What Is a Boiler & What Are the Advantages?
A boiler is different than a hot water heater in that rather than just heating water, it actually boils water in order to create steam. The vaporized water can the be used for a variety of purposes – unlike water in a hot water heater, which is simply used at hot water for bathing purposes, washing dishes and clothes, etc.). For example, steam from the boiler can be transported to a variety of different systems, such as heating air for a central air system, or heating the floors in a radiant heating system. It can even be used to heat water. As such, a boiler can act as an all-in-one heating system and water heater, eliminating the need for a water heater or furnace.
Another advantage of boilers is that they can be very energy efficient and very green. For example, while older boilers relied on oil or coal to produce steam – both non-renewable resources – newer boilers can use natural gas or other sources of fuel and are much more energy-efficient than are older models.
