What are ENERGY STAR gas boilers?
A boiler heats your home by burning natural gas to heat water that circulates to wall mounted radiators or radiant floor systems. This type of heating technology distributes radiant heat for your home through a series of insulated pipes to individual rooms, rather than through a forced air duct and vent system. Radiant heat warms objects in the room and your body rather than just the air in the room, providing a comfort you can feel.
