What Is a Boiler?
Some homeowners use the words “furnace” and “boiler” interchangeably, but the reality is that these two heating systems are quite different. Boilers burn fuel – it could be oil, wood, coal, or natural gas – to heat up a large tank of water. The hot water supply travels through pipes throughout the home to provide heat. A furnace, on the other hand, heats air that is then carried through the home’s duct system.
If you have a boiler in your home, it is important to keep your system in good shape. The lifespan of your unit will depend on the type of boiler you have, but generally speaking, a well-maintained boiler can last up to 15 years.
