main-shots-salesBlueox strongly believes in selling only the highest quality heating systems. You deserve a furnace, boiler, or hot water heater that is going to last for years. As part of our commitment to quality, we carry only the best kerosene, fuel oil, and propane furnace brands, including RUUD, Rinnai, Mitsubishi and Thermopride.

While some companies will claim to offer high-end equipment (and charge high-end prices), their customer experience says something else entirely. Instead of being taken in by a sales pitch, ask this vitally important question when you’re looking for a new heating system:

How efficient are these new furnaces?

High efficiency gas units should have a minimum of 95% annual fuel efficiency (AFE). This means that for every $1.00 you spend on heating, the AFE is the amount that goes toward directly heating your home. So if you have a 95% unit, 95 cents out of every dollar goes towards heat. Older furnaces and lackluster heating systems can average as low as 60 percent. Switching to a high-efficiency natural gas or propane system could save you hundreds a year on energy bills.

Warm oil heaters may not use the most efficient fuel, but it is loved and trusted by many. Look for units that are at least 86 percent efficient to get the best bang for your buck.

Electric heat pumps are the most advanced and efficient heating systems available. Electric heating units also give you the added benefit of air conditioning! Heat pumps are so efficient they can almost triple your energy output. Heat pumps should have a minimum SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings) of 16, meaning for every dollar you spend, up to three dollars of heat is created.
