Condensing Boiler Optimization Offering High Efficiency Gains

Optimizing hot water systems with condensing boilers

Consulting-Specifying Engineer, December 15, 2013

Learning objectives

  1. Understand the differences between condensing and noncondensing boilers
  2. Understand the cost implications of boiler initial investment costs for various boiler configurations
  3. Learn top tips for designing a hot water system with condensing boilers.

Hydronic hot water heating systems circulate hot water throughout a building to heat its air and come in varying shapes, sizes, and configurations.

Boiler selection and traditional hot water systems have been designed to maintain high hot water temperatures, but changes in boiler technology allow efficiency gains to be achieved by using lower water temperatures and condensing boilers.
