With the upcoming change of season, many consumers are thinking about the type of units they want to install in their homes or workspaces for heat. There are a few choices within the current market. One popular choice is a boiler heating system. A boiler is one of the oldest and most frequently used method for heating homes and commercial spaces. A boiler uses hot water which it converts into steam and forces into radiators which radiate heat into designated rooms. Each radiator can be controlled with the attached dial-knob usually found at its bottom.
Orlando Refrigeration, Inc. is well-equipped to install or repair boilers of any make or model, ranging from antique systems to modern-day, high-efficiency units. We have the skills and know-how to handle any situation, both large and small. If you are considering installing a boiler in your home or commercial space, here are some unique advantages to having a boiler heat your space:
1. Energy Efficient
The boiler does not use much electricity and usually goes hand-in-hand with your water bill. A boiler system can be hooked up to a local water supply or well system.
The steam heat that the boiler produces creates an evenly distributed pleasant heat that is felt throughout the home. Unlike conventional heaters which force drafty air through ventilators, steam heat is much more consistent and noticeably less drying. If you ever notice that you get very dry sinuses during the winter months, this could be due to the dry heat that is being forced through the ventilators in your home or place of work using a conventional heater. A boiler uses moisture to heat the room, alleviating this problem. Simply put, the humidity level in the home is much higher when using a boiler system, whereas a dry-air furnace system will produce very low humidity in the space. Lastly, it is a very quiet method of heating the home, as it does not involve fans, air ducts, pilots and blowers.
With proper care and maintenance, a boiler can last years without needing much repair. At Orlando Refrigeration, Inc., we are able to effectively inspect a pre-existing boiler to determine if it needs any maintenance in order to avoid any unexpected emergencies.
4. High-Quality Air
The air produced from the steam is of higher quality and more comfortable for humans to breathe in. The air produced by a boiler has less allergens due to the fact that air is not being blown throughout the home.
