High Efficient Boilers and Water Heaters
Home heating makes up approximately 40% of a households energy consumption. Replacing an old boiler or water heater with a modern, high efficiency appliance can severely reduce your monthly energy bill and carbon footprint. If your boiler is 20 years or older, it is operating at a maximum of 65% efficiency, whereas the boilers that we install are rated at about 95% efficiency. Please look at Viessmann, and Triangle Tube websites. Concerning water heaters- best to look at application to determine what is the correct one. For a rough estimate on what your monthly energy savings could be by upgrading, take a look at the ACEE's chart on the return of investing in high efficiency appliances.
