What is a Boiler Heating System?

Boiler heating systems use water heated in a central boiler to distribute heat through radiators, baseboards, or radiant floor heating systems. They’re highly efficient, especially if you have a modern condensing boiler, which can help lower your monthly energy bills. With the right maintenance, boilers can provide reliable heating for decades.

What is a Radiant Heating System?

A radiant heating system offers a comfortable, even distribution of warmth without the drafts you may find with forced-air systems. Radiant systems can be highly efficient, especially when combined with energy-efficient boilers or heat pumps.

What is a Heating Furnace?

A heating furnace uses fuel combustion, such as natural gas, oil, or propane, to generate heat and carry it through ducts to different rooms in the home. They can be used with different types of fuels and can accommodate central air conditioning systems for year-round comfort.

When Should I Replace a Boiler Heating System?

Knowing when to replace your heating system is essential for keeping your home comfortable and energy efficient. Exact replacement timelines depend on the type of boiler, age, and how well it has been maintained, but we recommend the following guidelines: 

  • Boiler heating system: 15-20 years (cast iron boilers can last longer)
  • Radiant heating system: 20 years
  • Heating furnace: 15 to 30 years
