Heating Systems and Equipment
Furnaces are forced hot air systems which simply means it will blow warm air through your home’s duct system. When your furnace fails, it is more than just an inconvenience, it is a danger depending upon what has failed. Much like a car, furnaces can emit carbon monoxide which we all know is not good for you. Aside from putting your family at risk, a broken furnace can lead to other issues if left unchecked such as frozen pipes and structural damage due to the loss of heat.
Boilers simply heat water which then runs through pipes throughout your home, typically to baseboard radiators or some times the older large radiators. Many older boiler systems use oil as the fuel source with newer boilers using natural gas or propane to increase efficiencies. Boilers systems have come a long way over the years with units small enough to be mounted on a wall. If your boiler fails it presents a number of issues aside from not having heat.
