Most cutting-edge heating boilers are condensing gas fired boiler and a combi heating boiler is of this type. It delivers water on demand and is the most common form of heating boiler in the Australia.
Ensure that an heating installer has confirmed that you can install one in your office before you make a purchase. This should be carried out by a trained installer as there are rules that must be complied with. There are various reasons why it is more challenging to install a cutting-edge condensing heating boiler and replace a conventional boiler.
The output gases from the flue tend to be not as hot and hence heavier than for an elderly heating boiler form as a result they often condense very quickly and form an easily seen plume. regions near to the flue outlet are often subject to surface wetting, this can impact on neighbouring offices, in the worst case scenario the exhaust plume can impact people going past.
Your existing flue may not be acceptable for a modern condensing Gas boilersrequirements. To complete the fitting you could find that the flue will need to be converted. You cannot share a condensing boiler flue with any other non-condensing gas appliance.
An external drain point is needed to facilitate the removal of the condensate which will develop within gas fired boiler.
There are many ways to defeat these fitting difficulties. That is why you will want to use a trained gas fired boiler installer has that they will know of these tricks. Whilst some of these fixes will add to the fitting cost you will then need to setoff these against the reduced life-time running costs of the condensing heating boiler.
On the plus side you do have some choices …
