What is a non condensing conventional boiler?
Keeping this in consideration, are all new boilers condensing?
Because of the building regulations now in place, the vast majority of new gas and oil boilers have to be condensing models. However, there are occasional exceptions to this rule. In rare cases, a condensing boiler may not be a viable option in a particular property.
Also, are condensing boilers any good? A high-efficiency condensing boiler is a good choice if you're looking for a greener and more efficient boiler. This is because condensing boilers are able to make better use of the heat they generate from burning fuels, such as gas or oil. A condensing boiler requires less heat from the burner, so is more efficient.
Also to know is, what is the difference between a condensing boiler and a conventional boiler?
The main difference between a condensing boiler and one that does not use the condensing principle or a conventional boiler lies in the type of combustion. In condensing boilers, a special heat exchanger also acts as a condenser.
Can you still install a non condensing boiler?
