What’s Wrong With Your Radiant Heat?

December 6th, 2021

We all know a bit about radiant heat, even if it might not seem like it. For instance, you probably know the phrase “heat rises,” right? Well, that’s one of the most basic principles of radiant heat! Many boiler systems and other radiant heaters rely on radiators and other heaters that sit close to the ground. This works since we know that heat radiates upwards and is easier for us to feel when it’s coming from below.

Likewise, most of us know about convection ovens. Well, radiant heat works with convection as well! Circulating the heat that’s rising through your house is one of the best ways to conserve heat and keep things energy efficient in your house. Like it or not, you might be a bit of a radiant heat expert yourself!

However, sometimes your home might need heating repair in Boise, ID, and it’s up to both of us to figure out what the problem is!

Are You Better Off With an Electric Furnace?

The Differences Between Tank and Tankless Water Heaters

October 11th, 2021

Most homeowners in our area have tank water heaters. For over a century, this has been the most common way to heat the water of a home. The water gets funneled into a tank system that sits in a convenient area of your house while it heats up from an electric coil or a gas burner. Then, this water sits on standby ready for use whenever you need it. It’s safe, effective, and tank water heaters are extremely affordable.

That being said, they’re not the only way to heat your home’s water. In fact, there’s a new type of water heater that homeowners are turning to in droves. Tankless water heaters, or “on-demand” water heaters, represent a new way of thinking about water heating technology that takes energy and fuel efficiency into account.

Our team provides water heater services in Meridian, ID, and we can get you set up with either system. Keep reading to discover which water heating unit is right for your home.
