Boilers in Orem
When you think of a home heating system, the first thing to come to mind is probably a forced air system. While forced air systems are by far the most common across the country, they are not the only option for home heating. Boilers have a number of unique advantages to offer over forced air systems.

How Boilers Work
Boilers operate by circulating hot water throughout the house. A pipe network is installed in the walls and/or floor of each room in the house. The network is connected to the boiler, which heats water before circulating it throughout the house. As the water flows through the pipes, the heat radiates through the walls and floor and into the room. The heat is transmitted through solid objects, allowing it to stay near the floor of the room where people can benefit from it.
The Advantages of Boiler Systems
There are a wide variety of advantages to using a boiler system in your home. First, you need to understand some of the disadvantages of forced air systems. Duct leaks are quite common in homes across the country, something that forced air systems fall victim to on a regular basis. The US Department of Energy has estimated that 30% of a forced air system’s output is lost to duct leaks. Boiler systems don’t use ducts, and therefore aren’t susceptible to a loss of output. They deliver almost 100% of their output to their intended destinations.
Boilers can also improve your indoor air quality. Forced air heating systems tend to circulate contaminants that collect in the ducts over time. This makes it more likely for you to get sick. Boilers don’t use air to circulate heat, which means you can benefit from them without having to worry about exposure to germs and other contaminants.
We Install, Repair, and Maintain Boilers Throughout Orem
Installing a boiler is a more complex process than other home heating systems. This is because, while most homes are outfitted with ducts, very few already have the pipe networks required for a boiler system to work. You’re going to want to make sure that you trust a professional to handle your boiler installation for you. Call us, and we’ll give your boiler the best possible start to keeping your home warm.
Boilers are known for their sturdiness, but they still have problems from time to time. When your boiler starts acting strange, you’re going to want to call for repairs as soon as possible. The sooner we can repair your boiler, the more damage we can prevent. We also offer professional maintenance services, in order to both prevent problems and make sure that your boiler is in the best possible condition.
