A boiler is a unit that produces what is known as “wet heat”, which comes in the form of either hot water or steam. The boiler heats water either until it turns to steam or just very hot water. This steam or water is then sent from the boiler to a piping system throughout the home or building to provide efficient, economical and even heat. Boilers can also provide hot water to homes and businesses.
Boilers are an example of residential or commercial heating where instead of air, or what is called forced air, we use water to heat the space, which is quite comfortable and often times the only solution to heat a dwelling. There are many different sizing options to match any building or home, as well as boiler efficiency levels ranging from 81% up to and above 90% efficiency.
Coleman Heating can also install cast iron or steel boilers if these units meet your budget and comfort needs. We also install indirect water heaters, cast iron water radiation systems and heat distributors to provide heat and water needs.
Wet Heat Basics
Our highly trained and certified technicians use a system of pipes specifically designed for your home or building. We go room by room and tie those pipes to radiant equipment placed in the room, so the heated water or steam can flow from the boiler as intended throughout the dwelling. Your typical room thermostat controls your call for heat if and when it is needed.
We can also now install special controls to stage the boiler’s energy use. This saves you energy and money, and is more environmentally friendly as well. Ask Coleman Heating about our smart boiler controls today!
Typically boilers are installed in a basement or utility area. Boilers make great sense when the home or building already has wet heat and we are either adding to an existing system or replacing the existing boiler with a newer more modern boiler.
Coleman Heating installs, services and repairs all types of units including gas, propane, oil fired boilers. We even offer biomass boilers. There are also different efficiency ranges in boilers, depending upon the circumstances, the engineering application, and of course the budget to complete the installation.
Boiler installation isn’t a simple project, and requires certification by the unit manufacturer. Technicians are highly trained to properly size the water lines and adjust the pressure within the system, after professional analysis of the building or the existing home. Improper installation can cause severe damage and bodily injury, so please consult with a professional before touching or doing anything to the boiler unit.
Regular boiler system maintenance is critical to keeping it properly tuned and operating at the capacity and efficiency required. Coleman Heating is one of the most respected names in the wet heat or boiler replacement and service industry. Our boiler heating experts are trained to properly size and engineer a system that meets the exact specification for your home or building.
