There are many systems you need to run your home. During the summer you may need an air conditioner or a heat pump. During the cold months, most homeowners require a furnace or air handler. Then you include washer and dryers, stoves, refrigerators…the list seems to never end.
But one thing homeowners certainly know is they need hot water. Most people have a water heater – or in some homes a boiler is used to heat up the water. Do you know which heating system your home utilizes 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 large 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 dishwasher, 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 heated for use around your home.
A boiler, alternatively, can heat water that is used to bring heat to the home and give you hot water. Another 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 dispersed throughout the home and create warmth 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 versatile heating systems that give you great comfort during the winter season. Today’s boilers are also very energy efficient.
