Purchasing a propane-fired boiler or furnace is a large investment, but it’s a smart one, too. A reliable energy-efficient heating system is an investment in your family’s comfort and the value of your home. You want to ensure that your equipment continues to run safely and efficiently for years to come.

Many people ask us how old a furnace or boiler needs to be before it should be replaced. It’s a complicated question, but here’s a good rule of thumb:
While boilers and furnaces can run without much trouble for 15 years, they start losing efficiency as they enter their second decade of service. As a boiler or furnace passes 15 years, its energy efficiency might be as low as 60 percent. You’re getting no heating value for two-fifths of the propane you burn.
At that point, it’s a good idea to consider a boiler or furnace replacement. Today’s high-efficiency propane products can have fuel efficiencies in the mid to high 90s. Imagine the fuel savings — not to mention the improved comfort — you’ll experience with a boiler or furnace upgrade.
If you’re at all concerned about your current heating system’s performance, reach out to us, and we can look at your equipment. It might need a tune-up. Or it could be time to replace it.
Regardless of whether the Sierra team installed your heating equipment, we’re always available to help if it seems to be struggling or not heating at all. Our locally based service technicians are available 24/7 for no-heat emergency boiler or furnace repairs.
That’s the value of entrusting your home comfort to a full-service company like Sierra Propane. We’re always there for you when the heat doesn’t come on in the middle of the night in January!
Of course, the most reliable way to prevent a last-minute furnace or boiler repair is to arrange a regular tune-up for your equipment. You should schedule a boiler or furnace maintenance check from a Sierra Propane technician every year.
This annual tune-up is an opportunity for our expert service professionals to clean and recalibrate your equipment. They can also identify, report and repair any minor issues before they develop into major costly breakdowns.
Also important — most manufacturers’ warranties become void if you don’t get a tune-up every year. So, you don’t want to skip service.
The best way to ensure that your heating system gets the regular service it needs is by protecting your boiler or furnace with one of our Heat Shield service plans. Each plan includes annual maintenance, plus priority service calls and discounts on parts and labor for repairs. You can check out information on our service plans.
