What’s a Condensing Boiler?
Condensing boilers are water heaters fueled by natural gas or propane. They achieve high efficiency by condensing water vapor in the exhaust gasses and so recovering its latent heat of vaporization, which would otherwise have been wasted. This condensed vapor leaves the system in liquid form, via a drain.
Non-condensing boilers typically take in the air needed for combustion from inside the room; condensing boilers are fully room sealed and take air in directly from the outside through the flue. Condensing boilers are typically at least 25% more efficient than non-condensing boilers, which means that you get more usable heat from the fuel you burn; condensing boilers are around 90% efficient, so you will save money on fuel bills.
Why Use a Premium IBC Condensing Boiler?
We’re proud to carry the IBC line of condensing boilers here at Paquette Plumbing. Here are just a few reasons our customers count on IBC:
Top Quality Components
IBC has researched and sourced the best materials available to ensure that each boiler will operate as efficiently as possible while providing durability over the long term. IBC has searched the world to find the best components made. Gas valves, combustion fans, controls – all of the components necessary to create a chain that will convert a fuel gas into reliable, efficient and comfortable heat for your home. Our philosophy is that there will be “no weak links” in the chain, and we continue to try and improve the quality of everything we use in our products.
Using precise fuel-air mixing and advanced burners and combustion control, we squeeze every penny out of your energy dollar. IBC boilers scrub as much heat as possible from the combustion process – we get it all. Our boiler runs cool when it can and only ramps up to higher temperatures when specific loads require it (usually a small percentage of the heating season). Our creative control methods ensure that heat is distributed only to those loads that need it at the time – more energy savings.
Where Technology Meets Efficiency
But there’s more! Advanced diagnostic features, intuitive and easy control set-up as well as unique system operation logging help you set up the boiler for optimum efficiency, and then maintain it, in whatever system it is connected to. Ease of installation helps ensure that your heating system operates properly from day one.
Our generous venting allowances, compact size, and simple piping options make for good-looking, install anywhere options that will add to your pride of ownership in one of the most energy-smart heating systems available today.
Feel good that a percentage of your investment in the IBC technologies ground-breaking boiler today is also going toward the development of further innovative green technology for tomorrow.
