What’s the difference between a boiler and a furnace? Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Boilers use hot water or steam to heat the home, while a furnace heats air that travels through the ducting. But the primary separation between the two is the type of heating they offer: furnaces heat with “convective” heat, while boilers generally use “radiant” heat. Convective heat starts at a source, heats the air, and distributes it through the home. Radiant heat travels across solid surfaces, such as your floors.
There are many advantages to having a boiler. For instance, hot air rises, so larger rooms may not be heated as effectively by a furnace — all of that heat winds up trapped on the ceiling, and the room still feels cold. With radiant heat, the heat is generated from the floor and stays low to the ground. So how do you take care of your boiler so that it gives you the heating advantages you need?
