Boilers

Did you know you have more than one choice when it comes to managing your heating in Ottawa?

In lieu of a furnace, some homeowners opt for a boiler.

Installing a boiler that is energy efficient can add up to huge energy savings for your family.

What is a boiler?

A boiler is a heating system that produces water vapor and steam in order to heat your water and your home. The steam from a gas boiler is a very effective and energy efficient way of heating your home because steam passes easily through pipes in comparison to hot water. Many homeowners use a boiler instead of a hot water tank and it can be used as such (a tankless water heater). Therefore, a boiler is part of an HVAC system and provides hot water as well as heating in your home.

With many things to take into consideration, choosing the right boiler for your home and your family’s needs may seem overwhelming. That’s where E.N. Blue steps in. We take the guesswork out of purchasing or financing a gas boiler.

The benefits of using a boiler as part of your HVAC system:

  • Long Lifespan: the average gas boiler lasts anywhere from 15 years to 20 years if well maintained. If your current boiler is more than 10 years old or if it does not have an EnergyStar sticker on it, we recommend having it looked at by an HVAC technician.
  • Better Air Quality: since the hot air from a boiler system is not forced into your living space, minuscule particles and airborne contaminants are greatly reduced.
  • Maintenance: since air is not distributed throughout your home through ducts, there is no need for filter changes and there are fewer needs for replacement parts because of the way the gas boiler system works. A boiler requires very little maintenance by HVAC contractors (but we do recommend having it looked at yearly as a preventative measure).
  • Dual Systems: as we previously mentioned, while heating your home, a boiler is also able to heat your water, as an alternative to a hot water tank or a tankless water heater. This dual system produces huge energy savings for Ottawa homeowners (especially during those frigid winter months).
  • Increased energy efficiency: did you know Ottawa residents are eligible for rebates on the purchase of a new boiler? Read more
