What do you get when someone looks at a water heater and says, “What if I used that to heat my home?” You get a boiler!
Okay, we know it likely didn’t go down like that but you catch our drift. Boilers are home heating systems that operate by heating water that provides radiant heat throughout your house. They work differently than furnaces and heat pumps but they are meant to accomplish the same goal: keeping the house nice and toasty warm even when the world outside is icy cold.
While they may use a different approach than furnaces, boilers share other things in common with their forced-air cousins: they all need timely repairs when a problem pops up!
