There are many appliances needed to run your home. During the summer you may need an AC system or a heat pump. During the winter, most homeowners require a furnace or air handler. Then you include washer and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators…the list seems endless.
But the thing homeowners certainly know is they require hot water. Most families have a water heater – or in some homes a boiler is used to warm the water. Are you sure 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 water systems.
A water heater is a storage tank that, you guessed it, heats water. The heat is either created by burning gas or by using electricity. A typical water heater will heat the water and then hold 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 flows to where it is needed, fresh cold water enters to the bottom of the tank so it can also be heated for use around your home.
A boiler, alternatively, can heat water that is used to warm the home and heat the water. Another type of boiler can heat the water to the point it turns into steam. The steam heats the water for the home but can also be distributed throughout the home and provide warm comfort through radiators. A boiler is also able to heat the air in a forced air heating system, or heat the floor in a radiant heating system. Boilers are very adaptable heating systems that supply great comfort during the cold winter months. Updated boilers are also very energy efficient.
