A boiler is an appliance used to heat water for some common heating systems (hydronic heating systems). These systems use the hot water from the boiler to spread the heat throughout the space by piping it into different rooms and dispersing the heat through various types of radiators. Once the radiator is heated with the hot water, the water is returned to the boiler to be re-heated and then the circulation can continue. Though rare in Arizona, boilers need general maintenance and periodic repairs in order to keep them functioning well. With proper care, these units can last for many years.
