My steam boiler needs to be updated

The two of us live in an area where the hot and cold temperatures often go below zero in the winter

Last week, I called the Heating and Air Conditioning company to come out and look at my boiler. I wanted to have the burner updated before Winter arrived. When the Heating and Air Conditioning worker got to the house, I was shocked when he told me that I needed to have my boiler updated. He said that the inside of the boiler was rusting and I would need to have the entire heating system updated. My copper pipes were thinning and even the radiators were beginning to rust. The two of us talked about the expense of replacing the entire system which almost had me choking. My husbandy and I sat down that night and we started discussing all of the options open to us. The two of us knew what it was going to cost for the new heating system. The two of us started to look into odd options. The two of us considered putting in a total electric Heating and Air Conditioning system, but that was going to be honestly extravagant in our home. The two of us had an older home and we knew we would need to have all new insulation installed and we would also need our home rewired. Then we talked about having a heat pump installed. The two of us live in an area where the hot and cold temperatures often go below zero in the winter. When the hot and cold temperatures are so cold, a heat pump will not work efficiently. My husbandy wasn’t so enthusiastic about having a gas heating system, so we finally decided that what we needed was to just update the entire boiler system. The two of us knew it would last for the rest of our lives and beyond and with it being totally new, our heating system would also be highly efficient.
