Boiler Repair & Installation Services in Lynn, MA and The North Shore Area
Boilers as a Heating System
A boiler works by heating water to create either hot water or steam which is distributed through pipes to steam radiators, baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems. A boiler’s efficiency, just like a furnace’s efficiency, is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), which measures the amount of heat actually delivered to your house compared to the amount of fuel that you must supply to the boiler. Note: that the AFUE refers only to the unit’s fuel efficiency, not its electricity usage. Energy Star products must have an AFUE rating of 85% or greater, meaning that 85% of the fuel you supply to the boiler goes directly into heating your home and that only 15% is wasted. But why should you have to worry about this on your own?

Leading Technology: Radiant Floor Heating
These state-of-the-art heating systems are beneficial to not only your wallet, but also the environment, because they provide lower energy and operating costs. They heat your home by pumping warm water through specially designed tubing laid under or within your floor. The heat in these tubes radiates to the surface and rises evenly throughout the room above. The floor itself stays comfortably warm. This tremendously efficient heat transfer system results in even, consistent heating.Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating:
- No energy is lost through ducts making it more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating.
- There is less moving air which can help people with severe allergies.
- Systems that use hydronics or are liquid based use little electricity, which help reduce high electricity bills.
- Systems that use hydronics can also be heated with a wide variety of energy sources like standard gas, oil-fired or wood-fired boilers, solar water heaters, or some combination of these.
