Types of Boiler Systems

While furnaces push warm air through your home’s ductwork, boilers create steam, moving that steam through pipes to disperse heat through radiators or other radiant heat floor systems. Once the steam cools and condenses, it moves back through the boiler, repeating the process until your home heats to the desired temperature.

Boiler systems may utilize several fuel sources. The most popular models are:

Each boiler boasts unique advantages, and most modern units offer much more energy-efficient heat than their older counterparts. Depending on your heating requirements and the system in your home, the knowledgeable technicians from Back Bay Mechanical will help you determine which boiler works best for your needs.

One of the advantages of a boiler system is longevity. While more modern, high-efficiency boilers last around 15 years, older steel or cast iron boilers may last as long as 30 years. However, there may come a point where installing a new boiler is unavoidable. Like any heating system, boilers eventually wear out and need replacing, so trust the professionals at Back Bay Mechanical to walk you through the process. Our technicians can diagnose the issues with your existing boiler unit and recommend the best course of action. 

Our expertise extends to nearly all makes and models of residential boilers, so you can rest assured of being in competent hands as you select your new boiler. We answer any questions you may have and inform you of the costs associated with the boiler installation. Once you’ve chosen your boiler, our experienced technicians install it and provide instructions on operating and caring for the new unit to ensure it lasts for years.

How Do I Know Whether I Need a New Boiler?

In some cases, it’s easy to determine whether you need a new boiler. Critical issues like a cracked heat exchanger require installing a new system. It may also come down to the realization that decreased boiler efficiency and the frequency and cost of repairs are becoming too prohibitive. Besides age or costly repairs, some of the reasons for replacing an old boiler include the following: 


If your boiler valves leak or break, the resulting moisture causes corrosion. While regular maintenance of your boiler helps prevent this from occurring, any corrosion you find usually means it’s time to install a new boiler.

Reduced Efficiency

If your utility bills are higher than normal, or the temperatures in your home fluctuate for no reason, your boiler may be the culprit. If your boiler requires more energy than before to properly heat your home, or temperatures throughout the house vary drastically, it’s a sign that your boiler is nearing the end of its lifespan.

Odd Noises

If your boiler suddenly begins to make banging or clanging noises, such changes typically indicate a leak, blockage, or another systemic issue. While repairs may remedy the problem, a new boiler may be better.


Discovering a leak around your boiler is an issue that needs immediate attention from a licensed and experienced professional. Not only do leaks signify a critical issue with the boiler, but if you fail to address a leaky unit sooner rather than later, you could face the complete failure of the boiler and even flooding around the area in your home.
