How Does a Boiler Work?

So how does this equipment provide heat to your entire home? In simple terms, a boiler heats water and then disperses the heat to the rest of your home through pipes or radiators. How is the water heated in the first place? This typically happens by burning natural gas, which heats up the entire tank. Once the water has been heated, it is sent through the pipes to faucets or is pumped through the house in the form of steam via pipes or radiators.

What Type of Boiler is Right for My Home?

Every boiler has an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The rating is calculated by dividing how efficiently the boiler converts energy (fuel) to heat by the annual fossil fuel energy the boiler uses. An AFUE of 85 percent means that 85 percent of the boiler’s fuel becomes heat while 15 percent escapes through the chimney and other gaps in the home.

Bosch and Buderus Boilers

Boilers can have AFUE ratings of 50 to 95 percent. At Ernst Heating & Cooling, we only sell and install boilers with high AFUE ratings to meet the high demands of our customers. The boilers we offer include:

  • AFUE 95 boilers – The Bosch Greenstar Series includes five different condensing boiler units, all with 95 percent efficiency, quiet operation, and low emissions. All models feature:
    • User-friendly controls that optimize efficiency and fuel consumption
    • Keypad safety lock system to prevent tampering with controls
    • Standby mode for lower electrical consumption
    • Advanced aluminum-silicon heat exchanger

Benefits of a Boiler Heating System

Why do so many Illinois homeowners choose boilers for all of their heating needs? Check out these benefits that boilers can offer you!

  • Clean air. This form of heating doesn’t bring in dust particles or other allergens. Since a boiler warms air that already exists in your home, no new or dirty air is entering the space.
  • Special features. Boilers work well with programmable thermostats, making them user-friendly for any homeowner. You can distinguish various heating zones within your home and preset temperatures for different times of the day.
  • Quiet operation. If you are looking for a quiet heating solution for your home then a boiler is a great option! You should find that all major noise is confined within the boiler itself.
