Cooper’s specializes in converting oil-fired heating systems over to electric in Newfoundland. Oil to electric furnace/boiler conversion is the process of removing your oil-fired furnace/boiler and replacing it with an electric furnace/boiler unit. In this application, the oil-fired furnace/boiler and oil tank are removed from the home and disposed of.

If your home has a hot water radiation system, an on-demand electric boiler ( referred to as a “furnace” to some) is installed and uses the existing heaters ( or in-floor piping system ) to distribute the heat throughout the home. If your home has a forced air system, an electric furnace can be connected to your existing ductwork. The key component to making the switch from oil to electric is ensuring that there is enough capacity in the electrical panel to accommodate the installation.

Every home is different, and the KW size of the electric furnace/boiler required depended on several factors. The home may require an electrical upgrade if there is not enough space in the panel. Once the KW size of the furnace/boiler is determined, it would be recommended to consult with a certified electrician to assess the electrical requirements. Government rebates may be available to homeowners who make the switch from oil to electric.

Is an electric furnace more efficient than an oil furnace?2023-10-24T11:15:02-02:30

Electric furnaces are generally more efficient in converting energy to heat than oil furnaces. Electric systems can achieve nearly 100% efficiency since all the electricity consumed is converted into heat. Oil furnaces, while efficient, may lose some energy in the combustion process. However, the overall efficiency depends on each system’s specific models and maintenance.

Electric furnaces can sometimes be more cost-effective, especially with advancements in energy-efficient technologies.

Is it worth switching from oil to electric heat?2023-10-24T11:13:42-02:30

Switching from oil to electric heat can be worth it for several reasons. Electric heating systems are often more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly and can result in long-term cost savings. Additionally, electric heating eliminates the need for on-site fuel storage, reducing the risk of leaks and environmental contamination associated with oil.

Can you convert an oil furnace to an electric furnace?2023-10-24T11:13:14-02:30

Yes, converting from an oil furnace to an electric furnace is possible. This process involves removing your oil-fired furnace/boiler and replacing it with an electric furnace/boiler unit.

In this application, the oil-fired furnace/boiler and oil tank are removed from the home and disposed of. The feasibility of the conversion depends on factors such as the electrical capacity of your home, the heating needs, and the existing infrastructure.

What is the difference between a furnace and a boiler?2023-05-25T17:37:11-02:30

Furnaces distribute heated air through a house using ducts, while boilers heat water and distribute it through baseboard radiators or in-floor heating. It is quite common for homeowners to refer to their oil-fired or electric hot water unit as a furnace. We get it and understand what you mean when you call it a furnace!

Is there a warranty included with a new furnace or boiler?2023-03-27T16:07:27-02:30

Why should I pay to maintain my furnace?2023-04-18T11:42:59-02:30

An annual inspection, cleaning, and, maintenance of your heating boiler/furnace, will ensure the system is working to its potential. This can also help to reduce unexpected breakdowns during the heating season. Regular maintenance will also help the longevity of the boiler/furnace and distribution system.

Furnace/Boiler manufacturers do recommend annual inspections and regular maintenance by a technician. In addition, their manufacturer warranty terms are very clear about damage caused by lack of maintenance. Annual inspections can also find small problems that can be rectified before they turn into major issues.
