Types of boilers
Boilers are made in both steam and hot water models. Both provide heat throughout a home by means of either a radiant system that uses a boiler to heat water, or through forced air heating systems.
Steam boilers are kind of like big kettles. They boil water until the steam builds to create enough pressure to push heat to radiators around your home. The heat is emitted into your rooms by air moving across the radiators. The cycle continues after the steam then cools and condenses to water, which then returns to the boiler to be reheated. Steam boilers are typically fueled with natural gas or propane.
Hot water boilers
Like steam boilers, hot water boilers push warmth throughout your home, but with hot water in place of steam. When the water rasies to your desired temperature, it is forced through the radiant system. Gas is often used to power water boilers, however, you will discover oil-fired boilers in New England and the Northeast United States.
Benefits of boilers for home heating
A lot of people love boilers because of their exceptionally quiet operation. In fact, it’s almost impossible to hear a boiler working at all unless there’s a problem with it. They are also known for delivering comfortable and even heat thanks to the design of the system with pipes installed behind the walls or under the floors. Boilers can also be helpful, in non-forced air heating systems, to allergy suffers because they don’t blow air around and spread allergens.
Even though they can be more expensive than furnaces, many people find that boilers are the perfect heating system for them. If you want more information about high-efficiency boilers in Boynton Beach, look to A2Z Air Inc. You can reach us at 561-270-6228 or schedule an appointment with us online.
