seeking referrals for radiator maintenance

A resident on the unit block of Seaton Place NW has this request:

Does anyone still use radiators for heat and have a company they use that they are happy with? I love my radiators and do not want to give them up, but am having a hard time finding people who still work on them.


  1. I used ARS (don't have their number on hand) to do a check up and look at the furnace.


  2. I love my radiator heat. Just had some boiler work done and was very happy with Jay E. Lewis Heating and Air Conditioning, phone 240-229-1313.

  3. Thank you both very much! Very helpful.

  4. Our house (1919) has its original steam radiators and piping, and the boiler is a massive Burnham system that's 25 years old. Definitely not for amateurs - you need old-house experts. We have been very impressed with the work that Foley Mechanical has done to keep our system up to snuff, and recommend them without reservation:
