hot water boiler


Titan provides energy efficient hot water boiler installations. If your conventional hot water boiler  is malfunctioning, it’s time to consider repair or replacement. There are many parts that can break down on your boiler, including the pilot light (if it’s gas), the circuit breaker (if it’s electric), a burner or heating element, thermostat, or valves. However, if your tank is corroded, flooding, or more than ten years old, it’s time to consider replacing it. Newer hot water boilers have injected foam insulation between the tank and its shell resulting in higher heat retention, and glass liners that make the tank less prone to corrosion. A tip, check the anode rod inside the tank, it collects corrosive elements (iron, lime) and should be replaced when caked and eaten away.



One of the most energy efficient options is the “tankless” hot water boiler, which heats water “on demand,” and uses 10% – 30% less energy than a conventional tank.  Tankless water heaters typically operate on natural gas or propane, and use less energy because they don’t keep 40 – 50 gallons of heated water in a tank on standby, like conventional tanks.  Tankless hot water boilers are compact and wall mounted, with a high-powered burner, and special venting requirements.


Solar hot water systems are composed of insulated solar collectors (facing south) that funnel water through pipes to heat it up by the power of the sun. Once the water is pre-heated, it travels through pipes to the water boiler that heats the pre-heated water up to the desired temperature. The energy and cost savings occur, because it takes less energy for the boiler to heat already pre-heated water, up to the desired temperature. There are different types of solar collectors for solar thermal systems, including: flat plate metal collectors, glass encased metal tube collectors, parabolic mirror concentrated collectors and plastic collectors.
