Have questions about boiler replacement services or about getting a new boiler? We have answers.
A boiler keeps your home warm by heating water and then sending the water or steam through pipes to the rest of your home. The heat comes out of steam radiators or baseboard radiators. In homes with a radiant heating system, the heat comes from coils on the floor or in the walls.
Boilers can use a variety of sources of fuel, including heating oil, propane, natural gas and electricity. Depending on how old a boiler is, it can have an energy efficiency rating anywhere from 50 to 90%.
Boilers are not any more dangerous than any other type of heating system. If a boiler is not maintained or cared for, there is the chance that something can go wrong with it, but the odds of pressure building up in a boiler and ultimately leading to a big explosion are incredibly low.
If you notice anything strange going on with your boiler, your best bet is to call in a certified technician to take a look at it. Reasons to get your boiler checked out include a loud or unusual sound coming from it, a strange odor or the presence of soot around the boiler.
A boiler heats water to keep your home warm, but it is not the same thing as a water heater. Using a boiler as your home’s heating system does not mean you do not also need a separate water heater. The only thing a water heater does is heat water for use in your home, such as for the laundry, dishwasher or shower.
Several types of water heater exist, including conventional models with a tank to hold the heated water and “heat on-demand,” or tankless, models, which do not have a tank. A water heater can be powered by heating oil, gas or electricity.
The cost of replacing a boiler in Southern Maryland can vary considerably based on a few factors. The type of boiler you choose will influence the overall price of replacement, for instance. The complexity of the installation also affects the cost. If you are replacing a different type of heating system with a boiler, it might cost more for the installation compared to if you were replacing an older boiler with a new model.
