Boilers have been around a long time and have wide applications in both commercial and residential space heating. Boilers heat water that can warm your home by delivering it through radiators or in-floor radiant heating systems. Boilers can also be used for domestic hot water instead of storage hot water tanks, and these units that heat both spaces and water are known as combi-boilers.
In homes that are setup with radiators or in-floor heating, there often isn’t ductwork, so a forced air system like a furnace or central heat pump won’t work. But just because your central heating system is powered by a boiler, doesn’t mean it has to be inefficient! Modern boilers achieve AFUE ratings of 95+, which is on par with today’s high efficiency furnaces. If you have an older, conventional boiler, it’s time to upgrade to a more modern condensing one and enjoy a more efficient and cost-effective way to heat your home!
Central boilers take a two-fold approach to keeping you toasty throughout the wet, windy and snowy months of winter: first, they reduce the amount of heated air that escapes during both the on and off cycles of the furnace, which also helps increase energy efficiency. Second, they extract more of the heat that’s contained in the combustion by-products before they’re vented, providing you with maximum coverage and keeping you comfortable without the worry of wastefulness. The bottom line: it’s a win-win situation from winter’s start to finish.
Whether your interest is now piqued in a central boiler or you’re wondering what other ways you can efficiently keep warm this winter, there are plenty of advantages to working with us.
Whatever your needs for home heating with boilers, Walker ClimateCare can help you meet them with both efficiency and budget in mind.
