My family just moved into a house that has a boiler and fin-tube
heating elements around the house. Some of these are in relatively
good shape, but others could use a good cleaning. I do not know when
the last time the unit(s) had been cleaned, so I'm evaluating
contractors in the area (for the boiler and associated parts).
Some of the fin-tubes are in better shape than others...should I put
in the elbow grease to clean them myself, or are there considerations
that would warrent spending the money to have someone else do it
(i.e., are there special tools necessary, or would vaccuming and "dust
busting" be all that's necessary)?
Thanks in advance.
