When Oxford Plumbing & Heating began as a family-owned and –operated business in 1951, many area furnaces and boilers were fueled by coal or oil. We’ve seen a lot of changes since then. Heating technology has evolved with cleaner fuels, better insulation and green technology. Today’s gas and electric furnaces can achieve more than 90% annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), saving home and business owners money on utilities and cutting harmful emissions by up to 50%.

Much of the heat that is produced is lost before it circulates through ventilation ducts and radiators. New furnaces and boilers benefit from improved combustion, smaller size, better insulation and innovation that includes:
When shopping for a new furnace or boiler, look for the ENERGY STAR® designation to find models that are highly rated for energy efficiency.
