Boilers/Tankless Boilers

Boilers and furnaces are the two most frequently used heating systems across the United States, each offering unique advantages and potential drawbacks. While the choice between the two systems largely depends on your specific needs and circumstances, understanding their intricacies can present a challenge. That’s where the professional HVAC contractors at KNZ Heating & Cooling come in. With our vast experience and industry knowledge, we are ideally positioned to help you navigate these options, ensuring you make the right decision for your comfort and budget.

What is a Boiler, and How Does it Work?

Boilers are distinct from furnaces in multiple ways. Unlike furnaces, which heat air and distribute it throughout the home, boilers heat water that is subsequently transformed into steam or hot water. This steam or hot water then travels through pipes to radiators or radiant floor systems, effectively warming your home.

A  tankless boiler system or tankless radiant heating eliminates the need for a storage tank. Instead, water is heated directly as needed.

Although boilers were once more common in homes, they have remained popular with many homeowners due to their unique benefits.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Boiler Heating Systems

Furnaces and boilers each offer several advantages and disadvantages. Hot water boilers can be small, compact, and energy efficient. The right heating system for you will depend on your needs, the size and layout of the space you’re heating, and your budget. Some of the top advantages of boiler heating systems include:

  • Air Quality: Boilers provide heat without distributing allergens or dust throughout the home, resulting in improved air quality.
  • Reduced Noise: Because a boiler does not force air through the home like a furnace does, it is usually much quieter.
  • Energy Efficiency: Boilers typically have a higher energy efficiency rating compared to other heating systems.

Some disadvantages of boilers to consider are:

  • Installation Cost: The upfront cost of installing a boiler can be significant.
  • Maintenance Costs: Regular maintenance is required to keep a boiler operating efficiently and safely.
  • Repair Issues and Damage: Because a boiler system requires water, it is more prone to freezing in extreme temperatures or if the power is out for an extended period of time. Plus, a leak in a radiant heating system can be more difficult and costly to repair.

It’s important to remember that the choice of heating system largely depends on individual needs and circumstances. Working with an experienced HVAC contractor is often the best way to find the right system for you.
