How Does a Boiler Work?
Boilers have been around since the 18th century and many homeowners still turn to their traditional heating methods as a way to warm their homes. A boiler essentially uses steam as a means of heat. Once water is heated in the boiler, it’s moved through the copper or PEX tubing of a radiator (whether traditional or modern). Because there is a radiator in each room, you can control the temperature of each one (as opposed to central heating that heats the entire home).
While at one point boilers may have been deemed inefficient, today’s boilers are created with 85%-95% efficiency, which is the same efficiency as a furnace. However, boilers tend to lose less heat than a furnace because there are no ductwork or vents that can absorb it. Boilers are also better for air quality, since they don’t circulate dust, dirt, and other particles through the air. In addition, boilers are very quiet in operation and are small, so they won’t take up much space.
