|… a boiler that offers a high energy efficiency by recovering heat from the flue gases. This is achieved by increasing the heat exchanger surface area, which recovers extra sensible heat whenever the boiler fires. The boiler becomes even more efficient when system water temperatures are low because the larger heat exchanger area promotes condensation, allowing much of the latent heat to be recaptured. Standard losses (when the boiler is not firing) are low, and part load performance is very good. In multiple-boiler systems, condensing boilers can be used as the lead boiler.|
