We have many vintage homes in our area, and most of their owners love them and don’t want to make drastic modifications to them. But older homes are often difficult to heat. It’s not only due to less tight construction that allows for drafts and lower levels of insulation. It’s also the antiquated heating systems that can cost enormous amounts each winter to power. Old heat systems are sometimes Frankenstein monsters constructed of different parts, such as an oil-fired steam heating boiler, cast iron radiators, multiple different units for each floor, and electrical back-up heat.
If your home heating in Acton, MA is an old-fashioned system like a steam boiler or gas-fired oil furnace, or you’re needing to rely on space heaters for extra energy, and all of this is costing a small fortune each winter, we highly recommend an upgrade. The changes don’t have to be as drastic as they may at first appear—at least not if you work with our skilled professionals.
