Here are some of the types of boilers we service:

Combi Boilers- These boilers can act as bother your domestic water heater and space heating. The benefits of these water heater units are that they are efficient and do not need a storage tank. These tankless water heater systems can heat your domestic water on demand while providing radiant heating for the home.

Tankless Boilers- Similar to a combi boiler, but instead of heating potable domestic water and radiant heating, it only does the radiant heat side of water heating in the home. Great for saving space and efficiency.

Tank Boilers- Like a standard water heater, they are not used for potable domestic water. These units still heat and distribute hot water through the home via pipes in a radiant system. These are not as common as they used to be. Typically you can see an air-to-water heat pumps with an attached hot water storage tank to act as a thermal battery.

Can a boiler be a water heater too?

There are units known as combi boilers that can simultaneously work as water heaters and furnaces. Otherwise, a boiler system can have an external water tank, also known as an indirect water heater, to heat water outside the boiler that heats air for your home. A boiler will also heat water much more rapidly than a regular water heater, since it uses a series of copper pipes to turn water into steam for heating then house. Because boilers use water for heating, they can be used as water heaters as well.

Is there a difference between a boiler and furnace?

A boiler will heat your home using the steam from water that it brings to a boiling point, pumping it through all the pipes to heat your home correctly. A furnace uses hot air to heat your home, with a motor that blows the air through the furnace where it heats, and then through the ductwork and the vents within the home. While boilers can work as furnaces and water heaters, furnaces can not provide hot water since they use only air and gas or electricity.

How often should maintenance be done on a boiler?

Annual maintenance is a good idea for most units. Professional inspections and tune-ups can help catch minor fixes before they become costly. It is also essential to ensure your system is functioning safely since it can use hazardous materials that can make it dangerous for yourself and your family if something goes wrong. It is always a good idea to check your system after a long period of little use, just before the heating season begins.
