Case Study

Buderus Oil Boiler Heating System Installation In Madison, Connecticut

Overview

Our customer wanted to put their Madison home on the market. However, they had a 20-year-old Burnham oil boiler in place. The boiler came with the house originally. Due to age, their heating system did not perform well and was extremely inefficient. It could not provide the comfort that a buyer would need to get through the frigid Madison winter seasons.

Furthermore, the old heating system was not helping the property value. Like any home seller, our customer wanted to increase the value of their property. They called Wilcox Energy to explore their options.

One of our HVAC technicians inspected their heating equipment. He recommended a Buderus boiler installation for their Madison CT home.

Problem:

Our customer wanted to sell their Madison CT home. However, their house had an outdated oil-fired Burnham boiler that would affect the resale value of their property.

Solution:

Wilcox Energy installed a brand-new Buderus Logano boiler with Riello burner in their home.

When selling a home, having a new heating system will help improve the home’s resale value and have a positive impact on decreasing the time market, helping to get the home sold faster.

According to Realtor.com, a furnace that’s old or out-of-date will generally have to be replaced as part of the inspection report. Failing to do so can keep buyers from making an offer on your house. It can also lead buyers to ask you to lower your price, or even worse, to look elsewhere for a home in better working order. A brand new furnace may make your home more attractive to buyers, which can lead to a quicker sale.

After consulting with their REALTOR® and with Wilcox Energy, this homeowner decided to upgrade their heating system as a proactive step in their home selling journey.

These boilers perform well, providing the heat that is needed to feel comfortable throughout the cold Madison, CT winters. They are energy efficient and they are built to last. Also, they come with an impressive warranty, which would serve as a great selling point for our homeowners.

In this home, we installed a Buderus Logano G215-4 cast iron oil boiler with a Riello burner. Some of the features that come with this model include:

  • Energy Star rated
  • 86.2% AFUE
  • Cast iron heat exchanger
  • Chimney vent

Overall, our customers are happy with their new boiler installation. Their new oil boiler will increase the value of their home and is an appealing aspect to potential buyers. We were able to install their system quickly to help them get their home on the market on schedule.

Useful Information About Boiler Heating Systems For Madison CT Homes

The first place where you run to when it gets too hot or cold is your home. But without a heating system, there won’t be any difference between your home and the outside environment. That is why you need a working heating system. This system plays a major role in your home.

Even though this system does a lot to improve the conditions inside our homes, most homeowners do not give a significant amount of thought to them, except when they need to be refilled with fuel or scheduled maintenance is required. Apart from that, if you have a boiler or oil furnace that was installed over 12 years ago, it is time to replace it with a new one. Here is more on what you need to know about boilers and oil furnaces.

The Lifespan Of A Boiler In Madison

Most boilers and oil furnaces have a lifespan of 12 to 20 years according to their manufacturers. If you take good care of your unit by making sure that it receives regular maintenance, it will probably serve you well, providing efficient performance for longer than 12 years, which is the minimum number of years in the range. If you do not know how old your boiler or furnace is, or you are experiencing heating issues with it, it is best that you invest in a new one.

How a New Boiler Or Furnace Can Save You Money

A new furnace or boiler for your home is a huge investment decision you can make. Even though a single unit costs a significant amount of money to acquire and install, these costs will be offset by savings made on the cost of fuel enjoyed over the unit’s life span. A brand new unit from a reputable manufacturer will serve you for longer than the recommended number of years, with a lower operating cost than an older one.

Signs That it is Time for a Boiler or Furnace Replacement

If you have a good boiler or furnace from a reputable brand that you have kept well-maintained, it is highly unlikely that it will stop functioning overnight. Rather, these systems develop signs of an impending breakdown early enough that if you are keen, you will notice. Below are some of these signs that you should watch out for:

  • Fuel Use: The rate or level of fuel consumption is among the signs that your unit needs attention. If the system is consuming more fuel, then you need to have it replaced. Typically, when a furnace or boiler is reaching the end of its lifespan, its efficiency drops. You will, therefore, start to notice an increase in fuel consumption in your unit.
  • Repairs: If you hear clunking, rattling, or other noises that were not present before in your system, or you find that your unit needs frequent repairs in addition to normal maintenance, then it is very much likely that it is nearing the end its lifespan. Calling a repair company might help resolve the issue with your unit, but when you calculate all the money you’ll spend, it is simply not worth it. It is best to just save this money a buy a newer, more efficient system.
  • Discomfort: If you start experiencing discomforts in your house, for instance, cold spots in some areas and yet your boiler or furnace is powered on, it is time you consider replacing your current unit. Other signs would include a dry, dusty, or stale atmosphere in the home during winter. Another indication of a heating system problem is the temperature inside your house remaining cold when you change it. As a furnace or boiler begins to age, it develops problems in properly distributing heat throughout your home. If you experience such a situation, call an expert and consider replacing your system.
  • Improper Venting: Ventilation just like any other system gets worn-out as well over time especially in old boiler or furnace units. Apart from that, they tend to crack due to the intensity of the heat exchanger, which is a problem nearly all heating units experience. As a result, harmful gases such as carbon monoxide are leaked which are lethal. You should replace your heating unit and also invest in a carbon monoxide detector to prevent this.

Review of Wilcox Energy

Having just purchased our home and being completely overwhelmed, Julie has been amazing to work with to help sort out what we need to be doing with our HVAC systems in the home. She’s been a great resource and friendly guide throughout our process of getting up to speed. But the real kudos go to her and Greg helping to save our Memorial Day Weekend plans!! Our pool company opened the pool for us for the weekend so we could celebrate our anniversary and our house purchase but the pool heater conked out and wouldn’t work and the temp of the pool water was 69 degrees, unswimmable for anyone not a polar bear. Julie got Greg on the scene quickly and he very persistently worked to rectify the problem and got our heater working so that the kids didn’t kill me for bait and switching them on the pool opening! The pool was the highlight of our weekend (besides the Memorial Day celebration itself on Monday honoring our country’s heroes) and we were singing Julie and Greg’s praises all weekend for sprinting into action at a time that most people are trying to slide out the door to start their own weekends! It was an amazing save and one we truly appreciated and will never forget! Thanks, guys, you made believers out of us and we’re looking forward to working with Team Wilcox going forward!
