FurnacesBoilers

A furnace is a major appliance for most people. It is permanently installed to provide heat to an interior space through intermediary fluid movement, which may be air, steam, or hot water. A typical life span of a furnace is about 20 years, but some modern age units can last 25 - 30 years.

A closed unit in which water or other fluid is heated. Heated or vaporized fluid exits the boiler for heating the building. Boilers can be made of cast-iron, steel, or copper heat exchangers, using different burners and venting systems. A wall-mount condensing boiler is a preferred design for most residential applications because of its flexible venting options and compact design.
