What You Need to Know about Boilers
Using natural gas, oil, propane or solid fuels, a boiler produces hot water or steam which goes through pipes to heat-radiating devices in your home. In the United States, most homes are either heated with boilers or furnaces. The process of heating your home with boilers is called hydronics.
There are two types of boilers – one providing hot water and the other steam. The first kind of boilers distribute hot water via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems or they heat air via a coil. The latter type distributes steam via pipes to steam radiators. It is important to note that steam boilers work at higher temperatures than hot water boilers, so they are less efficient solutions for heating your home. On the other hand, there are also high-efficiency steam models nowadays, but they naturally come at a higher price.
Hydronic systems come with a wide range of benefits that other home comfort systems simply cannot provide. When it comes to natural materials that are used for conducting heat, water is by far the superior option as its temperature changes can be precisely controlled and measured, so there is less overshooting of thermostat settings and also less heat waste. Modern boilers, which are compact and feature advanced heat-transfer technology, high-efficiency burners, and electronic controls, are a whopping 30-40 percent more efficient than models produced and installed just one decade ago.
A central boiler’s efficiency is measured by the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), a thermal efficiency measure that shows how efficient the appliance is during the course of a typical year of operations. Manufacturers are now required to display AFUE so that buyers could compare the heating efficiencies of the models they are interested in and choose the best fit for their needs.
How We Can Help
If your boiler is old, not efficient or simply too big for your household, you should consider replacing it with a newer, high-efficiency model. Households with old coal burners that run on oil or gas should definitely consider getting a new boiler. We can also maintain and service your existing boiler to ensure its longevity and efficiency.
It is important to hire a professional to service your boiler system, as it can be hazardous for someone who is inexperienced. This including burns, flooding your home, and other hazards associated with servicing these systems.
