Boiler Repair, Installation and Maintenance

Boilers can increase the energy efficiency in your home and often they have a longer lifespan vs a Water Heater.

Speak to one of our experts to see which option is best for you and your home.

What are the benefits of a residential boiler?

  • It replaces your furnace and water heater, which can save space in your mechanical room.
  • It’s more energy efficient than a water heater. And you’re no longer powering two separate appliances.
  • It has a significantly longer life expectancy than a water heater.
  • Radiant heating provides consistently even heat throughout the home.
  • It creates an uninterrupted supply of hot water.

    Hot water tank regulations are changing to require increasingly more energy efficient models in your home. While this is great for the environment, it can be not-so-great for your wallet. Fortunately, boilers can be an economical solution when compared to the cost of high efficiency water heaters.

    For example, if you have a furnace and a water heater, you’re constantly powering two appliances. And to keep a supply of hot water ready, water heaters need to run all the time. As a result, they’re less efficient than a boiler.

    Most boiler models also come with a lifetime warranty. Because it heats water indirectly, boilers don’t suffer from degradation over time. In comparison, due to hard water conditions in Calgary, hot water tanks experience interior corrosion. To extend the life of a hot water tank, specialized anode rods need to be replaced every 3 to 5 years. Even then, most hot water tanks only last 10 years.

    Maintenance Requirements for Your Boiler

    Like your furnace, boilers should be looked at by a professional for annual maintenance. There are also a few things you can do to ensure everything stays in healthy, working order.

    Once temperatures start to fall below 10 degrees Celsius, turn up your thermostat to test if your house is being thoroughly heated. If not, it’s time to give your local heating specialist a call. The good news is that catching the problem early will save you from cold, sleepless nights later!

    Lastly, you can regularly check the axiom tank, or glycol feeder. Top it up with fluid glycol, as needed.

    Residential Boiler FAQ

    A residential boiler can be a primary heating source for a building, it heats water that can be provided to devices such as  radiators, fan coils and radiant in floor heating.

    The boiler is a crucial element of a home, and homes usually have one or more boilers. The boiler provides heat for the hot water supply and central heating system. 

    The cost of installing a new home boiler can vary depending on what type of boiler is chosen, the size and features and any additional features such as eco-friendly design or remote monitoring.

    A boiler is a necessary appliance in your home which provides heat for your property. It’s important to have the boiler serviced every year to ensure that it’s running efficiently. It is also important to have the boiler serviced if you notice that it’s not keeping the home warm enough.

    If you’re noticing an issue with your boiler, it will be important to have the issue fixed as soon as possible. A technician will be able to determine what is wrong with your boiler and then advise whether a repair will be possible.

    The average lifespan of a boiler is 15-25 years, but that is depending on the type of boiler you have, how regular the unit has been serviced and the quality of the initial installation.

    Boilers work by heating water and sending it through pipes to various rooms in the house or by sending water to additional heating or hydronic products. ‍—‌the more hot water and the more rooms, the bigger and more expensive your boiler will be… ultimately the size of your home or hydronic systems will determine how large the boiler will need be.

    It is important to know this information before making any decisions about buying a new boiler or hydronic system.

    Jason M. at Instant Plumbing has been providing service to my boiler along with other plumbing needs for the past 5 years. Over that time, he has successfully maximized the productive life of the boiler.
    Earlier this year, after performing the annual diagnostic test, it was determined the boiler would finally need to be replaced. Given the scope and cost of the job, I obtained multiple quotes.
    Not only was Instant Plumbing’s quote competitive, Jason spent considerable time helping me understand the elements and associated costs of the various line items of the quotes. Importantly, Instant Plumbing was able to provide critical elements to the job which other companies could not. After selecting Instant Plumbing to perform the boiler replacement, Jason immediately began preparations including detailed drawings (which he also walked me through). The job took a total of 4 full days.
    During the entire 4-day period, Jason and Ben were always professional and respectful of my family and home. I am exceptionally pleased with the end result! Although spending considerable money on a boiler replacement is not optimal, I can certainly now see the value in the quality of the components and the craftsmanship. I also have complete comfort that Instant Plumbing will stand behind the work they perform from prior experience.

    Our boiler stopped working on the Thanksgiving long weekend (ugh). This was our first time calling Instant Plumbing. I can’t say enough good things about this company.

    The level of service far exceeded my expectations and the quality of work is the best I have ever seen! Jason was extremely knowledgeable and professional. They stayed late every day to make sure the job was done on time.

    The final price was exactly as promised. Yes, it was a costly repair but we have a fair-sized home and the quality of supplies they used was top notch. Once you do the math, you realize that the price is actually very reasonable.

    I wish more companies treated their customers as well as Instant Plumbing does.



    Jason and David just completed an install of a new boiler system, complete with a new indirect hot water system.

    The service was excellent and the quality of workmanship went above what I was expecting. I am glad we went with Instant Plumbing and I highly recommend them. I will be using them for any future heating, plumbing or A/C requirements.
