16 Gas-fired Condensing Boilers

Gas-fired Condensing BoilersGas-fired Condensing Boiler installed at the Green Deal Eco House

Gas-fired condensing boilers recover heat from the exhaust gas.

By recovering and using heat that would otherwise be lost up the flue, condensing boilers can operate with seasonal efficiencies in excess of 90%. Although these boilers require a greater initial investment, their increased economy can repay the extra initial cost in fuel savings.

41 Underfloor Insulation

Underfloor InsulationInsulating and draught-proofing your floor can be a cost-effective energy saving measure.

For wooden floors, typical measures include insulating between joists and sealing between floorboards and skirtingboards. Underfloor insulation for solid floors is more complicated and usually requires professional installation. Illustration shows solid floor insulation.

15 Flue Gas Heat Recovery

Flue Gas Heat RecoveryThis is a compact unit that can enhance the efficiency of a compatible domestic gas boiler. This small unit integrates with the boiler, recycling latent heat gases normally lost to atmosphere, to preheat the cold mains. These devices both reduce cold water consumption and the gas required to heat hot water.
