Boilers & Chillers

Don't know where to start?
Boilers use a heated or vaporized fluid to provide residential heating or for other industrial and commercial applications. Chillers use a vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycle to remove heat from a liquid to keep equipment or large facilities cool. If you're in the market for a new boiler or chiller, we can help you make the best choice to fit your needs.

What Do I Need to Know About Boilers and Chillers?

Boilers use a heated or vaporized fluid to provide residential heating or for other industrial and commercial applications.

Types of Chillers

Chillers are available in two main categories: either vapor compression or vapor absorption.

A vapor compression chiller uses electrically driven compressors to force refrigerant through the unit, while vapor absorption uses heat to move refrigerant. While both systems are energy-efficient, cost-effective, and dependable, vapor compression chillers — further split into air-cooled and water chiller options — are the most commonly installed systems:

  • Air chillers: These systems use fans to remove heat, blowing the air over exposed tubes in the condenser. Air chillers aren’t as efficient as water chillers, but they’re easy to install and can be installed outside a building to save space indoors.
  • Water chillers: A water chiller removes heat by pumping water through a sealed container and dispersing it through a cooling tower. Water chillers are popular because they are more efficient and often have longer lifespans compared to air chillers.

Types of Boilers

Boilers are one of the most popular types of heating units found in homes throughout the United States. They come in several different designs and piping configurations. The most common types of boiler systems are water tube boilers, gas-fired, or oil-fired steam boilers, and gas-fired condensing boilers.

Considerations Before Buying Boilers and Chillers

Like any major appliance purchase, there are several aspects to consider when purchasing a new boiler for your home. With so many different configurations, brands, and options out there, you want to make sure to find a model that’s right for your household’s needs and long-term expectations.

The top things to consider when purchasing a new boiler are:

  • Size: While it seems like size might not matter, units that are too large will waste energy while boilers that are too small won’t effectively heat your home. The boiler size you need is determined by which climate you live in. Warmer climates only need 20 BTUs, while moderate climates require 35 BTUS and colder, northern climates should be no less than 50 BTUs.
  • Venting styles: For improved effectiveness and safety, choose a boiler venting style that best suits your home. Boilers vented using a chimney will need to be placed in smaller, closed-off spaces. Those using a forced-air system will need to be installed in an open area that allows it to gather air.
  • Efficiency: High-efficiency boilers are designed to trap escaping heat and redirect it back into the home versus burning excess fossil fuels or natural gas. For more energy-efficient boilers, check for Energy Star ratings or a model that utilizes electricity.
