Boiler Replacement and Installation Service

If the boiler in your Alberta home or business is not heating water, underperforming, or otherwise giving you concern, it can be a freezing experience that needs fixing ASAP.

For the best course of action, you need the opinion of independent and professional boiler technicians.

Minor problems can be repaired but persistent or serious problems may require a new boiler installation. This may be more cost-effective and more convenient in the long run.

However, whose advice do you listen to when your boiler needs troubleshooting? At the end of the day, a boiler salesperson wants to just sell boilers!

At Alpha Plumbing, we repair, maintain, and install new boilers and offer considered advice to Calgary, AB, home and business owners about their options.

We detail your options in writing during an initial site visit where we diagnose the boiler problems and assess what can be done.

If a new boiler installation is the best option, we can help you select and install a new one with your needs and budget in mind.

Alpha Plumbing's Boiler Installation

Calgary Boiler Installation for Your Home or Business

There comes a time in most Calgary homes and businesses when it becomes more cost-effective to replace an old boiler than to keep getting it repaired.

But the cost is not the only issue. It’s also highly inconvenient to keep suffering breakdowns or poor performance from your boiler.

Safety is another important consideration. Old boilers with persistent burner and heat exchanger problems may make your old boiler unsafe.

Besides, parts may be hard to source or unavailable, leading to delays in getting your boiler fixed.

When the same issues recur throughout the winter, it’s a sure sign that you need to “bite the bullet” and consider a new boiler installation.

Our team can install new gas boilers in homes and businesses located in the southwest, northwest, southeast, or northeast of Calgary.

Cheque out troubleshooting common gas boiler problems for the tell-tale signs that your old boiler may need replacing.

Benefits of a New Boiler Installation

No heating or hot water in your home or business makes for a miserable and freezing time for Calgary residents.

However, even if your existing boiler has not packed up completely you might consider a new boiler installation if it means:

  • Saving you money on energy bills (gas and electricity)
  • Solving the issue of persistent leaks or other recurring problems
  • A more efficient water-heating system than your older boiler
  • Not having to worry about whether parts are available
  • Heading into future winters with greater peace of mind
  • Taking up less space (new boilers are often more compact)
  • Running more quietly than your older boiler
  • Fewer safety issues
  • Adding significant value to your home

Hydronic Heating Boiler Installation

Hydronic boilers are also known as “radiant heating” and “in-floor heating” systems.

A tubing system sends hot water beneath the floor—either along baseboard heaters or through radiators to heat your property.

This has been a popular choice in Calgary homes and businesses for years because it provides rapid, evenly distributed, and efficient heating to all rooms.

High-Efficiency and Atmospheric Boiler Installation

What Are Atmospheric Boilers?

With atmospheric boilers, combustion air/flue gases are drawn through the boiler without a fan.

They control the heating output according to variable load requirements.

Atmospheric boilers are durable, easy to install and require minimal maintenance and the different sizes available make them a good option for homes or businesses in Calgary.

However, they are of lower efficiency than other available boiler systems.

What’s the Benefit of a High-Efficiency Boiler?

High-efficiency boilers generally use condensing technology. They have several advantages over lower efficiency models:

  • A significant reduction in monthly energy bills—up to 30 to 50 percent immediately
  • Lower emissions—this makes them kinder to the environment
  • Compact design—so they may take up less space than your existing boiler
  • No chimney required—just a short pipe through the side of the property is required

You can weigh up these benefits against the higher upfront cost for this type of boiler.

Combustion Anaylsis

An Essential Part of the New Boiler Installation Process

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 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!

Boiler Frequently Asked Questions

Boiler Questions to Consider Before Installation

🛠️ What’s the difference between a boiler and a water heater?

A boiler’s function is to heat water in order to heat the home. This usually requires water to be heated to very high temperatures.

A water heater specifically heats water for taking showers, for the laundry or for other domestic uses. This does not usually require water to be heated to such high temperatures as with a boiler.

🧰 How do I know if I have a boiler or a water heater?
This is possible using a “combi” boiler system. These are highly efficient, modern systems that negate the need for a separate hot water tank.

Not only are combi systems efficient in terms of energy usage and cost-effective for heating. They can also help save valuable space in your home as they are very compact in design and can be mounted on the wall.

🔧 Can a high-efficiency boiler save me money? What are the other benefits?

👷 How often should I service my boiler?
Your boiler should be serviced once a year. This will prevent problems and extend its life.

🔩 Can a high-efficiency boiler save me money? What are the other benefits?
One of the benefits of a high-efficiency boiler is cost saving. Their extra efficiency means that they require less gas to heat the home effectively and they also lose less energy.

Another benefit is their space-saving ability: units are often compact and wall mountable.

It is worth noting that a specific characteristic of a high-efficiency boiler is that they have an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 90 percent and above.
