Your Buying Guide to Energy-Efficient Gas Boilers

A boiler is a central part of many home heating systems, especially those in colder climates. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have the right gas boiler for your home. These units operate by distributing hot steam or water throughout the system to heat the home. But even though they’ve been around for more than a century, they’re not old-fashioned. With modern technology, you can get a gas boiler that’s more energy-efficient than ever; some gas boilers can even achieve 98.5% efficiency.

How Gas Boilers Work

Gas boilers are fueled by either natural gas or propane. They heat water by pumping circulated water through pipes over a series of gas flames. The water is heated as it passes the flames, and an electric pump moves the hot water through pipes and radiators. Gentle, moist heat radiates into your living spaces. Meanwhile, the water continues to move through your system; by the time it completes a circuit, it’s cooled, so the boiler fires again.

Benefits of Gas Boilers

Some people shy away from a gas boiler because inefficient models can be expensive to run, but installing a more modern, energy-efficient boiler allows you to have all the benefits of a gas boiler without the skyrocketing energy costs.

Some of the benefits of having a gas boiler include:

  • No need for ductwork
  • Gentle, even heating
  • Balance of moisture in your indoor air
  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Decreased utility bills
  • Dependable hot water

How to Choose a Gas Boiler

To get an idea of how much your boiler will cost to operate, you can compare the annual fuel utilization efficiency of the models you’re looking at and determine which one best fits your home’s needs and your budget. The annual fuel utilization efficiency is calculated by dividing the amount of fuel supplied to the gas boiler by the amount of heat produced by the unit. The higher the number, the better; it means more of your energy costs are going towards heating.

Most energy-efficient boilers will be direct-vented. A direct-vent gas boiler is a unit that includes a closed horizontal piping system that goes through a side wall right to the outside for exhaust and intake air. This is essential in creating an airtight combustion system. Direct-vented boilers may have higher upfront costs than chimney-vented styles, but in the long run, you’ll save up to 30% on operating costs while also reducing your impact on the environment.

Some things to consider when buying a gas boiler include:

  • The climate you live in
  • Your home’s heating needs
  • The size of boiler you need
  • The efficiency level you’re aiming for

How to Keep Your Gas Boiler Running Efficiently

You can maximize your home’s heating efficiency by ensuring the heat produced by your boiler stays inside. To achieve this, consider:

  • Adding insulation to your attic and walls
  • Adding weatherstripping around your doors
  • Adding caulk around your windows
  • Insulating cooling system ducts properly
  • Installing programmable thermostats

You can also ensure that your gar boiler is running efficiently by scheduling annual professional maintenance.
