Boiler (Oil or Gas)
Smart Boiler Operation Cuts Your Costs
A boiler heats your home by burning gas or fuel oil to heat water or steam that usually circulates through radiators, baseboards, or radiant floor systems. (Some systems combine boilers with warm-air heat.) Boilers that earn the U.S. Energy Star® rating deliver higher efficiency than standard new boilers available today.
Boiler Conservation Tips
Follow these helpful tips to achieve optimal efficiency with your boiler:
- Install a digital programmable thermostat. It puts a boiler on an automatic schedule: full heat during hours when the home is active, and reduced heat when the house is empty or the family is asleep. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) says that reducing a home's temperature by 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours a day can reduce total heating costs by 5 to 15 percent.
- Consider replacing your boiler with a high-efficiency Energy Star® qualified model. This one investment could reduce fuel consumption by 30% or more.
- Get a boiler tune-up. It will ensure you get maximum performance from the fuel you buy.
