High Efficiency Condensing Boilers Vs Conventional Boilers

Updated: Aug 10

Do you need a new boiler for your home? If so, it’s important to choose an appliance that will meet your needs. Whether you want to save money or free up extra space, here’s a look at some of the advantages of investing in a high-efficiency unit.


Condensing or conventional: what’s the difference?

Boilers use hot vapours to heat your home. While conventional units simply expel any excess gas through the chimney or vent pipe, condensing boilers are designed to trap excess warmth and direct it back into the heating system. Since they recover and recycle heat, condensing units are more energy-efficient than conventional boiler systems.


Benefits of a condensing unit

On top of helping you reduce the amount of energy you use, high-efficiency condensing boilers have several other key benefits. These appliances can help you:

  1. Save money. Since condensing boilers use less fuel than conventional boilers, you’ll save on your energy bill. In addition, unlike conventional units, condensing boilers are made of non-ferrous metal, which prevents them from corroding over time, thereby increasing their lifespan and allowing you to get the most out of your investment.

  2. Reduce your carbon footprint. Investing in a condensing boiler is good for the planet. These devices produce one tonne less of carbon dioxide than non-condensing boilers.

  3. Free up space. Condensing boilers come in a range of sleek and compact sizes and some don’t even require a hot water tank. This makes them ideal if you have a small home and want to free up extra room.


It’s important to keep in mind that in order for a condensing unit to provide these benefits, proper installation and ongoing maintenance are key. Fortunately, if your condensing boiler unit is installed and maintained by the experts at Modern Air & Water, you can rest assured your investment is in good hands.
