Boiler Installation: Costs & Energy Efficiency Ratings

Through the past decades, boilers have undergone significant advancements, making them unavoidable inclusions in the modern day household. In fact, they happen to be the most practical option for home heating in comparison to pricey furnaces. Until just a few decades ago, boilers were merely 68 to 72% efficient, which meant that almost 30% energy would be wasted. However, today, the efficiency levels have climbed to almost 97%. Similarly, you can also lay your hands on mid efficiency variants that operate on an efficiency level of around 80%.

 

Technological Improvements

Large scale technological improvements over the years have been primarily responsible for efficient performance levels. Older models had to depend on pilot light, a heavy heat exchanger among other things. That would guzzle loads of energy. The mid efficiency boilers available today work on electric ignition that immediately switches on along with the system and has compact components that consume less energy. If you opt for high efficiency boilers, these steps are only taken further. These work on a sealed combustion chamber along with a second heat exchanger for reducing heat further.

Proper Evaluation

However, retrofitting an older boiler could prove to be a better option in comparison to boiler replacements in some cases. The cost of boiler installation could be hefty. Retrofitting could also involve countless tasks requiring wider variety of accessories dependent primarily on the style of the older unit. You would need to compare the estimates along with the predicted energy efficiency parameters with the boiler installation costs and the efficiency levels of the brand new unit, in order to make a call.

Costs of Installing Boilers

If you realize you need a boiler replacement, the installation costs could be $2,500 to $4,000 for mid efficiency systems. The installation costs for a high efficiency system might vary from $3,000 to $9,000. Irrespective of whether the boiler runs on gas or oil, the price ranges for both types of boilers would be the same. The boiler costs could be dependent on several other factors including:

  • There could be a requirement for a brand new chimney liner in case you are upgrading to a boiler that enjoys higher efficiency. The prices
  • would be around $300 to $700 for the gas operated boilers and $700 to $1,800 for those operating on oil.
  • Costing for removing the old unit could range from $300 to $1,500.
  • Higher efficiency systems often provide tax credits. Different states would have different provisions for the same.
