How Do Hot Water Boilers Work?
Hot water boiler work by heating water and circulating that hot water through baseboards, or radiators in your home. The hot water can also be fed to tubing under a floor which is called radiant heating. Hot water boilers can also be used for Hydro-Air systems. These systems are a hybrid system utilizing a hot water boiler to heat water which is then used to heat a hot water coil.
A hot water coil resembles a radiator in a car, through which air is passed though with a fan and is heated and circulated throughout the home. Some replacement hot water boilers are designed to produce steam instead of hot water, due to the extra energy required to produce steam, they are not commonly installed in new homes.
