Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between a boiler and water heater?
While both a boiler and water heater heat water, they serve different purposes.
Boilers heat non-potable water to heat the home with steam and radiant techniques. Water heaters heat potable water for cooking, cleaning, and more.
Tank water heaters also store heated water until you’re ready to use it. Boilers don’t store water; they only heat it.
Are boilers efficient?
Yes, although precise boiler efficiency depends on the fuel choice. For example, oil boilers have a rating of 87% AFUE or higher, while gas boilers have a rating of 90% AFUE or higher.
What is boiler kettling?
Boiler kettling is when your unit whistles, pops, or bubbles. Some common causes for this issue include leaks, overheating, and limescale buildup.
A licensed technician can help determine the cause and solution if your boiler is kettling.
