Boiler in Your Home?

If your home has a boiler with a few “kinks”, you may want to begin thinking about whether or not it is in your best interest to repair it or begin looking for a new one. Sometimes repairing an old unit is not worth it. You may end up putting a lot of money into a system that doesn’t quite hold up to today’s standards. Depending upon your individual situation it might be a better deal to simply purchase a new one.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you decide to invest in a new boiler, it may not fit perfectly in with your old set-up. Therefore, it is best to have the whole system evaluated prior to making a final decision to ensure that everything is working optimally for you and your home. There are two major decisions to be made with a new boiler: zoning and water-heating.

Zoning:

Zoning your home means that specific areas of your home can be regulated and isolated from others. Therefore, certain areas can be kept warmer or cooler than others. With a new boiler you can make the decision about how you want your home to be zoned, so you can set a temperature depending on the need in that room. For example, if one room has a tendency to be chilly, the thermostat will have hot water come to that area of the house to heat it right back up!

Water-Heating:

The decision that must be made with a new boiler is whether you have a water heater with a tank or a tankless hot water heater. The tankless water heater heats up water based on need and does not maintain a tank full of warm water. This means that you do not heat up water that you do not use. A water heater with a tank can typically hold up to 19 gallons of hot water. These tanks are very heavily insulated to keep that heat locked in.
