With oil systems, the heating repair service technician can install a smaller nozzle, which costs just a few dollars and can cut fuel bills by 5-10%. Nozzles are sized according to fuel flow rates, the specification plate on your heating burner should include an acceptable flow range, and an average range would be from 0.50 to 1.25 gallons per hour (GPH). Nozzle size should not be reduced more than 25-30% below the lowest firing range on the specific catenulate.
With gas heating systems, reducing the nozzle (or orifice) size is tricky; costs and savings will vary widely depending on the heating system. On a furnace he ating that is highly oversized, both the nozzle orifice and the baffles could be changed at a cost of $60-80, with possible savings of 10-15%. The orifice size should not be reduced more than 30%. Consult a gas heating repair service technician to find out if size reduction is possible for your system. Boilers for steam systems should not be downsized.
Draft reduction (oil only)
The draft test will determine whether excess heat is being lost up the chimney. This problem is particularly common in heating systems that were converted from coal to oil. If the draft is too high, your heating repair service technician should install a barometric damper in the flue pipe. This will cost from $20-80 and can reduce fuel use by 5% or more. If a barometric damper is already there, it may simply need adjustment.
New oil burner installation
If you have an old, inefficient oil burner but are not ready to replace the whole thing, have a flame-retention burner installed. It will mix oil and air more thoroughly, operate with less air flow, and send less heat up the chimney. In addition, a flame-retention burner will block air flow through the burner when the heating system is not running, reducing heat loss up the chimney. Flame-retention burners cost $400-500, depending on whether a new combustion chamber and controls are needed. A properly sized flame-retention burner with reduced nozzle size should save 10-20%. You'll do even better, though, replacing the whole heating furnace or boiler with a state-of-the-art high-efficiency model. Modulating aqua stats (hot-water boilers only). An aquastat regulates boiler temperatures, keeping the water within a prescribed temperature range, usually around 180°F. Unfortunately, it will keep the water just as hot even when there is little need for heat, such as during spring and fall months. A modulating aquastat (or outdoor reset) senses outdoor temperature and keeps the boiler water only as hot as needed. Brand-name aqua stats such as Enertrol or Mastermind sell for $150-350 and reduce fuel consumption by 5-10%.
