IBC BOILERS – SERVICE, REPAIR AND INSTALLATION

Providing superior comfort, reliability and fuel savings to our customers.

IBC wall-mounted condensing boilers convert Natural Gas or Propane into heat with unprecedented efficiency, helping to stretch our precious supply of fossil fuels well into the future.

IBC has searched the world to find the best components made. Gas valves, combustion fans, controls – all of the components necessary to create a chain that will convert a fuel gas into reliable, efficient and comfortable heat for your home. Our philosophy is that there will be “no weak links” in the chain, and we continue to try and improve the quality of everything we use in our products.

Award Winning Condensing Boilers

IBC Technologies is an award winner for the innovative design of its wall-mounted condensing boilers. What sets these boilers apart from the others?

MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION

From its 439 or 316 Ti, high grade stainless steel heat exchanger/pressure vessel to its FeCrAlloy™ mesh burner, IBC has researched and sourced the best materials available to ensure that each boiler will operate as efficiently as possible while providing durability over the long term.

TOP QUALITY COMPONENTS

IBC has searched the world to find the best components made. Gas valves, combustion fans, controls – all of the components necessary to create a chain that will convert a fuel gas into reliable, efficient and comfortable heat for your home. Our philosophy is that there will be “no weak links” in the chain, and we continue to try and improve the quality of everything we use in our products.

IDEAL COMBUSTION

The first link in the chain is to convert your fuel into heat in the most efficient way possible. Using precise fuel-air mixing and advanced burners and combustion control, we squeeze every penny out of your energy dollar.

OPTIMUM HEAT RECOVERY

Link two – convert that heat into hot water (and not send it up the chimney as many conventional boilers do) – a key to the success of our boiler. IBC boilers scrub as much heat as possible from the combustion process – we get it all.

DEEP MODULATION

Link three – don’t use more fuel than you have to. We can precisely match our burn rate to the heat required by your system – saves fuel, saves wear and tear.

EFFICIENT HEAT RECOVER

Link four – Our boiler runs cool when it can and only ramps up to higher temperatures when specific loads require it (usually a small percentage of the heating season). Our creative control methods ensure that heat is distributed only to those loads that need it at the time – more energy savings.

BUT THERE IS MORE!

But there’s more! Advanced diagnostic features, intuitive and easy control set-up as well as unique system operation logging help you set up the boiler for optimum efficiency, and then maintain it, in whatever system it is connected to. Ease of installation helps ensure that your heating system operates properly from day one.
Our generous venting allowances, compact size and simple piping options make for good-looking, install anywhere options that will add to your pride of ownership in one of the most energy-smart heating systems available today.


Thinking about a new boiler?

If your boiler isn’t running as well as it used to, it may be time to replace it. Although a new boiler can be an expensive investment up front, it will save you money on your utility bill down the road, and make your home more comfortable. Here are some factors to consider:

Energy efficiency: If you have an older boiler, it may be running at 65% efficiency or less, which means that only 65% of the heat it produces is being transferred to the water that heats your home – that’s a significant amount of money to lose up the chimney! With a new boiler operating at 80% to 98.5% efficiency, you’ll see immediate savings on your energy bill.

Modulation: most new, high-efficiency boilers can match their heat output to your home’s needs by running at a consistent, low level. Older boilers only run at full capacity, so even if it’s a mild BC day, or you’re only heating one area of your home, the system will constantly turn off and on to provide surges of heat. With a new boiler, you get constant, even heat throughout your home, quieter operation, and energy savings.

Steel vs. corrosion-resistant heat exchangers: If your old boiler has a steel heat exchanger, it will eventually be rusted away by the water in the system. New, stainless steel heat exchangers last much longer.

Once you’ve chosen a new boiler, we can help you decide on any additional features, such as an indirect water heater that provides abundant hot water at a low operating cost, or outdoor reset controls that help you save energy and money.

IBC and Burnham boilers: high-performance that’s built to last

Although we can install all major makes and models of boilers, our boiler brands of choice are IBC and Burnham – brands
that rate highly for durability, energy-efficiency, and performance. Simply put: if the product isn’t reliable, we won’t sell it.

Very impressed with Acorn. The appointment was easy to book and within an acceptable time frame. Jordan came out to assess our unique heat pump and heat exchange system. He really went above and beyond to explain the system, what we needed to do to keep it going well, and then giving the heat pump and filters a general service. Very much appreciated his time and knowledge...and the price was very reasonable. Highly recommend Acorn, and glad we can recommend local!

Our furnace quit working on a Sunday and Acorn was able to have someone look at it that day and the Part we needed replaced was ordered first thing Monday and the work was done by Wednesday. While we waited they supplied heaters. Good quality, very friendly & accommodating. I also checked the price of the part to do it myself and it wasn’t worth it. Their price was extremely reasonable and competitive. Regards,Neil from Ladner.

I totally recommend Acorn to help with anything needed with heating and plumbing. Efficient, super helpful and knowledgeable technicians on the two occasions that I have had them here over the past few years.Today I was delighted to be able to ask the advice of Dennis (the technician who was here to do a check over of my furnace) about a problem that had been bugging me for years with the noisy fan of my fireplace. I was thrilled that he was able to quickly troubleshoot the issue and is now arranging with his Acorn colleague to see about ordering a replacement part. I also was able to learn more about my furnace and after seeing the filter that it would be advisable to have the ducts cleaned (I have 3 big dogs). I was able to get a referral to reliable company with a 10% discount—again, supportive, helpful and efficient.The technician also checked my water tank and offered very helpful advice (and will ask his Acorn colleagues to check (via the tank’s serial numbers) as to what it’s longevity is before it should be replaced. I am a big fan of being proactive to avoid “disasters” such as a leaking tank so I am feeling relieved about the water tank (which has been on my mind for a while).What I really appreciate is the support and assistance through the technician’s helpful attitude, knowledge, efficiency plus follow through which for me translates to peace of mind as a homeowner.Having a quality company that I can trust and depend on translates to peace of mind. I totally recommend Acorn Plumbing and Heating.

Jordon was here to service my furnace & fireplace today. Service was wonderful as usual. He took the time to explain options that are available as it is almost time to replace my hot water heater. He is very knowledgeable and not at all pushy, which I really appreciate.

Acorn installed new pans and a drain system for our Daikin heat compressor. We were really happy with how smoothly the process went from start to finish including the high quality of the installation. The technicians also helped us gain a better understanding of how our heating and cooling systems work. Thank you for the excellent service!

I set up a appointment for installing a "reducing valve" in my radiant heating furnace as recommended by a the technician which was costing me a fair bit. However when the technician TAYLOR showed up, he explained that he did fiuther research on my system and the valve was really not require. He explained to me in detail on the piping set up etc, anyway the long and short of it is that Taylor did not do te cvalve install and saved me a lot of money, and instead did the regular service of the system which was also agreed upon previously. So I trust their integrity with the service and will use them again.

I am grateful to Chad for his assistance with my hot water heater. Five minutes before the scheduled service visit, he called me to say he would be 10 minutes late--how unexpected (but appreciated!) to have such attentiveness to appointment time. He arrived shortly thereafter and had the problem resolved in a flash. I was unaware that Acorn Heating & Gas was the company my contractor used during a kitchen reno a few years ago. However, Chad recognized my home and didn't charge me for today's visit as a courtesy to an "existing customer". I can't say that I have EVER had a free service call in the past.I am pleased to be able to live in South Delta and to support our local business community. I will definitely call on Acorn for any future heating or plumbing work and will be sure to recommend your company to my friends and neighbours.

Acorn Heating and Gas has installed my furnace, fireplace and tankless hot water heater. I have had them back to service all my equipment on a regular basis. Each time, Chad or Scott has been on time, courteous and taken care of everything I needed. I have never felt overcharged. Last year, I had a gas line installed for my barbecue which I love. I am thinking of doing a bathroom reno and I know I will call them back.
