Is Replacing Your Boiler a Messy Job?

You’ve had your boiler for a while, you’ve realized that it might be time for you to replace it, and now you’re asking yourself… what am I in for? We’re here to help you know everything you need to know about replacing your boiler system. One of the most common questions that we get concerning boiler replacement is about what the job is going to be like. 

If you’re considering a new boiler installation in Colorado Springs, CO, then we’re here to assure you that it doesn’t have to be a messy job. We know there are common questions surrounding your boiler replacement and we’re here to answer all the top ones today.

What Happens During a Boiler Installation?

During a boiler installation, your technician will go into your home, remove your current boiler, clean out the area it inhabits, and then install your current boiler. This includes attaching it to whatever power source you choose. 

Are you wondering about tips? We suggest:

  • Cleaning up your home
  • Removing anything you don’t want to be dirtied during the appointment (treat this like you’re about to throw a party)
  • Covering your carpet

You can leave the rest to us! We make everything as easy as possible and we take the stress off of you. We know the reputation that replacement has, but we strive to make things different. 

How Long Does It Take to Replace a Boiler?

If your installation is straightforward, then it should only take about a day to install a new boiler in our home. If you’re getting a replacement done and you need a current heating system hauled away or any additional work on your radiator or pipes, it could take an additional one to two days. 

What Happens to My Old Boiler?

Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye. We often get homeowners asking what happens to their old boiler when we take it away. The answer depends on the technician you’re working with. If they have the appropriate waste carrier license, they’ll carry out your boiler and dispose of it accordingly. 

Can I DIY a Boiler Installation?

No. This is something we discourage homeowners from doing in any instance. We’re not trying to insult your capability here. It might be something that you can get done. The problem arises when you have to call a professional to solve a recurring problem that you thought you were able to fix on your own. 

Professional installation gives you the reassurance you need. You can walk away from the job knowing that everything is fully squared away. You won’t have to double back on your boiler work when it comes to our professionals.

We know that one concern that people have regarding a boiler might be the price of replacement. This is something that we make easy and affordable with our professionals. If you have questions, you can talk to one of our professionals about any of your concerns today. We’re friendly and knowledgeable.
