Ottawa gas boilers, also known as hydronic heating systems, work by heating up a water supply and circulating it through radiators in different rooms in your home. While some circulate steam, others move hot water throughout your home. As the water cools down, it returns to the boiler and is reheated.
Ottawa gas boilers offer significant advantages to homeowners.
Larger homes can often have problems with hot or cold air not reaching certain rooms. As is often the case, the bedrooms don’t get enough heating, leaving homeowners shivering in the cold Ottawa winters.
This happens because hot air dissipates to some degree as it travels through vents. However, because the heat from Ottawa gas boilers is circulated as a steady supply of hot water in a series of pipes, there is less heat loss than in forced air systems. Furthermore, homeowners don’t have to pile on the blankets to get a decent night’s sleep.
If you’re concerned about dust, a boiler system might just be for you. As a closed loop water-based system, boilers simply don’t move dust around your home in the way that forced air systems do. This is particularly handy if you have allergies, asthma or environmental sensitivities.
Our Ottawa boilers don’t introduce new air into a room, nor do they blow existing air around. Instead, the heat radiates outwards from the radiator. This eliminates the problem of dust being generated from your heating system.
Instead of introducing hot air into a room through a vent, boilers infuse the air with heat. And because heat is introduced in a different way than forced air systems, it is distributed throughout your home more evenly.
It’s also easy to create different zones of heat with a boiler system. Different sections of the home can be turned on or off, and specific zones can be set to different temperatures.
