In order to get the service you really need for your heating system, it’s important to know the proper terminology. When your heater needs repairs or if you are shopping around for a new one, you should be able to identify whether you are thinking of a boiler or a furnace.
Don’t worry; it’s not uncommon to confuse the two. Sometimes, you get so used to hearing one term or the other, the differences may not occur to you. Or, you may move from a relatively warm climate to somewhere homeowners have all kinds of different systems in place.
