Boilers in Denver, Boulder, Henderson, and Surrounding Areas
Modern heating technologies are leaps and bounds ahead of primitive heating options, and there is no better example than the boiler. Also known as a condensing furnace, boilers are now becoming the norm in most homes in the United States. Let’s look at a few of the reasons why a boiler should be your furnace replacement choice if you find yourself needing to install a new heating system in your home.
Regular furnaces use heat exchangers to generate heat, but the majority of the heat created is lost to combustion, which leaves through the chimney instead of going into your home. Condensing units use a secondary heat exchanger, which collects the wasted heat in order to maximize the unit’s operating efficiency. The exchanger cools the exhaust gases down and sends latent heat that is given away during gas vaporization throughout the home.
Increased AFUE Ratings
Generally, furnaces that are designated as condensing setups reach high efficiency ratings. The industry makes use of AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) ratings in order to assign efficiency tags to various furnace models. Without a condensing unit, the operating efficiency of a furnace cannot hit 90-percent AFUE, but boilers with condensing units can easily hit the 90-percent AFUE mark, saving you an extraordinary amount of money on your monthly utility bill!
Condensing furnaces or boilers need drainage. Though condensing furnaces provide unique benefits such as substantial energy savings, flexible installation, and safety, they require a space that will allow them to drain in order to get rid of the system-generated moisture. Secondary heat exchanger lets the gases cool, however, the vapor creates excessive additional moisture. Therefore, the condensing unit needs a safe drainage setup for routing the moisture out of the heating system safely, and to negate moisture-induced damage to the house.
Just like any other investment, it is highly important to protect the new boiler in your home from the time it’s installed until it’s time to replace it many years down the road. Consumers must carefully choose the best furnace type for their homes and ensure that an HVAC technician is on site to assist with the design and installation of the system.
