Furnace installation and repairMost of us think about boilers only when something goes wrong. As long as we're warm, we're happy. We'll get the routine boiler maintenance done, but we don't want to spend money on anything like an "expensive" new boiler, especially in tough economic times.

But think about the difference between "spending" and "investing." Replacing an old, inefficient boiler with a modern, energy efficient and state-of-the-art heating system is an investment that offers excellent returns. With the cold winters we experience in Vermont, a new boiler can be critical to our daily lives. What's more ... the returns on this investment get better as energy prices rise.

Here's an example. Vermont homeowner Jeremy heats his home with a boiler that is 20 years-old and only 75% efficient. He burns 1,100 gallons of oil each year, and has been provided with an estimate of $6,500 to install a new 86% efficient boiler with a programmable thermostat. Jeremy remains anxious about the price, even after securing a low-interest loan, like the Heat Saver. The reality is that if oil is at $2.50/gallon, the true cost is just $73/month. If the price of oil hits $3.50 per gallon, the monthly real monthly cost drops to $56 per month because the new boiler will use 200 gallons less oil each year. Do the math or let us do it for you!

  • New Boiler More Efficient

    For years our old boiler was noisy and it was turning off and on far too often. I think it might have been held together by duct tape, at least it looked that way.
