There are many devices required to run your home. During the warmer months you may need an AC system or a heat pump. During the winter, most homeowners require a furnace or air handler. Then you include washer and dryers, ranges, refrigerators…the list seems to go on forever.
But a thing homeowners definitely know is they require hot water. Most families have a water heater – or in some homes a boiler is used to warm the water. Do you know which heating system your home uses to heat your water? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to help clear up any confusion about the difference between the two water systems.
A water heater is a large tank that, that’s right, heats water. The heat is either produced by burning gas or by using electricity. A traditional water heater will heat the water and then hold it at that temperature until the water is used, either for a warm bath, the washing machine, or any other hot water need. As the hot water flows to where it is needed, fresh cold water enters in the bottom of the tank so it can also be warmed for use across your home.
A boiler, on the other hand, can heat water that is used to heat the home and heat the water. A particular type of boiler can heat the water to the point it turns into steam. The steam can heat the water for the home but can also be dispersed throughout the home and provide warmth through radiators. A boiler is also able to heat the air in a forced air heating system, or heat the floor in a radiant heating system. Boilers are very versatile heating systems that supply great comfort during the cold season. Newer boilers are also very energy efficient.
