What is a Boiler?
How Do Boilers Work?
Boilers can be powered by oil, gas, or electric, but the method by which heat is transferred throughout your home is essentially the same. When there is a drop in your home’s temperature that is detected by the thermostat, the boiler turns on to heat up your home to whichever temperature your thermostat is set at. Typical boilers, although a bit of a misnomer because it doesn’t actually boil the water, heats up the water and sends it throughout your home to radiators and water systems.
Some boilers, on the other hand, do heat water past the boiling point to convert the water to steam; these types of boilers are usually less efficient, but function in essentially the same way. Regardless, this allows you to have heat throughout your home and, in most cases, also hot water. Once your home is heated to the set temperature, the boiler turns off until it’s needed again.
Should I Repair or Replace my Boiler?
Sometimes Boiler Repair costs outweigh the price of a new system
Boilers, on average, usually last around 20 years. At this point, it may be time to consider replacing your boiler with a new one, or a different heating system, depending on your needs. If your boiler is nearing the 20 year mark, it may be wise to have someone inspect it. Boilers than exceed this age are more likely to leak, malfunction, and use more energy than is necessary, adding a hefty price tag to your energy bills.
