Boilers and Radiators

As one of the leading oil heat companies in the Delaware Valley, we know a thing or two about boilers and radiators. Trust Mauger & Co. for unbeaten boiler and radiator installation and repair.

Enjoy the comforting warmth of heat from a home boiler and radiator system

Unlike heat pumps and furnaces, which rely on ducts to blow warm air through a home, boilers and radiators use hot water and steam to distribute warmth. Radiator heat can do an excellent job of keeping your home toasty warm when it’s cold outside. And, with a newer model, you can enjoy a comfortable home without having to run up your energy costs — modern boiler systems are very energy-efficient.

At Mauger & Co., we regularly repair, service, and install boilers for our Pennsylvania neighbors. Our factory-trained technicians have experience working on all major brands and can help with anything you need.

The Benefits of a Home Boiler

There are a few unique advantages that come with using a boiler and radiator system.

Because there are no ducts pushing air through your home, you don’t have to worry about keeping your ductwork clean. Overall, a boiler is a low-maintenance type of heating system.

The radiators emanate heat to warm the air — so there’s no dust or other particles circulating through your system and blowing out through your vents. This can make it easier to maintain your indoor air quality.

Boilers are efficient by nature because water is such a good conductor of heat. Boiler and radiator systems also offer a comfortable, cozy feel that some people prefer.

What Type of Boiler Should I Install?

Choosing the type of boiler can be a tough decision. Here are some of the features and factors you’ll want to consider when upgrading your existing boiler or installing a new system:

  • What kind of metal? Home boilers can be made from cast iron, aluminum, or stainless steel. Cast-iron boilers are known for their longevity and low maintenance. Aluminum is generally the least expensive, but it doesn’t transfer heat as well as other metals. Stainless steel is the most expensive and is usually only used for condensing boilers to make the extra cost worthwhile.
  • Highly efficient or traditional? Condensing boilers, also known as high-efficiency boilers, are generally very efficient and a great option for larger households. They recirculate the exhaust instead of releasing it outside through a metal flue located on the roof. They are also more expensive.
  • What's your heat source? Your heat source will influence how much it costs to run your boiler. Electric is usually the most expensive. Both oil and gas heat can be very efficient, as long as your system is installed correctly and you’re using an efficient boiler.

If you’re installing a new system, you’ll also have to figure out what type of radiator you want to use.

Radiant heat flooring is becoming increasingly popular because it is so effective at heating a room. The boiler heats water, which then flows through pipes located underneath the flooring. Because heat rises, you can expect a nice, even distribution. The one challenge with this type of radiator is it’s not suitable for all flooring types — so it’s not a good fit for all home types.

Traditional boiler and radiator systems used steam heat. The boiler heats the water in the tank, then sends the steam up to baseboard, panel, or vertical units. Older systems aren’t that efficient and they can be noisy. However, newer systems offer efficient warmth and usually rely on hot water instead of steam.
