Boilers are among the best options for getting quality and energy-efficient heat for your home. Although boilers rarely “boil” anything any more (the earliest models boiled water to create steam, which was where they got their name), they have advanced with the times to remain popular across the country for keeping back the winter weather.

An extended lifespan
At the moment, there are few heaters that can match a boiler for longevity. If you take care of the few repair needs that will crop up, and enroll in a regular maintenance program that will keep your heating system operating in top shape, you can expect a boiler to last for many years. Most boilers exceed their estimated lifespan—provided they receive excellent, professional care.
It’s something that people often don’t consider, but getting warmth from a forced-air system like a furnace can have a potentially negative effect on air quality. Ductwork naturally picks up dust and dirt, which a furnace’s fans will then blow into your home. But boilers do not use air or any kind of ducts to provide heat. They use hydronic power—hot water circulated through pipes to end points like floorboards and radiators—to provide warmth. You can expect cleaner air (which is especially important if there are people in your house with allergies) from your new boiler.
Keep in mind that boilers may not be perfect for every home. It’s always best to seek the advice of HVAC professional before you make a choice about a new home heating system. The professionals will calculate how much heat your home needs and find the right system at the right size to give you quality warmth throughout the winter.
