Advantages of Buying Reconditioned Boilers

A common misconception in regards to reconditioned boilers is the reliability of the equipment. Many buyers don't realize that a reconditioned boiler can actually run just as efficiently as a new boiler, but is typically 60% of the cost! This, along with many other advantages, can easily justify buying a reconditioned boiler over a new boiler.

The list below outlines additional advantages that are apparent when choosing to buy a reconditioned boiler:

  1. Delivery - Manufacturer's lead times can be 6 months to a year nowadays. Reconditioned boilers are generally in stock and available for immediate delivery.
  2. Warranty - Nationwide Boiler offers the same guarantee for new and reconditioned boilers, warranted for 6-12 months.
  3. Rent to Own - With a new boiler, you don't usually have the option of rent to own. A Nationwide reconditioned boiler can be rented with an option to buy at the end of the rental.
  4. Quality - As mentioned, the quality of a reconditioned boiler is commonly misconceived. Nationwide Boiler has established procedures and is an ASME code certified shop. Every reconditioned boiler is internally inspected and hydro-statically tested, with all systems checked prior to delivery to ensure quality and usability.
  5. Performance - A new boiler purchased from the manufacturer can be designed to meet specific needs, however a reconditioned boiler can be retrofitted to meet current industry standards; ASME, low emissions, control, etc.
  6. Start-up - A new boiler is generally put on line in 2-3 weeks, while a Nationwide reconditioned boiler is always thoroughly shop tested, reducing field start-up time.
  7. Installation - With a new boiler purchase, installation is generally not an option and part of the customer's scope of supply. Nationwide can offer complete turnkey installations for customers purchasing reconditioned boilers.
  8. Service Calls - Equipment manufacturer's typically can only be reached during normal working hours. Nationwide Boiler's service engineer's can be reached 24 hours a day at our toll-free number, 1-800-227-1966.

Next time you are in the market for a boiler and have to make the tough decision of buying a new or used boiler, be sure to take these factors into consideration!
