Boilers are used in homes and businesses that use hydronic heating. Hot water is circulated either through in floor heating pipes or radiators. Many new homes are installing boilers instead of forced air heating. In-floor heating is a more comfortable and efficient way to heat your home. Heat radiates up from the floor. Often homeowners can set their thermostat to a lower setting and still remain comfortable.
Homeowners with a boiler that also want air conditioning can use an energy efficient ductless split. This delivers cooling from ceiling height which also improves comfort. Forced air systems often do not do a good jog of cooling the second floor of a home. This problem is eliminated with a ductless spit.
Boiler service and installation requires a technician that is a licensed plumber and pipe fitter. Rike Plumbing has experience working with both commercial and residential boiler systems in Calgary.
New condensing boilers are 94%+ efficient. Replacing an older natural draft boiler can result in annual energy savings of up to 30%. Modern boilers are attractive wall mounted units that save on floor space. Boilers can also be used to provide domestic hot water.
