    What factors affect the cost of a boiler install?

    • Efficiency of the unit: We love installing the latest high-efficiency boilers from Ruud because they help our customers save money on their energy bills every month. That said, the most efficient systems do cost more to purchase upfront. So, the goal of our System Engineers is to find the right system that strikes that perfect balance between budget and efficiency for every customer.
    • Fuel type: Fuel type will play an important role in your boiler installation. Natural gas is popular because it’s both affordable and eco-friendly. Natural gas prices have been declining for years, and Iowa’s natural gas prices are some of the lowest in the nation. However, if your existing boiler uses a different fuel type, and you want to switch to another fuel type, it may require additions like a natural gas line, thus increasing the cost of the installation.
    • Contractor you hire: You could have ten different HVAC contractors bid on your boiler installation, and not one of them will have the same estimate. The most common reason for this is experience. A contractor that’s been around for a while will have licensed and insured technicians, more reviews and higher quality installs. That’s incredibly important because the real cost of hiring a bad contractor will only become apparent later on when expensive repairs and fewer protections create huge headaches for homeowners.

    Boiler Installation FAQ

    Boilers deliver heat through baseboards, radiators, or in-floor radiant heating systems. On top of that, they also come in a variety of fuel types including natural gas, oil, and propane. If you are replacing an old boiler, it is important to ensure that the boiler you choose will meet your expectations and the heating requirements of your home. We can help you select an appropriate-sized boiler for your home and budget.

    Boilers tend to last for many years but will eventually need to be replaced. Replacing an old boiler for one of today’s energy-efficient models offers increased comfort and energy savings. New models offer significantly greater energy efficiency, which can reduce your bills this year and during future heating seasons.

    Boiler replacement may be required when the system:
    • Breaks down frequently
    • Warms your home insufficiently
    • Is old and at risk of a major breakdown
    • Results in higher home energy costs
