I would highly recommend the System 2000 to anyone considering it as a heating system for their house.
George L., Williston, VT
I would like to take a moment to tell you about the experience I've had with my System 2000 heating system.
Seventeen years ago I began researching heating systems for the house I was designing and going to build in Vermont. I was from the Maryland/Washington, DC area and knew I was headed for more severe winters there. I was interested in energy efficiency and was going to design some super insulation techniques into my home. One of the heating systems I came upon was the System 2000. As I got several contractors to give me estimates on their systems they all put down the System 2000. The heating system was going to have to heat a 4,000 square foot home with over 50 windows, some of them large windows. The contractors said the system was too small for my sized house and that the steel boiler would never last as long as a cast iron boiler.
For some reason, I was not convinced by these contractors. So I continued to research the System 2000 heating system and the company.
Well it’s been sixteen years and I have not been disappointed in my choice. Zero problems with the System 2000. That first year I only spent about a thousand dollars for heating the house and the domestic hot water. That was with outside temperatures that sometimes got down to 20-30 degrees below zero. Now remember, I used some special insulating techniques and I hand fitted the insulation myself. The vapor/air barrier was completely sealed around windows, doors and all exterior wall electrical switches and receptacles. Because the house was so tight I added a whole house heat exchange ventilation system in order to have controlled fresh air from the outside.
I have never felt the heating system has had to overwork to keep up with the job of heating the house. In addition, I’ve added an apartment with another fifteen hundred square feet. The same System 2000 now supplies hot water for a heat exchanger in the attic that uses forced air to heat the third floor apartment. The original System 2000 now heats about 5,500 square feet of living space and does it easily.
Without hesitation, I would highly recommend the System 2000 to anyone considering it as a heating system for their house.
I am highly satisfied with System 2000, it gives both zones of our house even heat.
Ernie K., Tunkhannock, ME
We recently received an oil delivery in the same period of time as last year and we went from 415 gallons to 215 gallons. Yes, I am highly satisfied with Energy Kinetics’ System 2000 it gives both zones of our house even heat and also provides us with a $40.00 savings on our monthly electric bills. Because of all of these factors I am very pleased to be able to recommend this system for you and your home.
It is the best investment I made for my home.
Virginia E., Orleans, MA
We had a 2000 Heating System installed in my home in July of this year.
It is the best investment I made for my home. It is very quiet with excellent heat. It is using less oil and giving more heat. I recommend it highly as an excellent heating system.
The System 2000 is everything you claimed and more, we couldn’t be more pleased.
Donna and Gregg R., Paxton, MA
When we had electric heat we were very uncomfortable with cold rooms and inconsistent temperatures throughout our home. The System 2000 is everything you claimed and more, we couldn’t be more pleased.
I saved 271 gallons with the System 2000 oil burner.
Ed P., Putnam, CT
I imagine you don't find many customers happy to pay a $638 oil bill, but I am happy to do so. Like everyone else, I'd rather see oil back to the buck a gallon of a couple decades ago, but since I have no control over that, I want to pay as little as possible.
I did the check of degree days since my last fill-up and compared oil use for the period to what my old oil burner would have used. For the same amount of heat, I'd have to be sending you $1020.00.
Going back over the season, from a fill up of 13 months ago, I saved 271 gallons with the System 2000 oil burner as compared to the older inefficient oil boiler.
The folks at Energy Kinetics have saved me a bundle of money, enough to more than pay for the system itself every year. It is working as well as the day it was installed and is helping my bank account.
The first time my wife Judy used the new system she said it felt like being at the "Sheraton".
Don & Judy B., Levittown, PA
It has been more than a month now since the installation of our new heating system and we couldn't be more satisfied to this point. The continuous flow of ""hot water"" is amazing, especially after eighteen years of squeezing a minor amount of water and trying to take a shower in two minutes or less. The first time my wife Judy used the new system she said it felt like being at the ""Sheraton"". And I don't have to stop the dishwasher, or washing machine in order to shower, that's great.
And like you said, I have on occasion gone to the heater to look and make certain that it's running because it is so quiet. Unlike our old boiler that was not only noisy but rumbled and was inefficient.
So far everything is on the money, and I am sure we will save money on oil usage, and with the prices going up all the time we are glad we made the change to the System 2000.
I would like to note that the gentlemen that installed the unit, and removed the old one, did a great job, from start to finish. They explained everything they did, cleaned up behind themselves, and were very polite and kind.
I continue to highly recommend the System 2000 to anyone who is upgrading their heating system.
Bruce S., Stockton Springs, ME
Nowadays everyone is always complaining about something and I thought I would NOT, and drop you a quick note.
Ever since I had ..... install the System 2000 on November, 6, 2006, it has performed in my home so much better than I ever expected. The huge 1960's era furnace we replaced never supplied enough domestic hot water and on really cold winter nights the house was chilly despite the old clunker running full tilt. Today, your deliveryman left 205 gallons of heating oil. First delivery since May, 7, 2009. I would have used at least that much in 2 months during the summer months just to heat my hot water with the old system.
When I first inquired about the System 2000...... explained exactly what they would be doing in replacing the old system. Your crew of installers completed the job in the time they said they would and since that time any questions or concerns have been answered promptly and to my satisfaction. I never expected such a return on this investment though. With the price of fuel so high last year I have now figured that this system will pay for itself this coming Spring.....It has been a pleasure dealing with your company and I have and will continue to highly recommend......and the System 2000 to anyone who is thinking of upgrading their heating system or building a new home.
Please pass along our best wishes during the upcoming Holiday Season and may you all have a Happy and prosperous New Year.
I can't believe how short of time this boiler runs, compared to our old system...there is a big savings.
David C., MA
Thank you for installing our System 2000 Frontier Boiler. I can’t believe how short of time this boiler runs, compared to our old system. We know there is a big savings on oil consumption. Also runs much quieter than the old one. We have plenty of hot water and the house is always warm. I like the Digital Manager very much. It shows what zone is on, temperature and etc. What a great idea. I feel the investment we made was a good one.
We have what seems like a constant flow of hot water (our ten year old likes long showers).
Joe G., Croton-On-Hudson, NY
We purchased our System 2000 in March. What a huge difference it has made. First of all, the system is about one fourth the size of our old “crypt” system. Now that it is in, we have what seems like a constant flow of hot water (our ten year old likes long showers). The water also seems to flow at a much stronger rate than the old system. Additionally, we no longer feel or even hear the heat and hot water system shaking the house as they turn on and off. It has taken some time to get used to not hearing the system from our living room. We no longer have to adjust the television sound when the heat turns on.
The difference between the old boiler and the EK-1 is night and day.
Mike P., Chatham, MA
It has been 13 months since we had our Energy Kinetics EK-1 boiler and external hot water tank installed in my 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 1800 square feet home. The previous boiler was a 37 year old ..... that functioned adequately to heat the home, but failed to provide sufficient hot water to take a bath or run both showers simultaneously. Furthermore, it was not very efficient with its heating oil consumption, and made noticeable noise even in the middle of summer.
The difference between the old boiler and the EK-1 is night and day. The EK-1 is quiet, provides seemingly unlimited hot water, and is far more efficient. Using the old boiler I typically received deliveries of approximately 680 gallons of heating oil. In the past year I have received only 475 gallons of heating oil. This is a savings of about 31% (205 gallons saved X $2.40 / gallon = $492).
The product has always been excellent; I've been installing System 2000 since 1980!

The 38.9% saving is remarkable!
James N. , Lexington Park, MD
The System 2000 furnace, boiler and hot water heater was the real surprise. For the 2006 season, the System 2000 saved 406.6 gallons of heating oil over the average yearly consumption of 1045 gallon/season for the years 1998 through 2005 for the old furnace. The 38.9% saving is remarkable considering the 406.6 gallon savings at the current price of $2.599/gallon translates into a yearly savings of $1056.75! And oil prices are expected to rise. At this rate, the System 2000 will pay for itself in 5 years or less.
