How a Gas Boiler Operates
A gas boiler uses natural gas from a city line or propane tank to function. It pumps this gas through a pipe, which is then regulated by a temperature gauge and a thermocouple. This allows it to function on less fuel and have greater energy efficiency. The natural gas keeps the boiler’s pilot light on to ensure the coils receive a sufficient amount of heat.
Once the coils are hot enough, they heat up the water in the tank, which then gets transferred throughout the pipes in your home, effectively radiating heat throughout your home. If you are having issues with the pilot light or electric igniter in your boiler, give our team a call by phone at (484) 206-8594 to receive assistance.

How an Oil Boiler Operates
Oil boilers are more commonly found in rural areas where natural gas access is limited. These boilers work by having a separate tank with oil. This tank pumps oil into the boiler. Next, hot air or water is pumped into the pipes throughout your home. We offer trustworthy oil boiler repair and installation services to homes in Drexel Hill and other areas of Pennsylvania. Give our staff a call at (484) 206-8594 to book an appointment.

How a Steam Boiler Works
Steam boilers are equipped with a heat exchanger that is engineered to heat water and transfer it to the radiators in your home. The heat exchanger heats the water in the tank to convert it to steam, causing a rise in pressure. This increase in pressure causes the steam to rise from the pipes and the radiators, opening the radiator’s air vents. If you are having problems with your steam boiler, give our staff a call at (484) 206-8594 to book an appointment.
4 Benefits of Investing in a Boiler
Investing in a boiler can have many benefits for your home. The top 4 benefits are:
1.) Boilers Save Energy & Money
Water transfers heat more efficiently when compared to air ducts. This means that performing a boiler installation or repair can decrease the cost of your utility bills each month. Boilers save energy since they require less fuel to heat your home. Their efficiency allows you to save more money in the long run when compared to a furnace.
2.) Long Life Cycle
Boilers tend to have fewer moving parts than a furnace or heat pump, which are typically equipped with motors and fans to disperse heat to your home. The only big mechanical moving part in a boiler is the circulator pump. Since boilers have fewer parts when compared to a furnace, they undergo less stress when functioning and require less repairs. Boilers tend to outlast other heating systems and can last up to three decades with the proper maintenance.
3.) Minimal Maintenance
Their fewer mechanical components not only means they’re long-lasting but that they also require less maintenance and repairs over the years, so long as they receive annual inspections and tune-ups.
4.) Reliable Circulation of Heat
Unlike a furnace, boilers can provide heat evenly throughout your house. Furnaces only push air out through air ducts that are placed around the house, meaning that there can be cold spots where there are no ducts.
On the other hand, it is not uncommon for the warm air produced by a furnace to collect at the top of a room. Boilers do not have this problem. An advantage of performing a boiler installation is that heat is radiated evenly throughout a home since the heat is provided by water, not air.
Disadvantages of Installing a Boiler
Although they reap many benefits, boilers have a couple of disadvantages, including:
1.) High Cost
Boilers are more expensive than furnaces. Including installation costs, getting a boiler may cost you upwards of $7,000, with the national average cost being about $5,695. This also depends on the type of boiler you choose. A gas boiler can be anywhere from $3,500-$8,000, but an oil boiler is about $3,000-$5,000. However, it is worth considering that you tend to save more money in the long run with a boiler than a furnace because of its efficiency and high durability.
2.) No Cool Air During the Summer Season
Boilers are great for heating homes. Unfortunately, spending money on a boiler installation or repair will not provide you with cold air during the summer season. This means that you will need to install a separate central air system—which can be costly, especially if your home does not already have ducts.
