Boiler Installation You Can Count On
Boilers are a common heating system in older homes and buildings throughout Maryland and the Northeast. Boilers burn fuel oil, propane, or natural gas to heat water, which is then sent through a series of pipes to distribute heat throughout your home and maintain the desired indoor temperature.
If you have an older boiler in your home or business that needs more frequent repairs, or just isn’t energy efficient, you might consider a new boiler installation. Our team has the expertise to help you select the right boiler for your needs and we offer expert installation.
Signs You Need to Consider Boiler Replacement
There are several signs that it may be time to consider boiler replacement, including:
- Your boiler is more than 15 years old.
- The boiler needs more and more repairs.
- The boiler is losing pressure.
- Your boiler is making loud noises.
- Your heating bills are going up dramatically without a drop in temperature or increase in fuel costs.
If one or more of these sounds familiar, start checking out your options for a new boiler installation.
Today’s boilers are much more energy efficient than the boilers of the past. The efficiency of boilers and furnaces is determined by figuring out the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The AFUE rating is the ratio of the annual heat output of the boiler compared with the total annual fuel energy consumed by it.
For example, an AFUE of 90% means that 90% of the energy in the fuel becomes heat for the home. High-efficiency boilers can have an AFUE of 90% and above. Boilers with an AFUE of 95% or higher are eligible for a tax credit of $600.
Steam Heat or Radiant Heating
Boilers are compatible with different heat distribution methods as well. Steam heat uses radiators to distribute heat, while radiant heating uses pipes that can be installed along your walls, floor, and ceiling. Boilers are also compatible with hot-water baseboards. Compared with other heating systems, it’s easier to practice zone heating with boilers.
