Older homes and commercial buildings in Boston, MA and surrounding areas often include radiators that produce heat via a steam system. This style of heating was common until the 1920’s. Age, design, and inefficiency of steam heating systems typically makes the upgrade to hot water heating a cost-effective decision. Hot water systems are safer to operate, significantly trim maintenance and running costs, and offer faster response time. Modern hot water options also provide more precision control to further reduce expenses and optimize comfort.
Heating Distribution Services
Specializing in heating distribution, Astra Home Energy is happy to evaluate your steam heating system. Our highly trained professionals can determine the viability of converting to a hot water heating alternative. The complexity of the project depends on the style of radiators and whether you currently rely on a one or two-pipe system. There is the possibility of adapting the existing installation to utilize hot water and avoiding major construction. Replacing the heating system completely is also an option if you’re planning a larger renovation project.
