What is a boiler?
A boiler is a hydronic system that uses water or steam to heat your home.
In a hot water system, the boiler heats the water and a circulator moves the water through the pipes that lead to baseboard heaters, radiators or radiant tubing to spread the heat throughout the rest of your house. In a steam system, boilers turn the water into steam, which then rises through the pipes to radiators.
One of the advantages to a boiler system is the ability to heat different zones in your home. A boiler system will generally have thermostats in every room, which can set individual temperatures depending on people’s personal preference.
Instead of heating the whole house, you only have to heat the rooms you are using and when you are using them and that can help save on your energy bills.
