New homeowners or those who have never had to service their heating systems before may be a bit unclear on what type of heating system goes in their homes, or what their options are for a heating system replacement. Depending on who you speak to, a heating system may be called either a boiler or a furnace. But the fact is that these are two very different systems.
We want to make sure that you understand the differences between how these systems work and how they are set up in your home. By going over the very basics, you’re much better equipped to determine which system you have in your home, how you should keep up with maintenance, or which system is the best fit for a new home.
