Save Money with High-Efficiency Boilers
Energy costs have risen dramatically over the past few decades. Twin Cities homeowners feel that increase directly. Heating Minnesota homes takes a financial toll on every budget. Older heating equipment is very inefficient, using only 60 to 70% of natural gas energy for actual heating. If you have a boiler that is 20+ years old, it is costing you plenty.
As the leading HVAC contractor in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area, we can help you save money every month. Here’s what you need to know about gas boiler efficiency.
- Modern Standard Efficiency Boilers Are up to 84% Efficient – Manufacturers like Slant Fin and Burnham offer a wide range of standard efficiency equipment. They use up to 84% of the energy in natural gas fuel to provide comfort in the home. Compared to older equipment, which wasted 30-40% of that energy, they’re a major improvement. With modern burners and heat exchangers, you get far more heat per dollar. That means significant savings on energy bills when you make the upgrade.
- High-Efficiency Condensing Boilers Provide Maximum Savings – The same manufacturers also make high-efficiency residential hydronic boilers. These operate at up to 96% AFUE efficiency. That means that only 4% of the energy in the natural gas is wasted. Secondary heat exchangers, modulating gas burners, and digital control systems enable those savings. Naturally, that technology makes these units more expensive. Even so, owners can save more than the difference in initial cost over the life of the equipment.
