Need help finding a Steam expert in Western, MA

EmilioEmilio Member Posts: 6
Hey everyone! I'm an owner of alone built in 1900 with gas fueled steam. Outside of the boiler (a gas fueled Burnham), piping to said boiler and air vents the system appears original. We are gearing up to reinsulate the pipes after having the badly damaged asbestos removed at the tail end of last heating season. I'd like to find someone who is knowledgable about steam come examine the system and clean/service it prior to insulating while everything is exposed and repairs (if needed) can be performed easily. I've tried the search for contractors page on the site but didn't come up with anyone in my area. I've read dan's "we've got steam heat" and have a pocket rocket and copy of "the art of steam heat" coming my way so I know the questions to ask but I'm hoping to save some time and energy by finding someone trustworthy from the start.

I'm located in South Hadley, MA and willing to comp for travel time as long as the basic service/travel comp is a firm price quoted prior to the appointment (of course any labor/parts required at the of service are excluded and can be quoted during said appointment). Thanks in advance!
