Common Questions About Hamilton Boiler Installation
While boilers are a timeless HVAC system, they’re often new to those who choose to install one in their home. Here are a few of our most commonly asked questions about boilers and boiler installation and our experts’ answers.
Boilers often have a lifespan of around 10-15 years, after that allotted time, they begin to break down from years of wear and tear. If your boiler is over 15 years old and is exhibiting these symptoms, it may be time for boiler replacement and installation:
- Your boiler is making strange sounds
- Your home isn’t being heated adequately anymore
- Your boiler is requiring more maintenance and repair than it used to
- Your boiler smells funny
- Your boiler is leaking
- You’ve noticed an increase in energy bills
The price of a new boiler averages about $8,000 – $10,000, however, this is dependent on several factors including boiler size, overall efficiency, and scope of the job. The initial cost of the boiler includes professional installation as well as a one-year warranty.
No. Unless you are a registered HVAC technician, you should never attempt boiler replacement, installation, maintenance, or repair on your own. By attempting to do so, you’re putting yourself and your family at serious risk of injury or health issues.
A boiler’s lifespan is on average about 15 years.
Even though boilers use hot water to function, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your home is going to be more humid than the average house. You may still require a humidifier if your home is particularly dry.
The size of boiler that you need is dependent on several factors including the size of your home, the type of radiators you have (cast iron or baseboard), the windows, your home’s insulation, and your personal needs. When deciding on installing a new boiler, talk to one of our many experts in our showroom or online, they will be happy to help you make the decision.

Types Of Boilers
Before choosing the right boiler for your home, it’s best to understand boilers and how they work to make an educated decision. There are three types of boilers, and while they all heat your home by sending hot water through radiators, each version is a little bit different from the others. Here’s what you need to know.
A high-efficiency boiler is the most efficient option for when you’re considering boiler installation. A high-efficiency boiler vents directly outside and provides a higher efficiency level (+90%) than a conventional boiler (60-70%), can be wall hung or installed in a smaller space.
A combination boiler often embodies the best of both worlds. A combination boiler acts as a hi-efficiency space heater and a water heater. This provides a high level of efficiency and saves space. The water from the boiler sends the warm water directly through your home without the need for a storage tank.
It’s important to note that all new modern boilers are condensing models. Previous non-condensing boilers pull air from the room it’s in, while a condensing boiler is sealed and brings in air from outside with an exterior pipe and vents directly to the outside. This ultimately provides a safer environment.
