Boilers are heating systems commonly used in Baltimore, Maryland, homes and houses throughout much of the surrounding area. If you’re looking for a boiler that will maintain a comfortable indoor atmosphere within your three-bedroom home while maximizing efficiency, you may wonder which option is right for your space. Take a closer look at a few of the top boiler types and the benefits of each.

Oil Boiler

An oil boiler uses hot water and oil to produce heat. When the heating cycle initiates, liquid moves from the storage tank into a nozzle through a fuel line, where pressure forces a mist into the combustion chamber. When mixed with air, the atomized oil and the ignition produce a spark that ignites the vapors. This produces hot gas that moves through tubes within the heat exchanger.

As a result, the water in the unit heats up and circulates through the pipes. This type of boiler is a good option if you have limited access to natural gas.

Condensing Boiler

A condensing boiler is similar to an oil boiler, although more efficient because it can recover energy from the waste gas typically exhausted from a traditional oil boiler. The combustion process in this type of unit produces water vapor, releasing latent heat that can increase the efficiency drastically. If energy efficiency is a major concern for you, take a look at this type of boiler to heat your home.

Gas Boiler

Gas boilers are also more efficient than oil boilers. They rely on natural gas, which comes into the home through pipes. These units operate similarly to oil boilers in the process, although the fuel source is gas and the combustion chamber and heat exchanger are simpler in their designs.

When you choose a boiler for your home, consider the efficiency rating, maintenance requirements, and conversion cost. Our technicians at Griffith Energy Services can assess the layout of your three-bedroom home to determine which boiler will provide efficient, even heat and give you the benefits you want.
