For many homes in the Twin Cities area, boiler systems are an integral component of the heating system. Unlike furnaces, these devices use hot water to heat a home (known as a hydronic system) and heat water to approximately 180 degrees before circulating it through pipes. When the heated water meets radiators or radiant tubing, it produces steam and heats your home.
Like other parts of the northern U.S., many homes in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul areas rely on home boiler systems for heat. Given the region’s extended winter season, these systems tend to work harder than usual. Traditional gas boilers are expected to last, at most, 15 years. This means your system could be due for service or a replacement.
