Stay Warm Next Winter – Don’t Neglect the Boiler

The versatile, experienced staff of Downtown Plumbing can work on more than plumbing, pipes and fixtures. We also service boilers that heat homes and businesses throughout the Brooklyn area. The boiler heats water to create either hot water or steam, to distributed through pipes to steam radiators, baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems.

One of the most important facts about boilers for any customer, other than keeping you warm in cold weather, is the boiler’s level of efficiency. Boiler efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) — the amount of heat actually delivered to your home or office compared to the amount of fuel used by the boiler. Note that the AFUE refers only to the unit’s fuel efficiency, not its electricity usage.  Energy Star products must have an AFUE rating of 85 percent or greater, meaning that 85 percent of the fuel supplied to the boiler goes directly into heating your home and only 15 percent is wasted.

Downtown Plumbing is proud to offer a wide selection of high efficiency boilers. Contact us today for a recommendation about selecting the right boiler for your residence or commercial property.
