A Dual System with Even, Consistent Heating
While oil-fired combination steam boilers may not be as common as traditional oil furnaces, they are versatile systems that can also heat your home’s water—no separate water heater is needed. These units also heat your home more evenly and are energy efficient.
How do oil boilers work?
A boiler is a heating system that contains water. Unlike a furnace, boilers distribute steam instead of air. The burner provides a flame that heats the water to a high temperature, which is sent to radiators, baseboards, or a heating coil to provide warmth in your home. There are different types of boiler systems: Oil, gas and combination systems (oil and steam or gas and steam), condensing gas and water heater combination boilers, and gas combination boilers.
Benefits of oil boilers:
- Heats your home and hot water: Oil boilers can heat your home and hot water within one system.
- Even heat: Oil boilers heat homes more evenly
- Add central AC more easily: homeowners with boilers can now install a central air conditioning system more easily
- Energy-efficient: Many models are high efficiency to help save you on energy costs
