Boilers, Hydronic, Steam, or Radiant Heaters

Forced Air Furnaces



This page is still under construction.

I service, repair, and replace most boilers and furnaces.

Here are some photos of the service I did on one of the furnaces in my house.

I thought I had taken photographs when I ripped out the old coal boiler and split the heat for two separate apartment units but I can't find them. When I do I will post them here.

I had to service this boiler because black Carbon or soot was building up on one of the two boilers that I put in telling me carbon monoxide was venting in the house and not out the chimney as it should. To solve the problem I had to take the entire system apart, clean and reseal everything and set it all back to working order.
