Why Are Plumbers In CT Involved in Heating?

Older heating systems where boilers pumped hot water through pipes and into cast iron heating registers (which still exist here in Connecticut) were essentially closed water piping systems. Plumbers then typically worked with installing and repairing these heating systems. As heating technology advanced plumbers trained in the latest systems to keep pace.

Today’s gas furnace systems still rely on traditional plumbing and pipe fitting for gas lines and, due to the potential dangers of gas leaks, plumbers are trained and certified specifically for gas. Modern forced air heating systems are still a form of plumbing where ducts act as air pipes flowing warm air through your house. Hydrodynamic flow rates still apply to air as they do water or gas.

Many dedicated HVAC companies forgo the the plumbing side of things yet may sub-contract out to a plumber at times to install certain parts of gas and water systems. Some in floor heating systems use hot water piping throughout the floor and plumbers install those systems too.

These are reasons why many plumbing companies, like us here are Advance, are both plumbing and heating experts. Beyond the pipes and ducts aspect of heating our technicians are also experienced with furnaces, burners and air handler fan systems. You can rely on us for all your home heating needs.
