What is the difference between a boiler and a furnace for steam radiators?

On 2015-10-23 wrote:

The easiest way to distinguish the difference is understanding that a furnace uses air and a boiler uses water to distribute heat throughout your home. They both function very differently. The boiler uses hot water or steam to heat your home by distributing heat through small hot water pipes using a pump to heat baseboards, cast iron radiators, or radiant flooring systems. Where a furnace heats air that is distributed throughout the house via a blower motor and the home’s duct system.
