How A New Boiler Is More Efficient

January 21, 2022

Are you searching for ways to lower your Lusby, MD, energy usage without sacrificing heating? If it takes more than a few minutes for your boiler to heat up, it heats unevenly, or the boiler is older than 15 years old, a new condensing boiler for your home will deliver more reliable and efficient heating.

Modern Boilers Are Condensing

Traditional boilers heat the system’s water using natural gas or propane and vent to a chimney flue or vent pipe. They also operate at higher temperatures, which affects their efficiency rates. The average efficiency rate of an older boiler is 80-85 percent.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient than older models because of their superior heat recovery. These boilers heat the water by taking heat from the exhaust flue gas instead of from sources outside of the venting system. This heating method allows the boiler to operate at lower temperatures resulting in reduced energy consumption. When you install a new condensing boiler system, you can expect to achieve an energy efficiency of 90% or more.

Make Sure to Choose the Right Size

Before scheduling boiler installation, a technician should recommend the correct size system for your home. Oversized boiler systems might seem like a good idea, but installing a too-big boiler for your house wastes energy, and the operating costs increase canceling out any potential energy savings. Systems too big for your home not only waste fuel, but they’re also prone to short-cycling and more likely to experience a significant decline in lifespan. The best way to determine the right boiler size for your home is to hire a heating contractor who will do the following:

  • Assess your home’s size
  • Determine it’s level of insulation
  • Perform heat loss calculations

If your heating system leaves much to be desired, you’ll enjoy the comfort and energy efficiency that a new condensing boiler provides.
