What is a boiler?
Boilers heat water and provide either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems or can heat air via a coil.
A boiler’s efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). The Federal Trade Commission requires new furnaces or boilers to display their AFUE so consumers can compare the heating efficiencies of various models. AFUE is a measure of how efficient the appliance is in converting the energy in its fuel to heat over a typical year
How a boiler works?
A) The thermostat sends a signal to the controls on the burner.
(B) The fuel pump draws oil through a filter to the burner.
(C) The burner turns the oil into a fine spray, mixes it with air, and ignites it in the combustion chamber, causing the chamber to get very hot.
(D) Water circulates around the combustion chamber.
(E) A circulator pumps the heated water through radiators or baseboards to heat the home. The air eventually circulates back to the heat exchanger and the cycle continues.
(F) An expansion tank adjusts to varying pressures. Eventually, the water returns to the heating unit to begin the cycle again.
(G) Combustion emissions are vented out the flue.
(H) Hillside Oil Heating & Cooling delivers is a full-service heating oil company. We deliver heating oil to your home and can install, maintain, and repair oil (and natural gas, propane gas, and electric) heating systems, including boilers, in DE, MD, & PA.

If your boiler is old, worn out, inefficient, or significantly oversized, the simplest solution is to replace it with a modern high-efficiency model.

Energy-efficiency improvements will save money on a new boiler because you can purchase a smaller unit.

“I was very impressed by the timely response to my ’emergency’ call. I left a message after 9 PM at night, and Joe, the tech, was at my door by 11 AM – after several early morning calls by a very pleasant, and reassuring, lady at your office (actually her first call was from her home, before business hours!). I was expecting to be told to get in line behind previously scheduled customers. Joe came and quickly diagnosed and fixed it. As soon as I described what I’d heard and seen, he said he knew what it was – and he was right! Best of all, since I’d just re-upped my service contract, the cost was surprisingly low. This experience really demonstrated the value of the service contract, and the good choice I made with Hillside. Thank you!” ~ 100% rating –
