Unlike forced-air heating systems, boilers use hot water to distribute heat through your home rather than air. There are two basic types of boilers: hot water boilers and steam boilers. Hot water boilers distribute heat by running hot water through specialized pipes. The pipes can distribute heat along a baseboard, through cast iron radiators, or radiant floor systems.
Steam boilers work by heating water to generate steam. This steam is then distributed through a series of pipes to radiators to heat your home. Boilers are available in either oil, gas, or electric models, so you can find a boiler to work with your most preferred and readily available fuel type. We can help you explore the options and find the best boiler for your home. We offer free estimates for new equipment installation and financing options.
If a boiler is leaking, this is typically an indication of something wrong with the equipment. The most common cause of a leaking boiler would be corrosion or faulty water pipes. Corrosion occurs over time with boilers because the boiler is weakened from frequently being exposed to water at different temperatures. It will weaken the pipes and the boiler tank causing leaks.
