Peerless Boiler Install In Rahway NJ

The Cipolla family live in North Brunswick, NJ in a 2-story single family home. They gave Skylands Energy a call because their boiler was no longer working and they did not have any heat. Their boiler broke down when the temperatures suddenly dropped, when they needed their heater the most. They decided to take advantage of our emergency no-heat services to assess what the problem was.

When our HVAC service technician arrived at their home, he found that the heating system had a crack. This was causing it to leak, making the unit irreparable. The best recommendation for a situation like this is a boiler replacement for their North Brunswick, NJ home.

Problem: The Cipolla residence did not have any heat when Skylands Energy arrived at their home. It was extremely cold outside and so fixing their problem quickly was critical. Upon inspection, we identified that they had an older, American Standard boiler. The boiler was cracked and because of the crack, it had been leaking and was not repairable.

Solution: We quickly installed a new Peerless Steam Boiler and got their home warm and comfortable again. They had a great overall experience because the boiler system installation was fast and we were able to find the best and most affordable solution to meet their heating needs.

Issues With A Cracked Boiler

When the Cipolla family gave Skylands Energy a call, they did not have any heat in their home. As mentioned above, their American Standard oil boiler had a crack and the unit was irreparable.

There are many reasons that cause a boiler to crack. Typically, a boiler cracks due to the stress that it endures from years of use.

The Cipolla’s boiler had been in use far past the normal lifespan of a boiler. Therefore, throughout the years of use and the stress placed on the unit, it developed a crack. Stress is, generally, caused by temperature variations. The boiler’s metal expands and contracts until it reaches a point of cracking.

When a boiler cracks or splits, it can lead to major water leaks and water damage in a home. Thankfully, the Cipolla home did not have to deal with water damage. Their boiler did have a leak. This means that they replaced their boiler before it had caused any water damage to their home. Unfortunately, many homeowners face the expense of a boiler replacement, water damage repairs, and mold removal costs at the same time.

A cracked tank is extremely expensive to repair. When a tank has a crack, it is economically wise to replace the unit instead. Since the American Standard boiler that the Cipolla residence had was already old and outdated, they decided that it was better for them to replace it than to take on an expensive repair.

Boiler Replacement: Common Signs

Cracked boilers and a cracked heat exchanger typically requires a complete heating equipment upgrade or replacement. This is when customers need to have a new boiler installed. In a heating system that is combined with a domestic hot water heater, a typical signs that you need a boiler repair or a heat service call is when you have no hot water or the hot water runs out quickly.

One of the best ways to prevent a cracked boiler or the water damage that comes from a cracked boiler is to know some of the signs that indicate the possibility of a replacement. This can save you a lot of stress and headaches that come from going without heat in the middle of winter. Also, it allows you to plan and budget for a new boiler with ample time.

It is important to note that all boilers should receive annual inspections. Skylands Energy offers maintenance services which helps promote your boiler’s performance and energy efficiency, while increasing its lifespan.

All HVAC experts will agree that a heating or cooling system that receives regular maintenance will outlast a system that does not receive maintenance. Additionally, a tune-up reduces repair costs because issues are caught early on. These issues are not given the chance to escalate into major and more costly issues. This goes for all boilers and furnaces including gas boilers, oil boilers, and all types of cooling systems.

Some of the signs that indicate a replacement include:

  • Age: Boilers last about 15 years or more with proper maintenance. Some cast iron boilers can last as long as 20-30 years. However, as a system ages, the efficiency of the unit decreases. Therefore, it is economically smart to invest in a new unit when your boiler reaches the end of its lifespan. A new boiler will allow you to save energy. Therefore, the cost of the new boiler pays for itself quickly with reduced energy costs.
  • Costs: When you notice that your energy costs are increasing, then it may be time to start thinking about a boiler replacement. Not only should you be aware of heating costs, but you should be aware of maintenance costs and repair costs. Frequent repair costs indicate an upcoming major overhaul or replacement. When the costs to repair or maintain your boiler increases, then a new boiler is a better way to spend your money.
  • Noise: When your boiler becomes noisy when operating, then this is sometimes an indication for an upcoming replacement.
  • Discoloration: A yellow flame on a gas burner or black soot on heating oil systems, or oil fired boilers, indicate that the fuel is not burning the way that it should. If your oil fired or gas fired system is displaying discoloration, be sure to give Skylands Energy a call right away. Also, we highly recommend that you install CO detectors throughout your home.
  • Leaks: When a boiler leaks or when you need to add more water due to low water, then this is an indication that you need a boiler upgrade. A leaking boiler leads to water damage and costly floods. It is better to avoid a situation like this by investing in a new boiler.
  • Comfort: When a boiler is on its way out, you will notice that some rooms in your home feel hot and other rooms feel cold. Also, you will notice that some rooms have varying temperatures throughout the day, compromising comfort. If you notice that you are spending a lot of time adjusting your thermostat, then you may need a boiler replacement.

If you notice any of the above signs, then it is time to give us a call. It is better to plan for an upgrade with time than to face an emergency no-heat situation in the middle of the winter. Also, newer units, such as the Peerless WBV-03, provide a high level of comfort, energy efficient operation, reliability, increased property value, and many benefits that an old and outdated boiler is unable to.

Review of Skylands Energy

With the exception of being a little late (if what I thought I was told on the phone was correct) this was a good, quick, painless annual check up and cleaning, tech kept me informed on what he was doing.

Professional, knowledgable, and clean




Review of Skylands Energy

I requested Everett by name because when I had a problem with my boiler in the past, he took the time to figure out what the problem was, and wouldn't leave until I was satisfied. He showed me he really cares, and that is something you hardly see anymore. He certainly knows what he is doing with boilers. Everett is also friendly and personable, and he treats you with respect like you' re family. He takes pride in his work, and he won't leave you with a problem until it is resolved. And it is not only Everett who treats you this way...I feel like family to Skylands, and I intend to request Everett for all my future needs. If others use him, the won't be disappointed.

Review of Skylands Energy

I called at 8:30 reported no heat and I was told I was on the list to have a service person to my house before noon. The repair technician called shortly thereafter and said he would be there in ten minutes, which he was and the furnace was fixed before 11:00. I am a very happy customer!

Oil tank installation




Review of Skylands Energy

The crew arrived exactly at 8am as stated. They were courteous, efficient and informative. I was told the process would take about 5 hours and that's exactly how long it took. I was given the opportunity to ask where I'd like to have the tank installed and wasn't just told "this is where it's going". After the installation everything was shown to me and explained to me. All questions that I had were answered to my satisfaction. Both installers should be commended for what appears to be a job well done.
