Types of boilers
Boilers are available in both steam and hot water models. Both provide heat throughout a home through either a radiant system that uses a boiler to heat water, or through forced air heating systems.
Steam boilers are kind of like big teapots. They boil water until the steam builds to create enough pressure to push heat to radiators across your home. The heat is distributed into your rooms by air moving across the radiators. The cycle continues as the steam then cools and condenses to water, which then returns to the boiler to be reheated. Steam boilers are usually powered with natural gas or propane.
Hot water boilers
Like steam boilers, hot water boilers push warmth throughout your home, but with hot water instead of steam. When the water heats up to your desired temperature, it is pushed through the radiant system. Gas is frequently used to power water boilers, however, you will discover oil-fired boilers in New England and the Northeast United States.
Benefits of boilers for home heating
Quite a few people are partial to boilers because of their very quiet operation. In fact, it’s almost impossible to hear a boiler working at all unless it needs repair. They are also known for supplying comfortable and even heat due to the design of the system with pipes installed behind the walls or under the floors. Boilers can also be helpful, in non-forced air heating systems, to allergy suffers because they don’t blow air around and spread allergens.
Even though they can be more costly than furnaces, a lot of people find that boilers are a great heating system for them. If you want more information about high-efficiency boilers in Muldrow, look to Air Service Co.. Give us a call at 918-212-8943 or schedule an appointment with us online.
