How Do I Bleed My Radiators?

A boiler is a popular type of home heating system that creates central heat using water, and many boilers work by sending the heat to radiators throughout the home. The boiler must maintain an optimal pressure level, or balance between water and air, to function properly and efficiently. When pressure levels get too low, your heater may completely cut off. On the other hand, high pressure may cause the system to overload and fail. Continue reading to learn more about high boiler pressure and how you can reduce it by bleeding your radiators.

3 AC Options for Radiator Heated Homes

Radiators are wonderful for heating your home and keeping you warm throughout the winter. Put simply, radiators work by using a boiler system that heats up water which is sent through pipes that connect to the radiators around your home. Unfortunately, this means there's no ductwork, which can make it difficult to add air conditioning to your home.

Ductless Mini-Splits: A Safe Alternative to Cast-Iron Radiators

Cast-iron, steam radiators are not common in newly built homes but are still present in many older homes and apartment buildings. While they can be a great source of heat, the steam and the scalding hot cast-iron also present the risk of serious injuries and even death. A ductless mini-split system, on the other hand, is a safe alternative that can be installed in any home.

Replacing HVAC Equipment In Older Homes

We love working with people who have older homes and would like to replace existing equipment or add additional systems.
Because we started as an oil service company, most of our customers had older homes with hot water boilers with baseboard or radiator heating systems that were equally outdated -- some as old as 50 to 60 years old. Many of these boilers were as a big as a small car and are extremely inefficient, and we have replaced many of them with new high efficiency units a third the size. In a lot of these cases, we installed an indirect domestic hot water tank and have seen reductions in oil usage as high as 40 percent.

Is it worth adding Central Air Conditioning for resale?

In the past couple of months we have had an increasing number of people who are calling us about adding central air conditioning, strictly as a benefit for resale of their homes. The majority of these calls are older homes with hydronic heating with either baseboards or radiators and no existing duct work. In most cases these people are looking for high velocity or Mitsubishi ductless splits systems which our company has come to specialize in. These systems use no duct work at all or use compact air handlers and small 2 inch duct work which can be installed in existing homes with little or no modification to the existing structure.
