Choose the Best Central-Heating Boiler for Your Brownsburg HomeChoosing a central-heating boiler for your Brownsburg home is not a task you should take on by yourself. There have been enough changes in boiler technology and home energy efficiency in recent years that your choice can’t be to buy a newer version of your old boiler.

You need to work with an HVAC professional to make the best decision possible. Your HVAC pro will consider some of the following factors when selecting the right boiler for your home:

  • Old rules of thumb for sizing boilers based an a home’s square footage are not adequate for modern heating system designs. Your contractor should use guidelines outlined in Manual J from the Air Conditioning Contractors of America when sizing your new boiler. This way, the unique characteristics of your home are taken into account.
  • You will get the best return from your investment by choosing a boiler with a high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The most efficient models may cost a little more than less efficient models, but they’ll save you more money over the long-run in reduced utility bills.
  • If you have a choice of either natural gas or heating oil in your neighborhood, your contractor will discuss the pros and cons of each before recommending which boiler to install in your home. Oil-burning boilers can be a little more efficient than gas boilers, but natural gas prices tend to be more stable than oil prices.
  • If your water heater is nearing the end of its life along with your central-heating boiler, you might consider buying a combination system that maintains a supply of hot water along with providing heating.
  • Safety is a primary consideration when choosing a boiler. Your contractor should recommend a model with a sealed combustion chamber that vents gases directly outdoors.
