Boiler Heating System Installation In Rahway, New Jersey

In order to make their home easier to sell and to increase the house value, the Huey family realized that they had to update their heating system and address the buried oil tank in the backyard. They called Skylands Energy Service for a consultation.

One of our senior heating consultants, Ted Francisco, inspected their home and assessed the situation that the Hueys faced. Working within the Huey’s budget, Ted was able to come up with a cost-effective, energy efficient, code compliant solution that would increase the Huey’s home value and make it easier for them to sell.

Ultimately, we installed a brand-new Peerless steam boiler heating system that was equipped to also provide domestic hot water. The noncompliant oil tank that was buried in the backyard was removed. We replaced it with a brand-new Roth 165 gallon oil tank. Not only would this improve the overall comfort of the home, lower its carbon footprint, and increase its energy efficiency, but these upgrades would also add to the home’s value.

Problem: The Huey family wanted to sell their bi-level home in Rahway, New Jersey. Their old heating system was fueled by oil and had an underground 550-gallon oil tank. In order to maximize the resale value of their house, the Hueys needed to upgrade their heating system.

Solution: Skylands Energy Service installed a brand-new Peerless WBV-03 steam boiler accompanied with a coil for domestic hot water. Additionally, we removed the buried oil tank and replaced it with a 165 gallon Roth oil tank.

Information You Need Before Replacing A Boiler Or Oil Furnace In Your Rahway Home

old boilerLike most people who own a home, you probably have not spent much time thinking about the heating system in your house except when you need to schedule an annual maintenance visit or fuel delivery. However, if your oil burning furnace or boiler is older than 12 years, you should consider investing in a new unit.

Typical Lifespan Of A Boiler In Rahway

According to manufacturers, most oil furnaces and boilers will only last from 12-20 years. Your system is likely to last for more than 12 years if you have been caring for it properly. Homeowners who are unaware of the age of their furnace or boiler or those who are already having difficulties with their heating system should consider purchasing a new unit.

Save Money By Purchasing A New Heating System

Purchasing a new furnace or boiler is a significant expense. However, the initial cost of the heating unit will usually be offset by savings on the cost of fuel over the following 12-20 years. A new boiler or oil furnace will work at maximum efficiency, heating the home during the winter months while using less fuel than an older unit would consume.

Signs That You Should Replace Your Rahway Boiler

HVAC costsFurnaces usually do not stop working overnight. Instead, the unit will probably show some typical signs in advance of a complete breakdown. If your furnace or boiler is older than 12 years, look out for the following problems:

Increased Use Of Fuel: When your boiler or furnace starts to consume more oil, this is a warning sign that the system is beginning to wear down. Boiler and furnaces begin to become less efficient as they reach the end of their lifespan.

Frequent Repairs Required: If you find that your unit is requiring repairs frequently or if it starts to make new and unusual noises such as clunks or rattles, this means the unit is reaching the end of its lifespan. It is better to invest money in a new system that is more efficient instead of calling for repair services over and over.

Home Becomes Uncomfortable: If you notice your home becoming uncomfortable, this can be a signal to purchase a new furnace or boiler. Most people notice the air in the house becomes somewhat dry in winter. However, if you notice that the air in your home has become unusually dry, stale, or filled with dust, this could be caused by an aging, inefficient furnace or boiler.

If your thermostat no longer works correctly, or if it seems your home stays cold no matter how you set the thermostat, the problem could be in the heating system. When furnaces and boilers start to age, they no longer distribute heat evenly inside the home. If you have already insulated leaky windows and eliminated drafts and you are still finding that your thermostat no longer seems to work correctly, there may be a problem with the heating system.

Venting Not Working Correctly: Older heating systems often also tend to experience ventilation issues. There may be cracks in the heat exchanger. This problem can cause a dangerous situation as your home may fill up with fatal carbon monoxide gas. Every homeowner should install a carbon dioxide detector, but another good way to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning is to update the heating system.

Steps To Take When A New Heater Is Required

skylands energy logoThe best way to get an effective and efficient result from your new boiler or furnace is to have an expert professional evaluate your home heating needs. They will remove your existing older unit. Also, when upgrading a heating system, it is the ideal time to have your ductwork and other components inspected.

Furnaces and boilers come in different sizes. Therefore, an HVAC contractor will need to determine the size that meets your heating requirements. The size of the unit influences its cost. The price will also be affected by the brand and the efficiency rating of the furnace or boiler. The higher the efficiency, the higher the price. Although the unit may have a high initial rate, it will save money in the long run by cutting down on the cost of fuel and costly repairs.

With the exception of being a little late (if what I thought I was told on the phone was correct) this was a good, quick, painless annual check up and cleaning, tech kept me informed on what he was doing.

Review of Skylands Energy

I requested Everett by name because when I had a problem with my boiler in the past, he took the time to figure out what the problem was, and wouldn't leave until I was satisfied. He showed me he really cares, and that is something you hardly see anymore. He certainly knows what he is doing with boilers. Everett is also friendly and personable, and he treats you with respect like you' re family. He takes pride in his work, and he won't leave you with a problem until it is resolved. And it is not only Everett who treats you this way...I feel like family to Skylands, and I intend to request Everett for all my future needs. If others use him, the won't be disappointed.

Review of Skylands Energy

I called at 8:30 reported no heat and I was told I was on the list to have a service person to my house before noon. The repair technician called shortly thereafter and said he would be there in ten minutes, which he was and the furnace was fixed before 11:00. I am a very happy customer!

Office staff was very helpful in scheduling a no-heat call for 1 zone in our house. Ryan was excellent in his explanation of the faulty valve for the zone and quickly replaced it. Such great service, thank you!! From a long time client.


Oil tank installation




Review of Skylands Energy

The crew arrived exactly at 8am as stated. They were courteous, efficient and informative. I was told the process would take about 5 hours and that's exactly how long it took. I was given the opportunity to ask where I'd like to have the tank installed and wasn't just told "this is where it's going". After the installation everything was shown to me and explained to me. All questions that I had were answered to my satisfaction. Both installers should be commended for what appears to be a job well done.
