We have homes full of appliances that most of us probably don’t really understand. Some appliances have so many features and functions, that we probably only use half of what that appliance is capable of! One incredible appliance that deserves more love is the humble home boiler.
Your gas boiler is a wonderful thing. It’s a great thing that your gas boiler is hidden in the cabinet, quietly doing the job it was told to by the timer, or even an application on your smartphone. Have you ever wondered what it is and how it works? Getting the appliance put in correctly is vitally important and it’s better to know what your boiler does before you ask for help. That way, you won’t appear like an idiot when the repairman comes around.
Gas boilers are designed to heat water for radiators. It’s easy to see why. Natural gas is used to heat the water which is a big improvement over the old situation when we burned coal and wood. They produced a lot of smoke and were environmentally unfriendly. Natural gas may not be the best option as it’s a finite fossil fuel, but it does not produce any stinky smoke inside the home.
The water needs a place to radiate heat when it is heated. The clue in that sentence might have led you to believe that this water is going into the radiators. They can be mounted on the wall and even come in different styles and designs for the arty type. The hot water in them warms the radiators to the touch. This heat radiates or spreads through the entire room leaving you feeling toasty on a cold wintery day.

We know the boiler uses natural gas to heat the water and that it goes into the radiators, but how? Once the water reaches the desired temperature in the tank it starts to flow into the radiators through a network of pipes behind walls and under floors, for example. The water pump is one of the key components of the system. The water will not flow without it so if you have problems with your pump, your home won’t be feeling very cosy!
