Calgary Boiler Installation

Calgary locals are all too familiar with brutal winters and the unexpected deep freeze. Fluctuating temperatures mean that preparation is key for homeowners who require heat at the drop of a hat. That’s just one reason boilers are such an important part of living in this great city, and for Calgary, boiler installation is something to always keep in mind. Staying on top of proper monthly maintenance and annual inspections can help ensure your unit is in working shape year-round.

Even though boilers are so critical to comfortable living in Calgary, many homeowners don’t think about theirs until it’s too late. Noticing a lack of hot water or the disappearance of their radiant heating, residents find themselves facing larger issues than they’d like—or unplanned expenses they didn’t budget for.

But while staying on top of monthly and annual maintenance is key to avoiding these issues, we know it’s not always possible. Life happens and so do emergencies. That’s why we offer 24/7 emergency service for all of your boiler repairs that need immediate attention. For larger jobs such as unit replacement, you can count on our dependable Calgary HVAC professionals for installation.

Air West Mechanical has been serving Calgary and Western Canada for years. Our management team has 35+ years of experience in their industry, and we employ the same number of journeymen as we do apprentices to provide the kind of service your city needs.

  • Your floor heating isn't working
  • There is restricted water flow
  • The unit’s seals are worn out or rusting
  • You’re noticing whistling, gurgling, or banging sounds
  • Your water is overly hot
  • Your unit has trouble heating water (problem with heat exchanger)

FAQs About Calgary Boiler Installation

What is a Boiler Used For?

Simply put, boilers heat water. They produce either hot water or steam to heat your home, which is delivered through your pipes to steam-powered radiators. The hot water generated by your unit can be sent through radiant floor systems. They can also heat air by heating a coil. In Calgary, there’s nothing quite like warm, heated floors on icy cold days, and because of boilers’ energy efficiency, you’ll notice a lower energy bill than with electric-powered heating. 

Keep in mind that commercial and residential boiler installations in Calgary vary in sizes.

What Happens During a Calgary Boiler Installation?

The first step to getting your new unit installed is talking with one of our experts to get a free estimate. During this initial appointment, one of our boiler service technicians will assess your current setup and discuss your options for a new one. We’ll take your budget, home size, and energy efficiency needs into account and work with you to find the best option for your home.

Whether you are replacing a broken unit, upgrading to a more energy efficient model, or installing one for the first time, we can help. During a boiler installation, Calgary service technicians will arrive at your home with a new system, ready to begin. 

What can you expect during your service?

  1. We will remove your old unit. This process usually isn’t too complicated and is fairly quick to complete.
  2. Next, we will flush and clean your system to ensure your water stays as clean as possible. This step will also prevent any dirt or debris from damaging your new boiler.
  3. If you are upgrading an outdated model, we may need to change your existing pipework to fit the requirements of your new system.
  4. Your unit will be fitted either in the same location as your previous one, or in a new preferred location. Keep in mind that it’s easier and takes less time to install it in the same location, but it’s entirely possible to choose a new location that serves your household’s needs better.
  5. After your boiler is fitted, we will work on installing accessories such as a system filter. The filter will stop debris from entering and building up over time. It will also help prevent corrosion and keep your system in great shape for longer.
  6. When everything is set up, we will commission your new system to ensure everything is working as it should.
  7. We’ll walk you through how to operate the unit and its controls, along with how to perform regular maintenance tests. We won’t leave until you feel confident.
  8. When we leave, it’s up to you to register your boiler with the manufacturer. Doing so will give you access to the warranty they offer.

After we finish the installation and give you a run-through of how your unit works, we will take your old system with us so you never have to worry about it. We’ll also be sure to clean up our mess to ensure you have excellent service from start to finish.

Do I Need an Electrician to Install a Boiler System?

There are many different steps required during the boiler installation, and some of them require an electrician. Our expert technicians have you covered throughout the entire process. We can not only ensure your old unit is detached safely, but we also install your new one safely and perform all the final wiring.


That’s why it’s important to choose a mechanical company like us for Calgary boiler installation. We are skilled in our trade and have the experience required to get the job done correctly without putting you or your family at risk.

How Long Does a Calgary Boiler Installation Take?

When choosing a trained professional like Air West Mechanical, your boiler installation will only take a couple of hours if you are replacing an old unit with one of the same system and fuel type. Those who are installing a boiler for the first time or choosing one with a different fuel type should expect a slightly longer installation time from one to two days.

Want to move your new boiler to a different location in your home? This could take up to 4 days. To get an accurate idea of how long your installation could take, give our dedicated team a call. We’re happy to help walk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect on your service day.

How Long Do Boilers Usually Last?

You should expect to get about ten to 20 years from your new boiler. Of course, this depends on how well you care for it and if you have all the proper filtration accessories installed. Looking for a high efficiency boiler? Expect up to 15 years of use without a hitch. However, as your unit ages, be prepared for less efficiency. When this happens, you’ll know it’s time to replace your system. That’s when you call us. We’ll help you find the right replacement unit for your home.

Do Boilers Need Maintenance?

In short, yes, boiler maintenance is important. Especially if you want yours to last a full ten to 20 years. Like any piece of equipment, the better you care for your boiler, the longer it will last, and once we install yours, it’s up to you to perform proper maintenance throughout its lifespan. Before we leave, we’ll make sure you know exactly how to operate your boiler and do this, making maintenance quick and painless. Read on for some tips to keep your boiler in tip-top shape.

  1. Do not store any items near your unit. This poses a risk of fire. You should also ensure the area is clean and free from dust and debris.
  2. Inspect the area for leaks. Check the area your boiler is in once per month. If water is leaking, give us a call to properly inspect the situation. You may require a Calgary boiler repair service.
  3. Listen to the way your boiler sounds once per month. If something seems off, let us know. There should be no abnormal vibrations or noises.
  4. Look at the readings at least once a month. Make sure the pressure and temperature readers fall within their set range.
  5. Call us for an annual inspection. While your monthly inspections can help prevent larger issues from happening, you should still have a licensed professional check your boiler each year. 

If at any time you become concerned about how your boiler is operating, you can count on our reliable Calgary boiler services. We’ll be there to check over your system more thoroughly, and our expert eyes mean we may be able to identify issues you haven’t been trained to. Before calling us, be sure that your thermostat is working correctly, that your pilot light is on, and that your fuel source is operating throughout your home. If all are up and running, there could be a larger issue at play.

Is it Cheaper to Repair or Get a Boiler Replacement?

This is a tricky question because even though some repairs cost less than replacing an entire boiler, your system may be so out of shape that it makes more sense to replace it. How can you tell? A quick service call with our expert team will help. As long as your boiler is reliable and usually works fine, we’ll most likely recommend a repair. If your system is outdated or inefficient, we’ll help you find a replacement. Call us to get a free quote and discuss pricing for your service.  

Should I Get a Boiler?

Boilers are an excellent choice for Calgary residents. Condensing boilers are highly energy efficient and have a range of uses within your home. From radiant heat to melting icy driveways, getting a boiler is a smart decision for homeowners in our cold climate.

"Great experience with AWM! They did a complete overhaul of my utility room, installing a new furnace and tankless water system. AWM went above and beyond, installing several new fittings and quality materials right down to the fasteners. There were a lot of extras they took care to address. They were extremely timely and informative to all my questions. I would highly recommend AWM"
