Repair & Replacement
A boiler is a heating unit that can be configured to burn natural gas, propane, oil or electric to fuel the system that heats your home or commercial space. A good boiler is a very durable, long-lasting solution to heat your home.
Most residential gas boilers don't actually boil water, they just heat it. The hot water is then pumped into radiators, under-floor tubing, or to a heat exchanger. Wall - mounted radiators and hot water baseboards use their boiler-supplied hot water to warm rooms by radiation and convection. A gas boiler can also supply a forced air-heating system with hot water needed for its heat exchangers.
