You're not driving a 20-year-old car, so why is there a 20-year-old (or older) boiler or furnace in your home? Older comfort equipment is far less efficient than the newest systems, which really are modern marvels. Today's boilers and furnaces are technologically advanced, integrating features like microprocessors and variable speed motors that can adjust the unit's output according to your comfort needs. When you upgrade your heating oil system, you can lower your energy costs by up to 30% or more. You can also increase the value of your Hamptons property — Realty professionals consider a heating system upgrade an excellent investment.
High-efficiency heating is also your best protection against energy price inflation. By using fewer gallons, you decrease your exposure to any price increases that occur.
Here is a look at some of the manufacturers that W.C. Esp represents.
Buderus is a world leader in the development of heating technology. The company has introduced a number of pioneering products to the U.S. market, including the G125BE, which is the first conventional oil-fired boiler to achieve an AFUE rating of 90 percent. The company also markets the Low-Nox Buderus BE burner, which reduces emissions and soot buildup by reburning the combustion gases. Buderus boilers can be equipped with Logamatic electronic controls that promote even heating by adapting system operation to match the weather conditions.
Peerless is one of the world's leading manufacturers of cast-iron boilers, with a variety of models suitable for all applications. The Peerless Pinnacle is one of the most efficient oil-fired boilers on the market, with an AFUE rating of 92 percent. It employs advanced condensing technology to squeeze more usable heat from every gallon than a conventional boiler can. Peerless also offers the Pro series of boilers that combine a three-pass design with a small footprint and a high-efficiency burner, as well as direct-vent models that are perfect when a sound chimney is not available. All Peerless boilers feature an insulated, enameled steel jacket that reduces heat loss.
Warm-air heating systems have come a long way in recent years with the introduction of variable speed blowers that enable the furnace to deliver heated air at different speeds. This flexibility promotes even heating without the large temperature swings that can occur with older systems.
Thermo Pride has been making top-quality home comfort systems in Indiana for more than 50 years. The company is proud of its small-town values and deeply committed to customer satisfaction. Designers continuously improve product efficiency while maintaining the Thermo Pride commitment to reliability. The latest models incorporate innovations like energy-saving blowers and two-stage burners that curb fuel usage in moderately cold weather.
We install flame-retention burners from the world's best manufacturers. A replacement burner costs less than a new boiler or furnace replacement and can reduce fuel consumption by as much as 17 percent.
Beckett heating oil equipment offers you the very best in engineered efficiency and advanced technology. Upgrading to a new Beckett burner provides you with a high-performance product that runs quietly and is engineered to last. And owning a Beckett burner can lower your service costs in addition to lowering your fuel costs.
Riello heating oil burners are designed for maximum efficiency and reliability, using reliable solid-state components that reduce maintenance cost and virtually eliminate breakdowns. Innovative features include an automatic air shutter that closes when the burner is not in use to reduce heat loss and a heavy gauge metal cover with sound-attenuating insulation for extremely quiet operation.
Water heating typically accounts for 14 to 25 percent of a home's energy cost, and homeowners can achieve attractive savings by upgrading to a more efficient water heating system. W.C. Esp and our sister companies install both direct-fired and indirect-fired water heaters.
A direct-fired water heater has a dedicated heat source, such as an heating oil burner. An indirect-fired water heater has no heat source of its own; instead it draws heat from the boiler that is used to heat the home. Indirect water heating can be enabled with a prebuilt combination system or with a boiler and a water tank that are installed separately. Indirect water heating is often the best choice for efficiency. Here is a look at four of our most popular brands of water heaters.
Recognized as the leader in oil-fired water heaters, Bock provides quality in construction, efficiency in performance and durability in operation. The company's patented multi-finned Turboflue® transfers more than twice as much heat to the domestic water as its competitors, minimizing heat loss up the chimney. What does this mean for you? A hotter, quicker shower; energy and water conservation; and lower bills.
John Wood oil-fired water heaters are manufactured to the highest quality standards by one of North America's leading water heater manufacturers. Their exceptional reliability and performance has earned the loyalty of professional plumbers and contractors across the country. John Wood water heaters feature patented TankSaver® technology that impedes corrosion and extends tank life. The ceramic fiber combustion chamber maximizes heat retention, while an immersion-type aquastat allows for precise water temperature control.
Buderus hot water tanks provide clean, pure, and reliable hot water comfort for many years. The average household spends up to 30% of its energy dollars producing domestic hot water, so Buderus designed a super-insulated tank that protects against heat loss with the DUOCLEAN™ thermal glaze. The smooth glass-like coating provides added protection against the corrosive effects of minerals that are naturally present in water.
Dubbed the "Rolls Royce of water heaters" by Consumers Digest, the Vaughn Top Performer offers unequaled performance and reliability. Vaughn's secret is the Hydrastone lining - a half-inch seamless layer of specially engineered cement that coats the entire inside of the tank, protecting it from the corrosive effects of water. The Top Performer PLUS series features a new heat exchanger design and a unique cold water diffuser.
The heating oil tank is a vital component of the heating system, and it must be maintained and eventually replaced like all the others parts. W.C. Esp installs the very best in replacement heating oil tanks.
Heating oil customers have the distinct advantage of safely storing fuel in a tank on their property. And when you're in the market for a new tank, we recommend the Roth Safety Tank. Roth tanks exceed the most recent industry safety regulations, ensuring consistently superior quality and peace of mind. Roth Safety Tanks feature a weld-free galvanized steel outer tank and a seamless, high-density polyethylene, corrosion-resistant inner tank. The Roth tank requires minimum floor space and is 55 percent lighter than a 12-gauge steel tank, with a larger storage capacity, too. Plus, it boasts the best warranty for similar tanks in the market — lifetime protection against corrosion and a limited 10-year warranty against leakage.
The pros at W.C. Esp will install your tank quickly and easily and take care of getting rid of the old one in an environmentally friendly manner.
