Boilers are designed to give you efficient heating over the long haul, but no system lasts forever.
Eventually, your boiler will need to be replaced, and when that happens, our boiler technicians have the skills and equipment needed to get the job done. We’ll help you assess your home’s heating needs and find the right hot water boiler to meet those needs.
Boiler replacement services
With over 50 years of experience in the HVAC industry, we understand the importance of proper boiler replacement services. Here’s a rundown of how our boiler technicians proceed with a new boiler installation:
- Heat loss calculation. We’ll start the boiler installation with a heat loss calculation, so-called because it depends on the amount of heat your home loses through its roof, windows, doors, and walls. We may recommend adding extra insulation to reduce heat loss and thus lower your home’s heating load.
- Boiler sizing. With that information in hand, we’ll be able to precisely size your new boiler to match your home’s heating needs.
- Boiler installation. Once you’ve chosen a boiler that’s properly sized to fit your home and budget, our boiler technicians will work efficiently to get it up and running in your home.
- Testing. During the boiler installation, we’ll take our time and test everything to make sure you’ll have effective heating for many winters to come.
Our boiler technicians can service many types of boilers. We specialize in boilers that are demonstrated to be highly energy and cost-efficient. We believe in getting the job done right the first time, and we stand behind our work with unbeatable guarantees as well as regular discounts.

Is it really time for you to change? Do you really need a new boiler? There are many things to consider before thinking about replacing a boiler. One of them is the age of your boiler.
Like all machines, boilers have a usage lifespan. If you have an older home with an older boiler, it may be time to push for a boiler replacement just because of normal wear and tear. Certain circumstances, however, can make it necessary to replace your boiler prematurely, when boiler repairs are not possible for example.
The importance of trustworthy boiler technicians
At Hurley & David, we never push for heating system replacement.
Sometimes, an ordinary boiler repair or replacement of a single worn part can restore normal boiler functionality. Sometimes, though, the issue is severe enough that replacing a boiler is more economical than trying to fix it. For example, we occasionally discover wear-related damage deep inside the hot water boiler, causing a water leak. Internal damage is a costly fix, and especially if the system is already well into its usage lifespan, it may be more worthwhile to just start fresh with a brand-new heating system and opt for a boiler replacement.
Some homeowners find that it’s financially more advantageous to replace a heater even though it isn’t having a particular maintenance issue and isn’t quite at the end of its lifespan. That’s because modern hot water boilers are substantially more efficient than systems made even five or ten years ago.
If you can afford the up-front cost of a boiler replacement, you may be able to recoup that cost in just a few years of reduced heating bills, especially if you’re upgrading from an oil boiler to natural gas boiler. We’ll be happy to do a payback analysis to help you understand the short and long-term implications of a boiler or hot water heater replacement. We also offer financing options to help you out with your new boiler installation costs.
Benefits of a Boiler Upgrade
If you’re building a new home and need a new heating system to match, a boiler can be a great way to keep that home warm. For existing homes, though, getting a new hot water boiler is a matter of up-front cost versus long-term savings. New boilers are quite a bit more efficient than older systems, and if yours is more than a decade old, a boiler replacement may be able to pay for itself in just a few winters. This is especially true if your boiler is starting to have maintenance issues, especially internal damage: it’s often easier to start fresh with a new boiler than to try and squeeze a few more winters out of your existing system if significant boiler repairs are called for.
Our boiler technicians will help you make the right heating decision for your home by doing what’s called a payback analysis, which compares the up-front cost of boiler installation to the amount of money you’ll save per month on reduced fuel usage.

Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
