If you own a more uncommon type of heater, then you’re probably aware of how frustrating it can be to try and find a company who offers repair services for your particular equipment. That’s not a problem when you reach out to the Rinnai service experts at John Owens Services, Inc. We offer services for all different types of heating units, including condensing boilers—an ultra-efficient and effective type of boiler system. Condensing boilers offer outstanding heating and durability without the same amount of heat loss as conventional boilers. As a result, you’ll save money when you have your boiler working smoothly and effectively throughout the heating season.
What sets a condensing boiler apart from a conventional boiler? Both function on essentially the same premise—using a heat source to boil water that is then sent throughout your home to different radiators for heating. However, condensing and conventional boilers are different in that condensing boilers tend to be significantly more efficient. With a standard boiler, much of the heat that’s produced is actually immediately lost into the atmosphere in the form of exhaust. In a condensing boiler, the heat that your burner produces is kept in your condensing coils. The water that returns from your heating elements is then fed through this condensing system, where it picks up some of this residual heat. This means you need less fuel to keep the water flowing through your boiler system at the proper temperature and thus you save a pretty significant amount of money on your energy bills.
Condensing boilers actually get their name from their condenser coils, which, as their name implies, can actually have water and moisture condense on them as they heat the returned water. This condensed water is sent away from your boiler using a drain line, similar to your condensation drain line on your air conditioning system.
We fix all types of issues with condensing boilers, including:
Condensing boilers are actually incredibly similar to a regular boiler with one key difference—the presence of the aforementioned condenser unit. A condensing boiler collects water from a return line or from a main water connection and then feeds the water through a condensing grid. This heats the water a first time before sending it to your heat exchanger where it absorbs the remainder of the heat it needs. The water then flows back out through your boiler system and makes its way back to your radiators.
The heat in your system typically is created by a gas-powered burner located at the bottom of your boiler. The burner then sends this heat up to your heat exchangers, usually via forced air created by a blower fan. Whereas this air then usually leaves a conventional boiler through the exhaust system, the air in a condenser boiler then heats condenser coils before leaving via the exhaust system.
