Condensing boilers are commonly referred to as 'high efficiency' boilers. This is because they convert a minimum of 88% of their fuel into heat. This compares to 78% for conventional (or non-condensing) boilers, where more of the heat generated is wasted by being vented with the gases via the flue.
Condensing boilers normally use a heat exchange system to recover heat from gases in the flue, usually reducing the temperature of these gases by two thirds.
Because condensing boilers are more efficient they do not need to be 'on' as often. Furthermore, they are working harder when they are on.
You can save even more with a new heating control that will react to changes in room temperature and automatically provide different levels of heat throughout your home.
Use far less energy and get far more heat where you want it in your home - not wasted up the boiler flue.
This all helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions but will also save you a lot of money. In fact installing a high efficiency condensing boiler and heating control will cut your heating bills by up to two thirds! As most boilers will last at least 10-15 years, you will soon recover the cost of the new equipment and installation.
Condensing boilers can be easily fitted to most domestic central heating systems. Get in touch to find out more.
