How does the condensing boiler work?
The boiler produces heat by burning natural gas.
In a standard or low temperature boiler, the fumes and water vapor from the combustion of natural gas are released into the atmosphere instead of being fully exploited.
Instead of discharging them into the atmosphere, the condensing boiler collects these fumes, cools them to create water vapor, and condenses this vapor to take advantage of their thermal energy.
It will allow you to save up to 30% (1) in energy savings on your heating bill, compared to 20% for a conventional boiler.
