New England winters are undoubtedly beautiful, but they can also be challenging to endure due to frequent cold snaps, heavy snowfalls and nor’easters. Therefore, it’s essential to ensure that your home’s heating system, either oil- or propane-fired boiler, can handle the harsh winter weather.
Tower Energy’s HVAC technicians in Central Connecticut have been providing dependable and skilled services for almost 20 years. They ensure the safety and comfort of local residents and can assist in selecting and promptly installing the best boiler for your home.
A boiler system heats your home by circulating hot water or steam through sealed pathways like radiators or baseboards. The heat produced by a boiler is more moist compared to the heat from a forced-air heating system.
This has some advantages, including:
Our technicians will suggest a boiler that fits your needs and budget based on your existing system. They take into account factors such as your family size, any home additions you’ve made, and any future plans for expanding your home or your family.
Do you know the installation year of your current boiler? If it was installed more than 15 years ago, it may not be running smoothly or efficiently. Boilers often lose efficiency over time, and it’s possible that it may be operating at less than 60% efficiency.
To provide perspective, it means that you are only receiving 60 cents worth of heating for every dollar of fuel used in your old boiler.
In contrast, the efficiency of oil- and gas-fired boilers can reach 95% or even higher!
Improving your home heating efficiency by 35% will lead to a significant reduction in your fuel usage and immediate cost savings. Additionally, the advanced boilers have precise controls that adjust to milder weather, resulting in fewer temperature swings and lower energy consumption.
Sometimes customers ask us to replace their furnace with a boiler (or vice versa). This is often extremely expensive, because it requires changing a home’s entire heating system.
At Tower Energy, we provide continuous services even after the installation of your boiler. Our certified and skilled technicians are always available for repairs and maintenance, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
To keep your boiler working efficiently for years, we recommend getting annual maintenance. Our affordable service plans offer complimentary tune-ups and discounts on repairs to ensure that your system runs smoothly.
