Condensing technology is now applied to almost all new boilers. But how do condensing boilers work? And what are the advantages of condensing boilers? Here at K and M Maintenance, we are Preston’s leading boiler and gas experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of condensing boilers.

How does a condensing boiler work?

Condensing boilers are incredibly efficient. Especially when compared to previous, older, boilers. But how do they work? And what makes them so efficient?

Utilising a much larger heat exchanger, condensing boilers can recycle 90% of wast heat. This wasted heat energy is produced when burning fuel, and while it used to simply be released through the waste pipe, it is now re-used to heat your home. As a result, your home will stay warmer for longer, and you will use less fuel achieving the desired optimal temperature.

So what are the advantages of condensing boilers?

advantages of condensing boilers

  • environmentally friendly- a condensing boiler is much more environmentally friendly when compared to older boiler models. Because of the technology, a condensing boiler releases less gas into the atmosphere.
  • Efficient- a condensing boiler is more efficient as it can reheat waste gases to continue to power your system, without burning more fuel. Again, this also makes it more environmentally friendly.
  • cost efficient- a condensing boiler is also cost efficient. This is because it needs to use less fuel to heat your home, and as a result, you will save money on energy bills. In fact, a highly efficient condensing boiler could help you save up to £300 a year!

In summary

Condensing boilers use modern technology to provide an efficient and effective heating solution. There are several advantages of condensing boilers. These include being environmentally friendly, being fuel efficient, and being cost efficient. Here at K and M Maintenance, we are boiler and gas specialists.
