Boilers in Des Moines, IA

Schaal Plumbing, Heating and Cooling - Boilers

With all of the options available for heating one’s home in this day and age, many a homeowner may find him- or herself wondering if the boiler is still a relevant option to consider. The answer is an unequivocal “yes.” Boilers are as popular as they are after all of this time for a good reason—actually, for many good reasons.

Before you can fully understand how it is that a boiler can benefit you, though, you must first understand that no boiler, regardless of make or model, is going to function as efficiently and effectively as possible if it is not installed and serviced by a trained professional. All that you have to do to ensure that your boiler is expertly installed and serviced, fortunately, is to dial our number. When Schaal Plumbing, Heating and Cooling completes your boiler services you can count on the job being done right.

Schaal Plumbing, Heating and Cooling offers a variety of heating services near Des Moines, IA and the surrounding areas, including:

How Does a Boiler Work?

Boilers are among the most straightforward of all available home heating systems. In fact, it is this relative simplicity that is one of the boiler’s main selling points. Essentially, the boiler does just what you’d expect it to: heat water. While not all boilers will actually boil water, those using steam radiators in order to distribute heat throughout a house will. Other systems may use hydronic heating setups in order to circulate hot, but not boiling, water throughout the home. Installed beneath floors or behind walls, this tubing transfers heat to the walls and floors of a home, from whence that heat then transfers to bodies and objects within the living space. This radiant heating is the preferred heating method of many.

You Need a Professional Boiler Installation or Replacement

The installation of a boiler, no matter how simple the operation of such a system may sound in theory, is something that only a highly skilled, trained and experienced professional can handle. Under no circumstances should you ever allow an unqualified or underqualified party to install or replace a boiler in your home. Not only will the boiler fail to operate as effectively and reliably as it should if it is not professionally sized and installed, but it may not even operate safely. When installed or replaced by a trained professional in Des Moines, your boiler will help you to live in great comfort, with great dependability, during even the coldest nights of the year.

We Also Offer Boiler Repair and Maintenance Services

With far fewer moving components to consider than furnaces or heat pumps, the boiler is typically one of the most reliable of all home heating systems. No heater is perfect, though, and you can expect to encounter an operational problem of some sort with your boiler eventually. Whatever it is that tips you off to any such problems, make sure that you dial our number as soon as possible. The sooner that we repair your boiler, the better off your system is likely to be.
