Colonial homes that are commonly seen in Flemington NJ may experience the exact same circumstances as the Garcias. They had an old and outdated cast iron boiler that came with the house when they purchased it.
Many older homes, such as theirs, have not had their boilers updated in quite some time. This is a frequent situation that we run into. Our solution was to perform an Energy Kinetics System 2000 installation in their home. This is rated as one of the best energy efficient oil boilers on the market today.
When boilers extend past their service life, they give obvious signs that it is time for a replacement. The first is the age of the boiler. When a boiler is 15 or more years, then it is nearing the end of its lifespan. Another indicator is an increase in energy expenses, year over year.
