“With maximum efficiency ratings in the range of 96%, condensing boilers are becoming a popular choice for building owners looking for improved energy efficiency, reduced operating cost and lower GHG emissions. Many owners, however, are not aware of the technology behind condensing boilers and the conditions required for achieving their rated efficiency. Mismatching the boiler with the heating system requirements can result in operating conditions that do not achieve the potential of condensing boilers.”
Learn about how get the most out of your efficient boiler from a recent article by Prism Engineering’s principal and founder, Brian O’Donnell, published in the Winter 2014 issue of Mechanical Contractors Association of BC Magazine. He outlines several strategies for existing facilities that decrease the supply and return water temperature requirements, thereby improving condensing efficiencies.
