What Is a Hydronic Boiler?
A hydronic boiler is a heating system that employs either a heat exchanger or a heating element in order to heat a fluid. There are two main types of boilers: hot water boilers and steam boilers. Hot water boilers heat the water but not to the boiling point, and steam boilers heat the water until it becomes steam. In both cases, that fluid is piped throughout the home or business in order to provide radiant heat. This has traditionally been achieved with wall and baseboard radiators, but modern radiant heating gives you other options, such as radiant panels that can be installed in floors, walls, and ceilings.

Benefits of a Well-Functioning Hydronic Boiler
Boilers are among the most energy-efficient heating solutions on the market. They not only lower your carbon footprint but lower your costs on a monthly basis and over the equipment lifespan. Boiler systems allow for multiple zones and warm floors. They also don’t require forced air, which means ductwork is unnecessary. They are quieter, don’t diminish your indoor air quality, and don’t lower the humidity as a byproduct of providing heat.
Hydronic Boiler Installation and Replacement
Horn can replace your old boiler with a new and more modern system. We also install boiler systems in homes and businesses that currently have a different heating technology, such as a furnace or heat pump.
Horn recommends seasonal maintenance of your boiler system, such as in the fall, prior to the heating season. Those services are available to you as needed, but we recommend taking advantage of our maintenance plans. They ensure that your system gets the maintenance it needs on schedule and helps you save money in the process.

Types of Heaters We Replace
During the cold fall and winter months, you rely on your home’s heating system nearly every day. If it fails and you find yourself in need of furnace replacement services, you can count on the team at Horn to be there for you. Here are a few of the different types of residential and commercial heaters that we replace:
Heat pumps are highly efficient systems that transfer heat energy as opposed to generating heat directly. This means it can transfer heat into your home during winter but also transfer it out of your home during summer.
Furnaces do generate heat directly either with a heat exchanger or a heating element. That warmed air is then forced into ductwork where it eventually reaches the living spaces via vents.
