    Gas Fired Hot Water and Steam Residential Boilers

    August 19, 2010admin 4 Comments »
    All residential boilers can be devided in few easy categories.
    First is what type of fuel boiler used to create heat? It is 4 major types:
    1. Gas Fired Boiler- These boilers can be fueled either with Natural Gas or Propane.
    2. Oil Fired Boiler- These boilers can be fueled with oil.
    3. Electric Boiler- These boilers use electricity to heat the water in your heating system.
    4. Biomass Boiler – These boiler can be fueled with wood, coal, corn cubs and these type of boilers consider as Green Boilers.

    Second is what is efficiency rates of the boiler:

    1. Mid Efficiency 80%+ Heating Boilers – Most common boilers in USA. They have Cast Iron Heat Exchangers, easy to use and service but not really great money saver in the long run. These type of boilers are best for high temperature hot water heating applications like old classic style cast iron radiators.
    2. High Efficiency 90%+ Heating Boilers – Fastest growing portion of heating for your house. Best for applications as Radiant Heat, Snow Melt, Low Temperature Heating and much much more.

    Burnham Boilers are present in all these areas of hydronic heating systems.

    Here is few examples of Burnham product line form – leading manufacture of boilers with long and great history:

    Burnham Mid Efficiency Cast Iron Hot Water Boilers
    SCG and PVG – Energy Star Rated, Gas Fired Water Boilers

    PVG and SCG series boilers are simple to install, and require very little service and maintenance – especially compared to higher-efficiency condensing boilers. This can save homeowners hundreds of dollars in up-front installation costs, as well as several hundred dollars a year in maintenance and tune-up’s. Factoring in installation, annual service, and fuel usage – over time the operating costs of the SCG and PVG may be well below those of condensing boilers. While low temperature radiant heat systems are becoming more popular in newer buildings, many still utilize baseboard heat, convectors, air handlers. & indirect water heaters – which generally require higher water temperatures. Cast iron boilers are the best choice for these applications. The PVG and SCG deliver the winning combination of efficiency and durability in high-temp heating applications.

    Burnham Mid Efficiency Cast Iron Hot Water Boiler key Features:
    • 85+% AFUE (5 sizes) ENERGY STAR® Certified
    • 70 to 280 MBH in 7 Sizes
    • Rugged Cast Iron Sectional Design
    • Natural or LP Gas
    • PVG – Power Vented, SCG – Sealed Combustion Venting
    • Limited Lifetime Warranty

    Radiant, Radiators, Hydronic Hot Water Heating System

    Radiant, Radiators, Hydronic Hot Water Heating System

    If you’re investigating a heating system for your new home, you are making a decision that will affect your comfort, health and the cost of running your household for years to come. So, you owe it to yourself and your family to consider the many advantages of automatic hot water heating (generally referred to as a hydronic system).

    Homeowners with hydronic systems find they are reliable, clean and efficient all without the noise, dust and drafts of hot air systems. Here’s how the typical hydronic system works:      

       

     The heat source is a boiler fueled most often by oil or gas, with a certified efficiency rating. A small pump circulates heated water through baseboard units, radiators, or in-floor radiant tubing in each room, where warmth is distributed evenly without fan noise or blowing air.

    Operation is automatic; indoor temperature is maintained at the desired level, regardless of changes in weather, with one setting of the room thermostat. Hydronic heat can be arranged in zones to bring the correct amount of heat to each area of the house, satisfying comfort requirements and containing energy costs. And auxiliary heating needs, such as domestic hot water, snow melting or swimming pool heating can be easily met by the hydronic system.

    Hydronic systems offer a host of advantages not found in other types of home comfort systems:

    Economy
    Of all natural materials for conducting heat, water is best. Temperature changes of water can be accurately controlled and measured, so there is less “over-shooting” of thermostat settings and less wasted heat. And today’s compact boilers, with improved heat-transfer technology, high- efficiency burners and electronic controls are 30 to 40 percent more efficient than boilers installed a decade ago.

    Comfort
    True comfort means being unaware of temperature and humidity and this is what you should expect from a superior heating system. If you feel hot or cold spaces or drafts in your home, the heating system is inadequate by today’s standards.

    Conventional hydronic systems bring warmth to a room through the unnoticed flow of warmed air through the room from an enclosed heating surface inside baseboard units. Heating elements are located along the outside wall, under windows to counteract chill downdrafts. Even when the flow of water through the baseboard tubing stops, the heating element continues to disperse its warmth without the abrupt “on-off”; cycling of forced air systems.

    Zoned heat provides the ultimate in comfort the temperature you want, when you want it, in each part of the house. With individual zone thermostats and clock control, you can let daytime living areas cool down at night, then warm them up in the morning just before you get out of bed.

    Reliability
    Hydronic systems are reliable from the day they’re installed and offer trouble-free service for decades. A few operating components will need adjustment over the years, or have to be replaced eventually. But the basic equipment boiler, baseboard units, and tubing is sturdy and reliable. With only a little attention, a hydronic system provides infallible heat on demand for many years.

    A boiler is not an appliance to be used a few years and then replaced it is an integral component of the home. And the hydronic system as a whole is uncomplicated, with few moving parts.

    Health
    With hydronics, there is no recirculation of air from the basement or from other rooms, blowing dust, odors, germs or spores throughout the house. Hydronic heat is a sealed system; it neither adds nor subtracts moisture in the house, so normal patterns of cooking and washing usually can maintain proper humidity levels without additional equipment.

    Local Expertise
    Among the plumbing-heating contractors in your vicinity, you’re likely to find one who is a member of Burnham’s Home Heating Team. This select group of professionals has teamed up with Burnham Hydronics, one of the largest and most experienced manufacturers of high- quality boilers and related equipment. You can count on your team member for complete hydronic system expertise.
