Boilers And Radiant Heating
Many homes in Merrill, Wausau, Marathon, and North Central Wisconsin still rely on boilers for heat. Servicing boilers is tricky. Many heating and cooling companies do not have the needed experience with boiler and radiant heat systems, so finding reliable, honest service can be a challenge.
If your home depends on a boiler system, you can depend on Merrill Sheet Metal Works to service and repair your unit. Our NATE-certified technicians can repair all makes and models of boilers. And we are available should your unit fail at the worst possible time—when the temperature is below zero! Call (715) 536-2262 for immediate assistance.
FAMILIES ARE CHOOSING BOILERS AND RADIANT/HYDRONIC HEATING AS THE WARMTH STAYS CLOSE TO YOU
Many homeowners are choosing boilers and radiant/hydronic heating systems over gas furnaces as they provide more comfort. With forced air heat from a furnace, the warmest part of any room is close to the ceiling. It is the opposite with boilers and hydronic systems, as the heat radiates from near the floor—much closer to where families live and enjoy activities. And if you have radiant heating (tubes under the floors)—who doesn’t like the comfort of bare feet touching a warm floor first thing on a cold winter morning?
HOW DOES HYDRONIC HEATING WORK?
With hydronic heating, warm water from your boiler or water heater circulates throughout your home using baseboard units, radiators, or tubes installed under your home’s floors. This allows the heat to radiate gently throughout each room. Another advantage of hydronic heating is that it reduces airborne dust, particulates, and pollens, which are common with forced-air systems.

SCHEDULE BOILER MAINTENANCE ANNUALLY AND KEEP YOUR UNIT IN GOOD SHAPE
Water quality is key to an efficient boiler heating system, so be sure to have an annual power flush. It removes sludge, rust, and other debris from your heating system, which can help extend its life. If your boiler cuts out regularly, needs resetting, or is excessively noisy, a power flushing service can help to remedy the situation. We also suggest a power flush if you connect a boiler replacement to your old, existing heating system.
