Natural gas is the most common fuel for fired boilers in the USA. It is easily accessible resource and a cheaper heating fuel. Natural gas burns more completely than fuel, which means your furnace can be more efficient. A gas line already runs near most homes and unlike liquid propane or oil fuels you don’t need a truck to deliver it to your house! Homeowners have the option to heat their home and provide hot water with the same unit throughout their home.

How it Works
Natural gas is generally supplied by a main line near your home and is fed through a small pipe leading into your home. When the thermostat calls for heat, a valve opens and releases natural gas into the boilers combustion chamber, in the form of small jets. An electric spark then ignites the fuel. The fire heats the heat exchanger, which in turn, transfers the heat to the water. The water is piped to radiators throughout the house, where the warmth is radiated into the room. The cooled water then returns to the boiler to be reheated and circulated again. Annual inspections and tune-up of your heating equipment is highly recommended to keep your boiler running at peak efficiency.
