Burt’s Reliable can handle all your oil-fired boiler needs

The North Fork of Long Island is noted for harsh winters, what with the nor’easters we get, and some bone-chilling visits from the polar vortex.

That’s why boilers are a great choice for heating your home in our area, whether you live in Hampton Bays or Wading River or anywhere else in the Burt’s Reliable service area.

We will install, maintain and repair your home’s boiler so that you’ll have dependable heat no matter what winter sends our way.

Why boilers work for your Long Island home

Let’s start with the basics of how boilers work. A boiler transfers hot water or steamed heat throughout your home, using pipes that are routed through baseboard heaters, radiators or other sealed pathways.

Because a boiler uses hot water, the heated air it provides is moister than forced-air heat from a furnace. That’s not only nice when you’re dealing with static electricity from your winter clothes and dry skin from the cold, it’s also easier on your home. Over-dry air from a forced-air heating system can damage wood flooring, woodwork and trim, cabinets, furniture, artwork and electronics.

You also get a more even, steady, and comfortable heat with a boiler, rather than intermittent heat as when a forced-air system kicks on and off.

Is it time to upgrade to a new boiler?

If you have an older boiler, upgrading to a new, high-efficiency model makes good sense. Not only will it be more energy-efficient, saving you money on heating oil bills, but it’s more reliable and needs fewer repairs than an old boiler.

Today’s new oil-fired boilers have energy-saving controls that not only reduce your energy usage when it’s not too cold out, but that give you a more even heat with fewer temperature swings.

This is where Burt’s Reliable comes in. We can help you select the right boiler for your North Fork home, install it, provide regular maintenance, and do any needed repairs. And we offer Burt’s Reliable service plans, which can save you money on tune-ups and repairs.

Burt’s Reliable helps you choose the right boiler

If you have an older boiler, your Long Island home has likely had some changes over the years. Maybe you have built an addition to your home. Maybe you have finished the attic and turned it into a master suite, a home office, guest bedrooms or a teen hangout. Maybe you have enclosed that three-season porch to use all year round.

Our experienced and knowledgeable professionals will help you review your home as it is today, your current energy usage and needs, and discuss your future needs—for instance, if you’ll be adding space to your home or finishing unfinished space. With all that information, we can recommend boilers that will fit your current and future needs, your lifestyle and your budget.
