If you have a good, strong boiler heating your home, count yourself among the most comfortable people in the area. Boilers are incredibly popular overseas, but many homes in our area are outfitted with older furnaces that simply do not do a sufficient job of heating a home. A boiler delivers hot water through pipes and under floors to quickly heat up a room and the objects in it, making it one of the most effective and efficient means of home heating.
However, that doesn’t mean a boiler is invincible. Boilers are quite durable, and it may be true that they typically do not require much in terms of maintenance. They do break down eventually, though, just like any other system. It’s important that you be able to read the signs, so you’re not stuck with a malfunctioning system when you really need it!
