When you want to heat your home or access hot water in Illinois, you flip on your boiler. One of the most traditional ways of providing heat across the world, boilers typically work by burning fuel and then transferring the hot gases that are produced to the water, therefore “boiling” the water, or raising its temperature significantly.
Today, boilers are available in many different types and range significantly in energy efficiency. At Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning, we have the boiler experience you’re looking for and can help you to determine when it is time to update your boiler to a newer, more efficient model. We can also service your existing boiler to help maintain its longevity.
Here’s how a boiler works: you open the gas valve, and the gases are burned. When the gases are burned, there are two things produced: byproducts and heat. Heat is transferred to the water; how the byproducts are disposed of is the major difference between a conventional and a condensing boiler.
The most typical byproducts that are produced during the process are CO2 and 2H20. In a conventional boiler system, these byproducts are sent into the flue, which is then sent outside of your home. In doing, so, though, heat itself is also lost.
A condensing boiler, on the other hand, recovers the byproducts in order to trap heat that would have been lost otherwise. For this reason, conventional boilers only operate at about 80 percent efficiency, whereas condensing boilers operate at greater than 90 percent efficiency.
Regardless of the type of boiler that your home uses, if you are in need of repairs, our team is here. We perform maintenance and repairs on all brand types, no matter where you bought it. Further, we can perform maintenance on any type of boiler, be it gas, coal, or something else.

We don’t just fix broken boilers or perform routine maintenance; we also install new systems, too.
