Boilers: Should You Invest in a New One?

A house would not be a home without a boiler. Without one, you couldn’t keep warm during those frigid Toronto winters. When your boiler starts to give you trouble it may be time to consider a new boiler installation before it is completely out of commission. Make the investment now before you find the winter weather creeping into your home.

Just a couple of reasons an upgrade is worth the investment:

  • New Boilers can be wall mounted and save a lot of floor space

  • New Boiler Condensing technology has up to a 95% AFUE, saving you money

  • Old Boiler systems are often over sized and using way more natural gas than needed

  • New Boilers can be more precisely configured to drastically reduce repairs and heat more efficiently

  • New Boilers can be installed that also heat your domestic hot water saving you money and space

5 Signs It’s Time for a New Boiler Installation


Age of Your Boiler The life span of a boiler is typically 15 to 20 years. Take a moment to determine the age of your boiler. If it is pushing its life expectancy you may want to think about a new boiler installation before your current one fails you. By taking this pre-emptive measure, you can take the time to investigate which boiler is best for your home and financially plan for this new investment.


What Types of Boilers are Available?

Boiler Technology has come along way and practical uses for boilers have changed over the years. Boilers are being installed in newer homes more often to run In Floor Heating, Snow Melt Systems, Hydronic Forced Air Systems and yes even new radiators. Many new home design are preferring a more open concept with high symmetrical looking ceilings where large duct bulk heads just wont do. Also many older and century homes rely solely on a boiler for heating their cast-iron radiators and baseboard radiators. These are some styles of boilers available to choose from.


Many home owners are choosing to install combi boilers. These type of boilers not only provide the heating for your radiators or infloor heating loop, it provides domestic hot water. This means you end up with a boiler and tankless water heater in one. This type of boiler will save a lot of space in your basement, they provide higher efficient water heating than a typical storage hot water heater. They can also help you save if you consider that you will no longer need to rent that old tank anymore.

Combi Boiler, Boiler + Domestic Hot Water Heating. It is a 2 in 1 system.
