When you live in New York, heating your home during the winter isn’t an option. It’s a necessity. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a system that doesn’t meet your needs.
At Ray The Plumber, we offer what many companies don’t: options. So, rather than heating your home with a traditional forced air system, you can choose a boiler. This heating alternative relies on hot water to deliver a difference you’ll feel—both in your comfort and your wallet.
From bathing to cleaning to cooking, hot water plays a pivotal role in your home comfort. And with a boiler, it becomes even more essential. That’s because, rather than relying on air to heat your home, boilers rely on water.
Here’s how it works.
To start, a boiler heats water inside its tank. Then, once the H2O reaches its steaming point, it’s sent through your home’s network of pipes, where it efficiently warms your space from the ground up.
Not only does this radiant heating system produce reliable comfort, it also leads to steaming hot benefits, too!
With the ability to retain a larger amount of heat for a longer period of time, water is a better thermal medium than air. Also, unlike air, water’s temperature can be precisely controlled and measured. This means, since a boiler relies on water to operate, it won’t exceed the temperature you’ve set on the thermostat, delivering reliable comfort in a more energy efficient manner.
With a forced air system, warm air has to travel through air ducts before it can enter your home. Unfortunately, up to 30 percent of this heated air seeps out of your ducts before it has a chance to reach you. Because boilers heat your home through pipes instead of ducts, no heat is lost and a lot of energy is gained.
Because air rises when it’s warm and sinks as it cools, with a forced air system, you’ll notice hot and cold spots in your home. A boiler is different. Rather than aimlessly blowing heat into your home, this system transports it through pipes nestled in your home’s walls and floors to deliver even heating.
It’s important to understand that the health of your indoor environment has a direct effect on your wellbeing.
As a forced air system circulates warmth, it inadvertently helps pollutants and other harmful airborne contaminants spread throughout your space. This, in turn, can compromise your health. Boilers keep your home cozy without affecting your air quality. Because of this, choosing a boiler does more than keep you comfy. It keeps you healthy, too.
Unlike noisy forced air systems, boilers operate quietly. This, in turn, delivers a difference in comfort you can feel—with whisper-like precision.
