When it comes to your domestic or commercial heating, your boiler is an essential choice. Condensing technology is applied throughout most new boilers, and this has a range of advantages. As a result, if you have an older boiler that is missing this technology, it may be time to make the switch. Here at Charter Heating, we know how important the right boiler is for your home or business. Consequently, we have produced this guide to the advantages of condensing boilers.
What is a condensing boiler?
Incredibly efficient, a condensing boiler has a much larger heat exchanger than a traditional boiler. This means that a condensing boiler can actually recycle 90% of the heat that would otherwise be wasted.
When your boiler burns fuel, waste heat energy is produced, and this is generally released through the waste pipe. However, with a condensing boiler, this heat now passes back through the system, drawing as much energy from the waste products as possible. This means that a condensing boiler is very energy efficient.
The advantages of condensing boilers
There are several advantages of this technology, including:
- The environment- Clearly a boiler that re-uses waste and produces much less waste, is a huge advantage to the environment. It means that less waste gases will be released into the atmosphere, and it also means that you will need to use less fuel. This means that our limited natural resources will be less compromised.
- Cost efficiency- A boiler that is more efficient and uses less fuel to heat your home will definitely be more cost effective than your traditional boiler. As a result, it could lead to savings of £300 a year on your energy bills.
