A well-maintained high quality boiler can last from 50 - 75 years. However, if a boiler is more than 25 years old, it may not have energy saving and safety devices found on newer models. With modern energy saving devices, a home owner can enjoy a 25 - 40% savings on energy usage and enjoy more comfort.
Stop by our show room or request literature when you contact us.
Our experts have years of experience and offer complete service and maintenance including:
A back flow assembly is a device which connects your boiler to the city water service. This device, required by code, is designed to prevent stagnant water within your boiler system from contaminating domestic water systems. When Northwest Mechanical installs your boiler, it will also obtain a permit (at an added flat fee) and ensure that the proper city and/or county inspections are performed.
Just as cruise control on your automobile works to maintain constant speed despite external demands, boiler efficiency controls allow your heating system to react to inside and outside temperature changes automatically, in an effort to provide your home with continuous comfort. With energy-saving temperature responsive controls, your system will maintain the comfort settings you desire by making adjustments for you. If your boiler is more than 25 years old, controls may help increase the efficiency of your system. However, just adding controls to an older boiler may not achieve the results you desire. Our Service Technicians can give you information that will assist you in making the best choice for your situation.
Just as your automobile requires a periodic tune up to avoid an untimely break down, your boiler requires annual maintenance to ensure the efficiency, safety and dependability of your heating system. Planned Maintenance Agreements can be purchased up to three years in advance at today's prices. This comprehensive inspection also includes a Safety Inspection. Contact us to schedule your boiler's annual maintenance.
Air Elimination Devices, Pressure Relief Valves, Low Water Cut Offs, Secondary Aquastat, and Back Flow Assembly Devices are common safety devices that should be found in working condition on all boilers. Our service technicians can help you ensure the safety of your family, tenants, or clients, by performing an annual Safety Inspection on your boiler. Safety inspections can be scheduled at your convenience. Contact us to schedule yours today.
If your boiler is 25 years of age or older, it may lack safety devices routinely installed on newer boilers. Our service technician can install a safety package including: an Air Elimination Device, a Pressure Relief Valve, Low Water Cut Off, Secondary Aquastat, and Back Flow Assembly Device. This will bring your boiler up to code and provide peace-of-mind knowing that your boiler is not a safety hazard to your family.
You may not think of the Northwest as an earthquake zone, but seismologists have long since known that the Puget Sound area is primed for a "big" one. By installing an earthquake valve on your gas meter, you can keep your home safe from a gas leak in the event of an earthquake. Our service department representatives can schedule your installation of this lifesaving device!
