Boiler Installation-Vancouver & Lower Mainland Area
Installing a radiant heating system isn’t a difficult process, particularly if you work with experienced service providers such as ourselves. There are some things to take into consideration, however. Specifically, you need to assess whether this is the right heating system for your needs.
What are Boilers and How Do They Work?
Instead of forced air, boilers heat water to produce “wet heat” in the form of steam or hot water, which is then channeled through a network of pipes to provide efficient and comfortable warmth throughout a residence or business. The average boiler Vancouver has to offer can come in a wide range of sizes to suit any application, as well as vary in efficiency from as low as 81% to high-efficiency which can surpass 90%.
The 3 main types of new boiler installs available are:
Traditional Heat-Only Boilers have a two-tank system. One tank stores cold water, and the other tank is used to maintain the normal water level of your home’s central heating system. Benefits of having a traditional boiler in British Columbia include keeping up with British Columbia heating demands, and even if you have low water pressure from your mainline, there is no drawback to the capability of the traditional boiler. Traditional boilers are also compatible with older heating systems. However, owning a traditional boiler can take up a lot of space, and you will lose more energy than alternative options if the tank is not insulated properly.
