Boilers for heating homes are common in some areas. Not here in Georgia, where I live, but my friends in the colder climates have them.
This type of heating equipment takes a fuel like natural gas or fuel oil, burns it to create heat, and then puts that heat into water circulating through the distribution system. Since it's called a boiler, naturally it must be heating the incoming water up to the boiling point and creating steam. Right?
