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 high efficiency boiler heating systems are second to none.

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 Made In BC Canada

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 boilers: high-performance that’s built to last

Although we can install all major makes and models of boilers, our boiler brand of choice IS IBC.

They rate highly for durability, energy-efficiency, and performance. Simply put: if the product isn’t reliable, we won’t sell it.

IBC condensing boilers have incredible reviews and are priced at a cost that makes sense for an economical heating solution.

If you're thinking about using Acorn Services just do it. I recommend them to family and friends without hesitation. I cannot overstate how professional, knowledgeable, and friendly everyone is and how they work together seamlessly as a team. In Jan 2021, Acorn Services rescued me and replaced several cracked and leaking pipes. How they operated convinced me to switch my maintenance services exclusively to them. Recently our 50 year old boiler had finally reached its endpoint. Shane provided me with options to replace the boiler and hot water tank (also at end of life) with a combined system, the pro's and con's of each vendor, assured me that everything was included in the quote (and it was), advised me of the rebates, coordinated the schedule with me, and let me know what I could expect. Austin led the install with help from Max and they went above and beyond. Our mechanical room was pretty funky and it had an ancient snow melt machine and old shelving that they removed at no extra cost. What a transformation over two days to see all the old stuff out and this clean, modern system mounted on the wall, and tucked in the corner. The room looks amazing - you can tell that they created a design for the room and installed the system to give us the most free space possible. There was an issue with a component of the vendor hardware, which the guys worked late into a Friday evening to resolve, but it required a new part. Jamie arrived the following morning and replaced the part, tuned the system, and got it up and running in less than an hour. Overall a great group of people and we're extremely satisfied.

Had a problem with our boiler. Acorn responded quickly. Fixed the problem. The technician was friendly and knowledgeable. I have used Acorn previously for the install which was done well and priced better than other quotes received

This is not an easy review to write. The office staff have been excellent, they communicate effectively in a timely fashion and are very knowledgeable despite not being trained technicians.My concern lies with the service Acorn provided.My furnace stopped working and I called Acorn on Friday, I explained the situation and also said that I had an alternate source of heat in the house so it wasn’t an urgent issue.I was called on Tuesday with the news that a technician was available and he correctly diagnosed a faulty gas valve. The valve was replaced and I was billed $149 for the call out (which I knew about) and $508 for the valve (which seems a little steep).From that day on we noticed a smell that we thought was gas but did not smell like rotten eggs as BC Hydro describe so we were confused what it might be.My wife eventually convinced me to call Acorn and to their credit a technician was dispatched that day.He confirmed that the smell was indeed gas and there were two leaks, one from a loose out pressure tap on the valve and one due to the flare nut being cross threaded when the valve was installed.He fixed both leaks under warranty.I called Acorn to express my concern about the cross threaded flare nut as a potential source of future leaks. The office staff said they were pretty sure it would be fine but that I should check for leaks on a regular basis. I was not satisfied with this answer. The office said that the Service Manager would call me to discuss my concerns. That was one week ago. No call.I would like Acorn to replace the cross threaded gas valve with a new one so my family and I can feel confident that it isn’t likely to develop a leak sometime in the future.I also would like to reiterate that gas does not smell like rotten eggs, so if you suspect something may be gas - assume it is and call in an HVAC tech. I didn’t, and put my family at risk for nearly a week while I tried to figure out what the smell was.I sent this review to Acorn and got a call from the service manager who apologized and told me that the service tech who said the fitting had been cross threaded said that he didn’t mean it was cross threaded and shouldn’t have written that. I asked for a picture of the threads which the tech had taken at the time and they looked okay.I am not completely comfortable with the state of our furnace and will be closely monitoring it for leaks. I asked that they schedule a follow up check in about six months or whenever their quiet time is to be sure we haven’t developed a slow leak. I also suggested they do a comp service while they were here to compensate us for the hassle and risk they caused. No reply.In all conscience I can’t recommend Acorn.After posting this review I received a call from one of the owners. She had no issues with any of my comments and apologized, noting that the service people are run off their feet at the moment but that was no excuse for not responding to my last communication. She offered to send someone round to confirm their were no leaks and also agreed that in the circumstances my request for a follow up check and complimentary tune up during the Spring were completely reasonable. She immediately followed that up with an email confirmation. She is proud of the people they employ and wanted to make sure that I was a satisfied customer. I had initially given them 3 stars, it is a shame it took a dodgy review to get good service. I am not sure yet how I feel about using them again, but as far as this transaction is concerned I am satisfied with the final outcome.Ian Denison

I made an appointment for a technician to come and look at my heat pumps because I was having trouble with them. The technician showed up and asked what the problems I was having with my system, I explained the problems and he told me what he thought he should do to find the problems. He told what he thought it could be and gave me options on how he wanted to proceed, also let me know the probable costs and came to an agreement. Thank god he did a thorough investigation before diving into what I thought was wrong because he figured out the problem and cost me half of what I thought the problem was. I would use Acorn again and if all their technicians are as good as the one I had there a very lucky company.John Newman
