Whether is a replacement of a broken boiler or upgrade of existing boiler there are still many factors that need to be taken into consideration:

The Boiler heating system.

A boiler heating system uses natural gas, propane, or even wood to heat water. The heated water is then circulated around the house through pipes that connect up to radiators, or underfloor tubing systems that provide heat. A boiler can also be invaluable in providing an unlimited hot water supply for home use, such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms.

Heated water from a boiler can also be directed to melt snow and ice build-ups on a driveway, which is makes things much easier in winter! Some boiler models can also extend to heating swimming pools and hot tubs. Many Toronto homes make use of boiler heating systems simply because they provide a reliable heat source, as well as beng very energy efficient.

Should I Buy or Rent One?

The decision to either buy a new boiler, or rent one, comes down to your own unique needs and financial situation. Buying a new model, while costing more upfront, will provide years of trouble-free heating and as an added bonus can increase the value of your home on the real estate market.

Renting or financing a boiler is a convenient option if you do not have the funds immediately at hand to purchase a boiler upfront. Having the option to pay a low regular amount over a set period of time helps many homeowners and it easy to budget for.

How Long Does Installation Take?

The time frame of a boiler installation in Toronto depends on several factors, including:

  • The model of your boiler
  • What appliances you want it to hook your boiler up to
  • The type of home you have
  • Different applications, such as pipe methods and additional boiler accessories

For example, a typical installation that connects a boiler to existing pipes could last only several hours, but a more complex project that requires additional professional work, such as creating zoning controls, adding primary and secondary loops, adding optional boiler accessories will take longer.

When Should I Schedule a Service or Repair?

Like with any other household appliance, a boiler may need fixing if anything goes wrong or a preventative maintenance service. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have at hand a qualified and experienced professional who can undertake boiler repairs and services in Toronto. A standard benchmark for regular maintenance of boilers is every 12 months, by a licensed professional of course.


While it may seem an expensive outgoing, acquiring annual boiler maintenance in Toronto is very much necessary, since the job isn’t a run of the mill DIY task.

When Should I Replace My Boiler?

Many clients choose to upgrade existing boilers when newer models with better energy saving technology become available. Others will be forced to look at replacing their boiler systems when something suddenly goes wrong. If you think that your boiler is not performing as it should there are some telltale signs that could indicate that a boiler replacement for your home in Toronto is imminent…

  • Your house isn’t warm enough, even though you think the boiler is running at maximum output optimal performance.
  • You notice unusual and strange noises coming from your boiler – which could signal that your boiler is experiencing mechanical failure.
