I have a contractor friend who has an elderly father-in-law in this town that needs a new boiler. Any of you work this area or know of someone who does?
Thanks in advance.

    It's a good 3 hour drive, I wonder if @Ironman or @Steamhead (off the top of my head) are any closer?

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    What a guy!

    Rich was willing to drive two hours and take a one hour ferry ride to do the work. Thanks for the great offer, Rich. We had a good long talk on the phone and it was nice to connect.

    The children of the owner decided to put mini-splits in every room.

    All is saved! They've reconsidered!

    See, Steamhead: You can fix stupid. Actually, it has nothing to do with stupid in this case. Ninety year old father, 4,000 miles away with winter approaching, knowing nothing about heating, no radiant contractors in the area.

    Let us know how it goes, Rich.
