THE DIFFERENT MODELS OF BOILERS

To ensure the supply of a heating system to heat the water in the house, the installation of a boiler remains the best option. With the diversity of offers on the market, it is sometimes necessary to learn about the different models of boilers before buying the one that suits best.

ZOOM ON GAS BOILER MODELS

Gas boilers are counted among the most efficient heating systems. Almost all households have adopted it. Its efficiency is particularly effective, and the rate remains correct although the price of gas continues to rise.

In order to benefit from it, it is important that the house is connected to the town gas. For homes that cannot be connected to natural gas, it is possible to install an LPG tank. In this case, it is necessary to think of filling it every year by a supplier.

A gas boiler can be quite expensive, but you should not lose sight of the fact that it is a good investment. It represents an excellent return on investment in the long term with an impressive lifespan, provided that you choose a top quality model.

Regarding the few recommendations to respect, it is essential to note that a gas boiler must be installed by a qualified professional and its maintenance must be carried out by a heating craftsman: the law requires it.

A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO WOOD BOILERS

Currently, many people are once again interested in wood as a fuel. It is indeed economical and ecological, thus meeting multiple criteria. The wood used comes in part from sustainably managed forests.

The wood boilers are fed with fuel such as logs or logs in their natural state. Sometimes, the reconstituted versions by compression are more practical because of a higher efficiency. Pellets are also very efficient. They are made of dry wood waste for a higher ratio than dry wood.

Mixed wood boilers are also offered on the market. The advantage of this model is that it can alternate the use of logs and pellets. When the boiler has consumed the logs, the pellet supply immediately takes over to ensure combustion. In this way, users are supplied according to the availability of fuel and the current rate.

OVERVIEW OF OIL-FIRED BOILER MODELS

Oil-fired boilers have met a real breakthrough: they are no longer large, noisy and polluting machines. This model of boiler is suitable for a durable, efficient and fast heat production.

However, it should be noted that this equipment, in its most recent version, consumes less while generating maximum heat. Low temperature or low consumption boilers spend more than other condensing models, or mixed models (solar and oil for example).

For recommendations, it is essential to note that an oil boiler requires regular maintenance. For safety reasons and in order to benefit from a better efficiency, such a machine must be maintained as much as possible to stay in good condition. Generally, this model is easy to use: no need to fill a tank or perform any maneuver to make it work.

Fuel oil is often known to cause unpleasant odors. Therefore, it is wise to choose a well ventilated place for storage or to provide functional openings. The main advantage of having an oil-fired boiler is to enjoy a lower cost installation with a more profitable oil rate than electricity or gas.
