There are many appliances needed to run your home. During the summer you may need an AC system or a heat pump. During the cooler season, most homeowners use a furnace or air handler. Then there are washer and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators…the list seems endless.
But the thing homeowners certainly know is they want hot water. Most people have a water heater – or in some homes a boiler is used to warm the water. Have you noticed which heating system your home is using to heat your water? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to help clarify the difference between the two heating systems.
A water heater is a big tank that, yes, heats water. The heat is either created by burning gas or by employing electricity. A traditional water heater will heat the water and then keep it at that temperature until the water is used, either for a warm shower, the washer loaded with towels, 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 bring heat to the home and provide hot water. A different type of boiler can heat the water until it actually turns into steam. The steam will heat the water for the home but can also be circulated throughout the home and create heat through radiators. A boiler is also capable of heating the air in a forced air heating system, or heat the floor in a radiant heating system. Boilers are very flexible heating systems that supply great comfort during the winter season. Updated boilers are also very energy efficient.
