The Benefits of Installing a Condensing Combi Boiler
A Condensing Combi Boiler is a great heating system upgrade option. It takes its water supply directly from the water main and produces heating and hot water for your home from one compact unit. A combi boiler with the addition of a Flue Gas Heat Recovery System becomes a condensing unit. This makes it a condensing combi boiler.
The Advantages of Condensing Boilers
There are many advantages to condensing boilers that make them a better alternative to non-condensing ones, including lower energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint.
A conventional boiler will usually project excess heat from its flue into the atmosphere. A condensing boiler recovers much of this waste heat and uses it efficiently. A condensing design uses an extra-large heat exchanger. During the condensing process, the heat exchanger maximizes heat transfer from the burner. The heat given by the flue gases is then recovered by the heat exchanger, effectively recycling the energy.
Condensing boilers significantly reduce carbon emissions. You can save up to 1,200 kg of carbon a year by installing one in your home. This makes condensing boilers eligible for grants, which can help you cover the installation costs.
A Safer Boiler for Your Home
Condensing boilers are perfectly sealed for heat insulation. They capture air directly from the outside of the room they are placed in, so there is no risk of anything being sucked into the boiler. There is also no risk of being in contact with toxic substances, since the condensed liquid is disposed of via a pipe connected to the drainage system.
The Boilers Are More Space Efficient
Condensing combi boilers are more space-efficient since they do not need a full-size water tank. They are typically wall-mounted, so your floor stays more spacious!
Increased Energy Efficiency
Condensing boilers are at least 25% more efficient than non-condensing models. Condensing boilers can capture up to 11% more heat than non-condensing boilers, reaching up to 99% efficiency.
Condensing boilers help lower fuel bills and reduce your carbon footprint. This makes them a great alternative to conventional heating systems.
While newer non-condensing boilers may reach up to 78% efficiency, (which is the percentage of heat that is actually usable) old boilers usually do not reach over 55-65% efficiency.
