Boiler Repair in Virginia.
Boiler Installation, Replacements, and Upgrades from Perry Aire Services.
Boilers are an important part of a home and commercial business heating system, considered to be not only highly efficient but very cost effective. They can be powered by natural gas, oil, propane as well as electricity. A boiler is an appliance used to heat water for residential & commercial heating systems. These systems utiize the hot water from the boiler to spread the heat throughout the home or business by utilizing pipes to distribute it into different rooms and dispersing the heat through various types of radiators.
Once the radiator is heated with the hot water, the water is then returned to the boiler to be re-heated and then the circulation flow can continue. Although most modern homes do not have a boiler, most people with a boiler can use that same unit for years provided it is repaired and maintained properly and consistently.
The Two Types of Commercial/Residential Boilers:
Hot Water Boiler: These are smaller, low maintenance units that heat water to a temperature of 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated water is circulated through the building’s pipes, which heat up the radiators within each of the rooms. The water eventually cools and is directed back to the boiler through a return pipe and the process restarts again.
Steam Boiler: Not quite as commonly used today, as they are much more complex than hot water boilers. Found mostly in older homes that haven’t converted or upgraded yet, they operate with pressure gauges, blow-off valves, automatic feeds and special gauge glass. Steam heat is created from water that is generated in a gas, oil or electric boiler. It then goes through the pipes and radiators or convectors, where the steam turns into water and cycles back to the boiler.
