In this type of heating system, the radiator, boiler and all connecting pipes are filled with water. The boiler heats this water to about ?? degrees Fahrenheit, and the pump pushes the heated water to the radiator, where the heat propagates to the surrounding air. Then the cooled water returns to the boiler to be heated.
How a Steam Heater Works
The heat of steam flows through the pipes to the rest of the house and is distributed by heaters. Hot water versions pump water through radiators or underfloor heating systems or heat the air with a coil. The boilers operate on various energy sources, including natural gas, oil, electricity and wood.
The steam heating system uses a boiler to convert water into steam. The steam then flows through the pipes to the radiators and heats the house. When the steam cools down, it condenses back into water and returns to the boiler to be reheated.
Hot Water Heaters
Hot water heaters work similarly to steam heaters, except that the steam does not generate pressure and the heat is more actively redirected. Each radiator in the hot water system has an inlet and an outlet. The inlet is used to heat hot water, and the outlet to drain water. The water is heated in the water heater during the system’s operation.
They usually work by radiating heat into the room, because the air surrounding the radiator has a lower temperature than the hot water flowing in it; there is, therefore, a temperature gradient between them. In the cooling system, the boiler would not work as such, so the convection process would fail and the water would stop circulating. The solution would be to install an electric pump that would maintain the water flow.
Steam Kettle vs Convection Oven
A steam kettle works similarly to a tea kettle, boiling water until hot steam is released. The internal pressure behind the steam forces it to move through the pipe system. When steam reaches every radiator in the house, it emits convective heat to heat the room.
In contrast, the convection oven heats the air in the room, which means that objects absorb heat more slowly. In the oven, heated air is blown through the channels that introduce warm air into the rooms of the house through air registers or grilles.
Condensing VS Non-condensing Boiler Systems
The main reason condensing boilers are better than non-condensing models is that they are at least 25% more efficient.
Their effectiveness is achieved by preheating the cold water entering the boiler with waste heat from flue gases, thanks to which more heat is brought into the room from the outside than from the inside.
Condensing boilers therefore absorb up to 11% more heat than non-condensing boilers.
Condensing boilers with an efficiency of up to 99% can help significantly reduce fuel costs and reduce the carbon footprint, making them an excellent alternative heating system.
Our experts will solve boiler and central heating problems in no time.

How do Condensing Boilers Work?
Condensing boilers are gas or oil-powered water heaters.
As the name suggests, the boiler’s operating principle is based on condensation – a process that draws more heat from the fuel consumed. The unused heat from the flue gas is used, which is normally released into the atmosphere in a conventional boiler system.
Condensing boilers can replace most existing boiler systems.
As usual with conventional boiler replacement work, check the effectiveness of the control system and the type of hot water storage tank during installation. In addition, it is important to clean and flush the existing heating system before assembling the boiler itself to ensure that the newly installed boiler has higher efficiency.
