Boilers and radiant heat systems are hydraulic, meaning they use water to transport heat throughout your home. Our job is to understand the subtleties of those hydraulic mechanics in order to install, maintain, or fix your system at an optimal level.
When it comes to boiler installation B&L Ott can advise you in choosing the best gas, propane or oil fueled boiler for your home and budget. We also offer modern boiler models with energy saving features to help you save money on your energy bill. Just like any other machine, a boiler requires routine maintenance to ensure efficiency, safety, and dependability. It is recommended that you have your boiler inspected annually. A quality, well-maintained boiler can last 50-75 years.
