If you’re in the market for a new heating system, you may be considering a gas boiler. But how does a gas boiler work? At Xgas Ltd, we specialize in boiler installation and are here to explain the basics of how these systems work to heat your home.
First, let’s define what a gas boiler is. A gas boiler is a heating system that uses natural gas or propane as a fuel source to heat water or produce steam. The heated water or steam is then used to heat your home or provide hot water for household tasks like bathing and washing dishes.
So, how does a gas boiler work? When you turn on your boiler, a gas burner ignites and heats a metal heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is a series of tubes or coils that contain water. As the water flows through the heat exchanger, it is heated by the gas burner and begins to boil.
The hot water or steam produced by the boiler is then circulated through a series of pipes and radiators or baseboard heaters throughout your home. As the hot water or steam passes through the radiators or heaters, it releases heat, warming the air in your home.
It’s important to note that gas boilers require regular maintenance and servicing to ensure they are running efficiently and effectively.
