Upgraded heating system = lower energy bills, increased home values

Home heating and cooling make up more than 50% of a typical homeowner’s utility bills, according to U.S. Department of Energy. Fortunately, the heating equipment available today is much more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than ever before. For example, older furnace and boiler systems have efficiencies ranging from 56 to 70 percent. Modern systems convert almost all the fuel to useful heat, achieving efficiencies as high as 97 percent. That translates into significant savings; an upgraded system can cut your energy bills by up to 40% every year.

Whether your home uses natural gas, propane, or oil as its source of heat, you can enjoy significant monthly savings and other benefits by installing new equipment:

Furnaces: Furnace models available today are extremely efficient, offering direct drive blower motors that can be adjusted to any home’s configuration. They are also quieter, more reliable, and offer increased home comfort.

Boilers: Modern boilers can automatically adjust their heating level based on outside temperatures, saving homeowners hundreds of dollars on their yearly utility bills.

Heat Pumps: Today’s high-performance heat pumps generate more heat at a lower cost than ever before, and modern technologies are setting new standards in comfort, reliability and efficiency.

Homeowners who choose to upgrade their heating equipment enjoy a cleaner, more efficient and reliable system, increased comfort and safety, fewer service calls, and avoid untimely outages. Additionally, a new system can significantly increase a home’s value. Today’s buyers look for upgraded HVAC equipment when purchasing older homes, so replacing heating equipment can become a major selling feature, and increase a home’s market value.
