Posted: October 25, 2023

Be ready for winter with Vaughn Oil!

boiler service Greenville, RI If you have a boiler in your Rhode Island home, you know the great heating they provide.

Boilers are a closed-loop solution for heating your home. Water is used to generate and circulate warmth in the form of heated water or steam without needing fresh, potable water because the water is recirculated.

Water and steam are exceptional conductors of heat, surpassing forced-air heating in their ability to distribute temperature evenly. Moreover, they offer the added benefit of being less drying to the skin, furniture, and fabrics compared to the heated air emitted by furnaces.

With winter coming, now is the time to either schedule your annual boiler maintenance tune-up with Vaughn Oil, or, if your boiler needs replacement, arrange for a new boiler installation.

Installing a boiler properly may take a few days, but the benefits are well worth it. That’s because once your high-efficiency boiler is installed, you can immediately start saving on energy costs, and these savings accumulate rapidly. Make the most of your boiler installation and enjoy long-term energy savings.

No matter the duration of the installation process for your new energy-efficient boiler, the satisfaction you’ll experience once it’s operational will be unparalleled. Not only will it ensure a cozy and comforting heat throughout the winter season, but it also has the potential to decrease your energy expenses by up to 20%!

The process of installing your new or upgraded high-efficiency boiler varies, based on several factors, such as:

Same location: If you’re keeping your boiler in the same location and only upgrading the equipment, it can be a straightforward replacement that can be completed in just one day.

Different location: If you are relocating your boiler from its current position, the process becomes slightly more intricate, particularly if the new location is on a different floor within your home. Modifying the pipework and adjusting the fittings may extend beyond a single day. Generally, you should anticipate a two-day timeframe for completing this type of installation.

A whole new heating system: If you have never had a boiler in your home before, the fittings and pipework will need to be installed from scratch, which will likely take a few days. Typically, an initial boiler installation may require 2-3 days, or even longer if your home necessitates substantial structural modifications.
