Boiler systems heat and pump water throughout the building via a series of pipes and radiators, baseboard convectors, or other devices; cooled water then returns to the boiler and is reheated, repeating the cycle and ultimately providing heat. While most residential boilers run on natural gas, they can also be powered by heating oil, propane, or electricity.

What to consider when selecting the perfect boiler in Slate Hill, NY.

As with all HVAC equipment that is used frequently during The Hudson Valley's long winters, time eventually takes its toll on a boiler. Boilers that are more than 15-20 years old, that require frequent repairs, or that are simply not energy efficient should be replaced as soon as possible. New innovations in home heating have led to a plethora of options in modern boilers. There are several factors to consider when selecting the boiler that works best for your Greater Cleveland home, including:

  • Size: The capacity of a boiler is measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units), or the amount of energy required to heat one pound of water one degree. A licensed boiler technician will be able to measure the number of BTUs you will need, taking into account factors such as how cold your climate is and the state of your home’s insulation.

  • Energy Efficiency Rating: You would be surprised to know how large and inefficient old boilers are! Modern boilers cost much less money to run every month. When considering whether or not to purchase a boiler, look at its annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating.

  • Venting Requirements: Different boilers will have different venting requirements based on their size, fuel source, and other considerations. For example, boilers can be vented out of walls, roofs, or chimneys.


With so many boiler makes and models on the market to choose from, deciding which unit is best for your home and lifestyle can be very confusing. A Top Notch Plumbing & Heating Specialist can help you to select a boiler that has the perfect combination of high energy efficiency, correct size, and reasonable price.
