Regular monitoring and Boiler maintenance can prevent most of the breakdown problems to a considerable extent. Boiler system can become susceptible to leaks, pressure and temperature variation, rusting, parts malfunction, and internal contamination.
Radiant heating is one of the most recommended methods of keeping your home warm during cold seasons. The four main reasons homeowners switch to radiant heating are flexibility, efficiency, feasibility, and quality.
Best practices for radiant heating and cooling start from analysis and system design. Calculation of space volume, assessment of external factors (average-maximum-minimum room temperature, condensation, existing ventilation, required insulation, etc), occupancy, required heating/cooling level, and related factors will be helpful. Proximity to heat source (Ex: Boiler) can determine the type of piping to be installed.
Radiant heating is the safest and the most “silent” form of keeping your home warm, hygienic, and refreshing through cold seasons. You can install the system beneath almost all types of flooring. It doesn’t heat the air in your living space. So, you don’t sweat or experience difficulty in breathing. Time required for heating for a given volume of space is the least compared to other modes. Proper insulation can ensure longest heat retention time. So, you can save on energy by its smart utilization.
Most of the calgary boiler issues arise due to the aging of the system, unless the brand you have installed has some internal design and construction problems. The exterior environment where you have installed the boiler, the frequency of preventive maintenance, and the parts replacements can increase the durability of the system or make it prone to frequent issues.
The issues can be minor, major, critical or chronic. You can rectify many of the minor issues with the DIY approach. The other categories require the experienced boiler repair specialist. It is due to the complexity of the problem, difficulty of detection, and the lengthy procedures of repair and part replacements.
No boiler loses the heating capacity abruptly unless the burner or the heat exchanger breaks down completely. Generally, you can experience a drop in the heating temperature. The rate of drop depends on the nature and the intensity of the defect developed within the internal parts.
The gas boiler burner blocks out due to the deposition of the soot. It may happen when the burner is left without cleaning or the burner material has a tendency to accumulate carbon. You can open the metal housing screws from the burner chamber. The first step is to clean the chamber itself. It is better to turn off the fuel supply before.
You can use a soft bristled brush to remove the soot deposition over the burner. Then make use of the soot blower to clean the internals of the burner.
The heat exchanger is one part which gets exposed directly to the flowing water. Hard water and excess of calcium in the water can result in scale deposits. They can reduce the heating rate and the temperature.
You can clean the exchanger using the hard bristled brush after opening the external chamber. If you observe any leaks on the exchanger; there is a probable crack or damage. In such cases you have to call the boiler repair specialist to fix the defect or replace the exchanger.
The uneven heating can develop into no heating condition when the system is left without repairs for a long time. If there is an abrupt drop in heating, or there is no heating at all, you can inspect the outflow pipes, burner, exchanger, and the temperature valves for any defects. Call the boiler repair expert to fix the problem.
Water leaks happen within the boiler due to cracked pipes, broken valves, loose screws, corrosion, or the worn out parts. Leaks can also occur when there is an excess pressure due to the breakdown of the control valve.
The accumulation of the sediment around the internal parts of the valve causes excess of pressure. Over a period of time, the valve screws may become loose and leak. In such cases the safety of the system will be at risk. It is better not to fix the issues using the DIY methods and call the boiler repair expert.
The corroded parts like the pipes, joints, screws, and the other interior parts can also lead to leaks. The volume of leaking could be too trivial to observe in the initial stages. It is only when the problem becomes critical, you can observe the issues. So, it is better to visually inspect the parts regularly and take the preventive measures.
When you open the exterior cabinet and view the boiler’s interiors, it is possible to view only the corrosion on the pipe and part exteriors. But it is not possible to view the internal corrosions. N In such cases, you have to call the boiler repair expert.
The defective pumps in the boiler can result in the internal leaking. The loss of pressure control can often result in explosive conditions. Check the bleed screw, outline nut, housing walls (for cracks), and the other parts of the pump exterior. If you are able to see any cracks, or defects, call the boiler repair expert. He will be able to repair the pump, replace the parts, or replace the entire pump.
The boiler becomes noisy when it gets older. The average lifespan of an excellent boiler will be not more than 20 to 25 years. Though the manufacturers may claim much longer durability, practical experience of the homeowners shows otherwise.
Your first task when the boiler becomes noisy is to check its age. If it’s within the “efficient” period, you can check the internal parts of the boiler.
The accumulation of the hardening elements on the exchanger can cause the boiler to make noises. The solution is to remove the deposits. You can do it with the help of a brush and the cleaning liquid recommended by the OEM.
The screws within the water feeder, extension pipe, drain valve, shutoff valve, assembly parts, and the joints can result in noise. Check if it is possible to tighten the screws and rectify the issues. For this, you will need the right sized OEM toolkit. Refer to the boiler manual and check the tool size and specifications required.
In many cases the tightening of the screws may not fix the issues. Then you have to replace the screws. Unless you are familiar with the part design and the safety factors, it is better to call the boiler repair expert to fix them.
The variable water pressure from the outlet can cause drop in the flow of water though the pipes into the radiant panels. It results in low heating experience. The common causes could be a defect in the circulator pump, relief valve, flow control valve; water feed valve, or even the expansion tank.
In most of the cases it is not possible to identify the exact cause of the pressure variation problem, unless you are an expert in the boiler design and construction. So, it is better to call the boiler expert and get the diagnosis and repair done by him. It helps you save on time and keep the boiler and your home safe.
Radiant heating system is the most efficient mechanism that works on the principles of the Hydronic design and construction. The quality parameters are reliability, flexibility, scalability, and uniform distribution of heat to all the rooms in your home.
The design consists of a heat source boiler uses the natural propane gas or electricity to heat the water in the boiler. It can work at temperatures ranging from 800F to 2000F. The ASTM standard condensing boilers work at an efficiency of 90% and above. They have the capacity for heating the water to the required levels, depending on the external climatic conditions.
The optimized piping layout is designed to match exactly with the construction plan of your building. The highly insulated pipes can carry the hot water from the source to the individual radiant panels in every room. You can control the ambient temperature level in each room, which is independent of the others. The insulation ensures zero loss of heat during the flow through the piping channels.
The radiant heating panel consists of a copper pipe-work, aluminum planks and a cross-brace, and the foil insulation that is installed on the cross-brace. The incoming hot water passes though the copper pipes and heats the panels. The radiant energy is transmitted into the room in the electromagnetic wave range. The waves don’t heat the air molecules in the room directly. Instead, they strike the living and non-living objects within the room to create warmth. The heated object can retain the temperature for a relatively longer period compared to the air molecules which lose heat due to circulation.
As the objects lose the heat due to emission and the temperature drops below the minimum level (as you specify in the controller), the hot water generates the waves to heat the objects to the ambient temperature. The system remains idle during the time between ambient value and the minimum value of the temperature in the room. This system enhances the energy efficiency of the radiant heating panels considerably.
Proper insulation of the room can reduce the heat loss by more than 90%. A professional contractor can insulate the heat escaping points with the synthetic materials.
The panel designer considers the radiant floor area through which the piping is installed. It should preferably cover the living room, drawing room, bedroom, kitchen, and the bathroom. The presence of large size objects like the bed, furniture and fixture on the floor can enhance the heat retention and re-emission during the heating cycle. Concrete, metal, wool, synthetic fibers, polyester, nylon, viscose, leather, foam, PVC, and acrylic materials have the maximum radiation absorbing and retaining capacity. By having objects made of these materials in the room, you can enhance the heating efficiency of the system by multiple times.
Professional radiant system experts can plan the efficient installation in each room depending on the heating requirement. They typically avoid the areas under the wooden furniture since it is bad conductor. Hence the net floor area will cover open surfaces.
The energy coefficient for heating the panels to the ambient temperature requires the smooth flow of the hot water at specific rate per minute. The selection of the right tubes on the panels can enhance the transfer rate even when the water temperature is within the 1000F to the 1500F range.
The radiant heating system can support a vast range of flooring types including the concrete, PVC tiles, asphalt, granite, and marble. The layout of the panels can happen before the installation of the flooring in cases of new house constructions. If the rooms have an existing floor, there is practically no need to remove it unless you are specific about laying the panels beneath the surface.
The radiant heating contractors can layout the panels on top of the existing floor and cover it with an additional layer of the tiles in a customized manner. It is easier for them to maintain the panels and conduct any repair works by removing the top layer of the tiles. The edgings for the tiles provide the required structural stability. The materials used for the tiles can ensure the foot traffic and light to medium weight objects like the furniture and fixtures.
The installation of the radiant panels won’t affect the design or the patterns you wish to have on the floor. In fact the radiation can pass efficiently through the tiling and the carpeting layers without any loss of energy.
If the existing floor in your home is made of concrete and you would like to have a wooden floor on top, it won’t affect the efficiency of the radiant heating system in any way. In fact, the tubing system and the panel can stay above the concrete layer with laminated wooden flooring on top of the panels. They can conduct the radiant heat in an efficient manner without causing any loss of heat during the transmission.
Even if the floor is made from hardwood, it is possible to install an efficient radiant heating system. Here, you need to follow certain quality guidelines for the plywood slab installation which increases the porous nature of the floor and allow maximum thermal radiation to pass through. However, the maximum temperature of the heating could be restricted to less than 900F for the hardwood floors.
Installation of woolen and synthetic carpets above the radiant panels and the tiles can in fact increase the heating efficiency by multiple times. It is due to the heat conducting capacity of the materials. The contractor can install the heat conducting materials like the high quality rubber pads beneath the carpet to ensure no damages to the carpet resins due to the direct heating effect. The combination of the two materials can retain the heat over extended time and transmit it evenly within the room. 3
Radiant heating system has the lowest maintenance costs and the simplest procedures. Regular cleaning and vacuuming can keep the dirt, dust, and the damaging elements away from the floors. The professional radiant heating contractors can perform the maintenance works related to the heating sources, piping, controllers and the heating panels.
HVAC contractor licensing is the first criterion for the selection. Class A contractors have the state permit for the installation, repair, and maintenance of the HVAC systems. Class B contractors have the limitation in the handling of cooling, ventilation and the heating systems. The licensing criteria and the examination methods may vary in the various states. But the certification shall result in the granting of the License. Make sure your contractor has obtained it from the state government authority.
The second criterion is the liability insurance for the property damages and /or personal injuries occurred during the installation, repair and the maintenance procedures. As a homeowner, you will be responsible for paying the part deductibles which will be mentioned in the quote. The two legal criteria enable the HVAC contractor to work on your projects without any hassles. While searching, you need to ensure the fulfillment of the two criteria by the HVAC contractor.
Conformance to the HVAC duct standards, NFPA, OSHA, ANSI, ASTM, and the state energy and mechanical codes are the key technical criteria for the contractor. The staffs working for the contractor should be trained and certified for all the above standards from the state authorized training and certification centers. You can get to know about the details from the company profile in their website. If the contracting company is located in your local region, it is possible to interact with the directly and get the details. You can also read the online reviews about the contractor to know the details.
Read the online client testimonials on the unbiased social media to learn about their experience with the professional service provider (PSP). If you search for installation, repair, or maintenance, it is better to read the related testimonials to evaluate the PSP accurately. But they may not give you the complete description about the contractor from the practical perspective every time. So, you need to go one step ahead and contact the HVAC contractor in his office.
During the personal interaction you can check the licensing, insurance, certification, and the quality standards of the company and the workforce. It is possible to assess their experience and expertise by asking a few simple queries.
The standard is meant for the ventilation control and the fire protection. It describes the fire-proof installation and configuration procedures of the heating, cooling, ventilation and the air conditioning systems. The contractor should have the knowledge about the fire rated floor ceiling assembly, exhaust hood, weather protected opening, access panels, and the exhaust and the discharge systems. Installation of fire-actuated dampers, airstream detectors, inline fans, and the extinguishing equipment should be done according to the NFPA standards. If the contractor can perform these activities, before the HVAC installation, you can depend on the service quality and safety standards of the contractor. Certification from the NFPA is an important criterion which can increase the trust factors of the contractor.
Every state in the USA has its unique energy rating system for the HVAC systems. The goal is to utilize the available resources for generating the optimum energy for the heating and cooling for the entire home. The contractor shall take all the required measures to prevent the loss of energy by recycling the exhaust gasses, excess heat, and the other renewable sources to make the system more fuel efficient. At the same time, he shall take the measures to prevent the exhaust of harmful chemicals, gasses and the other form of emissions to preserve the EPA green standards. You can check the energy rating and green certificates given by the state energy department and the federal EPA. If the contractor has the two certifications, you can consider him for your HVAC projects without any hassles.
The contractor and his team should have the relevant experience in the installation, configuration, repair and maintenance of the HVAC systems for multiple types of homes and apartments. Familiarity with the ASTM-E2690, E2231, C411, and the ANSI/UL standards for the fuel storage and supply, boiler/heater, heat exchange system, dehumidifier, Hydronic systems; supply and return pipes, central cooling and heating systems, and the radiant heating systems is critical and important.
The experienced HVAC contractor should also have the expertise for customizing the system according to the specific design and architecture of your home. If the apartment has a basement, the installation of the fuel storage, boiler/heater, cooler, and the duct base can be done in there. Otherwise, the PSP should have the expertise to design the entire system in an energy efficient manner. You can know about his abilities by contacting the existing customers. You can ask for the client referrals from the contractor company and speak to them before taking a decision. Make sure you have covered all the technical aspects and the costing. You can request them for a personal visit to their apartment and experience the efficiency of the output firsthand. Ask them about the helpdesk and emergency services provided by the PSP.
The HVAC contractor should be able to upscale and downsize the installation and the connections according to your changing requirements in the future. He should be able to upgrade the existing heating and cooling systems to match with the increasing demand by using the most cost competitive methods and quality materials.
An expert HVAC contractor will submit the detailed quote for the installation, repair, and maintenance only after inspecting the installation site/ installed systems. He may give you the referrals for the material and device supplies from the OEM. He shall specify the installation, and labor guarantee according to the State’s HVAC regulations. The device and equipment warranty will be directly from the manufacturer which will be executed by the contractor.
Get the detailed quote from him and compare it with the similar quotes from the other PSPs in your region. Prepare a spreadsheet table to list out the technical, functional, and costing factors for every product, installation, and the related labor. Finally you can take a decision on the best HVAC contractor.

The advanced design and construction features of the residential boilers can preserve the heat generated by the system and transfer it to the radiant network. The intelligent thermostat can turn on when the temperature reaches below the minimum specified value and go to the stand-by mode when the temperature reaches the maximum specified value. It is one way of reducing fuel consumption to generate the same level of heat.
The burner in the residential boiler heats the exchanger with direct connectivity. The loss of energy is nearly zero. It utilizes the fuel to the maximum extent even when the flow rate is kept at the minimum level. The burner material can retain heat over an extended period and transfer it to the exchanger in the standard specified frequency. The automated burner system helps in saving fuel consumption per unit time.
The residential boilers have anti-freezing units built into them near the burner and the heat exchange units. The system uses an efficient ingredient which circulates within the boiler components to prevent equipment damage, besides maintaining the minimum required temperature to avoid freezing of the interior components. Since the system uses the latent heat generated by the system, it doesn’t require separate heating. The other advantage is the utilization of the heat which otherwise would have been lost due to emission.
The thermal conservation units in the boilers can be the heat exchanger, relief valves, thermostat, burner, etc. Their design efficiency makes them retain the heat passed onto them for a longer period. Insulation at the exterior and the points of loss can help trap the heat within. The circulating water can take away the heat and distribute it within the radiant heating network.
The residential boilers have highly efficient pressure valves at the inlet and the outlet positions. They can balance the pressure between the two points based on the flow rate of the input. The modern boilers come with safety pressure gauge which is connected to the valve controller. Any abnormal variation is detected by the sensor and it turns off the flow immediately.
The differential reset control in the system balances the inlet and outlet pressure. When the inflow pressure drops, it may lead to loss of heat in the exchange. The modern systems can reduce the heating rate or turn off the burner at this stage.
Most of the modern residential boilers use digital temperature controllers today. Even those working with the valves have improved their design to match the ASTM safety standards. Auto turn on/off units can prevent the building up of excess temperature at key locations within the boiler.
Residential boiler have the right size and volume capacity to match with your specific requirements. Unlike the traditional heaters, which had one-size fit-all formula, these systems have flexible designs. You can choose the right ones based on your requirement.
The modern residential boilers are scalable in design. They can work at variable efficiency to match with the output requirements. That means you may add specific number of extra heating points to the same boiler with the same efficiency. They can scale up or down to conserve the energy consumption.
The modern systems have intelligent sensors at the connecting points between the water outlet and the radiant network. If the outflow to a particular room stops, it can automatically reduce the heating value by relative units. Moreover, the design helps in distributing the heat to every room evenly.
The core of the residential boiler is built to prevent the combustion loss and transmission loss. Combustion stage loss happens normally at the stack, flue and the blow-down. It can happen due to excess of moisture, radiation, and the material property. The residential boiler has literally eliminated these possibilities with the efficient core material. The construction mechanism can divert more than 99% of the latent heat back into the flowing water through it. In some of the systems, it may be redirected to the storage tank.
The performance efficiency of the residential boiler is due to its energy conversion into heat. Hence, the system may have single or multiple heat exchangers depending on its size. Te first stage of water heating happens before it reaches the primary exchanger. The secondary system placed within a short distance from the cold water inlet can pre-heat it to a warm temperature.
Most of the secondary exchangers work on the heat lost by the interior components to latent loss. Hence, the system doesn’t need the extra supply of energy.
The modern day residential boilers have high resistance to pressure variation, temperature variation, rust, moisture, and other potential risks. Not all the parts of the boiler are made of metal. For example, the internal pipes, electronic controls, knobs, washers and other parts are made from plastic, rubber and other heat insulation units. The loss of heat through these materials is near to zero.
Light weight materials make the installation of residential boilers simple. The compact design allows it to be located within any part of your home that is nearer to the fuel supply pipes.
The modern residential boilers have optimum number of user controls for all the variable parameters. You can set them exactly according to your requirements. They can also work in the auto-mode when you are not sure of the settings to be made. In such cases it automatically sets the values for maximum heat at minimum fuel consumption.
The modern residential boiler design makes it highly safe and protected from external and internal damages. High performance components and parts increase the lifespan for many decades without having to repair or replace. The boiler requires minimal maintenance procedures to keep it working at the highest efficiency. Residential boilers are built to save on the monthly energy bills with their fuel efficient construction. They can convert maximum units of energy into heat within their standard operating cycles.

The best flooring type you choose for the boiler heating system should be able to transmit the ambient heat into the interiors without deforming. The layers should be able to retain the heat over an extended period without getting overheated. It should provide safety to the residents from getting exposed to the radiant heating panel‘s heat with proper shielding. At the same time, it should be flexible to allow any repairs and maintenance procedures related to the panels without any damages to the flooring and the heating system.
Granite has a high level of thermal conductivity, retention and mechanical stability. It can support the high volume of foot traffic due to its hardness factor. It has high resistance to stress, warping, and cracking.
The in floor heating boiler works on the principle of thermodynamic emission of radiation in the infrared zone of the environment. Hence, the system doesn’t heat the air molecules directly from the source. The result is the faster transmission of the waves onto the objects and people present in the room. The materials used in the floor, wall and the ceiling preserve the heat over an extended period after heating. The two factors keep the energy consumption at the minimum level and enhance the heating efficiency and duration.
The low to moderate temperature range required to heat every square inch of your room helps you save on the energy expenses. You can calculate the cost of the conventional heating system with the radiant type for every unit time and every Watt of energy consumed with the output heat per unit time. The cost-effectiveness is due to the heating efficiency. On an average, you can save more than 70% of the cost spent on the conventional furnace heating system.
The residential boiler systems works at an efficiency of more than 95% during peak utilization hours. It may also reach 98% when the load is moderate. This rate is attributed to the minimal loss of heat, consistent pressure, and temperature, optimized energy utilization, etc. The average volume of fuel (gas, solar power, etc.) for heating the water in the boiler is controlled by the consumption /unit time by the radiant heating panels.
By designing the Right now, the Hydronics system is stated to be the most efficient for radiant heating.
The radiant system provides comfort due to its gradual and even heating. There are no abnormal variations in the temperature (rise and drop) at any point in time. The transmission is free from pollutants and harmful elements. It creates a deep sensation of warmth within your body, regardless of the climatic conditions around your home. You don’t sweat or lose the essential fluids from your body due to the
Radiant heating is safe due to its natural heating liquid which is water. The Hydronics system uses this most eco-friendly liquid to transfer the heat from the boiler into the interiors of your room. The consistent and even rate of heating keeps the interiors warm. There are no carbon emissions, no short circuits, no overheating, and no risks to the health and well being of the residents.
The radiant heating infrastructural elements are exposed to the minimum volume of stress during the operations. Pressure and temperature relief valves at the specific locations can balance the flow rate and avoid threshold levels.
They can work in extreme climatic conditions without warping, cracking, deforming, and suffering other structural damages.
Simple maintenance procedures can keep the radiant heating systems in trouble-free working condition. You can rely on the efficiency of the installation and the maintenance team to perform all the corrective and preventive procedures required for balancing the system efficiency.
The radiant heat emanating from the panels gets absorbed quickly by the objects and the human body. The retention period is much longer compared to the conventional heating system. It is because of the fundamental difference in the heating mechanism.
The radiant systems don’t heat the air molecules directly. They transfer the heat directly onto the bodies of the objects and people in the room. Hence, the minimum temperature can create warmth. The solid objects retain the heat over the extended period. Of course, the air particles also get heated. But it is due to the heat emitted by the objects when they start cooling. This cycle extends the time for which eh warmth within the room remains at comfortable levels.
The heat retention period depends on the installation method and the insulation procedures adopted by the engineers. They can help you save on costs per unit of heating and improve efficiency.
As most residents of Vancouver are aware of, there’s no shortage of plumbers around. While having your pick of plumber might seem like a good thing, too many choices can also create confusion and uncertainty around who is most qualified to take on your specific plumbing challenges.
To help you navigate your options and make the decision a little bit easier, here are 5 signs of a sound plumbing company.
Because choosing the right plumber out of a sea of many is a good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless, here are some guidelines to help homeowners cut through the spin and gain a real idea about the legitimacy of a plumbing company.
It’s the oldest and most straightforward qualifications, but it also holds the most weight. Don’t be fooled: rock solid plumbing companies stay in business for the long haul. Which makes the longevity of a plumbing company one of the first things to look for.
