What is a Boiler?
A boiler heats your home through the use of hot water. Many people use this term interchangeably with a furnace, but a furnace is a bit different in that it heats a home through warm air, also called forced hot air. The boiler is essentially a vessel for making hot water or steam for heating systems such as radiators, hydronic baseboards or radiant heat, taking its energy from sources such as natural gas, oil, propane or electricity.
Does My Boiler Require Maintenance?
While we recommend letting a professional address any problems with your boiler for safety reasons, there are some tell-tale signs you can assess to determine if your boiler needs work. Look for extreme temperatures rather than consistent temps, as your boiler may be damaged. Be on the lookout, also, for leaks, hissing, sediment accumulation and unusual odors or noise. Our team can come in and assess the situation to see if your unit simply needs a replacement part to get it working again or whether it would benefit you to replace it with a completely new unit that works more efficiently.
What Size Boiler Do I Need?
Finding the right sized heating unit for your home involves taking an accurate measurement of the square footage. A boiler that is too small will not run efficiently and will always be playing catch-up to get the house warm enough, raising your energy bills unnecessarily. A boiler that is too large for your home can also be inefficient not to mention the higher price tag you will pay for a boiler you don’t need. Take the square footage of your house to determine the number of British Thermal Units (BTUs) needed to provide sufficient heat. Our team is available to assess the situation for you and provide a recommendation on the right sized boiler for your particular home and requirements.
