Boilers are used in a hydrolic heating system. They are used to heat water or produce steam and use natural gas, electricity, or oil to do so. A boiler then takes its hot water or gas and circulates it through the pipes. There are two different types of boiler systems a water boiler or an oil boiler. Each system supplies the pipes slightly differently. A water boiler pumps water through the pipes. While an oil system creates steam and navigates its self thought the pipes without being pumped. Both systems how ever are equally and high priced.
