Boilers in Rome, GA
When you think of a heating system today, you probably think of a forced air system like a heat pump or furnace. Those are definitely the most common types of home heating systems on the market, and have been for many years. However, they’re not the first or even necessarily the best heating option for everybody.
Boiler technology has been around in one form or another for quite a long time. In fact, citizens of ancient Rome used to heat their homes by pouring boiling water into special canals hidden under the floor. The technique for modern boilers is a bit different, and quite a bit more effective. Moody Heating and Air Conditioning installs and services boiler systems throughout Rome, GA. If you need boiler services of any kind, call us today for an appointment.
Boiler Heating Methods
A boiler heating system heats water by passing it through a heat exchanger, essentially a large pipe located in the main body of the unit. The water in the heat exchanger is heated by either gas or electricity, after which it is pumped throughout a pipe network installed in each room of the house. These pipes are installed in the walls or subfloors of the different rooms in the house. Sometimes, the pipes are connected to terminal units like baseboard heaters or iron radiators. As the hot water passes through these pipes, they transfer heat outward and into the room. The heat radiates outward, passing from object to object in the room in order to heat it.
Why Choose a Boiler System?
There are many reasons to choose a boiler system to heat your home. Boiler systems are actually quite a bit more energy efficient than most forced air systems. When hot air is pumped into a room, it will naturally rise to the ceiling where it is of little help to anyone. The air will then sink as it cools, creating uncomfortable hot and cold spots throughout the room.
Boiler systems, on the other hand, don’t use air to transport heat. They simply transfer thermal energy directly from object to object. This keeps all of the heat near the bottom half of the room, where it will benefit the occupants the most. Water is also a much better thermal medium than air is, able to warm up faster and maintain heat for longer. This helps the boiler heat the home with less energy expenditure than a forced air system.
