Montgomery Boiler Information: Benefits and Disadvantages
Radiant heating systems operate by circulating heated water or steam through a series of pipes installed in your home’s floors, walls or ceiling. To heat the water, radiant systems often employ a boiler and a pump. The boiler heats the water and the pump circulates it through your home and back again.
Heating your home this way has a number of benefits that many homeowners enjoy over furnaces.
- Reduced air pollutants – Because furnaces have to circulate air throughout your home, they are often a cause of respiratory problems because of all the contaminants that exist in your home’s air. By heating your home using radiant heaters, you might be able to improve the quality of air in your home by reducing the amount of particulates being circulated.
- Reduced energy usage – Unlike forced-air systems that heat the air, radiant heaters actually heat the objects and people in the room. By heating your home in this way, you could be able to set the temperature of your home several degrees lower which might reduce the amount of energy that you need to heat your home.
While boilers do have some pretty awesome advantages, they do have a few disadvantages that homeowners need to know about. First, if problems start to develop with your boiler, water leaks can develop which can cause costly damage to your home. Second, rust is another issue that can develop because of all the water that your boiler uses.
