Today’s oil furnaces and oil boilers offer homeowners a great opportunity to increase their comfort while decreasing their energy usage. These days, that’s more important than ever.
New systems now heat homes using significantly less energy compared to older generation equipment. Energy-efficient equipment can be installed with the latest technologically advanced controls to use only as much fuel as needed to heat your home or a specific part of your home.
Plus, today’s fuel storage tanks are virtually leak-proof. If your oil tank is more than 30 years old, it’s a good idea to speak with your Michigan oilheat equipment provider or HVAC contractor about your replacement options.

If your boiler or furnace is at least 20 years old, consider replacing your heating system soon. The performance and reliability of heating equipment typically begins to decline after that time period. And if you haven’t had your system regularly serviced by your local heating oil dealer, you might experience system decline even sooner.
At a minimum, a new system should help you save up to 20% on your annual heating costs. And if you significantly improve system efficiency by upgrading from a really old system to a high-efficiency unit, your savings could be 40% or more!
You’ll feel the difference in comfort too. And you’ll also save on repairs because you’ll minimize the potential of a system breakdown, which is a common problem with older systems.
As for your payback calculations, consider this example. A family who spends $2,000 per year to heat their home and reduces their annual costs by just 20% saves $400. If the new system costs $2,800, the payback time on a system investment takes only seven years.* Now that’s efficient!
