More about Hydronic Heating
In Europe, hot water boilers are commonly used in residential and commercial buildings. In the United States, boilers are increasing in popularity. In cold weather areas, a boiler can be a great investment to ensure a warm home or building. There are three main heating systems for the home:
- Hydronics - Hydronic heating can be summed up as any heating system that uses water in the system. Whether by hot-water or steam heating. Hot water boilers can be found as hydronic systems, and they are generally quiet and create an even distribution of heat.
- Forced Hot Air - This is the most common heating system for your home, mainly because it uses the same ductwork as your central air system.
- Electric Heat - Electric heating is most commonly used with baseboard heaters. These work great but can become expensive with the rise in electric costs around the country.
Hot water boilers come with an efficiency rating called AFUE or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. This rating measures the thermal productivity (efficiency) of a heating appliance such as a hot water heater, furnace or boiler.

Great Tips for Choosing a Boiler Online
- When choosing the size of your hot water boiler, it is important to have a trained (qualified) heating technician to take a look. He will do what is called a “Heat Load Calculation” which measures the size of the home or building, and also the climate in your area. This is all done in order to determine the coldest day that you might have during the year. Having a professional come to your home to calculate the correct boiler for your needs will help you get the greatest efficiency out of your heating system.
- Since HVAC systems contain high heat and combustion processes, it is important to gain knowledge before doing any work on your system. If you are a Do-it-yourselfer getting a new boiler for your home, you may want to consider contacting a heating technician to guarantee a safe installation.
- If you want to know which boiler would be cheapest with your utility bills as far as fuel (natural gas, oil, electric or propane) costs, contact your utility provider to give you the best information to make an educated decision.
