What is a Condensing Boiler?


By ProMatcher Staff



Condensing Boilers



A condensing boiler is a high-efficiency heating unit. A boiler is typically the central feature of a hydronic heating system. A condensing boiler can recover energy that typically exits your home as waste through a chimney or exhaust vent. These boilers can condense water vapor back into liquid water. This process causes the release of heat that can be used to preheat colder water that is about to enter the boiler.

A condensing boiler has increased energy efficiency because it makes use of a heat that is typically exhausted as waste.

All condensing boilers should have AFUE ratings of over 90%.
