Boiler Installation in Milwaukee

When it’s time to have a new heating system installed or replaced, your options are Geothermal, Boiler, or Furnace.  They all have pros and cons, and our residential heating experts can help you decide which is best – but in the meantime, let’s learn the basics:

  • A Furnace heats air and distributes it throughout the home or business using a blower motor and duct system.  Depending on the size of your home or business, multiple systems may be necessary.
  • A Boiler system distributes hot water through small hot water pipes using a pump to heat baseboard, radiators, and even radiant flooring systems.
  • Geothermal heat systems use energy from the earth to heat your home or business.
Pros and Cons include things like cost to operate, equipment cost, carbon footprint, noise, comfort, and more.  Can’t Decide? Contact Capital Heating & Cooling for a professional opinion.
