HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING
The energy performance that is obtained using condensation boilers for underfloor heating installations or for conventional radiators is extremely efficient.
Under optimum conditions, the gas energy savings is about 30% higher than that of a traditional boiler
The exhaust smoke of a boiler contains water vapour, which is hot and may be recovered and used for the installation by means of a condensation technique. In a conventional boiler, this energy is lost to the atmosphere.
Using condensation technology we can partially recover this heat in the water vapour as it is transformed to its liquid state, with the subsequent increase in performance of said boilers. Also, as the smoke cools down, their heat loss decreases as well as the loss attributed to the enclosure of the boiler. These higher efficiency values are immediately transformed into a reduction in fuel consumption.
How do condensation boilers work?
The condensation boiler may achieve efficiency levels higher than 100% and save about 30% in gas consumption.
More efficient diesel systems
This document is intended to justify the installation of diesel generation against a conventional diesel fuel and pellet boiler.
Advantages of modulating oil boiler connection with pellet boiler
The only advantage that presents a biomass boiler to another that uses fossil fuel (liquid or gaseous) is the lower price of fuel. That advantage, as we shall see, depending on the performance of the boiler, is more apparent than real. Moreover, biomass boilers only have drawbacks. We begin by calculating the energy equivalency between diesel and the pellet:
- The calorific value of 1 liter of diesel equals 8.753 hcal.
- 1 kg of pellets ENplus-A1 average calorific is 4.229 kcal.
Therefore, the equivalent calorific value of both fuels is; 8.753 / 4.229 = 2.07. 2.07 kg pellets = 1 l of diesel oil
On the other hand, a biomass boiler, has some processes very slow on and shutdown, which requires a deposit buffer that absorbs the high inertia of these processes, avoiding peaks of temperatures higher or lower of the consigned the thermostats in.
Advantages of diesel modulating boiler with respect to conventional boiler heating oil
The seasonal performance of the conventional boilers with combustion that produce smoke coming from the chimney above 170 ° C represent a loss of more than 13%.
On the contrary, new modulating condensing boilers, in which fumes do not exceed 90ºc, recover the condensed water, what saves us at least 20% in fuel consumption.
This is the high efficiency of the burner of modulating boilers, which make its combustion as complete to the level of particles emitted into the atmosphere is much lower than that required by any regulations for boilers of its kind. In fact, if you gas boiler would be rated with the highest rating, class 5NOx; rating that doesn't even exist for ancient oil boilers. Since there is practically no residue in the combustion chamber, the life of the boiler lengthens appreciably and turns it into a very low-maintenance device.
Another fact to keep in mind is the lowering of the fireplace, new boilers can work with outputs of plastic, material much more economical than the stainless steel that is used in other boilers.
Then summarize the advantages that contribute regarding ancient oil boilers modulating boilers.
Advantages of diesel oil boilers modulating vs. ancient oil boilers
- Flue outlet below 90 ° C.
- Recovery of condensate water, which means a minimum 20% fuel saving.
- Level of particles emitted into the lower atmosphere (equivalent to 5NOx classification).
- Longer service life and low maintenance.
- Suitable for plastic, much more affordable than the stainless steel chimney.
New generation energy efficient circulating pumps
You have probably heard of the great acceptance that Inverter technology has had. As a result of its innovative operation, this technology constitutes the maximum expression of energy savings in the air conditioning sector. Instead of using a constant speed compressor, the Inverter system uses a variable speed compressor, which means that the cooling or heating capacity of the equipment varies to adapt to the conditions of the room. This makes Inverter units more economical and efficient in their operation, they are quieter than the standard equivalent system and offer the best performance on the market. All Inverter units provide a series of advantages, among which the following are worth mentioning:
