Aside from the investment of a residential property, heating and cooling accounts for the second major expenditure of owning a home in St. Louis, Chesterfield, Towne and Country and other local townships of East Missouri. And when homeowners are faced with the replacement of a boiler system or boiler installation, there’s a tendency to overlook critical features, which can alleviate future heating system repairs and headaches. Cheaper, less energy efficient boilers are often high maintenance and riddled with malfunctions.

The St. Louis heating and air conditioning company recommends that consumers shop for the most vital characteristics of a boiler: safety, dependability and energy savings.

Quality. Never compromise quality for cost when shopping for a boiler. The leading manufacturers for boilers provide a warranty. Some of these brands include

Lochinvar, Buderus, Burnham, Peerless, Weil McLain, Carrier, Dunkirk, GE/Rheem, American Bryant, Noritz, Grant Boilers and many more.

Energy savings and conservation. Consider a boiler system, generating British thermal unit inputs of 150,000 to 300,000 an hour, coalesced with minimum annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of at least 84 percent. This represents an 84 cent savings per dollar, consumed to warm the home. Two stage firing contributes to a boiler’s energy savings and conservation, as well, matching the output of heat to the demands of the system.

Safety. An electronic ignition assures safety by alleviating the perpetual need of a burning pilot light. This boiler system feature also promotes reliability, without any frustrating flame failures.

Sealed combustion chambers extract outside air, obstructing any build up of fossil fuels and air pressure. This happens to be another hazard free feature that complements energy savings,

Dependability. Opt for an energy efficient boiler and hire a licensed HVAC contractor to ensure for an expert foolproof boiler installation.
