How much can I save with a new heating system?
This is the most common question people have when they realize they need to replace their failing heating system.
When calculating your potential savings, you have to factor in the current efficiency of your current system, its age and the condition of the system as a whole. Your oilheat technician can help you with this information.
Here’s the usual yardstick for savings: You have the potential to save 20%—or sometimes more—when you replace your aging oil furnace or oil boiler.
As an example, suppose your fuel costs amounted to $2,500 last year. After you upgrade to a new high-efficiency system, you’ll reduce your heating fuel expenses by 20%. This calculates to a savings of $500 per year. This means you can see a payback on your investment in just a few years.
There’s yet another benefit that comes with new high-efficiency heating equipment: fewer repair bills. In fact, if properly maintained, your system should deliver many years of problem-free service. Check the owner’s manual or talk with your technician about a proper maintenance schedule.
Did you ever wonder: “How does oilheat work?” Whether you choose a new high-efficiency heating oil boiler or heating oil furnace as your new oilheat system, you can count on increasing your home comfort while also decreasing energy usage, and with that, your annual heating costs.
