Price Factors:

Type of repair needed- The cost of your boiler repair will depend greatly on what part of your boiler needs to be repaired/replaced. For example, replacing your thermostat is a lot less expensive than replacing your circulator pump or the gas valve. After taking a look at your boiler, a tech will be able to tell you exactly what part is malfunctioning and the cost to repair or replace it.

Repair vs. replace-Depending on the part that needs to be repaired (and the severity of the damage), it may be in your best interest to replace your entire system altogether. This will obviously increase the cost of your boiler service, but may save you money in the long run.

Whether or not your boiler is under warranty- When your boiler was installed, it likely came with two warranties: a parts warranty and a labor warranty. The parts warranty is usually covered by the boiler manufacturer and covers defective parts for a certain amount of time (usually 1-5 years). A labor warranty is usually covered by the company or contractor who installed your boiler and covers any issues dependent on how the boiler was installed. If either (or both) of those warranties are still valid, it could end up saving you quite a bit on your boiler repair.

Whether your boiler has been maintained- The more often you have your boiler maintained, the less likely you'll face expensive repairs. So, if you've had your boiler maintained annually since its installation, the cost of your repair will likely be less expensive than if you've had your boiler for years and never had a technician perform a tune up on the system.

Wanna fix your boiler yourself? Try these DIY boiler repair tips:

  1. Ensure your thermostat is in the "heat" position.
  2. Check the boiler's circuit breaker and see if it has switched to "OFF". If so, switch that sucker back to "ON". Note: If your breaker trips again, call a professional, as there is likely a larger issue.
  3. Try restarting the boiler by pressing the reset button. Since reset buttons vary between different boiler models, you may need to refer to your unit's instruction manual to learn how to reset it.

We never felt pressured to be sold on anything...
"Calfo Mechanical has provided us with excellent service every time we needed them. Jason our technician has come out to our house several times because our old boiler parts kept breaking down on us. Jason had worked with us giving us options, we never felt pressured to be sold on anything ever. We had our new boiler put in and had other workers Dylan and Jake come to help with our system. All the guys have been great, very friendly, respectful of our home, they always cleaned up any area of work"
