Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers, and have been for decades. Chances are, so is yours. Generally speaking, these systems are durable, reliable and a critical part of a family’s home comfort, especially here in the Northeast.
The downside of durability is that many older furnaces and boilers that are still in operation have efficiencies in the range of 56% to 70%. By comparison, modern heating systems can achieve efficiencies higher than 95%, which means they convert nearly all the fuel they burn to useful heat for your home.
What does that mean to you? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, upgrading to a new high-efficiency heating system can often cut your fuel bills and your pollution output in half. For example, upgrading your furnace or boiler from 60% to 90% efficiency in an average cold-climate house could mean saving as much as a full tank of heating oil and 2.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
If your furnace or boiler is old, worn out, inefficient, or significantly oversized, the simplest solution is to replace it with a modern high-efficiency model. And if you’ve been considering a system upgrade, V-Fuel partners with the most respected leaders in modern boilers and furnaces.
