A boiler doesn’t just heat water. It boils it. It turns water into steam.
Steam is light, cheap and a safe medium in which to transport heat from where it is generated to where it is needed. Steam is denser than air, so it can hold more heat than just air alone. It's also lighter than water, so it takes less effort to move.
Steam can also be used for a number of different things, such as heating the air in a forced air heating system, or the floor in a radiant heating system. The steam can even be used for cleaning carpets and floors, as well as to heat water for general use.

There are several advantages to boilers that make them superior to traditional heating systems. For one, with a boiler you have one system where you used to have two. Instead of a water heater and heating system, you have a boiler that’s capable of doing both. Boilers have also gained popularity in recent years with people looking to make their homes greener.
Boilers that burn wood, corn pellets and other renewable fuels have become available, and, with financing, can be affordably paid for with the savings in fuel costs they allow. Boilers are also highly efficient thanks to the fact that they are a closed loop system. Once most of the heat is extracted from the steam, the steam turns back into water and falls back down the pipes to the boiler where it is boiled again. When it arrives, the water is already fairly warm, so the boiler only has to give it a nudge to boil it again. The result is high efficiency.
There are two general styles of boiler systems that are used for steam production; namely fire-tube and water-tube. Both types of boilers can produce steam, super-heated steam or hot water (also known as a hydronic boiler).
Fire-tube boilers are generally used for lower volume steam generation and are typically best suited for applications such as space & process heating.
