High-End Boilers for Optimum Home Heating
Boilers Offer Unbeatable Heating and Humidifying Advantages
A boiler, different from a furnace, is a central heating unit that uses steam or hot water instead of air to heat your home. All boilers are either electric or fueled by oil or gas. Steam boilers turn water into steam and, using gravity and pressure, heat the home. A hot water boiler system simply heats water, which is circulated through piping to provide heat. Boilers allow you to heat rooms individually for incredible energy efficiency and perfect home heating.
Residential boilers follow similar principles to their heavy duty HVAC commercial boiler counterparts. Residential boiler heating can include hot water boilers, steam boilers, gas fired boilers, oil fired boilers, stainless steel, or cast iron. To choose the perfect boiler for your home heating, consider these questions when speaking with an expert boiler technician at Iceberg’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning:
- Should my boiler use oil or gas? What are the benefits to each?
- Should my boiler use water or steam?
- Which type of boiler is best for my home: stainless steel or cast iron?
- Should my boiler use inside air or outside air?
- How efficient should my boiler be?
- What is the right size for my home boiler?
There are several things that you need to consider when deciding whether to keep an existing boiler or install a new one, but the main factor is the condition of the metal the boiler is made of. Many households are tempted to stretch the life of their boiler beyond the typical lifespan. If you notice rust or damage to the area around the boiler, consider calling professionals to have them evaluate your boiler.

- What is the difference between a boiler and a furnace?
This is a question we get all the time. A furnace heats air, and then a blower motor moves the warmed air into the home's duct system to heat the home. A boiler heats water, which then flows through a collection of pipes in the home to generate heat.
- What is a Central Boiler outdoor furnace?
If you’re curious about what exactly a Central Boiler outdoor furnace is, we can help. A Central Boiler outdoor furnace burns wood to heat water that is then moved through through pipes. Water will then transfer its heat to heat the home.
