Cleveland House owners: Are you looking for a Boiler/Forced-Air Furnace

By Cleveland HVAC Contractors

Cleveland homeowners might need to replace their heating system.

An efficient way to heat your house is with a furnace or boiler. We'll take a closer look at the differences between hot water boilers, forced air furnaces, and hot water furnaces.

Hot water boilers can do more than provide hot water to your family. Radiators and pipes heat the water to create heat that radiates throughout your house to heat floors, walls, and baseboards.

Different boiler designs use different energy sources to heat water. But, oil boilers are more efficient and costlier.

Types and uses

There is a variety of options to heat your home with a boiler.

  • Regular - A standard boiler heats up quickly because it uses two tanks to store cold water, and one to hold hot.
  • Sealed Boiler - This sealed boiler is designed for homes between 1000 and 2500 square feet. The boiler heats water within one cylinder so there is no need to have separate water tanks.
  • Hydronic boilers-Water is heated using hydronic coils. Next, it is forced through a sealed system that includes radiators throughout your house. The hydronic boiler can heat your home in a quiet, comfortable manner.
  • Radiator heater boilers - Many older houses still have radiators with hot water or steam heating.

Installation and cost

A boiler heater's cost will vary depending on its kind. It can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000. Installation of a boiler heater will cost you anywhere from $3500 to $8,000.

The annual cost of operation

Your fuel choice will impact the cost of running a boiler.

  • Electricity - 500
  • Natural gas - $240
  • Oil - $500


Don't forget maintenance costs when you upgrade your heating system.

Furnace. Forced air heating

The furnace heating system uses an exchanger to heat air and then circulate the air through ducts with a fan. To adjust the temperature, slatted registrations are located in every room.

Types and uses

There is a wide range of furnace Cleveland types available.

  • Gas furnace - A gas stove is a safe and effective way to heat your house. This heating method uses natural gas from an underground pipe in your neighborhood. It's reliable and inexpensive.
  • An electric furnace - Heat is produced by using electricity to heat the air.
  • Propane oils and diesel – Both propane and diesel furnaces have fuel tanks that need to be refilled. First, a pilot light heats the air. Next, a fan blows through the heating vents.

Installation and cost

There are many options for pricing a furnace. You can choose from an electric furnace for $700 or a gas furnace for $1,200.

The annual cost of operation

The costs of operating a furnace vary depending on how much energy you use.

  • Natural gas - $850
  • Electricity - $900
  • Propane fuel - $1,550
  • Oil - $820


As with any appliance in your home, you'll need to budget to repair and maintain it.
