The average life of a boiler is 30 to 40 years, occasionally even longer. Sometimes it’s best to replace an aging boiler. But if the boiler is in pretty good shape, it makes sense to have us repair it. Here are some other things to consider as you decide…
The Size and Type of Your Boiler
The larger the boiler, the more fuel it burns. A boiler will burn even more fuel if it isn’t operating at maximum efficiency, increasing your fuel costs and costing you money. Repairs can often bring your boiler back to its original level of efficiency, so repairing your boiler might be the way to go, depending on its size.
Keep the Boiler, Replace the Burner
We evaluate your boiler and burner separately because each plays its own role in system efficiency. Sometimes it makes more sense to keep the boiler and replace the burner to increase efficiency. In many cases, energy-saving programs can reduce boiler demands and an existing boiler can be fired with a new de-rated fuel burner, reducing burner cycling and increasing your energy savings.
We at American Combustion Service, Inc. use our “Energy Efficiency Analysis” questionnaire to help you figure out what’s best for you. This valuable tool helps us determine your annual fuel savings and provides you with an ROI (return on investment) if you choose to have us replace your burner. You’ll make smart decisions, and that’s good for your system and your wallet.
Spring is the perfect time to be thinking about the money you can save with high-efficiency equipment. Call us. We’re here to help.
