What Does it Cost to Replace a Boiler in 2019?

For every year after an initial boiler installation, your boiler, if left unserviced, will start to lose efficiency and may become unreliable in your home or business. Each part of your boiler requires ongoing maintenance and service to ensure it’s running optimally, and should be completed annually. A properly serviced and maintained boiler will last you many years.

Before you decide to replace a seemingly broken boiler, which can be costly, consider working with a certified and insured plumber like Dan di Lembo from Alpha Plumbing. Dan is a professional plumber in Calgary who will help you mitigate the up-front expensive costs of a new boiler by working with what you have in place. By servicing your boiler, Alpha Plumbing will help improve the comfort of your home and may help to reduce heating and utility bills that have grown due to an inefficient boiler.

During an initial consultation, Alpha Plumbing will first help you to determine the best course of action for your boiler; this may include a simple boiler service, replacing key parts of your boiler, or recommending the installation of a new boiler.

Once your boiler has been inspected, the boiler experts at Alpha Plumbing will provide you with an estimate on what it will cost to replace or repair your boiler. There are a couple of costs to consider including:

Standard Boiler Costs and Pricing

The hard cost of purchasing a new boiler can vary significantly. Depending on the type of residential boiler you select, for example a system boiler, combination boiler or standard boiler, your hard cost for the boiler unit itself could range from as little as $2800 and extend much higher. A quick Google search to see the market range of boilers indicates that the average cost of a boiler is roughly $5000 - $7000 however, some units which can be bought online cost as much as $85,000. These are likely more for commercial use, however, and each boiler installation is different. Alpha Plumbing will work hard to get you the best price on both costs and installation by leveraging their close connections with the best boiler brands.

Boiler Installation Costs and Service Fees

In addition to the hard cost to buy a new boiler, there are also installation and service fees. This may include the cost to remove an older boiler if it’s a replacement, or to hook up a gas line if you’re migrating from an oil boiler to a gas boiler. Dan di Lembo and the team of professional plumbers at Alpha Plumbing are all certified to work on your boiler and licensed to complete the necessary gas and water hookups safely - trust the professionals with this project!

Alpha Plumbing is a competitive plumbing and heating company and we strive to provide the best cost possible for our customers. When a boiler expert from Alpha Plumbing visits your home or business, he or she will provide you with an transparent and fair estimate of the service hours it will require to accurately and professionally install your boiler.

Installing a new boiler 2019

Is it time to consider installing a new boiler?

How do you know if you should repair a boiler or replace a boiler? Some basic guidelines include:

The Age of your Boiler

A boiler should likely be replaced every 10 - 15 years. If your boiler has not been serviced and the parts have degraded beyond repair, you may have to replace your boiler earlier.

Have you expanded your home with a renovation?

If you’ve built an addition on your home, your current boiler may not have the resources to evenly heat your entire home. Anytime you do a renovation on your home, you are going to want to take special considerations in protecting your HVAC and plumbing systems, including your boiler.

Rising Heating Costs:

If you’d like to save money on your heating and utilities, you may consider installing a newer, more efficient boiler into your Calgary home.
