Condensing boilers reman a viable commercial option

Condensing boilers sit at the heart of a large proportion of commercial buildings today. More efficient than traditional boilers, condensing boilers capture and use the heat that would otherwise be lost up the flue, making them both more efficient and cost-effective to operate.

They work by using a process called condensation. This process occurs when water vapour in the flue gases is cooled to the point where it condenses back into water. When this happens, the latent heat of vaporisation is released, which can be used to heat the water in the boiler. The latent heat of vaporisation is the amount of heat that is required to change water from a gas to a liquid. It is a very large amount of heat, and it can be used to significantly increase the efficiency of a boiler. This makes these boilers more efficient than traditional boilers because they are able to capture and use this latent heat of vaporisation. This can lead to excellent efficiency gains, such as with the Adveco  AD & MD ranges condensing water heaters and boilers which boast 106% net combustion efficiency, reducing energy costs and emissions via efficient use of fuel energy.

Although condensing boilers currently rely on fossil natural gas as a fuel, the AD, ADplus and MD range all are ready to support a 20% hydrogen blend making them excellent, low-cost to-operate options for commercial sites with large hot water and heating demands, and gateway technology to next-generation green gas-grid fuels. For organisations with properties with a gas connection, Adveco can support refurbishment with a wide-range of condensing gas-fired appliances including the popular BFC Cyclone and Innovo water heaters from A.O.Smith.

Producing fewer emissions than traditional boilers, condensing boilers are a good option for those who want to save energy and money on their bills whilst showing a reduction in emissions that impact air quality and the environment.

Here are some of the benefits of using a condensing boiler:

  • More energy efficient than traditional boilers which can lead to energy savings of up to 30%.
  • More environmentally friendly, producing fewer emissions than traditional boilers, which can help to improve air quality.
  • Comfortable, providing consistent temperature in your facility.
  • Low maintenance, and should require little upkeep beyond annual servicing.

Condensing boilers have redefined water heating, prioritising energy efficiency and environmental responsibility. Adveco, with its unwavering commitment to innovation, continues to offer its range of cutting-edge products that exemplify these principles. By embracing condensing boilers organisations gain a proven technology which effectively reduces energy consumption, minimises emissions, and enhances comfort levels within their buildings, all while taking the first steps towards a net zero future.
