Some home upgrades are easily overlooked; among them are boilers and furnaces. Improving your home’s heating system with a high-efficiency boiler or furnace could slash your annual energy costs.
Your furnace sits all year, then works continuously for several months during the winter. After its summer hibernation, your heating unit should be inspected in the fall.
Your heating appliances need to be cleaned, too. Most manufacturer’s warranties are voided if they are not subjected to regular maintenance. Cleaning and inspections not only give you the peace of mind that the winter won’t be fraught with unpleasant surprises, but your unit will run cleaner and last longer.
Old units simply are not as efficient. Units older than 10 years can have an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) of 50% or lower. Our high-efficiency units have AFUE scores between 90-98%, which means you can save hundreds of dollars every year over the course of our long, Boston winters.
A new furnace will also heat your home more quickly and efficiency. By contrast, obsolete furnaces are very expensive. Units older than 1992 may not even meet the DOE pollution manufacturing standards.
Think of it this way, 56% of the energy used in the American home is due to heating and air conditioning. How much of your bill is going to an inefficient furnace or boiler?
Our company has over forty years of experience installing boilers and furnaces. If you want to make an investment that will last for decades and save you money in the long run, give CCL Mechanical a call.
We will help you save money. Many high-efficiency boilers and furnaces are eligible for rebates and tax credits. The current rebates and tax credits are good through 2016. You can get money back on your initial purchase and CCL will fill out all the paperwork for you! All you need to do is mail the paperwork. Also, high efficiency units also qualify for Mass Save Loans.
The technicians at CCL have specific certifications that allow us to install certain high-efficiency units that many of our competitors cannot. Our technicians are certified in Aquatherm piping systems, track gas piping, Navien, Wardflex, MegaPress and Rinnai services. CCL can help you if your pipes freeze, the boiler unit is unique, or even if the furnace needs a tune up. We also offer an emergency 24 hour service if your heating unit fails during the winter.
