High Mark Plumbing can help with maintaining your boilers in Kensington Vancouver BC. We can also install new units if you are thinking of replacing an older boiler or if you want to add one to your home. The warm months are a good time to consider renovating or replacing boilers since they only provide heat – not cooling.
Boilers are an efficient way to heat water for either steam heat or hot water radiators. If you have an energy hungry monster in your basement, now might be a good time to replace it with a newer, more efficient model. Boilers usually come in one of three types: gas, oil or electric. They can be used to provide hot water or steam for steam radiators, hot water radiators or hydronic radiant floor heating – which uses a series of pipes run under the floor. The advantage to installing a new boiler is that it is likely to be more energy efficient than older models, and will save you money in the form of lower utility bills. The newer models also take up less space and have better safety features than the older ones, such as pressure gauges, better safety valves and thermostats. Like water heaters, they come either with a hot water tank – where the water is stored – or they heat the water on demand.
