What is a condensing boiler & how do condensing boilers work?

A condensing boiler is more efficient than a standard efficiency boiler because more heat is transferred to the system water rather than being lost to atmosphere up the flue. It has a large heat exchanger or sometimes a second heat exchanger to extract more heat from the flue gases which reduces the flue gas temperature to below the dew point and this causes the water vapour in the flue gases to condense, hence the name. This condensate is then piped away to a drain or soakaway. The condensate is mildly acidic so only plastic pope can be used and it will corrode metals, brickwork and concrete if not discharged properly. Condensate pipes are also prone to freezing in water if they are not installed correctly and this can result in leaks in the property and damage to the boiler.

What are the benefits of installing an unvented cylinder?

There are many benefits of installing an unvented cylinder, mains pressure hot water for powerful showers and fast bath fill, cylinder can be located anywhere, (close to bathrooms is better), no more pipes in the loft to worry about freezing, lower risk of legionnella due to lack of tanks in the loft and much reduced risk of contamination, more efficient due to better insulation and faster heat up times. Can provide hot water to multiple bathrooms where a combi boiler can't, subject to adequate incoming mains pressure & flow. Long warranties on cylinders.
