Boiler Boost

- 11:55 am - September 20th, 2017


How did your home heating system hold up last winter? If you experienced less than optimal levels of comfort inside your home, it might be time to look into upgrading your old boiler! An upgrade can bolster the integrity and improve the comfort of your heating system, and cut greenhouse gas emissions and fuel costs. Tracey Energy also knows the signs to look out for that may indicate that upgrading can save you money and keep your family comfortable day and night.

  • If your boiler room or boiler is hot when it’s not making heat or hot water, your system most likely has high idle losses. Idle loss is the amount of fuel you burn for the boiler to sit at idle.
  • If your boiler runs in short cycles, you may be spending more money on fuel to maintain temperature compared to a properly sized boiler.
  • Pilot lights are found on older equipment and continuously burn fuel, also increasing the idle loss.
  • Old ducts can separate over time. If the ducts aren’t sealed properly or aren’t insulated, especially in unheated spaces, they can cause tremendous heat losses.

If you’re experiencing any of the above, or you’re just looking to make the switch to a higher-efficiency heating system, Tracey Energy will help you the whole way. We carry boilers from top brands like Burnham, Utica and Rheem. Stay ahead of the wailing winds of winter by contacting us today!
