Reasons to consider a boiler
The principle benefits that a boiler offers are longevity, efficiency, even heating, and better indoor air quality.
- Longevity: Boilers have longer estimated lifespans than most other types of heating systems. The reason for this is that boilers do not have many mechanical parts that will wear down with use. Boilers will require fewer repairs on average (as long as they receive routine maintenance each year) and can often heat two generations of a family within a home.
- Efficiency: Because boilers do not use ductwork to send heat around a home, instead circulating heated water to various terminal points such as radiators and baseboard heaters, they lose less heat and work very efficiently. You can save on your annual heating bills thanks to a boiler.
- Even heating: The heat from baseboard heaters and radiators moves into a room much more evenly than heated air blown out through vents. This radiant energy provides fast and pleasant comfort that many people find far more cozy than the heating from furnaces and heat pumps.
- Indoor air quality: A problem that forced-air heaters that use ductwork encounter is that contamination builds up inside the ducts and ends up getting sent into the air of the living spaces. But since boilers operate through radiant heating, they will not lower indoor air quality. This makes boilers ideal for homes with people who suffer from allergies.
A boiler works well for some homes, but not for all. If a home already has ductwork, it’s usually better to stick with a forced-air system. But for many situations a boiler is a fantastic choice and we offer professional heating services to help you with your new boiler.
