Materials of Construction for Condensing Boilers and Water Heaters
|Printer Friendly (PDF)
Before we start discussing materials of construction, there is a point that we need to understand. Any boiler or water heater can and will condense if the return water temperature to the boiler is low enough. A big part of what makes condensing boilers and water heaters so special is that they utilize specific materials that can handle the condensation that occurs without damage.
Single Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger
Dual Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers
Copper/Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers
There are many options out there when it comes to condensing boilers. Be sure that you know the materials that make up the boiler you choose. The life of your system depends upon it.
In next week’s issue, we will discuss turndown ratios and what they mean for energy savings.
