Boilers & Furnaces in Richmond, BC

Heating Your Home & Office Efficiently


Most heating systems using radiant heat are fueled by a boiler. For efficient operation of many home heating systems, boilers are an excellent choice. However, home furnaces are usually less expensive and provide cooling as well. At Tap-Roots, we are your furnace and boiler specialists and will handle all of your installation and repair needs. We offer furnace service and expert maintenance to any furnace or boiler.

<h2>Boiler Installation and Repairs</h2>

A boiler produces hot water or steam and distributes it through pipes to heat radiating devices in a room. Although boilers are the most efficient form of central heating, they are also the most expensive. Regular maintenance on your boiler is important every year to ensure you have heating for the entirety of the North Vancouver winters without costly repairs.

Boilers can be:

  • Gas
  • Oil
  • Propane
  • Solid fuel-burning

Boiler Repair

The experts at TapRoots specialize in residential and commercial boiler services and guarantee all labor and products we provide. We are happy to provide free estimates and help you with maintenance tips to increase the longevity of your boiler. If you do have an issue with your boiler, however, we can handle those too.

Troubleshooting a boiler producing no heat:

  • The boiler may not have power.
  • The thermostat may have malfunctioned.
  • The water level may be low.
  • The pilot light may have gone out.

Furnace Installation

Furnaces are a major appliance often propelled by gas, which produces air, steam, or hot water to use for heating purposes. We provide top quality brand name furnaces when we complete a new installation or replacement service for you.

Furnaces can be:

  • Natural gas (most common)
  • Liquefied petroleum gas
  • Fuel oil
  • Coal
  • Wood
  • Electrical resistance heating

Furnace Repair

If your furnace isn’t working like it used to or isn’t working at all, it may be time to get in touch with the furnace repair experts at TapRoots. But first, there are some troubleshooting tips listed below if your furnace isn’t producing heat.

If your furnace is not producing heat, it could be the following:

  • The pilot light may have gone out.
  • There may be a hot surface ignition or intermittent pilot electronic ignition problem.
  • The thermostat may be set too low (so is not calling for heat).
  • The thermostat may not be functioning.
  • The furnace may have blown a fuse.
  • The control valve may be closed (for natural gas or propane furnaces).

We’re available around the clock to provide you with all of your boiler or furnace service needs. We even provide 24-hour emergency services. Contact TapRoots today at 604-222-1282.

We had our hot water heater replaced this week and of course it costs a little more than we would like, but that’s always the case. The tech was friendly and on-time and cleaned up his mess. They even disposed of our old one for us. We will definitely be calling you again.
