There’s no right or wrong answer to the age-old question, “should I use a boiler or a furnace to heat my home?” Both methods will keep you and your family warm, it really just comes down to your specific needs!

Here are some advantages of relying on an oil-fired furnace:

  • Indoor Air Quality: Forced air systems are ideal because they filter the air as it moves throughout the system, providing your home with clean heated air.
  • Fast Comfort: Furnaces have faster start times when compared to electric or hydronic heating systems, and can quickly warm up your home within minutes.
  • Longevity: Furnaces have an average life expectancy of 15 to 30 years. They also operate more efficiently with the help of regular maintenance, often included in service plans like the ones we offer!
  • Efficiency: Modern furnaces boast efficiency ratings higher than 95% – meaning 95% of the fuel is used to make heat, while only 5% is lost through the combustion process.
