There are many systems needed to run your home. During the warmer months you may need an air conditioner or a heat pump. During the cooler season, most homeowners need a furnace or air handler. Then you include washer and dryers, stoves, refrigerators…the list seems to go on forever.
But the thing homeowners certainly know is they want hot water. Most homes have a water heater – or in some cases a boiler is used to warm the water. Do you know which heating system your home is using to heat your water? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to help explain the difference between the two water heating systems.
A water heater is a storage tank that, yes, heats water. The heat is either created by burning gas or by employing electricity. A typical water heater will heat the water and then store 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 through the bottom of the tank so it can also be heated for use throughout your home.
A boiler, alternatively, can heat water that is used to warm the home and provide hot water. A different type of boiler can heat the water until it turns into steam. The steam will heat the water for the home but can also be distributed throughout the home and provide warm comfort 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 flexible heating systems that provide great comfort during the winter season. Updated boilers are also very energy efficient.
