Boilers and furnaces are two common heating systems that are found in commercial buildings. Although furnaces and boilers both heat spaces, they do it in much different ways.
Boilers use water or steam to create heat. Water is moved through the building using a system of pipes to warm up the building. With a boiler, radiant heat is created so you won’t feel air blowing in the building. Instead, the warm water is pumped through radiators to raise the temperature of the space.
With a furnace heating system, air is pulled from inside the building, heated up and it sent through ductwork to warm the building. Furnaces use forced air to warm a building.
