These are the best residential boilers available in Canada, according to Afterglow.
A lot of things make up a truly good boiler – efficiency, durability, longevity, controls – but in the end this is the device that has to keep you warm during the long cold winter months.
These boilers are mid to high-range in price. But buyer-beware, cheaper boilers not featured on this list can burn brightly at 95% efficiency, but they won’t burn long. Too many times have we seen low-end boiler suffer serious break-downs within just a few years of service.
Top honours goes to the Canadian-made IBC for its durable stainless steel heat exchanger, powerful control, and price.
Provided below are the top five boilers available today:
