A Satisfied Customer: Replacing an Oil Boiler with a Natural Gas Boiler

Are you thinking about replacing your boiler? This is a high efficiency, modulating Triangle Tube Solo 110 Boiler with a SMART40 Indirect water heater that we installed in De Pere, WI that replaced an old, inefficient fuel oil boiler. This new unit operates via natural gas, making it easier to use, more efficient, and is far better for the environment, as it cuts back on emissions and soot. This boiler/water heater will now heat all of the water for the space heating in the home as well as the domestic hot water the customer uses in their home. This change will save the customer hundreds of dollars in heating and water heating bills every year.

A natural gas boiler may be the right choice for your home-call Robinson today at (920) 490-3394 to discuss replacing your old, inefficient fuel oil boiler! For more information on the benefits of natural gas boilers, read more about it here.

When Should I Replace My Furnace?

A dying furnace has its warning signs, but they might not be inherently obvious. Here are a few hints that it may be time to replace your furnace:

  1. Your furnace is old. When properly maintained, the average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 20 years. If you’ve had your furnace for a while, it may be time to replace it completely. Check out our specials for more information on saving money when replacing an HVAC unit in your home!
  2. There are hot and cold spots in your home. Uneven heating can occur when a furnace begins to get older. If you are sure that cold areas in your home aren’t due to poor insulation, your furnace may be to blame.
  3. Airflow is poor. If you can’t actually feel the air coming from your vents, there’s a problem with your furnace.
  4. Your bills are on the rise. This may be the most obvious sign that your furnace is on it’s last legs. An old furnace is less energy efficient, resulting in more energy usage and, yes, higher bills. If you feel that you are paying more for heat now than you were a few years ago, it’s most likely due to a dying furnace.
  5. If you’ve tried replacing your furnace filter and it doesn’t seem to be helping much, it may be time to call Robinson Heating & Cooling to talk about replacing your furnace. Call (920) 490-3394 or fill out the form on this page for more information!

Winterizing Your Home

With winter fast approaching, Robinson Heating & Cooling is here to help you prepare for the cold while saving money on heating bills. It can be very easy to forget to winterize your home until it’s almost too late. Don’t be caught unawares; begin winterizing your home when it is still consistently above 50 degrees Fahrenheit outside.

Begin by winterizing your outdoor equipment and areas outside your home. Robinson Heating & Cooling can assist you in winterizing your air conditioner, which will require draining hoses and performing a basic cleanup before shutting down your A/C for a period of months. Cleaning your roof of any debris and checking for loose branches on trees around your home will prevent possible damage that may happen due to snow build-up. Any exposed pipes should be insulated and secured before freezing occurs.

Indoors, first check for drafts around windows, doors, light switches, and power outlets. Seal any problematic places with a door or window sealant, or with specialized insulating plastic sheeting. Turn down your water heater and thermostat-for every degree you turn down your thermostat, you save 3% on energy bills.

Finally, call Robinson Heating & Cooling to schedule your yearly tune-up for your heating systems. Optimize your home’s heating system and save money on your winter energy bills! For more information on replacing HVAC units in your home, see our installations page.

Save Money On Yearly Maintenance

Did you know that most HVAC manufacturers void the warranty on your HVAC unit if yearly tune-ups are not performed on the unit? It is highly recommended that a tune-up be administered every year to each of your HVAC units; this includes your furnace, air conditioning system, boiler, water heater…if you have it, a tune-up is almost certainly necessary.

Robinson Heating & Cooling understands that paying for multiple tune-ups a year can become very costly. To help alleviate costs without compromising service, we offer the Preferred Residential Customer Maintenance Agreement. This program is designed to help our customers save money and time by offering discounts on parts, priority when scheduling appointments, reduced cost in labor, and much more. Contact us using the form on this page or by calling (920) 490-3394 for more information on signing up!
