Buderus Oil Boiler Heating System Installation In Old Lyme, Connecticut

buderus oil boiler installation old lyme ctOur customer called Wilcox Energy because they noticed that their home heating costs were quickly escalating. They lived in a historic 4800 square’ home, which required ample heat to feel comfortable. They wanted to find out what solutions were available to improve their comfort and reduce their energy costs.

We dispatched Mackinley Foster, one of our seasoned HVAC technicians, to their home for a heating system inspection. When examining the unit, he identified that their old Peerless boiler had been installed decades ago and was in use far past its life expectancy. Furthermore, they had an electric hot water heater which was costing a lot on a monthly basis.

As is common with older heating units, they lose their efficiency and use more energy to try to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. This explains our customers’ high energy costs. Also, they are unable to provide the heat necessary to feel comfortable.

Due to the age of their Peerless boiler, our technician recommended Buderus Logano G215/4 boiler installation for their Old Lyme, CT home. With this boiler installation, he also recommended the installation of an indirect hot water heater off the boiler to get a great supply of hot water while saving money on water heating costs.


Problem: Our customer had an outdated oil-fired Peerless boiler that was underperforming and a water heater that was costing a lot of money to operate.

Solution: Wilcox Energy installed an energy-efficient brand-new Buderus Logano G215/4 boiler with a Riello burner and an indirect hot water heater in their Old Lyme home.

Wilcox Energy: Paving The Way When Reducing Emissions & Increasing Efficiency With Bioheat And Buderus

Bioheat: the future of heating oil

At Wilcox Energy, being environmentally-conscious is very important to us. We are proud to be one of the industry leaders when it pertains to reducing the carbon footprint in the southern Connecticut area.

We help homes and businesses become carbon neutral by delivering Bioheat, a fuel that is composed of ultra-low sulfur home heating oil, and 100% renewable BioDiesel. This helps reduce emissions, making your home more environmentally friendly. And, the best part is that our customers do not need to make any equipment modifications or upgrades to take advantage of our BioHeat heating oil.

However, when a heating system has exceeded its life expectancy and is not performing in an energy-efficient manner, we recommend a heating system upgrade. In these situations, just as is the case with this household, we always recommend the installation of cooling and heating systems that have impressive efficiency (AFUE and SEER) ratings, like the Buderus boiler installation in this case study.

By using our fuel deliveries and HVAC services, you too can help the southern Connecticut shoreline do its part to be more environmentally conscious. Call Wilcox Energy to find out more!

What You Need To Know About Replacing Your Oil Boiler Or Furnace In Old Lyme

peerless boiler replacement old lyme connecticutLike many homeowners, you may take your home heating system for granted. In fact, you may not even give it much thought outside of changing the filters, ordering oil, or scheduling an annual HVAC service in the fall. However, if you have an older unit, then you may need to start giving your heating system a little more thought.

Lifespan Of An Oil Boiler In Old Lyme, Connecticut

Many manufacturers will agree that a boiler has a lifespan of about 12-20 years. Some, of course, will last less than this average and others, will last more.

Therefore, if you have an old boiler that receives proper maintenance and has been in use for 12 years or more, then you should start planning for a boiler replacement.

Is The Cost Of Replacing An Old Boiler Worth It?

No one will disagree that the cost of investing in a new boiler is expensive. It is an investment that costs several thousands of dollars. Fortunately, the cost of the new boiler is offset by the savings that you accrue from reduced energy costs.

Since new heating systems are far more efficient than their predecessors, they use less fuel and energy, resulting in lower energy costs. An old unit will use more fuel while trying to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home, consequently, costing you more in operational costs.

How Will I Know When I Need An Old Lyme Boiler Upgrade?

Fortunately, a home heating system does not stop working from one day to the next without giving obvious signs first. Not only should you be aware of how old your boiler is, but you should look for alternative signs that indicate that a replacement is approaching.

Below, we discuss some of the signs to be on the lookout for:

  • Boiler Uses More Fuel: When you have an older heating system, then it will start to use more fuel to heat your home. It is a sign of your system wearing down. However, it is important to note that when it gets to the point of being unbearable, then it is time for a replacement.
  • Boiler Repairs Are A Common Occurrence: As a heating system ages, it will require more repairs as a result of normal wear and tear. If you find that you are calling your local HVAC company on a more frequent basis, then it is time to start thinking of its replacement. Furthermore, if the boiler repair costs half as much or more of a new replacement system, then it is worth investing your hard-earned money on a new unit rather than dishing out money on an old one that is on its way out anyhow.
  • Discomfort In The Home: A classic sign that your oil boiler is on its way out is an uneven temperature from one room to another in your home. Also, the air in your home becomes very dry, dusty, or stale.
  • Venting Problems: Older home heating systems also have ventilation issues as they age. The heat exchanger may become cracked, leading to carbon monoxide entering your home. This gas is undetectable by human senses and is fatal. It is known as “the silent killer”. Therefore, be sure to install carbon monoxide detectors in your home and have your HVAC system serviced annually.

Mike was the technician and he arrived early as requested because I had to get ready for work. Was very accommodating to our confined basement space. Went above and beyond explaining the state my furnace is in and our oil tank. Explained what is recommended to prevent costly damages later. Grateful for his expertise and how Wilcox has been diligently taking care of our family for years.
