Of course, equipment like this requires that the installation be carried out by a trained professional – and he will guide you through the steps of the process. But it’s still interesting to plan and prepare for this moment so that everything goes smoothly.
All About Boilers

Here you can read a little about the differences between boilers and furnaces. Here are some tips so you can choose the best device for your home and family. If your case is the opposite, that is, you suspect that you will need a boiler replacement soon, read this post. Finally, here you will find some simple but very useful tips to keep your device always working well.
Vancouver Boiler Installation: How to Prepare Yourself
As simple as this process of installing a new device may seem, there are certain particularities to be aware of. For example: are you going to replace your old boiler with a similar model? Or is it different? As we have already explained here, there are conventional boilers, combination and system ones. If you are going to change your old device for one of the same model, this installation is simpler. If not, there are some additional steps in this process.
Also, are you going to keep the device in the same room? If so, that also makes things easier. But if you intend to relocate it, you will also need to assess whether the new location is suitable for the boiler. Either way, be prepared for these three main steps:
- Removal of the Old Boiler
Well, for the new device to be installed, the old one needs to come out, right? You can arrange this step directly with the HVAC technician responsible for the installation – he will be able to help you on the best way to do this, after all, there are companies that can give the correct destination to the old device. To make it easier, leave the path to the boiler clean and free for circulation. That is, remove objects or furniture that may be blocking the way, in addition to leaving the room well lit.
- Installation of the New Boiler
Is your new boiler the same model as the old one and will it also be in the same space? Then this is your lucky day – this type of installation is usually simple and quite fast. In other cases, a professional will need to evaluate the case – especially when we talk about changing the place of installation of the boiler inside the house, it is quite likely that you will need new suitable pipework to receive the new device. In this case, the entire process may take a few days.
- Testing Stage
After the boiler is properly installed, the hard part is over, but you still need to check if the device is working well. In this case, the technician responsible for the installation will carry out the tests to ensure that there are no leaks and that everything is running smoothly. Before he leaves, test the device yourself and ask for tips on how to operate it in the best possible way – this is the ideal time to ask questions and to ensure that your new boiler is in perfect condition.
New Boiler: Warranty and Maintenance
Has your new boiler been installed, tested and is it working well? So make sure you get the information regarding the device’s warranty and take the opportunity to schedule a time for preventive maintenance for the following year. That way, you won’t have to worry about the subsequent months. It is important to point out that every appliance, even the newest ones, needs to be analyzed by an HVAC professional so that it continues to work well and does not pose risks to your family’s health.
