There are many devices required to run your home. During the summer you may need an air conditioner or a heat pump. During the winter, most homeowners require a furnace or air handler. Then there are washer and dryers, stoves, refrigerators…the list seems to never end.
But a thing homeowners absolutely know is they need hot water. Most homes have a water heater – or in some homes a boiler is used to warm the water. Have you noticed which heating system your home utilizes to heat your water? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to help explain the difference between the two heating systems.
A water heater is a large tank that, you guessed it, heats water. The heat is either created by burning gas or by utilizing electricity. A traditional water heater will heat the water and then store it at that temperature until the water is used, either for a warm shower, the dishwasher, or any other hot water need. As the hot water is used, fresh cold water enters in the bottom of the tank so it can also be warmed for use across 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 different type of boiler can heat the water until it turns into steam. The steam can heat the water for the home but can also be dispersed throughout the home and provide heat through radiators. A boiler can also heat the air in a forced air heating system, or heat the floor in a radiant heating system. Boilers are very flexible heating systems that provide great comfort during the winter season. Newer boilers are also very energy efficient.
