Boilers are an extremely effective way to heat a home. Not only are they reliable systems that can replace furnaces, heat pumps, and other heating options, but they’re far more energy-efficient than standard forced-air heating systems. When your home is heated with a boiler, the heat disperses evenly for comfortable temperatures throughout your home.
HOW DOES A BOILER SYSTEM WORK?
Boilers are essentially water heaters used to heat and warm an interior. Boiler systems for home heating work by heating water and then distributing it throughout the home via radiators or radiant floor systems. Once the water has cooled, it moves back to the boiler, where it is reheated and then recirculated.
Most home boiler systems use heating oil or natural gas as fuel for the heating process. Boiler systems differ from furnaces because they heat using hot water while furnaces use hot air. In order to circulate the hot water throughout the home, boilers require a pump in addition to a radiator and/or pipe system.
Boilers are a wonderful way to heat your home because they are extremely energy efficient. Since the hot water generated by the boiler moves through pipes, you don’t need ductwork to heat your home. However, in the hot summer months, a boiler cannot help cool you down. You’ll need to look into central air conditioning, or another ductless cooling system to help keep your house cool in the summer.
BENEFITS OF BOILER HEATING SYSTEMS
If you think boilers are old-fashioned, think again. Boilers are an energy-efficient and reliable heating choice for your home. Check out some of the other neat benefits of boiler heating systems:
LOWER HEATING COSTS
Very little fuel is needed to heat boiler systems, making them extremely environmentally friendly. Additionally, most boilers use natural gas as fuel, which is clean burning and doesn’t pollute outdoor air or indoor air. Ultimately, because of the way boilers save on natural resources, you’ll save money on your monthly heating bills with a boiler system.
FEWER COLD SPOTS
With boiler heating, you’ll find that your home maintains a more even temperature and is more comfortable to live in. Radiators spread heat to each room effectively and without much noise. With radiators in each room, you’ll notice consistent heating throughout the house. And without ductwork, the heat can spread without being prevented from reaching particular rooms because of blocked air ducts. If a room is particularly cold, it’s most likely an issue with that particular radiator and not the boiler system itself.
LOW MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR REQUIREMENTS
Boiler heating systems are very effective and require few repairs. Part of this is because boiler systems don’t encourage the growth of mold or mildew. Although boilers heat water to warm your home, moisture is not added to the air unless you incorporate a humidifier into your home’s comfort system.
MORE EFFECTIVE HEATING
You’ll find that boiler heating is immediate and even. When you turn your thermostat up or down, you’ll feel the effects almost immediately. And with the benefit of user-friendly zoning capabilities, you can establish heating patterns and heat your home accordingly. This will ultimately save you on utility costs and reduce energy consumption. Ultimately, boiler heating is immediate, effective, and creates a super comfortable atmosphere.
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR BOILER STOPS WORKING
While most boilers work well and don’t need a lot of maintenance, issues do occur from time to time. If your boiler has stopped working and/or won’t produce heat, check the circuit breaker or fuse first. A lack of power may be an issue.
Sometimes, the water level of your boiler can get low as well, and this can cause problems. Other common issues with boilers include a malfunctioning thermostat, a malfunctioning pilot light (or a pilot light that has gone out), a problem with the burner ignition, or leaks around the boiler pump or elsewhere.
If any of these issues occur, do not hesitate to call Poston Brothers. We’ll send one of our technicians out right away to diagnose your boiler’s issues and offer a solution.
