What Exactly Is Boiler Retrofitting?

Boiler Retrofitting can include the removal and replacement of an existing boiler running a heating system to improve reliability, efficiency, and or functionality. One example would be changing a mid-efficiency boiler running in-floor radiant heat to a new stainless steel condensing boiler, this gives the option of targeting the ideal water temperature for the desired load rather than overheating the water and using some form of mixing to achieve the desired temperature.

We can also retrofit components in the system other than the boiler to increase efficiency, serviceability, and overall appearance. These modifications can be small or vast and include automatic air purgers, automatic pressure-reducing fill valves, mixing systems, control systems, and isolation.

Servicing Existing Equipment

Barron has a ton of experience in the world of both residential and commercial boiler service and has spent years perfecting the art. We have the personnel, skills, and tools/equipment to service your current system regardless of age or condition, there is however a point at which this is doing more harm than good, our techs have been trained to have these discussions and present options and outcomes for the future of the system.

Boiler retrofitting isn’t for every home, which is why we need to assess the best course of action when you call us. We offer services like boiler replacement, which is where we can completely remove your old boiler and replace it with a high-efficiency unit that can handle the cold of our winters. We can also provide specialized boiler repairs that aim to fix the problem in your existing boiler, but this kind of work can only go so far.

Boiler retrofitting is a viable solution for sure but it’s going to require your home to be assessed by our team of professionals before any work is done. Then, we’ll tell you if we think your home is up for the task.

Improved Control System

We strive to provide comfort solutions to our customers by working with some of the most advanced control systems on the market today. Previously boiler controls consisted of a thermostat that turned the system on and off based on the temperature in the home. Now we are able to use more recent and advanced features such as outdoor reset, zone synchronization and indoor temperature feedback to provide a space with the amount of heat necessary to make comfort the ultimate outcome.
