How often should I have our boiler serviced?
Most manufactures suggest that the boiler be serviced annually, whether it is oil fired or natural gas fired.
Why is radiant heat more efficient?
Radiant heating has several advantages. It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because it eliminates duct losses. People with allergies often prefer radiant heat because it doesn’t distribute allergens like forced air systems can.
What are the benefits of instant hot water heaters?
There are several benefits: Tankless units (also called “on demand” units) heat the water only when you turn on the faucet. Because they are heating the water only when the faucet is engaged, they eliminate the extra cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank, so you waste less energy. Additionally, they require less space which can be helpful in tight areas. Finally, the chances of running out of hot water when back-to-back showers are taken is seriously decreased.
