Why You Should Consider Installing a Boiler This Winter

by bpsupp19274

Forced air heating systems are great for keeping your home warm, which is why they’re by far the most popular heating system in the country. However, a forced air heating system is not ideal for every situation. There are plenty of other home heating systems available on the market, each with their own unique advantages. Let’s take a look at one of those heating alternatives, and why you might want to consider installing one this winter.

Boiler-Based Heating

A boiler heating system uses radiant heating to heat the home, rather than forced air. The boiler heats and distributes water through a pipe network, which is installed in the walls and/or subfloor of each room in the house. Occasionally, terminal devices like iron radiators or baseboard heaters are connected to the network in order to help distribute heat. As the hot water flows through the pipes, it radiates heat out into the room. This is why boilers are referred to as “radiant” heating systems.

The Advantages of Boiler Systems

Before you can fully appreciate the advantages of boiler systems, you first need to understand some of the shortcomings associated with forced air systems. Using air to transport heat is not ideal for a number of reasons. For one, air takes a little while to absorb heat, and then quickly sheds it. For another, once it’s pumped into a room it will rise to the ceiling and sink as it cools. This creates uncomfortable hot and cold spots throughout the room. Water absorbs and holds heat much better than air does, and radiant heating systems keep heat near the floor of the room where it is most needed. These are just a few of the advantages of boiler systems.
