High-Efficiency Boiler

High-efficiency Boiler Installation in Greater Rochester

High-efficiency boiler installation in Pittsford

Cool technology. A high-efficiency boiler extracts so much heat from fuel that cooler flue gasses can be easily exhausted outside through a plastic pipe instead of through a chimney.

Have you been thinking about getting a new boiler? This can be a smart upgrade if your existing boiler is more than 10 years old.

In a typical house, the energy consumed to heat water for washing or whole-house heating can account for hundreds or even thousands of dollars every year.

Keeping an old boiler in service usually isn’t a good idea –even if the boiler is functioning perfectly. Contact True Energy Solutions if you are in need of a new, high-efficiency boiler for your home in Rochester, Webster, Fairport, Pittsford, Canandaigua, Newark.

High-efficiency boilers offer astonishing performance

An old-style boiler requires a chimney to safely vent hot combustion gasses to the exterior. The heat that indirectly goes up the chimney is wasted heat that doesn’t get used throughout the home. But a high-efficiency boiler extracts nearly all the heat from its fuel.

As a result, exhaust gasses are cool enough to be vented to the exterior through a plastic pipe. For this reason, these high-efficient boilers are also known as “direct-vent” boilers. A “sealed combustion” boiler is a direct-vent boiler that receives its combustion air from the exterior.

  • Most residential boilers are designed to burn oil, propane or natural gas.
  • A boiler can supply hot water for washing, for whole-house heating, or both. Dual-purpose boilers are referred to as “combi-boilers.”
  • The size of a boiler is described by its BTU output. A medium-size boiler might have a 80,000 BTU rating.
  • AFUE (annual fuel use efficiency) is used to describe boiler efficiency. Expressed as a percentage, AFUE tells you how much of the fuel’s heating potential is utilized by the heating appliance.
  • Super-efficient boilers are also known as “direct-vent,” “condensing,” and “sealed-combustion” boilers.

A high efficiency rating is your promise of energy savings

A boiler’s AFUE rating tells you how efficient the boiler is at converting fuel to heat. An old “natural venting” boiler can operate anywhere in the 50% to 80% efficiency range.

The most-efficient sealed combustion boilers can deliver heating efficiency as high as 94%. Replacing an old 60% AFUE boiler with a new 94% AFUE boiler makes a lot of sense, if you plan to stay in your home for more than a few years or would like to live more comfortably.
