If you want to heat your home quietly and efficiently, consider a boiler. They are easy to maintain and relatively inexpensive to operate. Unlike a forced-air heating system, boilers do not blow around dust, lint, or other allergens around since they use baseboards or radiators to warm your home.
Basnett Plumbing, Heating & AC offers a wide range of boiler systems to heat your home in Westford, MA and surrounding areas. We know how to properly install, repair, and maintain them, and we have the expertise to choose a system that is right for you
Determining the best type of boiler to install in your home typically depends on your location. We offer different types of boilers:
This is the most common type of residential boiler. Natural gas is affordable and widely available. If you have a natural gas line, we recommend this type of boiler for installation.
For homes without access to natural gas, an oil-powered boiler is an alternative to using an electric boiler. We also replace old oil boilers with newer, more efficient models.
These boilers heat water past the boiling point to produce steam that is distributed by a radiator or radiant floor system. While they are not as common, there is still a use for steam boilers in some homes. Our team at Basnett knows how to install and service oil or natural gas steam boilers.
A boiler has very few moving parts, making it less prone to repairs over a furnace. If you detect a problem with your boiler, call us right away. Some indications there may be an issue include a loss of heat, higher energy bills, dead radiators, or strange noises coming from the tank.
The sooner one of our experts can inspect your boiler, the better chance of avoiding a costly bill. We offer emergency repair services. Always use a professional for boiler repair jobs—safety comes first.
You always want to maintain your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Doing so maximizes the service life of your equipment and helps avoid higher utility bills.
Our Ultimate Service Agreements offer different levels of preventative maintenance plans to meet your needs. Since 1987, our company has serviced HVAC equipment in homes throughout the MetroWest Boston area. Whether you have a boiler or a furnace, it just makes sense to schedule an annual inspection and tune-up.

“The boiler team arrived with a new boiler to install after my current boiler began to leak. Three members worked continuously since they had to maintain heat before leaving. Paul kept me informed at every stage and answered all my questions. They took no breaks the first day as they had to remove and disassemble the old boiler and replace it with the new one. The new boiler was up and working by 4 PM day one. They returned the next morning even in midst of a snowstorm of 7 inches. They finalized the setup, photographed each stage for the permit inspection. They completed the work in mid-afternoon, gave me a debriefing and what to expect with the Pearl assessment and the town fire inspection. They cleaned everything and loaded the original boiler. I helped them out on the slippery driveway by lending them salt to liberate the truck holding the old 400 pound boiler. It is now dry and warm in the boiler room.”

“We had a great experience with Basnett! Our very old boiler finally stopped working right as an October cold snap hit, and every staff member we worked with at Basnett was so helpful and accommodating in getting us set up with a solution. Nancy was very kind and responsive in coordinating our appointments, and John came out during a snowstorm to provide several competitively priced high-efficiency options for replacement. We compared quotes from a few local providers, and John’s suggestions stood out as being both well-priced and well-suited to enhancing the comfort of our particular home. We were thrilled that the Basnett team was able to fit us in for next-week installation during a very busy time, and Paul B did a great job with installation – very professional, communicative, and prompt. Grateful to be sitting in a heated home as I write this review and thankful to the Basnett team for turning a stressful experience into a smooth home upgrade – in addition to working heat, we now have more storage space and better hot water!”
