What To Look For In A New Boiler
While boiler systems can be simple or elaborate, boilers today are smaller in size for the purposes of efficiency.
Boilers and Energy Efficiency
Boilers today can be retrofitted to be more energy efficient. However, new boilers have special features that can also be energy efficient.
- Electronic Ignition – This eliminates the need to have the pilot light burning continuously.
- Condensing Combustion Technology – This helps give you more heat for the same amount of fuel used.
- Sealed Combustion – This reduces drafts.
Cost Of A New Boiler
The cost of a new boiler can range between $4,000 and $20,000. Why such a large range, you ask? There are plenty of variables that get figured into the cost. For example, the square footage of your house matters. How efficient of a boiler you’re looking for matters.
