Selecting Boilers in Langley

High Mark Plumbing would like to help you with selecting boilers in Langley. Autumn is a good time to think about your heating system, and to get in ahead of the cold weather with maintenance or changes you wish to make.

Selecting Boilers in Langley

Most American homes are either heated with a furnace or a boiler, according to Energy.gov. A furnace heats airĀ and blows it throughout the house. A boiler heats water which is then piped throughout the house either as steam or as water. Old style boilers, particularly those that were gas fired, used a pilot light to enable the burner to kick on whenever there was a demand for more heat to be applied to the water. Newer models now use an electronic ignition, which means saying goodbye to the inefficient and sometimes dangerous pilot light. The minimum AFUE (ratio of fuel burned to heat produced) for a heater should be around 78%. Some newer models can achieve up to 90%. If a new heating system is not in your budget this year, retrofitting the hold one to bring it up to standards could save you money on fuel bills and make your home more comfortable. Plan ahead so that you can be comfortable when temperatures begin to drop.
