Boiler Replacement in Vancouver & Surroundings for over 60 Years

People who’ve lived in older Lower Mainland homes often have a lingering fondness for the cozy warmth of the cast-iron radiator -- less dry, less dusty and more comfortable than heat from a forced air system. With more than 60 years in the business, Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating Ltd. is familiar with Vancouver boilers, both old and new, and we know how to help you get the best and longest life from yours. We provide you with complete boiler services ranging from sales and installation to maintenance, repair and replacement of the boiler in your home or business.

Vancouver Boiler Repair: Don’t Wait for an Emergency!

Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating Ltd. offers emergency Vancouver boiler repair. However, you can avoid the inconvenience of a boiler breakdown with seasonal maintenance of your boiler and being alert to the signs of growing strain or trouble in your system, such as:

  • Dripping or leaking, from broken seals, worn-out valves or too high a pressure in the system
  • Noises such as a gurgling or whistling (indicating a build-up of mineral deposits in the boiler) or banging due to air in the system
  • Radiators that don’t heat evenly, usually caused by debris or sludge build-up
  • Random starts and stops, a sign of trouble with the thermostat or other internal components.

If your boiler is fuelled by natural gas or propane, as many Vancouver boilers are, don’t attempt DIY repairs. Your boiler needs the attention of a gas-qualified professional. Call Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating Ltd. for certified Vancouver boiler repair.

Vancouver Boiler Installation or Replacement

Boilers can last for decades with proper maintenance. However, if your boiler has become unreliable or less safe due to age and corrosion or if it has a leak-prone polybutylene radiant piping system (most houses built between 1980 and 1998 do), it may be time to contact Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating Ltd. for a quote on Vancouver boiler installation.

When you make the decision to install a new boiler, you have many choices: while gas boilers are probably the most common, electric, oil and solid fuel boilers can also be good choices for a Vancouver boiler installation. The cost of initial installation can be offset by lower operating and repair costs and there are rebate programs to give homeowners and business owners an incentive to adopt more energy-efficient heating. In addition, most modern boilers are generally smaller than furnaces making them much easier to install in space-challenged Vancouver condos and offices.

Questions about what’s the best size or brand of boiler for your needs? Talk to the Vancouver boiler replacement experts at Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating Ltd. for answers to your heating questions.
