How Do Boilers Work?
Boilers don’t actually boil water! But they do heat water, which, in turn, heats your home. Most new boilers send hot water through pipes to the radiators in your home to provide warmth. Older boilers do the same thing, but often with steam instead of water.
Boilers can be powered by three different kinds of fuel: natural gas, propane, or oil. In each case, the fuel ignites a flame that heats the water inside the boiler. Electric-powered boilers are also available.
Natural Gas Boilers
Natural gas is a popular boiler fuel, due to its availability and low cost. As a matter of fact, many homeowners are opting to convert their oil boilers to gas. Give us a call at 302-629-3001302-629-3001 to find out if oil-to-gas conversion is right for you.
Propane boilers operate nearly identically to natural gas boilers. Propane is a good choice for homes located far from natural gas utilities because it is easy to transport. Peninsula offers a propane delivery service in the Delaware and Maryland area.
Oil-fired boilers send oil through a combustion chamber that then feeds into the burner, which heats the water. Oil boilers are not widely used outside of the northeastern United States, and even there, many homeowners are choosing to switch from oil to gas. Give us a call at 302-629-3001302-629-3001 to find out if oil-to-gas conversion in Delaware is right for you.
Electricity, of course, fuels the heating element in an electric boiler. Electric boilers are often chosen for their reliability, easy maintenance, and smaller footprint—i.e. their relatively compact size.
How Long Will My Boiler Last?
A properly maintained and serviced new boiler should last upwards of 25 years. There are some older boilers out there that are still going strong after 30 or more years. The key to optimizing your boiler’s lifecycle is maintenance.
Regular do-it-yourself and professional maintenance will keep your boiler in good form and alert you to any repairs that need to be done BEFORE they become bigger problems.
Are Boilers Cost-Effective?
The cost-effectiveness of your boiler depends on your home’s needs and any limitations on your property, like fuel line access. Peninsula can help you determine which style and model of new boiler is the most cost-effective and energy-efficient for your particular situation.
Keep in mind that proper insulation and weatherproofing will help save you money on your energy bills no matter what kind of boiler you have!
