Frequently Asked Questions
What is a boiler?
A boiler is a system that heats up water for the purpose of turning it into steam for heat generation. The boiler itself is often a large metal cylinder that exists in a building’s basement or crawl space.
How does a boiler work?
Using high amounts of pressure, a boiler heats up the water contained inside it to create steam. The steam can then be used to produce heat in a home or commercial building. Boilers can be powered by oil, gas, or electricity depending on the type of boiler being used.

Is a boiler a furnace?
A boiler is not a furnace. Boilers use hot water to generate their power, while furnaces use air. Both systems can be used to heat up the house or building they’re in, but the energy source is different.
