If you are worried about your heating system, AFC is here for you to help you upgrade to a new, well-made, high efficiency furnace or boiler.

We’re with you every step of the way. At AFC, you not only can buy a new heating system, but we also help you get financing and any rebates you’re eligible for. You’ll get expert installation by our licensed, skilled service technicians. Once we install your boiler or furnace, we’ll provide the maintenance and repairs to keep it operating at maximum efficiency. We offer affordable service plans to help with both.

Winter is not an ideal time to be replacing a heating system. Let’s explore the reasons why you’re doing it now and not waiting until spring.

Your Heating System Has Completely Failed

If your furnace or boiler has broken down, and our service technicians say it’s beyond repair, get in touch with us right away. We’ll help you get a new heating system installed as quickly as possible to keep your home or business warm and safe.

There Are Signs Of Impending Failure

A furnace or boiler breaking down more often, needing more repairs, and repairs are getting more expensive, it may be time to make a smart heating investment for your home or business. If the cost of repairs is more than half the cost of replacement of your heating system, it makes more fiscal sense to replace it rather than keep repairing it.

Energy Costs Are Inexplicably Rising

Furnaces and boilers lose efficiency as they age. Older heating systems may have efficiencies below 60%. This means at least 40 cents of every dollar you spend on heating oil or propane is not going towards heating your home. Replacing it now allows you to start saving on energy costs as soon as you turn it on after installation.

There Are Danger Signs

Winter is the most dangerous time for carbon monoxide poisoning, with heating systems being a frequent cause of carbon monoxide leaks. Other risks an older or poorly maintained heating system poses are fires, electrical shock, and gas leaks. Replacing it now will protect you, your family or staff and your property.
