If your equipment is more than 25 years old and breakdowns have become frequent, or your latest repair required replacing a major part, it’s a good sign that your system is hitting the end of its life span. And today’s oil boilers and furnaces are much more efficient, using about 30% less fuel each year. There have also been many terrific advances in fuel storage tanks. Read more about oil tanks.
On average, the energy-efficiency level for new oilheating systems is in the mid-80% range, but to make sure your system performs to its rated efficiency level, it’s critical that your heating system is installed properly.
Installation experts are trained to make sure that your system is sized properly for the needs of your home. There are tests that help them figure out how much heat your home loses in the winter. After determining how much power your home’s heating system needs, they can then expertly install your new boiler or furnace to guarantee you years of comfort and energy savings.
If you’re ready to explore new heating options for your home, your local oilheat company will be happy to help.
Once your oilheat company has your new boiler or furnace installed, you will have virtually eliminated the need for the expensive repairs and the escalating maintenance costs associated with an aging system. Just think, no more strange noises in the night and no more suddenly losing your heat because another worn-out part gave up the ghost. You will also be reducing your risk of having to deal with frozen pipes, and the ensuing water damage, caused by your old furnace or boiler conking out while you were away for the weekend.
When you combine a new oilheating system with new, clean-burning Bioheat, you’ll have a double win.
Bioheat is not only kind to the environment, it’s kind to your heating system, too. It’s extremely clean burning and boasts the highest BTU content of any alternative fuel. If everyone using heating oil used just a B5 blend (5% biodiesel/95% heating oil), 400 million gallons of regular heating oil could be conserved. This would be a big step toward conserving oil and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.*
