Boilers work by heating water or producing steam that is then used to heat a home via radiators or radiant floor systems where it gives off its heat to warm the air.
As the water or steam cools it travels back to your boiler where it’s reheated and sent back out to continue heating your home.
Modern hydronics technology enables heat to be delivered precisely when and where it is needed meeting the exact comfort requirements of its owner. Some may be as simple as a tank-type water heater connected to a loop of flexible plastic tubing for warming a bathroom floor called in floor heating. Others may use two or more boilers operated in stages, releasing their heat through an assortment of heat emitters.
The same boilers may also provide the building’s domestic hot water. They might even heat the swimming pool, or melt snow as it falls on the driveway. Well- designed and properly installed hydronic systems provide unsurpassed comfort and fuel efficiency for the life of the building. These units need to be serviced annually for preventative maintenance.
