The climate extremes here in Canada demand efficient and reliable heating technology ensuring efficiency, a long service life and made in Canada quality. Alberta is well known for extreme cold to the north with variable weather patterns further south during heating season including at times dramatic temperature swings courtesy of our Chinook influenced weather.
Canadian manufacturers of high efficiency condensing gas boilers are producing among the best boilers in the industry and have been for years. These boilers all have years of reliable and efficient service in the field and quality after sale and technical support. Properly sized, installed using best practice methods with regular service and maintenance intervals, they will provide years of reliable heating service and have proven to be up to all the weather extremes our Canadian climate may throw our way.
And while there are many boilers on the market we prefer to choose Canadian made heating products for retrofits and new installations where possible.
One of our favorite boilers for the retrofit market and new installations, is the IBC SL high efficiency modulating boiler. With both left and right hand outlets available right out of the box they are easily configured for most common residential applications. Capable of up to four multi-load or multi-temperature demands, makes these models perfect for modern hydronic heating systems.
