If you have a boiler in your basement or a closet in your home, you have probably already cranked it up and have it in service. The winter season is upon us, with its shorter days and colder weather. Complete Mechancial, Inc., is available for boiler service in Seattle, whether you have one of the huge, old monsters from the 1950s or one of the sleek modern boilers.
Boilers are not new technology, but the new boilers are much more compact and easier to operate than the old models. Perhaps you are old enough to remember the huge contraption that sat in the corner of an apartment building or school basement. It was probably fired with coal or gas, and had insulated pipes that stretched out in all directions. Modern boilers are usually gas or electric, are much more compact and are set up with better safety valves and release plugs than the old ones. In addition, they have easy-to-read pressure gauges and thermostats for less stressful operation. With that said, the pipes leading away from them still operate in much the same way as the old boilers. They are used to either produce hot water for a radiant heat system or steam for a steam radiator system. That means that they are still subject to mineral buildup in the lines, to leaks and to the inevitable knocking that often goes with steam heat.
By this time of year, you’ve probably already had your regular furnace service. However, should you need boiler service in Seattle, you can call Complete Mechanical at (206)337-2360. Modern boilers are fairly stable, but if you have any question at all about the operation of your boiler, don’t hesitate. We are available after hours and on weekends for those emergency calls.
