Boiler Systems

In a hot water heating system, the boiler plays a central role as it heats the water or steam that is then circulated around the house. Because of this, you want and need a boiler that is reliable and delivers service every day. The boilers, installed by Carlson Mechanical, are from trusted leading boiler manufacturers, such as Lochinvar, Burnham, Viessmann and Triangle Tube. 

It’s important to know that not everyone installs boilers the same way!

Using the latest technology, combined with proven, time-tested engineering, Carlson Mechanical has developed its own unique installation method to provide maximum comfort and last for the life of your Seattle area home.

Why is annual service important?

You rely on your home’s heating and cooling system to work without fail so it is a big inconvenience when you turn it on and it doesn’t work. As one of the hardest working pieces of equipment in your house or business, a boiler benefits greatly from regular maintenance. Annual maintenance of your boiler can prevent unwanted breakdowns by catching a small problem before it becomes a large problem and more expensive to fix. As a bonus, you can hopefully avoid the unpleasant surprise of no heat in your house and rushing to find a company to fix it on short notice.

Schedule Backflow Testing for your boiler

We offer backflow testing for boilers in Seattle and the surrounding areas from Everett to Snohomish to the Eastside. Backflow testing is required to be done on all boilers once a year.

When you receive notice from the Public Health Department, you have 90 days to get it tested or your water will get shut off so schedule testing today.

Historic homes are our specialty

If your home was built in the late 19th century to early 20th century, Carlson Mechanical is the place to call when you are having trouble with your heating system. Many of these older homes still have the original gravity hot water or steam heating systems and not everyone has experience repairing these types of systems, but Carlson Mechanical does. Our area of expertise has always been repairing steam boiler systems and sometimes upgrading them to a newer, more efficient gas boiler system. Whatever your needs, our plumbers and boiler mechanics understand older systems and can fix the problem, however complex.
