Staying warm in the Canadian cold is important and achieved by the heart of your heating system – your boiler. Depending on which type you have, however, your boiler can do more than just heat your home. Heat only units provide hydronic heating – water is heated inside the boiler and then transported through baseboards, radiators, or even pipes under the floor or driveway (also known as radiant heating). On the other hand, combination units provide home heating but also domestic hot water. This simply means any hot water being used by the home’s occupants – including water for showers, sinks, dishwashers, etc. Since combination boilers eliminate the need for a second appliance for domestic hot water, they help you save on fuel, maintenance, space, and energy consumption. Ultimately, most people find combi-boilers to be the most cost-effective, but we will help you determine what is best for you and your household.
