Using a boiler to heat your home is not as popular as a forced air system, however it requires the same maintenance as a forced air system. It too used gas or oil to heat the water being circulated through the pipes. This also requires attention as to the combustion cycle burning cleanly.
It also requires the heat exchanger to be cleaned regularly so as to allow proper exchange of heat to the water circuit. If it is a cast iron boiler this will require the passages to cleaned with a brush to remove any combustion buildup on the castings. Even many high efficiency 90+ boilers need yearly maintenance to keep it combustion passage free of buildup.
Many years ago energy was cheap and the feeling was “bigger is better”, this philosophy in many homes has created uncomfortable hot and cool periods during the heating and cooling seasons. During operation with over sized equipment it has short run times creating uneven temperatures in the home making it feel hot then cold or vise versa.
This has also created an increase of energy in the amount of fuel used and electricity to turn it on and off more often than needed.
A properly sized unit will have longer run cycles allowing conditioned air to be more evenly distributed through out the home before shutting down. This longer run cycle will also make it less hot/cold between cycle times.
