Gas or Oil-Fired Furnace & Boiler Services

Gas or Oil-Fired Furnace & Boiler Services in Connecticut

Keep your boiler in shape with Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC's boiler repair and maintenance

Boilers are called central heating systems because the equipment is in a central location, and the heat is spread throughout the home. However, unlike other heating methods, there is typically a lag time between the boiler turning on and the heat being dispersed.

Most boilers produce steam or hot water using natural gas or heating oil, and all are either condensing or non-condensing. Boilers are required by the federal government to be at least 80% efficient and can have efficiencies as high as 98.5%. Some boilers can be expensive to install, but all types typically last 15 to 30 years. Contact us today to schedule your free estimate in the Greater Waterbury area!

Servicing Gas Boilers in Torrington, Watertown, and Waterbury

Gas-fired boilers are fueled by either natural gas or propane and are highly efficient. However, natural gas is not available everywhere, and some homeowners at the end of a gas pipeline pay higher fuel prices. Propane typically is more expensive than natural gas, but it’s available throughout the U.S.

Oil-fired furnaces and boilers are a popular choice in areas of the country with limited access to natural gas, such as the Northeast. If you buy an oil-fired boiler, you’ll need heating oil delivered and stored in tanks and your operating costs will be affected by the rise and fall of oil prices.

Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC provides our customers with full evaluations of all types of gas or oil-fired boilers and can handle any repair or maintenance needs you have.

What are the common types of heating outlets for a boiler system?

When some people think of boilers they think of radiators; others think of in-floor radiant heating. Both of these are correct, and that's because a boiler can use three main types of outlets to distribute heat:

  • Hydronic floor heating (radiant floor heating)
  • Radiators
  • Baseboard

One is not better than the other, and many homeowners mix the type of outlets to suit a particular space. This makes boiler systems somewhat more versatile than forced air heating systems. To know which outlet(s) is best for your home, talk to one of our heating specialists.

    Customer Testimonial

              I needed quick service on a 45 year old hot water boiler in a 1938 house I recently purchased. While I could get the pilot light lit, nothing I did could get the boiler to fire (water was circulating). On Wednesday I contacted Pelletier Mechanical as Gary (the owner) had been out giving me estimates on the various repairs and modifications I wanted to make. While Gary was out of the office training (again), Laura his admin arranged for Bill to come out on Friday. She provided an estimated cost (right on) and a 2 hour window. Bill showed up on time and after a brief discussion get right to work. Bill spent about 15 mins. systematically determining why the flame would not light. He discovered that there the gas was not making it to the main control valve. He reset the safety shut off valve and the problem was solved. He then checked all the radiators to make sure that hot water was making it throughout the house. After we determined that the upstairs radiators were not getting hot, Bill checked the water pressure and determined that the pressure was insufficient to fill the upstairs radiators in "real time". He suggested that the culprit was the 45 year old water valve and pressure release valve which being cast iron tend to corrode and clog in time. He proposed a replacement solution and priced it out, and offered to pick up the parts and replace the valves that afternoon. I decided to wait a few weeks so I could consider replacing the entire boiler. While we were waiting on the boiler to come up to heat, Bill and I walked through the basement looking at the existing plumbing, tracing the water flow path and discussing the possibility of replacing the hot water tank with a tankless unit. (The hot water run is about 60-65 feet from HW tank to kitchen, bathrooms, etc.) Bill, like Gary, is knowledgeable and informative. I will have Pelletier Mechanical back to do more work.

Water and metal are typically not a good combination, which is why manufacturers take a number of steps to make sure the metal of your boiler system is highly resistant to developing rust. Small spots of rust aren't a huge deal with a boiler as they can often be taken care of, but if you are seeing excessive rust and corrosion on your boiler, it's time to call for help. Too much corrosion can make your boiler very prone to physical breakdown; if there is enough rust and corrosion, your boiler may need to be replaced for both function and safety reasons.

What is a circulating pump?

Steam in a boiler system will move on its own because of the pressure it's under, but hot water must be circulated through the piping of your boiler system; this is where circulating pumps come in. A circulating pump looks and works a lot like a miniature water wheel: water is caught on a small ledge and pushed forward through the system. When a circulating pump isn't working, certain heating outlets will stay cold and leaks may develop, so it's important to call for help as soon as you suspect an issue with any of these pumps.
