Q: How do I know when it’s time to replace my oil heat system?

A: Here are some rules of thumb to help you decide whether to replace or repair your heating system.

Replace your system if:

  • It is more than 20 years old and only in average condition.
  • It does not keep you as comfortable as you would like.
  • It breaks down frequently.
  • It is burning too much fuel.

Repair your system if:

  • It is less than 10 years old and in good condition.
  • Your heating costs have been acceptable.
  • You’re pleased with your level of comfort.
  • Its performance is reliable.
  • It is still under warranty.
