When it comes time to choose your home’s next boiler—whether because it is old, or just stopped working one day, it may be hard to determine which one you need. If you are on the market for a new boiler, here are some things that you can keep in mind as you talk boilers with a heating technician or company:
The type of boiler fuels you prefer.
While the answer to this question might already be apparent (due to your current boiler), you should know that you have the option of choosing either a gas-powered or oil-powered boiler. If choosing one over the other would allow you to save more energy because of where you live, now is the time to make the switch.
Your Ventilation System.
If you have a ventilation system that requires a certain boiler over another, this is something you need to discuss with the heating technician. In fact, you might have to consider reworking your ventilation system if you have your eye on a certain boiler.
The size of your home.
If you realized that your boiler was having a difficult time meeting your heating needs soon after you added a second story or made another addition to your home, it’s time for a bigger boiler. But, if you didn’t notice any difference, you still have the option to use a smaller unit.
These days, there is no denying that some boilers are better at doing their job than others. This is especially true for the energy-efficient models. Although high-performance boilers can cost a bit more than the typical boiler, the benefits of choosing one are numerous.
