High Efficiency Boilers Waste Little Energy

Hot Water Boilers

To be efficient is ideal. The best feeling to me is killing two birds with one stone, so to speak. Socializing while exercising, packing and organizing and surfing the web and listening to music are all ways that I can multi-task and make the best use of my time. A different way I am able to “kill two birds with one stone” is by cleaning and throwing away unwanted items while recycling or reusing other items. This is both time effective and helping the environment. Highly efficient boilers do the same thing, they reuse water as wall as utilize less electricity than conventional boilers.

High efficiency boilers are tanks that are able to transfer thermal energy to water or steam and then reuse excess heat. In conventional boilers the excess heat would be considered wasted energy and would exit the vessel through the flue. The most efficient boilers are from 80 percent to 97 percent efficient, meaning that 20 percent down to only 3 percent of its energy is wasted. The most efficient boiler is a condensing boiler.

High efficiency boilers are found in any application where hot water or heat is required: schools, factories, manufacturing facilities, offices and more. High efficiency boilers require a lot less fuel than conventional boilers; therefore, high efficiency boilers are better for the environment as well as the bank account. Even though high efficiency boilers cost more money at the beginning of its purchase and installation, the savings accumulated from energy use and fuel costs is a good return on your investment in the long run.

High efficiency boilers are normally made of cast iron, aluminum, stainless steel or steel. They normally have dual heat exchangers and sealed combustion. The efficiency of boilers is rated by their annual fuel utilization efficiency reading, a measurement of the appliance’s fuel use over a year.
