Condensing boilers offer an energy saving solution for heating your home. The condensing boiler captures much of the heat which would usually escape through the flue and re uses it. This method helps your heating system get more energy from the same amount of fuel.
A condensing boiler is a feature which can be attributed to combi boilers or a conventional boiler. The benefits offered by installing a condensing boiler are energy efficiency and savings on your fuel bills as a result.
Since 2005, all new gas boiler installations will be condensing boilers except in exceptional circumstances.
Combi boilers or combination boilers offer a heating system that heats the hot water throughout the house and also provides the central heating on demand.
Because the combi boiler connects directly to the water mains, there is no reduction in water pressure after long periods of use and there is no need to install a water cylinder in the attic.
Combi boilers are perfect for homes with limited space as they fit easily into a storage cupboard or the kitchen. You will also save on the space required for a water tank.
Combi boilers are currently the most popular type of boiler installation in Lancashire and the UK.
Conventional boilers require a water tank and a cylinder. If you are installing a conventional boiler into your home, you will need to consider where there is space available for the cylinder and tank.
A conventional boiler heating system offers hot water from multiple taps at the same time but once the hot water has run out you will need to wait for extra water to be re heated.
conventional boilers are most suitable for homes or businesses which require hot water to be available from more than one place at the same time.
System boilers or sealed system require a water cylinder but no water tank. A system boiler allows you to have hot water provided to multiple taps at the same time and offers a space saving advantage oner conventional boilers as it does not require a water tank to be installed.
Installing a system boiler will require waiting for your water to heat up before it is ready for use and once it runs out you will need to re heat it.
Energy Efficient Boilers
The energy efficiency of a boiler is rated between A and G. The most fuel efficient boilers are rated A whilst the least efficient are rated G. All new boilers installed after 2010 must be at least 88% efficient or be A-rated.
All boilers are assessed and rated for energy efficiency by the SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK) system. SEDBUK allow you to assess the fuel efficiency of your existing boiler and to compare the new boilers available.
