What is the difference between a furnace and a boiler?

While it might seem like you can use the two terms interchangeably, a furnace and a boiler are two markedly different units. The main difference is that a furnace heats air and a boiler heats water. A furnace will heat air that will be moved through a home’s duct system to provide warmth. A boiler will heat water that then flows through the pipes of your home to provide heat.

What is the normal temperature for a hot water heating system?

It depends on the type of hot-water heating system you’re working with. For instance, you’d normally set a hot-water baseboard heating system for a high temperature of 180° F. A radiant-floor heating system, on the other hand, can vary widely, with a supply temperature from 90°F to 130°F, depending on what type of construction and material is covering it (carpeting, hardwood flooring, and ceramic tile). The radiant designer takes all of this into consideration.

Who should I contact to work on my furnace?

It is always recommended that the installer of the furnace be contacted first. If the installer is unable to be contacted or is unable to provide service, a qualified local heating technician should be contacted. In the hands of an inexperienced person, heating equipment can be dangerous: never attempt a repair yourself.

Do I have to register my warranty?

We recommend you register your warranty so we have your information on file should we ever need to contact you in regard to a technical issue.
