Boiler repairs, maintenance & replacement tips

The boiler that heats your home breaks down and it is the coldest day of the year. It is always when you need it the most when your system fails.

Countless times Home Comfort Canada is called to a Toronto area home due to an emergency No-Heat call that could have been prevented. Emergency service calls are expensive and inconvenient for the homeowner.

A boiler lifespan is typically between 18-22 years if maintained regularly. Being proactive with your home’s heating system will not only save you money in the long run, but will minimize unnecessary hassles.

When is it time to call in the experts?

  • water is leaking onto the floor
  • the boiler is running constantly
  • the boiler keeps shutting off
  • the radiators are really noisy
  • the radiators aren’t evenly and sufficiently hot
  • there is insufficient boiler pressure
  • the pilot light is outviessman-wall-hung-boiler

Is it time for a new Boiler?

If your boiler is nearing the end of it’s lifespan, consider a new energy efficient Viessmann boiler.

When compared with their older counterparts, new boilers:

  • offer improved boiler efficiency
  • use significantly less energy
  • are considerably less expensive to run
  • operate quietly
  • are compact, taking up much less space.

Proper Boiler Maintenance:

An annual maintenance contract will ensure that your whole home heating system is kept in good working order. A properly maintained system will consume less energy and cost less to operate. Ignoring annual maintenance will cause your system to work harder and become noisy. Our technicians will adjust and check all system pressures and check for leaks.

Homeowners shouldn’t attempt to service a boiler system themselves. There is always a danger of scalding or steam burns when working around a boiler system. For this reason boiler and system maintenance and repairs should be left to an experienced and qualified professional. Our HVAC technicians are trained to diagnose problems and safely repair your boiler and radiators.

If you have any questions about choosing a new boiler or if you require boiler maintenance or repairs in Toronto or the GTA, give Home Comfort Canada a call.
