Buderus Oil Fired Boiler Upgrade in Newbury, Massachusetts

Buderus Boiler Installation Newbury MA


The Allen home of Newbury MA recently called Townsend Energy to perform a boiler tune-up. Since our customer was well-aware of the fact that their Weil-McLain boiler was getting old, she inquired about the condition of her current boiler and a boiler upgrade for their home. She wanted to be proactive and replace her heating system before the possibility of dealing with a boiler breakdown and an emergency no-heat situation in the middle of winter.

Our technician, Matt Comeau, inspected her unit and determined that the Weil-McLain boiler’s interior was showing signs of excessive wear and tear. Furthermore, their old heater needed new return pipes. Because of the necessary repair and the age of the boiler, Matt recommended a water boiler upgrade for their Newbury MA home.

Problem: The Allen family had an old Weil-McLain boiler that was worn out and required repairs.

Solution: Townsend Energy removed their old boiler and performed a Buderus water boiler upgrade in their Newbury MA home.

When To Repair Vs. Replace Your Heating System In Newbury

image of woman with broken heating systemWith an old boiler or furnace, choosing whether to repair vs replace can be a tough decision. After all, we all would prefer to spend the money on repairs since it is far more affordable than replacing an entire heating system. However, is it really cost-effective to continually service an old and outdated system? Old heaters require frequent repairs, perform inefficiently, and are notorious for underperforming. So, when do you draw the line? Below, we discuss share some useful tips on how to make a decision like this.

When To Replace Your Heating System

  • Age: When your furnace or boiler is reaching the end of its lifespan, then it is time to think about its replacement. Furnaces tend to last 15-20 years with proper maintenance. Boilers tend to last up to 30 years, depending on the care it receives. However, it is important to note that heating systems tend to lose their efficiency as they age. Therefore, if your boiler is approaching its 15+ mark, then it may be time to replace it for improved efficiency.
  • HVAC Repairs: As heaters age, they require frequent repairs due to normal wear and tear. Instead of spending your money repairing an inefficient system, replace it with a new efficient system. Repair costs are expensive and can add up over time.
  • Uncomfortable Home: An ailing heating system will unable to perform its job of keeping your home comfortable. You will notice that the rooms closest to the heater will feel hot and the rooms farthest away will feel unbearably cold.
  • Noisy Operation: A system that is exerting itself will be excessively noisy while operating. If you notice this, then it may be time for a replacement. However, it is also vital that you maintain a regular tune-up schedule for your heating system. This prevents heating problems before they occur. Call Townsend Energy today!

What Benefits Will I Receive With A Heating System Upgrade In Newbury?

  • Save Money: If your system is 10 years old or more, you will notice that your repair costs are slowly increasing. If you currently have an ailing system and the cost to repair it is about 50% or more of the value of the system, then it is time for its retirement. You can save a great deal of energy by investing in a new, energy-efficient system. The AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ratings have greatly improved over the last decade. This surely adds up to a lot of energy dollars saved!
  • Tax Credits And Rebates: Investing in a new energy-efficient system comes with tax credits and rebates. Be sure to look for the Energy Star label and talk to Townsend Energy about the available rebates in your area.
  • Manufacturer Warranty: All new heating systems come with a manufacturer’s warranty. Should an issue arise, the repair costs are covered.
  • Environmentally Aware: Since new heating systems are more energy-efficient than their predecessors, they are also more environmentally friendly as well. You can do your part to help the environment by replacing your inefficient unit with a new one that uses energy more effectively.
  • Comfort: New HVAC systems are better at controlling the interior comfort of your home. With a new system, you will feel much more comfortable since your system can control the temperature and humidity levels much more effectively.
  • Convenience: New heating systems offer reliable performance. This means you won’t have to miss a day at work to repair your system or deal with a cold house in the middle of winter.

When To Opt For A Heating System Repair Newbury Massachusetts

In some cases, it is better to repair your system rather than replace it.

  • Newer System: Systems that are still considered relatively new should be repaired. This makes more financial sense since it still is expected to last for many more years.
  • Cost To Repair: If the cost to repair your furnace or boiler is less than half its expected value, then it is probably worth repairing the unit. This is especially true if you haven’t had to deal with frequent repairs and the system is expected to last a while longer.
  • Selling Your Home: Talk to your realtor to discuss whether repairing or replacing your unit would be better for the sale of your home.
  • Maintain: If your system is in the middle of its expected lifespan, then some simple maintenance can help prolong its service life. These techniques can help you get more mileage out of your HVAC system and put off an immediate replacement Talk to a Townsend Energy expert to see if this is a viable option for you.

Excellent Employees

Review of Townsend Energy

As a new customer of Townsend Energy, the first 2 Townsend Employees I met and interracted with were the gentleman that installed the new tank and moved the old tank out of the way and then a day later when the delivery truck arrived to fill the tank. Both men were very professional and very pleasant. Both made a point of explaining everything they were doing and all the safety requirements needed when dealing with propane. The installer, Kevin, Arrived on time and set about doing the install, making sure everything was correct.. He tested for leaks and then adjusted everything and didn’t leave until he was sure we understood everything. A first class install. The delivery driver, David managed to get his truck down the tiny streets of Plum Island and got the hose into my yard while being careful to avoid damaging gardens or grass. Again, extremely professional and pleasant enough to explain what he was doing and why he was doing it. Both are Excellent Ambassadors, representing Townsend Energy to Clients..

Review of Townsend Energy

Brian is very professional and knowledgeable . I requested him to fix my propane heater in my house as he has serviced them before for yearly maintenance. The heater needed an igniter, and Brian explained the entire job to me and ordered the part. Again, requesting Brian, he came back to service the unit and found the part was updated to a newer style, but low and behold, Brian was able to replace the part without any problems, and in record time ! Thank you Townsend Propane for having an awesome technician for over 20 years representing you !
