For most domestic central heating requirements in Shrewsbury and elsewhere in Shropshire a more than 90% efficient condensing “combi” boiler and domestic hot water package, is the perfect solution to all your hot water needs. Its space-saving wall hung design provides high efficient heating for all Salop household needs, including hot water and radiant systems for heating the home. Ample domestic hot water production and space heating are provided when the boiler is sized correctly for your Shropshire home providing a supply for showers and washing the dishes while eliminating the need for a separate storage tank.
Central Heating and Boiler Basics
Natural gas*, supplied to the home by an underground main line, is fed through a small pipe leading into your home. When the thermostat triggers the boiler to heat the house, a valve opens, releasing the natural gas into a combustion chamber in the form of small jets. An electric spark ignites the fuel. The fire heats the water-filled pipes that circulate through your home. The pipes connect to a radiator where the heated water emits heat energy into the room. Once the heat is exhausted into the air, the cooled water returns through the pipes leading back to the boiler to be reheated and circulated again.
- – Other fuels such as Oil, Biomass and LPG may be used, but the principle is the same for all.
Boiler inspection, servicing, and maintenance is essential as modern heating systems are quite complex and the malfunctioning of any component may cause the whole system to stop working.
Worst of all failure of heating is most likely to occur when the system is working the hardest, on the coldest days of winter, unless it is properly serviced. Don’t make it more likely that you will shiver! Get your boiler inspection done annually!
Boiler Servicing - Essential Tips and Ideas
Oil fired condensing boilers are just starting to be used in the United States. There are some obstacles to overcome and some great advantages to condensing oil technology.
One of the main reasons that they have not been used more is because of the lack of low-sulphur heating oil being readily available. A condensing oil boiler must burn the low-sulphur heating oil for it to work properly. As more and more of these units are sold in different areas of the US the right fuels will become more readily available.
Modern oil condensing boilers can save you as much as 30% more energy than many conventional boilers. A modern oil condensing boiler will not only heat more efficiently, but because of this it will reduce your heating oil consumption. When low-sulphur heating oil or heating oil with biogenic additives are used in an oil condensing boiler, it then becomes almost as environmentally friendly as using natural gas.
If your boiler is more than 15 years old, replacing it with a new condensing boiler, of the right heat output for your property size, should save you around a third on your heating oil bills. If you plan to install a new boiler or to replace an existing one, in some cases you will need to install a condensing boiler to meet today's higher standards for energy efficiency required under many building codes. Today's new boilers are not only smaller, neater, they also take up less space, Therefore they are much more energy efficient and therefore use less fuel to produce the same amount of BTU's. A typical conventional boiler burns fuel in a combustion chamber that is surrounded by a water jacket. Condensing boilers also extract the heat from the products of combustion using a secondary heat exchanger.
A condensing combi boiler is a boiler that will heat your home and provide you with instantaneous hot water, without adding a hot water tank. Most of these boilers use a coil that is immersed in the hot water inside the boiler. The cold water is run through the coil and the heat is transferred from the boiler water to the domestic water. These boilers make the production of your hot water very efficient also.
Condensing oil boilers basically are not that much different than conventional boilers. They just are designed so that they reduce the flue gases temperature to the point where the water vapor in the exhaust is cooled to the point where it condenses. This condensing feature also releases the latent heat in the flue gases. This heat is also collected and used to heat you home.
Condensing boilers are not only a great deal for new construction, but they can also be used to upgrade many old heating systems. They are nearly the same size as older boilers and in some cases they are smaller. The piping may have to be reconfigured a bit, but a good contractor can fit an oil fired condensing boiler easily into any system. You gain will be a highly efficient and comfortable heating system.
