There are many appliances you need to run your home. During the warmer months you may need an air conditioning system or a heat pump. During the cooler season, most homeowners need a furnace or air handler. Then you have washer and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators…the list seems to go on forever.
But a thing homeowners absolutely know is they require hot water. Most families have a water heater – or in some homes a boiler is used to heat up the water. Have you noticed which heating system your home uses to heat your water? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to help clear up any confusion about the difference between the two water systems.
A water heater is a big tank that, that’s right, heats water. The heat is either created by burning gas or by using electricity. A standard water heater will heat the water and then store 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 is used, fresh cold water enters to the bottom of the tank so it, too, can be heated for use around your home.
A boiler, on the other hand, can heat water that is used to bring heat to the home and give you hot water. A particular 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 distributed throughout the home and give warmth 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 versatile heating systems that supply great comfort during the cold winter months. Today’s boilers are also very energy efficient.
