Condensing Boiler Installation
Wirral Plumbers install condensing boilers in Liverpool, Wirral and right across Merseyside. A condensing boiler is a highly energy-efficient water heater, fuelled by gas or oil, with considerably lower running costs than a conventional boiler. Condensing boilers achieve high efficiency by condensing water vapour in the exhaust gases and therefore recovering it’s heat, which would otherwise be wasted.
In the UK, since 2005 it has been mandatory for all new boiler installations to be condensing boilers. This includes boiler replacements.
The Advantages Of Installing A Condensing Boiler
Condensing boilers don’t need a hot water tank. They also come in a range of compact sizes making them more convenient to fit somewhere like a kitchen cupboard.
Unlimited Hot Water
Condensing boilers generate hot water on demand. They don’t rely on a hot water tank. This means you don’t have to worry about making sure there is enough hot water for the whole family to shower in the morning.
All new condensing boilers are fitted with a heat exchange made from stainless steel, so it doesn’t corrode over time.
What Is The Difference Between A Non-Condensing & A Condensing Boiler?
A condensing boiler operates in the same manner as a non-condensing boiler; having a single heat exchanger chamber where hot gases from the burner heat the water. However, before the hot gases reach the exit flue, they go through a secondary stainless steel heat exchanger.
The secondary stainless steel heat exchanger is the main difference between condensing and non-condensing boilers. This secondary heat exchanger lengthens the heat transfer time by increasing the surface area for good heat transfer of gases & water. The result of this is, it can give an increase in efficiency up to perhaps an average of 92%. A condensing boiler captures what would be wasted heat in a condensing boiler. By using the heat in the flue gas to preheat the cold water running into the boiler, boosting the efficiency of the boiler.
