Difference Between Conventional Boilers & Condensing Boilers
Deciding on the best boiler type for your individual needs can be difficult. However getting the right information can simplify the decision making process and allow you to make the best decision on the best boiler for your budget and property.
In conventional heating systems (gas boilers, for example), heated gases pass through the boiler’s heat exchange surface, transferring the energy generated to the heat distribution system such as the radiators and underfloor heating. After this, combustion gases are released into the atmosphere through the boiler’s flue.
A certain amount of heat is lost because, together with gases, a considerable amount of steam that forms during the burning process is being pushed out. Due to this the released steam carries an untapped amount of evaporation energy. This is where a condensing boiler becomes the smart, energy efficient and cost-effective solution in comparison to conventional boilers as they are capable of transforming the evaporation energy into heat.
What Are the Best Condensing Boiler Types?
There are two main types of condensing boilers: system boilers and combi boilers. A system boiler is a good choice for larger houses or for properties that have low water pressure. The combi boiler is an ideal choice for houses that require heating on demand.
It can be tough to decide between numerous types and manufacturers of boilers, especially when weighing the benefits of paying more for the initial boiler purchase. However the great thing with combi boilers is that although the initial cost may be higher the investment can pay off in time by reducing your energy usage and energy bills.
