Boiler Repair, Maintenance & Replacement
A boiler is a great long-lasting heating system for your home. It can be designed to use a variety of fuel sources such as natural gas, propane, oil, electricity or even wood. Boilers are also generally more efficient than standard forced air heating systems, making them a preferable option in areas like Wisconsin that experience long heating seasons. We work with a variety of boiler brands, such as Crown, Smith, Navien, Columbia, Dunkirk, Burnham, IBC, Lochinvar, Triangle Tube, Weil McLain, Peerless and Buderus.

If your boiler isn't working, you can call a licensed and qualified HVAC technician or plumber to come and assess the problem. It's important to choose a professional with experience in working with boilers and who can provide reliable service. Some HVAC companies specialize in boiler repair and installation, so it's a good idea to do some research and choose a reputable company for your repair needs.
The cost to install a natural gas boiler can vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the unit, the complexity of the installation, and the location of the installation. On average, the cost of installing a natural gas boiler can range from $2,500 to $7,500, including labor costs. However, the price may be higher if additional work, such as ductwork or electrical upgrades, is required. It's important to obtain multiple quotes from licensed and reputable HVAC contractors to compare prices and ensure a fair and competitive price.
Whether it's worth installing a gas boiler now depends on various factors, such as the age and condition of your current heating system, your energy bills, and the availability and price of natural gas in your area. Generally, natural gas boilers are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than other heating options, such as oil or electric heating. This means that they can save you money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. However, the upfront cost of installation may be significant. It's essential to do your research, consider your options, and consult with a licensed HVAC contractor to determine if installing a gas boiler is worth it for your specific situation.
Keep your home heated throughout the cold winter months with a natural gas, propane, oil or electric boiler!
Boiler Replacement & Installation
When it comes to getting a boiler installed or your current boiler replaced, there are a few factors you should consider. If you are getting a new boiler to replace a different type of system, you will need to decide what size and type of boiler you will need. If you are getting your home’s boiler replaced, it should be fairly straightforward unless you are switching to a different type of boiler. It is typically more expensive to switch your type of boiler than replace it with the same kind since it will require new connections. However, some fuel sources are more efficient than others, so changing your boiler’s fuel type can save you money in the long run.
Boilers Compared to Other Heating Systems
In comparison to furnaces, boilers are generally more energy efficient. However, getting a boiler installed will initially cost more than getting a furnace installed. In the long run, boilers can usually provide you with lower operating noise, better indoor air quality and consistent heating. When you compare heat pumps and boilers, the pros and cons are fairly equal. To decide whether a heat pump or boiler is the right choice for you, you should consider what each has to offer and what your specific heating needs are.
