If you’re not sure if your heating oil boiler will keep you warm through another winter, don’t worry, Westmore Fuel is always ready to help.
Westmore has heating system options for every home and budget. As one example, we install the System 2000 from Energy Kinetics, the most efficient and versatile integrated heat and hot water system. Some of our customers have enjoyed annual savings of up to 40% after they upgraded to the System 2000. Plus, their homes stayed warm and toasty no matter how low the outdoor temperatures fell.
Like any piece of equipment, your boiler will eventually have to be replaced one day. But is that day near, or still far off? If you need a repair, should you keep putting money into your current boiler? Or would you be better off investing your money in a new, high-efficiency boiler?
First, let’s look at age. While the average boiler will last about 20-25 years, there are many home boilers out there that are even older than that. And while they may still be keeping homes warm enough, their efficiency rate is much lower than a new hot water boiler, which means you are using more fuel to generate heat. Some people have upgraded to a super-efficient condensing boiler, which converts water vapor condensation into heat and recovers some of the lost heat from waste gases.
Boiler technology has improved dramatically over the years and the new hydronic heating systems we install are much more efficient than the systems we installed for our customers decades ago. When we say efficient, we mean that the boiler puts out more heat with less fuel, which translates to big savings on your annual home heating costs, along with improved home comfort.
Westmore partners with the National Energy Improvement Fund (NEIF) to provide financing so our customers can take full advantage of the equipment upgrades we offer.
NEIF provides loan lengths of three, five or 10 years on its EnergyPlus financing for qualifying purchases with NEIF-approved contractors like Westmore Fuel. NEIF does not run credit reports, so your credit will not be affected in any way.
Read more about financing through NEIF.
Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), homeowners can claim a federal tax credit of up to $600 for installing ENERGY STAR-certified heating oil systems that use renewable fuel blends of at least 20% biodiesel.
Since Westmore Fuel installs high-efficiency heating oil systems compatible with our B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel, our customers can save money with this tax credit!
