Gas Boiler Systems

There are many different types of boilers that you are able to choose from when trying to heat up the building you are living or working in and trying to find something that will heat up the water. One of the more common choices is the gas boiler system.

This type of boiler does not run continually. While the temperature is low the electricity will run to the boiler through the use of a special switch. While this switch is able to be turned on manually, in most units it will turn itself on automatically through the use of the thermostat. The thermostat will flip the switch when it reaches a specific temperature.

At the time the switch has been turned on the electricity will begin to run through the boiler and a valve inside will be opened. This opening will trigger the gas and allow it to enter into the combustion chamber through several jet openings. When this occurs the electric ignition system will light up the gas.

The heat from the gas that is burning will than be transferred to the heat exchange system inside. This system is made up of a set of pipes that hold water. The water is heated when the pipes begin to get warm.

The water that has been heated from these pipes will be circulated through another set of pipes that extend throughout the whole building. In most buildings these pipes are connected to several radiators in each of the rooms.

When the hot water is traveling through the radiators some of the heat from that water will be sent into the room to provide warmth. The air inside of the room will become warm because of the heat and the temperature will begin to rise.

Once the water has passed through the radiators, it will be cooler than what it was when it first left the boiler. The cooled water will be sent back inside of the unit and will repeat the cycle.
