How Does Boiler Heating Work?
A boiler system doesn’t rely on distributing air to heat the home. Rather, it makes use of an extensive pipe network. This network is installed in the sub–floor of each room in the home that is to receive heat. Occasionally, the pipes will terminate in a radiator or baseboard heater. While the system is operating, it pumps hot water throughout the pipes. As the water flows through the pipes, the heat from it radiates through the floor and into the room.
Advantages of Boiler Heating
There are a myriad of different advantages associated with boiler heating. They’re quite a bit more energy efficient than standard forced air systems. Water makes a much better thermal medium than air does. It warms up faster, and retains heat for longer. Boilers do not have to deal with duct leaks, which have been estimated to be the cause of up to 30% of the average forced air system’s output.
Boilers have a reputation for added comfort, as well as energy efficiency. When warm air flows into a room, it will naturally float to the ceiling and sink as it cools. This creates uncomfortable hot and cold spots throughout the house. Boilers heat rooms from the bottom up, which keeps things much more even and comfortable.
Forced air systems can also promote illness by circulating airborne contaminants throughout the house. This can cause allergy attacks, flu, and all kinds of other ailments. A boiler system doesn’t circulate air, which means less exposure to airborne contaminants.
