ones that are not. They can cost you more each month in energy bills compared to newer ones. Older steam boilers also don’t have all of the safety features like newer models do. If something goes wrong they will just keep running and could be very dangerous, especially if there is a carbon monoxide leak or if there are holes all around your steam boiler pouring steam out. It’s very dangerous and could potentially be a ticking time bomb waiting to go off.

If your steam boiler looks like this, than it is time for a new steam boiler.

If your boiler looks like this, it’s time for a new one!

The presents of black/reddish soot everywhere is also an indicator that something is going wrong with your boiler and you should have it serviced as soon as possible because there is a good chance that the burners were not set up properly or if you have had your boiler serviced, past repair technicians did not analyze the flue gases. Service Technicians that do not properly test your boiler can leave you open to dangerous things happening that could put you and your family at risk.

Putting your family in a dangerous situation is something no company should do, we understand that if your steam boiler isn’t properly serviced or installed it can lead to a very unsafe environment. High Performance Heating takes this very seriously, our highly trained technicians go through strict steps when servicing or installing your boiler so you will not only get the highest performance out of it but the most money saved each month and it will be safe for you and your family.
