What Are the Benefits of a Utica Boiler Heating System?
Residential boiler heating systems offer a diverse range of benefits. Let’s take a look at a few:
Cleaner Form of Heating – Hot water boilers provide a cleaner form of heating that produces fewer dust particles and allergens. Unlike forced-air systems, the heat radiating from the boiler meets already existing air. This is in contrast to a forced-air system where new air is pushed out through ductwork. This new air, which is now circulating throughout your home, is oftentimes laden with dust and allergens now infiltrating your indoor air.
Quieter Operation – Noise is a common complaint of forced-air systems. There could be banging or clanging when a furnace kicks on. The air pushing through ductwork and circulating out from vents can also be loud. Any noise from a boiler heating system is confined inside the boiler itself. Otherwise, the system is practically silent.
Higher-Quality Heat for Optimum Comfort – Rather than forced-air heat, which travels through the ductwork then out of a vent, a radiator’s heat actually infuses the room. The result is heat that’s more evenly dispersed with a different and fresher feeling than the heat from a forced-air system.
User-Friendly Programming and Zoning – Many Utica boiler systems are compatible with programmable thermostats and other special features. For instance, different heating zones can be set throughout your home or automated/auto-stop heat delivery can be programmed.
Easier to Maintain – Utica boilers can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years to several decades. It’s all a matter of how well the unit is maintained. For an extended lifespan or optimal efficiency, a unit will need regular inspections, maintenance, and the occasional part replacement. Top Notch is here for service and repairs for Utica boilers in Pittsburgh.
MGB Series II/MGC Series
The Utica MGB Series II/MGC Series, designed specifically for chimney-vent applications, comes in nine different sizes ranging from 50 MBH to 299 MBH. These boiler systems are incredibly energy efficient with AFUE ratings up to 83.9%. Newer designs include a Honeywell Control that monitors water temperature and pauses the start of the burner until residual heat reaches the system. This maximizes system efficiency. Systems are also space efficient as their overall height is significantly reduced by an Integral Draft Hood & Automatic Vent Damper.
