Hydronic heating systems originated in Europe and are becoming increasingly popular in Toronto.
Compared to conventional heating methods, they are superior in heating efficiency and much more flexible. They take into consideration your own home’s heating requirements and how that may vary from room to room.
Heat is distributed through radiators or in-floor pipes. Since there is no fan blowing air through vents in your home, the air is cleaner as well. Forced air can result in more dust and could be an issue for allergy sufferers or those with asthma.
At Leaside Plumbing we offer efficient and quality service on all brands of commercial and residential boilers including SlantFin, Laars, Weil-McLain, Viessman, Triangle Tube and more.
Your boiler should be cleaned and inspected on an annual basis. That’s not just to ensure maximum heat efficiency. Boiler maintenance is a very important step in keeping your heating system running problem free and keeping your family safe.

We’re happy to help new homeowners understand how their heating systems operate and explain what kind of maintenance may be required. You can be confident and comfortable operating your heating system after we share our expertise and years of experience.
When should you service your boiler?

If you have a hydronic heating system, it’s important to make sure the system is in good working order ahead of the cold winter months. This includes maintenance on the circulator pump as it is the most important component of the system, and essential to keeping your home warm.
Replacing a Circulator Pump
A plumbing professional should always replace a circulator pump and we can help you make the right decision. Different pumps have different flow rates which determine the maximum volume of water than can be circulated at any given head range. That’s the number of feet a pump raises or lowers water at atmospheric pressure.
Circulators can be cast iron for closed-loop systems, but open-loop systems require bronze or stainless steel pumps to prevent corrosion. Some models offer variable speed functions that vary according to the home’s heating load throughout the day.
Contact Leaside Plumbing in Toronto if you need to replace your circulator pump. We have the necessary expertise to install and maintain the most common brands.
