Quality made in Canada high efficiency boilers. 

     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.

Quietside hydronic boiler replacements.

Some Quietside series boilers have been recalled due to overheating issues which may result in fire dangers. Read about the recall notice HERE.

Many of these Quietside hydronic boilers were installed in the Calgary area since about 2007. Problems were intermittent and not all models suffered from the same issues. Most had minor service issues while many others began to leak well before the expected end of their service life. They were found to be difficult for service and repair access due mostly to the compact and cluttered design.

Service and support availability for these particular models have dwindled to the point where unless salvaging other Quietside boilers, parts are increasingly difficult to source.
