The new boilers ain’t what they used to be ten years ago!
Our new Allied Plumbing and Pumps boilers provide you with a steady flow of hot water to heat your home through your rads, or radiant floors. The new, high-efficiency, condensing boilers really help in lowering your heating costs. If your current heating system is more than 10 years old, you may be able to enjoy significant savings every year by switching to a newer model.
The new condensing boilers have special venting requirements because they use exhaust gases to heat the water. These gases (in the old boilers) were just lost to the atmosphere. Harnessing these gases (and using them) for additional heat can bring energy savings up dramatically. At Allied Plumbing, our fully trained and experienced plumbers can assess your current venting setup and advise you on which kind of boiler will work for you.
Get the Right Size
Boiler capacity is measured in BTUs or British Thermal Units. In technical terms, this number represents the amount of energy needed to increase the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. We can come and perform a diagnostic on your home and determine what size boiler will have the most desirable effect. A boiler that is too large will not be used properly. Imagine a V8 engine in a compact car, it’s the same idea. Allied plumbers can perform the correct calculations so you get the right-sized boiler – and that saves you money.
