Heating Systems

When is it time to replace?

Certain telltale signs indicate it’s time to consider replacing heating equipment, or improving the performance of your overall system. It may be time to call Kosco to help you make a change if:

  • Your furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old
  • Your equipment needs frequent repairs
  • Your energy bills are going up
  • Some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold
  • Your home has humidity problems
  • Your home has excessive dust
  • Your heating system is noisy

According to the Energy Star website (www.energystar.gov), almost half of your home’s annual energy bill goes to heating and cooling the house.

The New York Oil Heating Association explains that homeowners upgrading their current boiler or furnace can reduce bills by 30% or more. They’ll also help the environment, because the new system will produce near-zero emissions and will run more efficiently. Even a fifteen percent improvement in efficiency can result in a $500 annual savings for homeowners in the Hudson Valley.

Boilers

System 2000 – Natural Gas, LP Gas or Oil Fired
Now you can upgrade your existing water heater, boiler, furnace or heat pump to a single high efficiency system engineered to deliver high performance to your home. System 2000 combines heat and hot water with a single appliance to maximize efficiency in all seasons. Additional benefits include having virtually unlimited hot water and whisper quiet operation.

System 2000 from Energy Kinetics is the first fully integrated heat and hot water system on the market. Unlike conventional boilers, System 2000 is activated only when you need heat or hot water. After heat and hot water needs are satisfied, System 2000 runs a Hybrid Energy Recovery® cycle that puts nearly every ounce of heat left in the boiler to work for you.

System 2000 remains cold when there is no heat needed, which keeps fuel dollars from being wasted.

System 2000 is designed for use with conventional heat and hot water systems for homes, buildings, pools, spas, snow melt systems and more. It’s also fuel neutral; it will run on propane or oil heat.

Furnaces

Thermo Pride – Oil Fired, LP Gas or Natural Gas
A Thermo Pride furnace offers real comfort, which is the purpose behind any heating system. “Temperature rise” makes the difference between feeling warm, comfortable air from the registers in your home or the feeling of cool air blowing across you when the furnace is on. It is the difference in air temperature from the point where it enters the furnace to the point where it exits. The higher the temperature rises, the warmer the air when it enters the rooms of your home. Thermo Pride has a standard 70°F temperature rise across its full line of oil furnaces. This is an air temperature up to 30° F warmer than the competition which will provide a far superior comfort level.

Thermo Pride also offers a line of quality furnaces. These furnaces offer proven quality components, heavier construction throughout the appliance, and a cabinet that is designed to last.
