Choosing between a gas furnace and a boiler is crucial when you’re looking for an effective solution for heating your Baltimore, Maryland, home. Here are some of the differences between gas furnaces and boilers that you should keep in mind if you’re in need of a home heating system.

What Is a Boiler?

A boiler is a home heating system that works by boiling water to convert it into steam. The steam is transmitted through your home using a system of pipes. Boilers provide a variety of benefits that homeowners appreciate. For starters, boilers are typically very efficient, resulting in lower energy bills. Ongoing maintenance requirements are generally not a concern with boilers, and you’ll have more consistent heating in your home.

What Is a Gas Furnace?

Instead of heating water, a furnace works by heating air. Your furnace will be equipped with a blower that will distribute the hot air created by your furnace into your home’s duct system. While a furnace will effectively heat your home, it will be slightly less efficient than a boiler and will usually require regular air filter changes. On the other hand, furnaces are much easier and less expensive to install.

Which Should You Choose?

Now that you know a little more about furnaces and boilers, it’s time to choose between these heating options, and your choice really comes down to your individual needs. For instance, if you want a zone heating solution, meaning you’ll only be heating the rooms in which you spend the most time, a boiler is an excellent choice. On the other hand, if you want the most effective system for heating your entire home, then you should schedule a furnace installation. Whichever you choose, you’ll easily be able to keep your home and family comfortable.
