We recommend this intermediate step in cases where a burner is malfunctioning or where a system could achieve substantially higher efficiency with a replacement burner alone.
Any home that uses steam or hot water to heat rooms has a boiler.
Air is pushed through the heat exchanger by the “air handler’s” furnace fan and then forced through the ductwork downstream of the heat exchanger.
At the furnace, combustion products are vented out of the building through a flue pipe.

The need for modern mechanical systems is one of the most common reasons to undertake work on historic buildings.
It is possible to replace your system's oil burner without replacing the entire boiler or furnace.From the fuels that heat your home efficiently and economically, to the heating systems that run on them, Skaggs-Walsh is your source for the industry's best Bioheat® fuel, heating oil, boilers, furnaces, hot water heaters, and more.Skaggs-Walsh is very proud to deliver Bioheat® fuel to all our customers.Such work includes upgrading older mechanical systems, improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings, installing new heating, ventilation or air conditioning (HVAC) systems, or—particularly for museums—installing a climate control system with humidification and dehumidification capabilities.Decisions to install new HVAC or climate control systems often result from concern for occupant health and comfort, the desire to make older buildings marketable, or the need to provide specialized environments for operating computers, storing artifacts, or displaying museum collections.
