Residential boiler systems use water to transfer heat to keep a home warm. Homeowners that use a residential boiler system often find many benefits, including a more consistent temperature.
Boiler systems don’t require ductwork. Instead, a boiler sends heated water to radiators, which transfers heat from water to air, then returns the water to the boiler and starts the whole process over again. This process is more efficient, and creates a cleaner indoor environment. Without air flowing through ducts, pushing dust and other pollutants out into individual rooms, it’s one of the cleanest ways to heat your home.
Residential boilers have a life expectancy of ten to fifteen years. With proper maintenance, it can easily function up to fifteen years and beyond. When it is time to replace it, many homeowners wouldn’t want anything but a boiler system to heat the home.
But if you’re in the market for a new one, there are several new products that make your boiler system even more efficient, and will help you stay more comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside.
While homeowners with gas-forced furnaces have been talking about smart thermostats for years, boiler systems can also use them to control how warm you want your home throughout the day. You can set up a daily and weekly schedule, maximizing your comfort. You can integrate it with a mobile device to access it anywhere. Some systems also integrate with weather tracking, which gives them the ability to change the indoor weather according to outdoor weather patterns.
Outdoor reset controls
Here in Colorado, spring and fall are anything but predictable. Temperatures and weather patterns can shift drastically from hour to hour. Your boiler adjusts based on a set schedule. By having an outdoor reset control, your boiler will adapt based on outdoor temperatures readings. This can add to the efficiency of your boiler system, and help you save on your utility bills over time.
Variable speed pump
Like standard furnaces, traditional boiler systems have on/off capabilities. Including a variable speed pump with your boiler systems provides a way to deliver different levels of airflow based on comfort levels. It can be monitored based on a few pre-specified speeds – high, medium, low. This gives you flexibility in how much airflow moves into each room, keeping you comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside.
