What are the Advantages of a Condensing Boiler?
A condensing boiler is a much more efficient appliance than its previous counterparts. It is made more efficient by collecting and reusing heat that would otherwise have been lost. In older boilers, gas is released through a flue and straight into the atmosphere – a condensing boiler uses a heat exchanger to capture that heat and recycle it back into the system.
How Efficient is a Condensing Boiler?
Whilst conventional boilers can only reach 70-80% efficiency, condensing manufacturers such as Vaillant claim over 90% efficiency rates, making them a much more environmentally sound option. Key advantages include lower fuel consumption, carbon emissions, and energy bills.
Who are Condensing Boilers for?
Condensing boilers are a versatile and trusted method of heating a commercial or industrial property. They can either stand alone or work together as part of a cascade, depending on the size of the area that needs to be heated.
A cascade would typically be used for more significant properties such as schools, hospitals, and hotels. Of course, the more boilers working together, the more significant the long-term savings for your business.
An example of a cascading system is a recent industrial gas boiler replacement in an engineering warehouse in Swansea. Five Vaillant boilers, accompanied by modern controls, were fitted to save our client over 30% in annual energy costs.
