In the past, boiler systems were relatively simple devices. They stored water and heated it before it was distributed throughout a building. Now, there are multiple types of boiler systems on the market.
If you are looking for a new boiler or are unsure about which type of boiler you have, the video posted below can help.
If you have a relatively new boiler or are looking at boilers to purchase, you may have seen quite a few condensing boilers. These high-efficiency systems are designed to preserve energy by not wasting heat. They condense the steam created by heating water to ensure they keep as much of the energy they use to heat it as possible. If you’re looking for a great way to save money after installing your new boiler system, you likely want a condensing system.
If you want to use your boiler to heat your home via a radiant heating system and to provide hot water on tap, you can use a combination boiler to do so. Note that many radiant heating systems use relatively cool water, so you’ll have to ensure your radiant system has mixing valves in order to work with a combination boiler. A professional plumber can help you find the right boiler for your particular situation.
