So Don’t Worry, We Know Our Stuff
There was a time when your boiler could heat your home without a hitch. But now, you’re lucky if you get through the season without needing to repair it.
If your boiler is older and frequently malfunctioning, you’ll want to consider replacing it. In addition to the repair costs, an older unit will work less efficiently and increase your energy bills. With a new unit, you can have peace of mind that you aren’t paying more to heat your home than you should be.

How Long Do Boilers Normally Last?
Boilers typically last about 15 years. Ultimately, the lifespan of your boiler will depend on a number of factors, including how much you use your boiler, the conditions in which it is run and how well you maintain the unit over time.
When Should I Replace My Boiler?
If there’s a problem with your boiler and it’s relatively new, there’s a good chance we can repair it. But if the unit is older and breaking down frequently, it will cost you less in the long run to replace your boiler than it will to hold on to it.
You’ll want to consider replacing your boiler if:
- It’s more than 15 years old.
- It requires frequent repair work.
- It’s not adequately heating your home, despite several repairs.
- The boiler has several leaks that are impacting its efficiency.
- The pilot light flame is yellow (it should always be blue). A yellow flame means your unit is producing carbon monoxide. If this is happening in your home, call a professional immediately.
We Install All Types of Boilers
Replacing boilers in the Rochester, MN, area since 1976, we specialize in the three main types of boiler installations, including:
Traditional heat-only boilers have a two-tank system. One tank stores cold water, and the other is used to maintain the normal water level of your home’s central heating system. Traditional boilers are beneficial because they are able to keep up with a Minnesota winter’s heating demands. These systems are also compatible with older heating systems. The downside to owning a traditional boiler is that it can take up a lot of space and it will consume more energy than other alternatives if the tank isn’t properly insulated.
System boilers accomplish the same task as a traditional boiler, but in a more energy-efficient way. Just like a traditional boiler, system boilers have a single cylinder that stores hot water. The main difference is in how the boiler unit is constructed. Unlike traditional standalone units, the hot water and heating components are built right into the system boiler unit. Because system boilers do not require a separate tank, they are simpler and easier to install than traditional boilers. System boilers are also compatible with solar heating systems, making them more energy efficient than other options.
A combination boiler combines a central heating boiler with a high-efficiency water heater. This type of system doesn’t use a cylinder to store the water because the combination boiler heats the water directly from the main line. Costs for combination boilers tend to be lower than traditional boilers because they are smaller, more efficient and less complicated. Another advantage is that you don’t need to worry about water pressure because the water is heated directly from the main line. Since there’s no storage tank involved, you won’t need to wait around for the hot water as it will heat on-demand.
