All About Condensing Boilers

Whether you are looking for a new boiler for your new home or are just looking to upgrade what you already own, deciding on any boiler is a big decision. The type of boiler that you own is going to determine how much hot water you have, whether the hot water is continuous, and the level of space that is needed to heat your water. One very popular option in terms of water heaters are condensing boilers. Condensing boilers are one of the most efficient options that you can implement in your home. To ensure that you are making the right decision, below is an overview of this type of boiler.

How it Works
Condensing boilers are an interesting type of boiler because they do not operate in the traditional way. The condensing boiler works by capturing heat that would evaporate from a traditional boiler and using the captured heat to heat the water that you need for your home. As a result, this type of boiler doesn’t waste energy, but reuses energy that is already being used in your home. This ultimately leads to lower energy bills and a much more convenient heating system.

Type of Fuel
This type of boiler comes in two standard options and those options are based upon which fuel you are using to heat the water. For instance, you can choose from either a gas or oil operated condensing boiler. Neither option is particularly better than the other nor regardless of which do you choose, you’ll still find yourself achieving the highly efficient water heating standards that you are looking for. The main thing to keep in mind with this type of boiler compared to other boilers is that a condensing boiler, while highly efficient, may be the least reliable type of boiler to use in your home.

The Other Advantage
If you choose this boiler, you also can look forward to saving space. The boiler is easy to maneuver in your home and it has a nice compact size so that you don’t need to worry about wasting space like you would with a traditional type of boiler. Furthermore, while you may have a higher upfront cost with this boiler system, the money you’ll save in your home energy bills will easily make up for the difference and even save you more money in the long term. Overall, it is a great option for anyone.
