If your boiler is over 10 years old, it may be time to upgrade to a new energy efficient unit as it will save you the boiler troubles later on.
Do you heat your home with a central boiler unit? Think back since the unit you are using is probably old and is most likely be un-safe to use. However boilers over the years have been getting more and more efficient.
After all you don’t want boiler troubles that will leave you in the cold this winter. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about it before the big freeze.
The newer boiler models extract heat from the exhaust fumes produced in the initial process. This is done using a second heat exchanger where the water vapor in the gas condenses into drops of water, releasing heat in the process. The water is then drained away from the boiler using a specially designed pipe. For comparison older boiler models simply expel the gas from the unit, wasting that additional heat.
The newer model comes into two different types, combi or regular boiler. A combi boiler produces heat for your central heating and also heats your water on demand. A regular boiler will heat your home, but, instead of heating your water as necessary, will have a storage tank with hot water ready. Combi boilers are perfect for homeowners looking to save space as they are generally smaller. The lack of a storage tank for hot water also helps this unit save space. A regular boiler system, on the other hand, is a good choice if you use a lot of hot water for multiple usages.
