The energy saving possibilities of a new boiler
A boiler will provide you an immediate reduction on your bills if you’ve switched from a gas or electric furnace. Since boilers do not use air ducts to send heat around your house, but instead pipes leading to radiators and/or baseboard heaters, they lose less heat during their heating cycle.
Boilers score much higher AFUE ratings than the majority of furnaces. Look for a boiler with the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR label. A boiler that qualifies for the ENERGY STAR label must have at least an AFUE of 85%, which is 6% more efficient than models that meet the federal minimum standard for federal efficiency, and 7% more efficient than the ENERGY STAR requirements for a gas furnace. You can also choose to invest in a high efficiency boiler that has improved heat exchangers that rapidly move the heat from the gas jets to the water in the tank. Talk to boiler installation technicians to find out which systems will work best for you.
To receive the maximum savings from your new boiler, it must be properly sized for your home: this also requires the work of professionals. Make sure you start out with an installation that will let your boiler deliver you the most energy-saving performance possible.
Although boilers have simple maintenance, that doesn’t mean you can slack off on scheduling it. Make sure you arrange an annual visit from a technician who can check to see that all the components of your system work well, and no repair need will impair its performance. Only a boiler in the best working shape will return the savings you expect from its AFUE rating.
