Boilers for Ottawa Home Heating
Boilers are an alternative way to heat your home by using radiant heating. Water is heated in the boiler using gas and is then pushed through a piping system throughout your home. Here is typically how we see boilers in the home:
- In new homes with radiant floor heating.
- In condos with dual-purpose boilers for heating and hot water.
- In older homes with radiators.
Boiler vs Furnace?
Heating your home with a boiler results in a soothingly warm feel to your entire home that is spread evenly and accurately. Boilers are known for being very quiet and efficient (although our line of Bryant furnaces are also very quiet and efficient). Using a boiler allows for radiant floor heating, giving you a warm step on those chilly winter mornings.
The main drawbacks to a boiler compared to a furnace are that you cannot integrate a humidifier directly with it. It is also a larger initial investment (although see our financing plans). Yet, boilers do deliver on ultimate home comfort and efficiency in the long run.
Whichever way your home comfort system is currently setup, there is always a combination of HVAC equipment that will deliver the full solution of temperature, air quality, and energy efficiency. Trust Stan’s to help you find the perfect mix.
