A hot water boiler is used to heat water for a hydronic heating system. Hydronic heating maintains comfort in your home with hot water circulating to every room. The system consists of a boiler, pump and baseboards connected by water piping. The boiler heats water to temperatures between 120º and 210º, and the water is then pumped through the piping in the baseboards located around the outer perimeter of the home for a curtain of warmth, or in the floor in radiant systems.
Radiant systems use special composite plastic piping systems embedded in the floor. The energy from the heated water in the pipes radiates to the surrounding environment, warming the floors, furniture and anyone in the room. Cold tile floors become warm and inviting, and they provide maximum decorating versatility – you never have to worry about where to put furniture.
