Patriot Plumbing specializes in hydronic-style heating systems, boiler installations and boiler repairs. Why? Because our years of experience tell us they’re simply the best at warming your rooms and keeping you comfortable when it’s cold outside. In a hydronic heating system, a boiler heats water that generates heat as hot water or steam. It travels through a network of pipes to baseboard heating units, in-floor radiant pipes or radiators that release the heat into your rooms.
Whether your fuel is natural gas, propane or oil, there’s a hydronic system that will work for you. If you’re looking for an efficient and reliable way to keep your property warm all winter, hot water boilers are an excellent option and, we think, preferable to forced-air heating systems. If you have an existing steam heat system with radiators, it uses a steam boiler.
Boilers are highly regarded for their durability and lifespan. Because boilers have relatively few moving parts, they are less prone to breaking down and are generally easier and cheaper to repair than other types of heating systems. They also have long lifespans, often lasting over 20 years, so once you have a good boiler in place, you know you can rely on it for many years to come — as long as you keep up with routine maintenance.
If you have allergies, boilers are a good way to keep the level of allergens down. Other heating systems distribute heat by forcing air through a system of duct work. Along with distributing heat, forced air also circulates dust and other indoor air contaminants. Because boilers circulate hot water through piping, rather than air through duct work, they don’t contribute to indoor air pollution.
Patriot Plumbing offers a great lineup of boilers for you to choose from manufacturers of high-efficiency products such as Energy Kinetics, Burnham, Triangle Tube and Navien, and we’ll make sure the boiler we install matches your needs perfectly. Even though boilers are a long-lasting, durable heat source, no system can last forever. Eventually every boiler will need to be replaced. When that time comes, trust Patriot Plumbing Services for professional advice. We’ll evaluate your needs based on several factors, including proper size and efficiency, and explore options with you so that you can make an informed decision.
“Patriot Plumbing provides very professional, prompt and excellent service. We worked with Mark Johnson who is top notch and extremely knowledgeable. He fixed our 51 year old oil fired boiler in about 1 hour same day on a Saturday for a very reasonable price. When it came time to having to replace the old boiler, Mark provided all of our options and helped us fit everything into our budget. He and his crew worked hard to make sure the job was completed on time and in budget. All of the work was very clean and neat. In the end, the new boiler and copper piping truly looked like a work of art. Mark turned this unfortunate event around and made it into a very pleasant experience for our entire family! I would highly recommend Patriot Plumbing for any type of work whether it be for an emergency repair visit, regular maintenance work, or for a longer term project. Working with Mark at Patriot Plumbing was like having a true friend whom you can trust in the plumbing business! “
“We, at Primus Green Energy™ have developed an innovative Gas-to-Liquids technology that economically produces high value liquids such as gasoline and methanol.

When they came to our house to assess the situation, we found them to be very knowledgeable about the cause of the flood and how it needed to be fixed. When they fixed the issue, the quality of their work was outstanding. They are also very customer-service oriented and professional. I highly recommend using their services!”

In our region of the country, a reliable heating system is something you can’t live without. When your boiler needs repair, count on Patriot Plumbing to promptly, competently and professionally diagnose and fix the problem.
Typical repairs involve circulator pump and zone valve replacements, air removal, expansion tanks, as well as relays and thermostats, relief valves, mixing valves and many others to get your boiler up and running so you’re not without heat for long. Although it’s not always cost-effective to make repairs to an old boiler, in many cases, minor repairs can prolong the life of your unit for many years. We recommend you address any boiler problems at the first sign of trouble. If they’re not allowed to continue, most problems can be diagnosed and the parts replaced. If ignored, however, many times a minor repair can escalate to a major repair in a short time.
Patriot Plumbing is prepared to handle all your heating needs, from installation through repair and replacement. Just give us a call at 908-638-8001.
Conventional heating oil storage tanks eventually need to be replaced. Although they’re designed to last 15 years, corrosive additives in fuel oil are speeding the rate of corrosion and rust, and tanks might not last that long. It’s important to replace your tank before you have a leak or, worse, a failure that winds up costing many thousands of dollars to remediate.
We’re happy to install the replacement heating oil storage tank of your choice, but Patriot Plumbing recommends you go with a Roth double-walled tank, which is backed by a 30-year warranty that includes $2 million insurance for damages resulting from a leak or spill. Constructed of leak-proof, corrosion-resistant galvanized steel on the outside, the rectangular Roth tank has a strong, durable polymer interior shell that won’t break down or contaminate your heating oil. The tank stands upright, taking up less space than horizontal tanks, with oil lines overhead so there’s no risk of tripping on them and creating a leak.
