The main difference between a furnace and a boiler is how they operate. A furnace heats air, which is then pushed through duct work by a blower motor to heat the house. A boiler heats water and then uses a pump to distribute it through a network of pipes to heat the home through radiators, baseboard, or radiant flooring.
