Maximizing Efficiency With Hydronic Boilers

Versatile systems can play roles in many applications

Hydronic boilers enable efficient control and delivery of heat when and where it is needed.

Before the introduction of condensing-boiler technology, boilers typically operated at efficiencies of 80 to 85 percent. Today, condensing hydronic boilers can operate at efficiencies in the mid- to high 90s. Hydronic boilers can be used for either building heat or process hot-water applications.

A condensing boiler extracts latent and sensible heat from combustion exhaust, and the resu
