It’s the middle of the winter and your boiler kicks the bucket – now what? Well, unless you want to spend the remainder of the season taking frozen showers and huddling around the stove for warmth, we suggest you start looking into installing a new one right away. Here’s what you need to know:
1. Decide on Oil or Natural Gas
Decide which type of boiler you’re looking to install. If you previously used oil, it may be a good opportunity to upgrade your home to natural gas. It can be up to 50% cheaper than oil in the long run!
2. Choose the Correct Capacity
If your new boiler isn’t the right size, it will end up either over or underperforming. In either case, it will cause your bills to be sky high and your heating needs to be left unmet. Not just that, but your boiler will be more likely to conk out earlier on due to inefficiency.
3. Take Efficiency Into Account
Besides capacity regulations, some boiler models have better Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings than others. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient the boiler will be.
