After an extensive search, my husband and I finally came across the perfect home for our family. We’d been house hunting in a specific area for nearly eight months. While we were tired of renting, we were unwilling to settle for a house that failed to meet our wants and needs. A large amount of property and privacy were a major priority. I was looking for a good sized kitchen, plenty of closets, and lots of windows. My husband wanted an attached garage, a full-sized basement, and a porch where he could relax. When we toured the house, our only concern was the boiler heating system. Having no experience with boiler heating, we worried that the equipment would cost a lot to operate, make a ton of noise, and fail to keep the home comfortable on especially cold nights. We couldn’t have been more wrong. The boiler is probably the best feature of the house. As a hydronic heating system, it uses water to move heat energy. Water heats up very quickly and retains heat better than air, making a boiler wonderfully energy efficient. The boiler infuses heat into the air, rather than blowing hot air, and avoids the introduction of contaminants. The system is clean, perfectly silent, and powerful enough to handle the most severe weather. A boiler easily accommodates zone control, allowing us to customize temperature room by room. We avoid the expense of heating unoccupied rooms and cater to personalize preferences. Plus, the boiler supplements our water heating needs, which saves even more money. With only annual maintenance, the boiler continues to operate dependably year after year.
