Replacing you existing boiler with a high efficiency boiler, can be a great decision. While they will last a long time, in some instances more than 20 years, the benefits of high efficiency boilers may compel you to think about replacing yours sooner rather than later.
The operating costs of high-efficiency boilers are considerably lower than conventional boilers. Seasonal efficiencies in the range of 85% to 95% are possible. The seasonal efficiency of conventional boilers may be 55% to 65%.
Benefits of High Efficiency Boilers?
In older boilers, there is a pilot light that runs all the time. Newer models have an electronic ignition that only starts when needed. Also, the inefficient boilers used a draft method of ventilation, and the more efficient models have a ventilation system that is mechanically assisted. The newest models preheat the cold water entering the boiler with the waste heat in the flue gases, which makes the system even more efficient, hardly wasting any fuel at all.
