Expert Boiler Installation & Service by Your Premier HVAC Company
Given how a quarter of the energy used in your home is spent on heating, you’ll want to make smart decisions about your home’s boiler system. Is your existing unit already old or failing? Boiler maintenance is a must if you hope to have your boiler run efficiently at all times. Too often, repairs become necessary when regular maintenance has been neglected.
Perhaps it’s time to invest in a boiler that comes with built-in energy efficiency and can ensure more reliable, longer-lasting performance. The area’s trusted provider of high-quality HVAC service, Askwel Solutions, can help you with this.
Types of Residential Boilers
While the primary purpose of all boilers is to transfer heat from gas, oil or electricity to water, different types of boilers work differently and differ in their advantages and disadvantages.
Hot Water Boilers
Hot water boilers don’t actually boil water. They typically only heat it to between 140-185°F and then distribute it through the building. These boilers typically circulate the heated water through the heating system with the help of an electrical pump. The heated water can be distributed through radiant heat systems embedded in the flooring or walls.
Other boilers heat water to (or past) the boiling point, and then distribute the resulting steam through the heating system. Because heating water to steam increases the pressure of the steam, steam boilers can typically circulate water without a pump. Some boilers, known as combi boilers, can also be used to provide hot water for bathing and cooking.
Buying a Boiler
After equipment and installation, you can expect to spend $3,000 to $7,000 (or more) on your next boiler. Your annual operating costs over the 20-year life of that boiler will likely dwarf your initial investment.
Askwel Solutions is in the business of helping people choose the right boiler. We can help you make the decision that keeps your home warm and your money in your pocket.
Choosing a reputable HVAC contractor to install your new boiler can be as important as the boiler itself. You should request quotes from at least three heating contractors to ensure that you receive a range of bids.
