How Is a Boiler Different?

Furnaces, heat pumps, and boilers are very much alike in that they all will heat your Wasilla, AK, home. One of their biggest differences lies in how they heat your home. A boiler generates hot water or steam and then utilizes that to heat your home.

The hot water is typically distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor heating systems, while its steam is distributed by way of pipes to steam radiators throughout your home. Instead of delivering this heating directly into the air, your boiler system’s heat warms objects in your home, like your floors, furniture, and walls. These items, in turn, then radiate that warmth to heat your home.

Most are sealed systems. This means they reuse the water or steam in their systems—they don’t waste it. The recirculation and reuse process is one of the factors that makes these HVAC systems so efficient. They also use very little energy to reheat the returning water since it still contains heat.

What Are the Advantages of a Boiler?

If you’re considering installing or retrofitting a boiler in your Wasilla, AK, home, here are a few advantages to help you with your decision:

  • They cost less to operate. They are inherently so efficient in their operation, running them keeps their costs pretty low. Their up-front costs may be a little more than other heating choices, but their annual energy costs more than compensate for that, still giving them an edge here.
  • They are a much cleaner form of heating. Since the heat emanates from the pipes or radiator into the existing air, there’s no new air being blown into your home. In contrast to forced-air systems, this means no new pathogens or allergens are introduced into your home’s air. This is better for your indoor air quality (IAQ).
  • Boilers operate quietly. Forced-air systems tend to be noisier with their air being blown through ductwork and out via vents.
  • Environmentally friendly. Since boilers are able to burn recycled and sustainable fuels like biodiesel, they’re becoming more popular with homeowners who prefer environmentally friendly options.

“The scheduled repair was to crimp a pipe connection that was missed during the installation after the tech called for the tool and it was delivered. He got the pipes joined together the he opened all the valves flooding the top floor and I saw him and said he can’t open the valves for upstairs because there’s nothing there so we had rain all the way to the first floor from the fourth floor, so far we only have damage on one wall on the first floor”

“I called at 8:30 a.m., and by 12:30, I had a very knowledgeable technician looking at my boiler system. He found 2 things that needed to be fixed, showed them to me, then fixed them with new parts on the spot! The cost was reasonable. I am very happy with the fast and efficient repair of my furnace. Thank you so much! I plan to continue with this company if I have any boiler issues in the future.  A+”
