Do you want to upgrade your system this winter? A boiler system could be great for your home.

If you’re thinking of installing a boiler here in Denton, TX then make sure you choose our team to provide your installation, repair, and maintenance services.
What is Radiant Heat?
So, the furnace system that you’re likely used to is classified as a “forced-air” heating system. This is a term to denote the warm air circulating through the vents in your home. Boilers don’t do this. Boilers circulate hot water through pipes in your home (either in walls, flooring, or both) to distribute heat in your home. With this type of heating, the heat radiates out into your living space from objects.
The Advantages of Radiant Heating
Efficiency: Since boilers use water for their systems, they offer a number of unique advantages. Boilers are often better for your bottom line than a furnace because water is a much better conductor of heat than air is. Water is able to hold the heat for much longer and distribute it more evenly than a furnace system.
The problem with a forced air system is that heat rises, so it’s sometimes hard to heat your entire home (or even certain rooms within your home) evenly. A boiler system can help you bypass this frustration. Boiler systems also are great because they bypass duct leaks. Duct leaks are a huge disadvantage, they can actually account for almost 30% of energy loss in a forced air system. When you choose a boiler for your home your wallet will thank you.
Comfort: Radiant heating actually feels different than forced air heating. Many homeowners actually opt for these systems because the heat from radiant heating systems is more likened to the warmth of the sun shining down on you on a hot day whereas forced-air heating is, well, hot air. While both systems definitely provide comfort, we find that radiant heating systems are a customer favorite—this is especially true if you choose an in-floor system.
