What is a Boiler?
Although many people use the term “furnace” when referencing a boiler, these are two different pieces of equipment. While a furnace heats a house through forced hot air, a boiler heats up water to a boiling point to heat a house. This acts as a vessel for delivering heat via hot water or steam for anything from radiators to hydronic baseboards. Boilers can rely on a number of fuel options, including electricity, natural gas, oil or propane, depending on what’s available in your neighborhood. A boiler works in a similar way as a teapot, creating steam as heat when the water boils.
Does My Boiler Require Maintenance?
You may wonder when your boiler needs to be serviced but there are some things you can keep on the lookout for. Obviously, if your home is not getting heat or enough heat for your needs, this is the biggest sign your boiler needs a maintenance call. Other signs include hissing, strange odors, leaks, accumulation of dirt or sediment, and unusual noises. We do not recommend tackling the job of boiler repair yourself. It’s always best to let professionals like us take care of this for your own safety. Plus, you don’t want to inadvertently cause more damage which can lead to higher repair costs. During our inspection, we can determine whether you can get away with a replacement part or two, or whether it would be more cost effective for you to replace the entire unit. The age of your boiler as well as the specific problem afflicting it can contribute to this decision.
What Size Boiler Do I Need?
If you’re installing a boiler in your new home or replacing your old one with a new unit, don’t just assume any size will do. The one you need is very specific to the square footage of the house as well as the British Thermal Units (BTUs) necessary to sufficiently heat the home. If you need help with this task, we would be happy to take the measurements and provide suggestions on which size unit you need. Buying a boiler that is too small for the space is very inefficient because it will never be able to catch up and provide all the heat needed throughout the home. Don’t throw away money with a unit that’s too big either. Aside from the initial outlay of money for a larger-than-needed unit, an oversized boiler produces more heat than you need on a daily basis, increasing your energy bills.
