Remeha Quinta Eco Plus: a revolutionary commercial heating and hot water system from the pioneers of condensing boiler technology New from Remeha Commercial is the ‘super condensing’ Quinta Eco Plus, a revolutionary commercial heating and hot water system that delivers outstanding energy efficiencies and significant carbon and financial savings in an affordable, replicable solution. The Quinta Eco Plus consists of the market-leading Remeha Quinta Pro commercial condensing boiler and the Eco Plus, a Passive Flue Gas Heat Recovery Device developed by Remeha and Zenex Technologies. The Eco Plus recovers waste energy equivalent to around 15% of the gross input, passing it back into the heating system, to radiators, UFH or DHW. The Quinta Eco Plus achieves maximum condensing at all times, offering a new level of attainable efficiency of 97% GVC at 82/71°C for buildings. The Quinta Eco Plus is pre-plumbed and configured within a rigid mobile frame for ease of installation. With its compact, modular design, it meets the individual requirements of existing and new buildings. l For more information call 0118 978 3434 or visit
