The Benefits of Replacing Boiler Equipment
Although they’re less common in North America than Europe, nearly 10 million people use boilers in the United States. This HVAC equipment heats water instead of air. In addition to supplying hot water for sinks, appliances, and bathtubs, it uses radiators or baseboard units to provide hydronic heating.
There are several benefits to be gained from installing a new boiler or a different type of system. Read on to learn more about the benefits of replacing boiler equipment.
By choosing to replace your existing equipment with a modern boiler, you will see a new product that has superior performance, high-end efficiency, and one which will result in a lesser cost.
1. Superior Performance
With technology always growing, the newer boiler models are constructed much better than the past models. There are fewer parts; therefore, less reason for there to be problems. Because of their durability, their lifespan will be longer.
2. High-End Efficiency
With hydronic systems, heat is distributed more evenly than with forced air technology. Random cold spots throughout the home are kept to a minimum.
Some recent models offer 95 percent or higher efficiency. Be sure to check the AFUE rating.
3. Lesser Cost
Hydronic systems consume less energy than oil-burning systems. Heating with water is also more efficient than heating with air. In all cases, choosing a new boiler will lower operating costs, which results in a lesser cost to the property owner.
4. Smaller in Size
If you have a small area, no need to worry. The new boilers can be purchased significantly smaller than in the past. A few models can even be mounted on a wall.
5. Cleaner Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air pollution is always a key factor when determining which type of heat you want for your home. Did you know furnaces can circulate more contaminants because of the ducts and vents the heated air travels through?
With a new gas boiler, the heated water will travel through a network of pipes, keeping the number of contaminants circulating through to a minimum.
Another option is to replace your boiler with entirely different equipment. This may prove desirable if you have an old, deteriorating oil tank.
New state-of-the-art furnaces have a reduced number of pipes that could freeze or leak, but you’ll need to install ducts and a separate water heater.
Heat pumps provide a highly efficient, dependable, and relatively low-maintenance solution.
Either way, new heating systems offer many additional benefits. They work reliably and need less upkeep than old units. This enhances comfort and peace of mind.
Aging oil or gas units can develop problems that cause them to produce harmful carbon monoxide. Replacement improves safety while raising the resale value of your house. Modern HVAC systems are highly appealing to potential homebuyers.
