There are many different ways that homes can enjoy warmth through the winters here in Montgomery County. The furnace is the most common, but that doesn’t mean that it will necessarily always be the right choice for a house. If you are looking to have a heating system installed, we recommend that you consider a gas-powered boiler. Boilers remain a popular alternative to forced-air heating systems like furnaces, and for some excellent reasons. We’ve listed a few below:
- Inexpensive operation: Water is a much better heat transference medium than air, so a boiler is more efficient at heating up a home than a furnace. You can expect to use less energy over the winter thanks to using a gas boiler.
- Even heating: When a furnace sends heat into a room, the heated air blows out into the space and gathers at the ceiling—and that means it can take a while before heating spreads throughout the room. But boilers send heat out in waves from radiators and baseboard heaters, resulting in a fast and even spread of heat.
- Longevity: Boilers don’t have many mechanical moving parts, so they suffer less wear over time than other heating systems. Not only does this mean fewer repairs, but it also means a longer system lifespan. You’ll have more time to enjoy the energy efficiency of your gas boiler.
- Improved indoor air quality: Furnaces often blow dust and debris out of their ductwork and into the air of a house. Since boilers have no ducts at all and radiate heat into a home, they can help to keep the air cleaner. This is a big benefit for households that have allergy and asthma sufferers.
