Boilers and Radiators

home heating boiler in midlothian


Radiator heat, using a boiler, produces extremely hot water or steam travels through the radiator system to emit heat into the rooms.  These radiators emit heat into the room. The advantages include the fact that these heating systems do not produce dust particles or other allergens. In the Midlothian and general Richmond area, radiators are mostly found in older homes. 

Radiators will last for decades and decades! The longevity of a boiler can last anywhere from 20 years to many decades. The lifetime usually depends on how well the boiler has been taken care of. Regular maintenance will increase the life of the boiler. But, as in all heating units, repair may be needed at some time.

Our HVAC technicians are trained to work with boilers. This includes natural gas boilers, electric run boilers and oil fired units. Our HVAC technicians are experienced and well trained on many brands of boilers. We pride ourselves on providing quick and reliable service. Our technicians are paid on a standard wage - not a sales commission. Because of this, you can rest assured our technicians will do everything possible to repair your heating system at a reasonable cost.  


As mentioned before, the lifetime of a boiler can vary depending on the regular maintenance it receives. It is extremely difficult to estimate a normal lifetime for a boiler. But you can rest assured our HVAC technicians will do everything to repair your boiler at a minimal cost.  However, sometimes the unit reaches the end of life and is more cost effective to replace the boiler rather than repair it.
