Boiler mathematics

November 24th, 2011 at 04:21 am

We bought our guest house 2 years ago. It had an old oil boiler for heating the radiators and hot water.
It kept breaking down and was using a vast amount of oil. So after the first year we bought a new oil boiler. It cost 2,500 for the boiler and the fitting.
Well the new boiler is marvelous and it is probably saving us a fortune.
In the first year we filled the old boiler 4 times in a year. In the second year we filled the new boiler twice.

The old boiler cost us about 1260 in fuel costs.
The new boiler about 840.

At this rate I will be able to afford another boiler, but I don't know what I will do with it.
I would recommend an oil boiler to anyone except of course an Eskimo.

    Glad the new boiler is working out for you.

    We had a similar experience when we purchased a new refrigerator to replace the old chestnut that looked like it was from the late 1970s. It cost us something - I can't recall exactly how much - to get the new one delivered and in place, but once we did that we felt like we had some insurance that it would lead to savings on our entire electric bill. (Yes... it dropped by over 1/3!)

    Indeed, the new boiler, despite its price, will soon be able to bring you incredibly large savings in the purchase of fuel for heating.
