boiler questions

As a homeowner, there are plenty of things you’ll discover about your home over time. While some people might have more knowledge than others, here are a few of the top boiler questions we’ve heard over the years that we would like to share with you.   

Top Boiler Questions: What Are The Different Types Of Boiler? 

There are 3 types of boiler available to you. Traditional boilers have a large tank for storing and heating water – which are good for larger families and higher demand for hot water. System boilers have a tank that is usually stored away from the unit – outdoors– to prevent taking up excess space. Combi boilers are a combination of a heating system and hot water tank without an actual tank. These are the most compact and can usually fit in a small closet in your home. 

Top Boiler Questions: What’s A Condensate Pipe?

Think of your boiler as a car. Every car has a tailpipe to expel excess fumes and runoff. That’s essentially what a condensate pipe is for your boiler. It carries any water run-off outside and away from the boiler so it can operate properly.   

Top Boiler Questions: Do I Really Need Maintenance?

The short answer is yes – but it’s not as often as you might think. Boiler maintenance comes down to the type of boiler you have. Some need maintenance a bit less frequently due to their design. It’s always best to check with a professional who can take the time to lay out which options make sense for your specific situation. Commonly, boiler maintenance is something that can be done every 1-2 years to ensure things are running smooth.
