How does a boiler unit heater work?
A unit heater is controlled by a thermostat that turns on when the room needs heat. When the thermostat senses the need for heat, it turns on the fan motor; the fan blows air over the finned heat exchanger which warms the flowing air and raises the air temperature in the room.
What is the difference between a unit heater and a boiler?
A unit heater heats air by blowing air with a fan through a “Water-to-Air” heat exchanger. A boiler heats water by transferring the heat from a fuel source into the water. Water is a very efficient way to transfer heat from the heat source (boiler) to the location where the heat is needed.
Is boiler heat expensive?
Boiler heat is one of the most efficient ways to heat.
Are unit heaters expensive?
