Whether you require a conventional boiler, a combi boiler, or a system boiler, our friendly professionals have nearly 40 years of expertise under their belts to ensure a seamless installation process. 

Our technicians are fully equipped to install a variety of boilers, including:

  • Electric boilers: Electric boilers are highly efficient, compact, and easy to maintain, making them an ideal choice for homes without access to natural gas lines. 
  • Natural gas boilers: These are cost-effective and highly efficient, making them popular for many homeowners. They utilize natural gas to heat water and provide consistent warmth throughout your household.
  • Steam boilers: These systems use boiling water to create steam. Steam boilers are known for providing effective heating even in extreme cold, making them an excellent choice for Ottawa homeowners.
  • Condensing boilers: Known for their energy efficiency, condensing boilers capture and reuse heat that is typically lost in traditional systems. These systems are also environmentally friendly, allowing eco-conscious homeowners to enjoy savings on monthly energy bills while reducing emissions. 
  • Combination boilers: Also known as combi boilers, these units provide both hot water and central heating in a single, compact system. Combination boilers are space-efficient and cost-effective, making them a practical choice for smaller homes.
  • Hot water boilers: These traditional systems heat water and distribute it via radiators or in-floor heating systems. These boilers are known for providing reliable and uniform heating, making them a worthwhile investment for many homeowners.
  • Oil-fired boilers: Oil-fired boilers are often used in homes where natural gas isn’t available. These boilers are known for providing powerful and reliable heating, but they require an oil storage tank and regular maintenance to ensure efficient operation.

Not sure which type of boiler is best for your needs? No problem! Our skilled technicians can evaluate your unique needs and budget to recommend the best option for your household’s heating requirements.

Our FAQS

Providing you With Answers & Solutions
  • How are homes heated in Ottawa and when should the heat be turned on?

    The majority of homes in Canada are heated by furnaces. Of these, some use oil or propane-based furnaces, but most are natural gas-based. While most homes are heated by some type of furnace, you may find other heating methods in local homes, such as baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.

    As a homeowner, it’s up to you to decide when to turn your heat on. In essence, when your home’s temperature is uncomfortably cold, that’s likely a sign to switch your heating system on. According to the World Health Organization, the ideal indoor temperature is between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius.

  • How much does HVAC cost in Ottawa?

    This question is impossible to answer as there are many different HVAC services available to local residents. For example, the cost of installing a central air conditioner isn’t the same as repairing a furnace or heat pump. The type of service – whether it be an installation, repair, replacement, or maintenance – as well as the type of unit (heat pump, furnace, air conditioner, boiler, etc.) are two factors that will determine the cost.

    Other factors that will impact how much your HVAC service costs include the size of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork (if applicable), and the extent of the problem, in the case of repairs. The best way to find out the price of an HVAC service in Ottawa, Ontario is to request a quote from Anchor Home Comfort.

  • How do I know if my HVAC system is working properly?

    If you notice any of the following signs, it might signal a problem: uneven temperatures, problems with humidity levels, a rattling or buzzing sound coming from your furnace, or an unexplained spike in your utility bills.

    If these signs sound familiar, or you want peace of mind knowing your HVAC system is working as it should, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We will send a certified technician to inspect your HVAC system. We even have a 24/7 emergency line, and there is no extra charge for emergency, weekend, holiday, or after-hours service calls.

  • How often does my HVAC system need maintenance?

    Homeowners should book a maintenance service for their HVAC system once a year.

    Maintenance services are one of the most effective preventative ways of ensuring your HVAC system is functioning optimally and preserving your system. Having your air conditioner, furnace, heat pump, or whatever unit you use annually assessed by a professional extends its lifespan, makes your system more energy efficient, and can save you money down the line.

    Anchor Home Comfort offers some of the most thorough HVAC maintenance services in the Ottawa region. During the maintenance service, your technician will do the following: inspect the thermostat and heating system and calibrate it as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the system to decrease friction, clean and replace the air filter, if necessary, test the system’s safety controls and startup cycle, and complete a written analysis of their findings.

  • How often should a furnace or air conditioner be replaced?

    Modern furnace and AC units are designed to last between 10 and 20 years. In contrast, if your home is outfitted with a new, modern AC unit, it is more likely to last between 15 and 20 years.

    Signs your furnace or AC might need to be replaced include uneven heating and cooling, a rise in utility bills without explanation, visible rust or cracks on your existing unit, humidity problems, or buzzing or rattling sounds. If any of these signs sound familiar, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort. We can answer your questions or send a technician to your home to inspect your HVAC system. Please note that we offer same-day and next-day installations of both heating and cooling systems in Ottawa.

  • How much does it cost to install central air in Ottawa?

    Many Ottawa homeowners prefer central air conditioners. Unlike their window or portable counterparts, central air conditioning tends to be more effective. With Ottawa summers only getting hotter, AC isn’t just a luxury anymore. If you’re thinking of installing central air conditioning in your Ottawa home, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost. This ultimately depends on several key factors, such as the size and layout of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork, and the size and model of air conditioning unit you buy. Beyond the initial price of installation, you should also budget for the cost of running the unit. However, if you’re replacing an older central air conditioner with a new model, then your monthly energy bills may decrease due to greater energy efficiency.

    Overall, the best way to find out the cost of installing a central A/C unit in your Ottawa home is to request a free quote from Anchor Home Comfort.
