With the winter almost upon us, it’s time to evaluate whether you need boiler replacement in New Hope. After all, there’s only one thing worse than ridiculously high energy bills, and that’s being stuck without heat in the middle of the winter!
Though many homeowners try to hold onto their old boilers for as long as possible, this isn’t the most cost-effective strategy. According to the Department of Energy, older boilers have efficiencies ranging from 56% to 70%. That means that of all of the heat generated by the appliance, between 56% and 70% actually goes into heating the home. The remaining 44% to 30% escapes!
Yet you’re still paying for that escaped energy!
Modern boilers have efficiencies as high as 98%, which means that only 2% of the energy escapes. That means your energy bills will be much lower. Plus, it’s important to understand that investing in a new boiler will add considerably to the value of your home. And that in turn can make it more attractive to buyers in the event you’re thinking of selling in the future.
