Choosing Between Different Types of Boilers for Your Home

Jan 23 ,2014

Choose best boilers for your home

BoilersThere are several different kinds of boilers available, of course, including those powered by electricity, steam or gas. If the time has come that you need a boiler replacement, you should take your time and consider all of your options. After all, the old boiler was probably there for many years and your heating needs may be a great deal different than when it was first installed. For instance, your children may have moves out of your home or you may have expanded your family. The experts with Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning can come to your home, perform a detailed analysis of your heating needs, and help you determine the type of system that is best for you.

Important Considerations to Keep in Mind

  • The size of your home – This will have a direct bearing on the type of boiler you’ll ultimately purchase. Boilers designed for larger homes won’t work in smaller ones, because they will use much more fuel or energy than their smaller counterparts and they won’t really make you that much more comfortable. Conversely, a boiler that is too small won’t keep you warm enough. It will also have to work too hard, and as a result your energy bills will be higher than they should be.
  • Efficiency – Today’s boilers are a great deal more energy efficient than older models, so keep this in mind when buying a new one. Check the rating to make sure you make the best decision possible.
  • Warranty – It’s typical for most manufacturers of boilers to put an 8-10 year limited warranty on major components within the unit. Check this carefully before picking your new unit.
