Calgary Boiler Repair & Maintenance

Boiler Installation, Replacement & Servicing

With our harsh Calgary climate needing no introduction, the boiler is one of the most important items in any home or commercial premises in these parts.

But you probably only start thinking about it when it stops working!

Boiler breakdowns, malfunctions, or inefficiencies create major headaches for property owners.

When a problem occurs, it is usually when we least expect it and when we need its heat the most: mid-winter!

So, regular boiler servicing of your boiler is essential and, if it needs repairing, it cannot wait.

The experienced professionals at Alpha Plumbing have been helping Calgary residents and businesses stay warm for years.

We’ll service your existing boiler, fix a broken one without delay or even help you install a new boiler.

Common boiler problems

If your boiler is not running at maximum efficiency or is in need of repair, it cannot properly do its job of keeping you warm.

An old or neglected boiler can suffer from a variety of issues, including:

  • An inaccurate or faulty thermostat – sometimes causing the boiler to turn on and off randomly
  • Broken parts leading to no heat being generated or leaks
  • Low water levels or low water pressure (a pressure valve may need replacing)
  • Worn-out seals or rusting
  • Making strange sounds such as banging, whistling or gurgling (often due to air in the system)
  • Lime and sludge buildup causing reduced water flow, over-heated water, or malfunctioning radiators
  • Frozen boiler pipes outside the property
  • Gas leakages

Our professional plumbers are trained to identify and fix all of the above types of problems and more if your boiler stops working or is not running at maximum efficiency.

Combustion Anaylsis

An essential part of the boiler repair setup and maintenance:

Combustion analysis is the science of determining, then perfecting the burn on a particular appliance, achieving clean and controlled heat output.

Although it is often overlooked on new installs and routine yearly maintenance, it can be critical to the life of your boiler, furnace or hot water heater. Unfortunately, Gas appliances often get hooked up and simply turned on by the installer, who may assume that the factory has done their job of calibrating the gas-to-air ratio.

If your boiler is constantly full of soot or dirt, you likely have a combustion issue! Let Alpha Plumbing ensure your gas appliances are set up and running correctly.

We use the latest combustion analysis technology to measure the combustion levels, then adjust them so your appliance is optimized both for efficiency and for safety! The result is a gas appliance that achieves clean, complete combustion and burns the exact engineered amount of gas.

Don’t clog up your gas burners and savings account by burning too much gas - let us get you dialed in!

Let Us Help You Optimize Your Gas Appliances

Calgary Boiler Maintenance Service

Boiler inspections and services should be part of your annual routine.

Otherwise, you’re simply waiting for an accident to happen and you may be left without heating in the depths of a Calgary winter.

That means a long, cold day or night and expensive emergency repairs. It might even mean that you have to replace your boiler.

Not a situation any home or business wants.

We believe in prevention. That’s why we can arrange to contact you when your boiler is due for service.

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your boiler is like servicing your car. The better care you take of it, the longer it will last and the better it will perform; and you will avoid nasty accidents!

Pre-empt any problems with regular servicing and head into winter with peace of mind that you won’t be left shivering.

Boiler maintenance and inspection includes:

Our boiler maintenance and inspection services often involve installing the manufacturers' specified OEM maintenance kit.

Typically, a maintenance check will involve:

  • Cleaning the burner
  • Heat exchanger
  • Replacing or cleaning the igniter(s)
  • Performing a combustion analysis of the boiler (which includes a check for carbon monoxide leaks)
  • A multi-point safety check

We maintain, clean, repair, replace and install most types of commercial and residential boilers including:

  • Atmospheric (low) Efficiency Boilers
  • Radiant Floor Heating Boilers

Frequently Asked Boiler Question:

What is the Best Boiler for my Calgary Home?

What is the Best Boiler for my Calgary Home?

Today’s high efficiency condensing boiler systems provide a very attractive option for homeowners looking to update and improve their heating systems.

With the built in capabilities of the boilers we install, it is now entirely possible to heat, supply hot water, and heat your hot tub with one gas appliance. There is no longer the need to pay the expensive utility bills for a furnace, hot water heater and electric spa heater. Not only do today’s highly efficient boilers do the job of three appliances, they are smart enough to throttle down to a minimal firing rate when there is a lesser demand for heat, thus burning much less gas, and saving you money!

When I discovered a gas leak in the line to my stove, Dan came quickly to diagnose and repair it. He was efficient and professional. Once the leak was repaired he checked for carbon monoxide and other possible gas leaks. I feel confident that everything was done to code and that safety was a priority.read more

Dan at Alpha plumbing was great. He responded quickly and booked an appointment to assess a possible leak for the next business day. He was professional and polite, and was very straightforward and honest as he assessed a ceiling stain in our rental home and gave suggestions as to what might be causing it. He made a few simple recommendations that seem to have helped fix the problem. I would definitely recommend Dan to friends and family.read more

Great service, fast and efficient. We had a couple valves replaced and an outside tap replaced. He explained everything before hand then walked me through it afterwards so as there were no surprises. The price was expensive but we had a lot of parts replaced that they needed to supply so it was cheaper then if we'd called another company which we have done in the past. All around great service and very friendly I will certainly call them again for their service.read more

Both times Dan has been clear and efficient with the work that needs to be done. They have been great to deal with and I highly recommend them.read more

The drain was backing waste water up onto the basement floor, so no plumbing could be used in the house. It’s first thing Monday morning and the usual plumber couldn’t come for two days. Within hours, Dan had plumber John assess and fix the situation. Not cheap but the job was done: quickly, efficiently and hopefully long lasting! Think we’ve just found a new plumbing company!!read more

Dan has been looking after our boilers and furnace for a few years now. He is always quick to respond, fixes problems promptly, and leaves everything very clean. He recently installed new boilers for us, and worked around the clock to install them so that we would have minimal interruption of water and heat. He explains everything in a simple manner and we trust his expertise and judgement. We highly recommend Dan!read more

At first we were only looking for a spare part for the boiler for our small business. We called several companies and one of them was Alpha Plumbing. Dan promptly answered the phone and promised to call us back in 15 minutes (I never heard back from some of the other companies I called). He called us right back with the positive answer. We ended up booking an emergency dispatch and repair service with him and both times he showed up on on time, was very professional and efficient. He quoted us upfront and there were no surprises later when paying the bill. We were very satisfied with the service, and would definitely recommend Alpha Plumbing to anyone! I know we will be calling Dan with any plumbing needs for our family business or home. We can sleep better knowing that there is someone who delivers what needs to be done efficiently and on time. Thank you Dan! Adrianaread more

We needed our boiler replaced and I wasn't overly happy with other plumbers who had done work for us. I looked at the Google reviews on Alpha Plumbing and decided to give them a call - sure glad I did!! Dan was extremely knowledgeable, showed up when he was supposed to, gave us options and prices upfront (and even gave us options to save some money!) and was totally professional throughout. We would highly recommend him, and will not use anyone else for future service and repair.read more

Dan is the man. We have been in a high-end rental home for about two years now with an extremely complicated, high-efficiency plumbing and heating system. There is so much equipment in that room I honestly don't know what any of it does. What I do know is that something was beeping in a bad way and now it's not. Dan came in, addressed the heating tank and heating units. He upgraded the systems which hadn't been maintained in a few years and now I can go to sleep without worrying that carbon monoxide is leaking or some other disaster is flooding the room. Thanks!read more

We had Dan come give us a quote on putting a new boiler in our house. We told him up front that we would probably be going with the initial contractor we had in to fix the boiler but wanted to get a second opinion and quote. Dan came right away, took his time answering all our questions and was even complimentary of the work the other contractor had done to set up a short-term hot water solution for us. We couldn't believe what an honest guy he was and how much integrity he had to treat us and the other contractor (his competitor) so well. We definitely recommend him!read more

He arrived onsite when he said he would, was prepared and had materials to fix the issues without having to come back at a later time and was much more affordable than the other quote I received.
