Boiler Installation & Repair in Metro Vancouver

Is your boiler or furnace not working? Need it repaired or replaced? With any boiler or furnace, there are certain areas that can malfunction and stop the heating of your water supply or home. The last thing you need, especially in the middle of winter, is for your hot water and heat to stop working.

Common Problems With Boilers And Furnaces That You Might Have

All kinds of things can go wrong with boilers and furnaces. Be sure to identify what exactly is wrong with your boiler system before moving forward. The process of diagnosing the issue is critical as you will want to ensure that past issues don’t arise again with a new or repaired boiler.

Here are some common boiler and furnace problems you might have:

  • The heat exchangers are plugged
  • A heat exchanger is cracked
  • The zone valve motors have worn out
  • The thermostat doesn’t work
  • The ignition module is dirty
  • The thermocouple is worn out

What To Look For In A New Boiler

While boiler systems can be simple or elaborate, boilers today are smaller in size for the purposes of efficiency.

Boilers and Energy Efficiency

Boilers today can be retrofitted to be more energy efficient. However, new boilers have special features that can also be energy efficient.

  • Electronic Ignition – This eliminates the need to have the pilot light burning continuously.
  • Condensing Combustion Technology – This helps give you more heat for the same amount of fuel used.
  • Sealed Combustion – This reduces drafts.

Cost Of A New Boiler

The cost of a new boiler can range between $4,000 and $20,000. Why such a large range, you ask? There are plenty of variables that get figured into the cost. For example, the square footage of your house matters. How efficient of a boiler you’re looking for matters.
