Answer: "Usually there are two types of boilers ""fire tube"" and ""water tube"". Boilers are classified as ""high-pressure"" or ""low-pressure"" and ""steam boiler"" or ""hot water boiler."" Boilers that operate higher than 15 psig are called ""high-pressure"" boilers. A hot water boiler, strictly speaking, is not a boiler. It is a fuel-fired hot water heater."
