Boiler vs. Furnace

There are many advantages to heating your home using a boiler system, whether it is for a new home or as a replacement heating system.

  • Heat is evenly distributed in a room: no drafts or hot and cold spots as with forced air.
  • Minimal movement of allergens and dust particles.
  • Space Saver: no bulky ductwork resulting in reduced square footage in your home.
  • Heating zones allow you to customize the heating level per room.
  • Have warm feet through in-floor radiant heating.
  • Your boiler can be used for snow melting or as a pool heating system as well!
  Boiler (Hydronic System) Forced Hot Air
Efficiency Heat by convection and radiation without the use of system blowers hot air quickly rises to the ceiling and collects there. This effect often results in a hot head and cold feet! It can get worse with high ceilings, poor air circulation and heating systems that supply air at too high a temperature.
Air Quality Radiate heat through a sealed system keeping your home much cleaner and you and your family healthier. Spread pollen, dust and dander throughout the home, by blowing hot air into the rooms.
Operation Tend to be quiet. There is no noise from air moving in ducts, loud blowers or large motors   Use noisy fans to circulate air throughout the house. These blowers can be heard turning on and off as they cycle and distribute the heated air.
