High-Value Rewards of High-Efficiency Heating Systems
February 15, 2018
As winter slowly comes to an end, Pennsylvania homeowners are looking forward to signs of spring. Don’t forget about your heating system while you start planning for warmer weather! Now could be the perfect time to reinvest in new oil or propane heating equipment.
What Makes a System High Efficiency?
Each furnace or boiler’s efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). This rating represents how much heat the oil or gas system gives off, taking into consideration the energy consumed by the system’s operation. High-efficiency heating systems most commonly share these features:
- 90% to 98.5% AFUE
- ENERGY STAR® rating
- Sealed combustion
Why Should I Upgrade?
Your boiler or furnace has gotten your family through another Northeast winter. Thanks to affordable home heating oil and propane delivery, you’ve earned savings even during the coldest months. Consider putting it toward a new high-efficiency system to take advantage of these benefits:
- Lower heating bills
If your heating system is 15 years or older, new equipment can save up to 30-40% on energy costs.
- Improved safety
Rest easy knowing your new equipment is operating as safely and efficiently as possible.
- Reduced risk of service calls
Over time all equipment will start to decline. Investing in a new system will lower the frequency of necessary service visits from your local HVAC technician.
- Fewer emissions
New high-efficiency models are designed to use less energy, which is better for your wallet and the environment.
Better home comfort
All of these factors come together to provide your family with the best possible comfort.
