Heating systems are essential during the cold New Cumberland winters, but understanding the different types of boilers available can be confusing. Boilers come in various shapes, sizes and types to meet various needs. Here are the three most common types of boilers.
1. Gas-fired Boilers
These are the most common type of boiler systems, and they use natural gas to heat water. Gas-fired boilers are usually more efficient than other types of boilers and are relatively easy to install and maintain.
They work by burning natural gas to create hot water or steam, which circulates through radiators and pipes to provide heat. This boiler is often the most cost-effective option for homes in areas with access to natural gas.
2. Oil-fired Boilers
Oil-fired boilers work similarly to gas-fired boilers but use oil instead of natural gas. They are often used in rural areas where natural gas is not available and are often cheaper than other types of boilers.
Oil-fired boilers are usually efficient and easy to install, but they require regular maintenance and oil refills to operate properly. In some cases, they may not be as economical to run as gas-fired boilers.
3. Electric Boilers
Electric boilers are becoming increasingly popular because of their efficiency and ease of installation. These systems use electricity to heat water, which is then circulated through radiators and pipes to provide heat.
Electric boilers are usually more expensive to install than other types of boilers and can be more costly to operate. However, they have the advantage of being more environmentally friendly. They also require minimal maintenance and don’t need to be refilled with fuel.
