The Types of Boilers We Service
As a premiere HVAC company, we service all types of boiler systems, including those powered by:
Residential Boiler Repair
Boilers fail for a variety of reasons; they may leak, break down, lose pressure, make noise, or lose connection with your home’s thermostat. While these problems may feel catastrophic, most can be remedied through repair or replacement of individual components.
Our home boiler repair services begin with a thorough inspection. During the inspection, our HVAC experts will determine the cause of the problems and lay out your options for repair.
Sure signs your boiler needs repair include:
- The unit is overheating.
- The unit is making strange noises (clunking, banging, hissing).
- There are strange smells coming from the unit (for gas boilers, gas leaks require emergency evacuation and service).
- The unit won’t turn on or off.
- There is a lack of hot water in your home.
Once the issue has been identified, you can expect our HVAC service professionals to perform various repairs, such as:
- Unclogging pipes.
- Adjusting fittings to fix leaks.
- Restoring pressure or water levels.
- Flushing or cleaning the unit and various parts.
- Relighting the pilot light.
- Replacing broken parts.
- Securing or restoring electrical connections.
To best maintain the efficiency of your boiler and avoid these costly or urgent repairs, we recommend scheduling annual maintenance services. Depending on your system type and home heating needs, our maintenance services may differ. We’ll inform you of these variations after inspecting your unit.
Residential Boiler Replacement
We recommend boiler replacement when your unit is beyond repair, or when your existing unit is no longer meeting your home heating needs. In this case, we’ll recommend more energy-efficient options to best fit your home.
Boiler replacement is often recommended when:
- Repairs are more frequent or costly.
- The unit is 15+ years old.
- Connected systems are taking longer to heat.
- Energy bills have significantly increased.
- The heat exchanger is failing or broken.
During our replacement process, we’ll carefully remove your existing unit and install a replacement. If you decide to upgrade your system—such as changing from steam to hot water or condensing system, or changing fuel type (electric, oil, natural gas, propane, etc.)—this process is slightly more time-consuming, and likely more expensive.
Regardless of your replacement decision, our team will be upfront about costs, labor processes, and the expected timeline for installation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Boiler Systems
How much does it cost to replace a boiler?
The cost of boiler replacement depends on the fuel type, efficiency, size, and replacement labor. The average price range for replacement is between $3,000 to $8,000. You can expect to spend less for simple same-fuel type replacement, and more for higher efficiency models or changes in fuel type due to increased labor and additional installments.
How much more efficient is a new boiler?
AFUE, or “annual fuel utilization efficiency,” is one measure of heating efficiency. It measures how much dedicated fuel is turned into heat; a higher number equals more efficiency. Traditional boilers have a low AFUE of 56% to 70%. Modern, high-efficiency boilers have an excellent AFUE of 90% or higher.
Why is my boiler leaking water?
Cracks, decaying seals, loose joints, and pressure changes may cause your boiler to leak water. If you discover that your unit is leaking, contact a professional for an assessment to determine what type of residential boiler service is needed.
Why is my boiler not heating up?
There’s likely a problem with boiler ignition or with another component connected to the boiler. The problem may originate at the unit, the thermostat, or the circuit board. Your local Aire Serv service professional can quickly diagnose the problem.
