replacing water boiler/oil burner

Anyone replace their entire oil burner system recently? Do you mind sharing how much it was to buy and install a new water boiler and burner? How much has your oil delivery bills gone down since then?

Just trying to figure out the costs of it all.....

Thanks!

Our oil burner is on it's last legs. When Slomins was here servicing it recently, they told us it's about $5,000 to replace the burner.

Teri, as part of the AC, we also replaced our furnace (we have gas heat though) and several companies quoted us about $3500. I realize oil burner is different though.

Yes, we replaced a separate hot water heater (need it for the jacuzzi tub), a Weil McLean (my contractor said that's top of the line and will last for 30 years) burner, and got a new oil tank installed outside of the house in a tub.

My contractor started out life as a plumber and he put the boiler/hot water heater in for us. I think he charged us $6,000 including installation and the cost of the system. I saw his cost so it was an excellent price. We get our oil COD (last delivery was $1.99 a gallon) so I didn't want a company to put a "free" one in because they make up the difference with a higher price for oil.

It came in a thousand pieces and took him 3-4 days to put in.

Thanks everyone!

When you replace the whole system, would that normally include the actual oil tank too? I didn't think about thatChat Icon

I first thought the total cost would be around $7k, so quotes of around $5k are better Chat Icon

The oil tank was not replaced.
We got ours done last year. Some of the chaper systems we $3K. And the really expensive ones were $9-10K. Our was about $6K I think.

I heard the average boiler replacement runs around 5k. This does not include the oil tank... but I would imagine if your tank is already above ground they can just use the existing tank.
