Condensing Boilers

condensing boilersNew Condensing boilers are estimated to be 91% efficient in contrast to an efficiency of around 70%-80% for older, non-condensing boilers.

Condensing boilers are able to convert more fuel into usable heat which increases efficiency overall.

The benefits of this type of boiler include a reduction in running costs and lower CO² emissions which is great for the environment. As of April 2005 it became law that the installation of all new gas boilers should be high efficiency condensing boilers.

Is my Boiler a High-Efficiency Condensing type?

If you bought your new boiler and it was installed within the last few years then it is highly likely that your appliance is condensing. However, if your appliance is older, then it`s probable you may have a non-condensing standard efficiency boiler.

Should I replace my Boiler?

If your boiler is at least ten to fifteen years old, then it is unlikely to be a condensing boiler. Replacing the old boiler with a new and much more efficient condensing boiler is going to save you around a third off your heating bills each year.

Gas Condensing Boilers

Condensing boilers are not a new type of boiler on the market, in fact they are rather a more high-efficiency version of your current boiler if it is of the older style.

Gas Condensing Boilers are by far the most popular type of boiler due to the prevalance of Natural Gas. LPG Condensing Boilers are also available.

Also available are:

  • Gas Condensing Combination Boilers
  • Gas Condensing System Boilers
  • Gas Condensing Heating Boilers.

There is lots of choice available for consumers buying Gas Condensing Boilers.

Leading manufacturers include Potterton, Vaillant, Glow-worm, Worcester Bosch and Ideal Boilers.
