It may be officially summer, but temperatures here in Colorado can turn on a dime. And although it may seem strange to think about your heating system in the middle of summer, it’s actually the ideal time to consider how well it’ll perform when temperatures drop unexpectedly.
If you’re feeling uncertain about the state of your home’s heating system, now’s a great time to do research on what type of system might suit your needs. Many homeowners wonder if boiler systems are still reliable and affordable options for heating your home. Our answer is yes, without a doubt. Read on to learn about the benefits.
The Benefits of a New Boiler
There are many perks to a new boiler system. While the initial cost may seem high, it’s comparable, if not more affordable, than other methods of heating your home such as heat pumps and furnaces. And because of a boiler’s extended life expectancy compared to these systems, it’ll pay off in the long run.
Here are four benefits of a brand-new boiler system:
1. More Reliable Heat
This is the benefit you’re likely to notice the most. Turning on your boiler system and enjoying its quick heating comfort is a huge advantage. You’ll also notice the added advantage of enjoying evenly heated rooms as well.
2. Improved Energy Efficiency
A new boiler will make the most of its energy source and of the water that it’s heating. This means it will use less of these materials, saving you money on decreased utility bills over the long run. When you consider that your home’s heating accounts for up to 60% of your energy usage, this can end up making quite a big difference in how much you’ll pay over the lifespan of the system.
3. Fewer Repairs
A properly working boiler should require not only fewer boiler repairs than a furnace, but also need fewer repairs than an outdated, inefficient HVAC system. Also, your new boiler should last a long time since boilers have a longer lifespan, meaning you won’t need to replace it as soon as a furnace. Boilers can last for 20–25 years and furnaces average 10–15 years. That’s quite a substantial difference.
4. Increased Home Comfort
Many homeowners swear by the radiant heat that boilers provide. It’s an entirely different level of comfort compared to a forced air system such as a furnace. Many compare it to the feeling you get when standing in direct sunlight—a cozy warmth that seems to radiate through your entire body.
Go With a Pro for Installation
A boiler must be installed by an experienced professional if you want it to operate as efficiently, effectively, and safely as possible. It’s also essential that your new system is properly sized for your home if you want it to operate at peak performance levels. That’s why you should rely on our team for boiler installation.
