Aido Will Install or Repair Your Boiler
Winters in Guelph are nothing to be casual about. It gets cold! And when it gets cold, a boiler can be the strongest and most economical option for heating your family’s home. It’s important to understand the differences between boilers when choosing the right boiler for your home.
A boiler is called a central heating system. That’s because the heat is generated in one part of the house to be spread out throughout the home. Unlike a furnace, there’s a bit of a lag between the time you turn your boiler on and the time it begins producing heat through your home.
All boilers are either condensing or non-condensing and most boilers produce steam or hot water using natural gas or heating oil. A condensing boiler is extremely energy efficient because they can operate at low temperatures but disperse lots of heat. It uses waste heat to preheat the water entering the boiler and concentrates water vapor produced in the heating process.
The more energy efficient boiler you purchase, the higher the price, however there will be a lower cost of operating and your boiler can typically last up to 30 years.
Types of Boilers
Gas Boilers - Fueled by either natural gas or propane, these boilers are highly efficient for heating homes in climates like ours. Natural gas isn’t available everywhere and some users may pay higher prices.
Oil Boilers - When there isn’t access to natural gas, these are the types of boilers that are most commonly seen. You’ll need oil delivered and your costs of operating will fluctuate with the cost of oil.
Electric Boilers - These are highly efficient boilers but they are not cheap to operate because of the cost of electricity.
Types of Heat
Steam Radiators - This is common in older homes. Steam heat is one of the oldest heating technologies and can still provide consistent, sufficient heat throughout a harsh winter.
Hot Water Radiators - Common in most newer homes with boilers, hot water radiators can provide baseboard or upright heat. They can reduce your energy consumption because they allow you to control the temperature of each floor or a large space.
Radiant Floor Heating - The boiler heats water which is sent into tubes underneath the flooring. This is more efficient than baseboard heating but can be expensive to install.
