Living in an area where the winter lasts for six months or longer, a boiler is the right choice for heating.
The boiler heats water and sends it through a bunch of pipes.
The benefit is that water heats up more rapidly and retains heat longer than air. This means the boiler can heat the home with less effort. It also avoids drafts and the spread of air contaminants. There is no ductwork and therefore less energy waste than with a forced air furnace. A boiler is virtually silent. The system uses very few moving parts and requires only annual maintenance. With regular upkeep from a professional HVAC contractor, a boiler can be expected to outlast most other styles of heating systems. Quite often, a boiler only needs to be replaced when the manufacturer stops producing replacement parts. Boilers also offer rewarding versatility. The pipes can be linked to streamlined radiators, baseboard heaters or a radiant floor system. There is the possibility of relying on the boiler for the household hot water needs. The boiler can be used for towel warmers, to heat a swimming pool or hot tub and there’s even snow melt systems for driveway. There are boilers available to accomodate a single-family residence as well as an industrial space. Another reward is that boilers are easy to set up for zone control. It’s simple to take customized control over each room. Personalizing settings allows for greater energy savings. With independent control units, the homeowner can adjust the temperature in each room to suit preferences and needs. There’s no reason to heat unoccupied rooms.With recent industry advancements, modern boilers are able to adapt capacity to meet changing demands and provide exceptional energy efficiency.
