BSEE BOILERS & HOT WATER


High energy costs, steep carbon reducon targets and growing concern over air quality reinforce the need for cleaner, more ecient heang in buildings. Invesng in an upgrade to


condensing boiler technology is a small step that would deliver big changes, says Chris Meir, Sales Director at Remeha.

CLEANER HEAT, CLEANER AIR The positives of condensing boilers


hese are exciting times for the building services industry and heating manufacturers as we look to provide cleaner, more efficient heat for UK buildings. The government has rightly identified this critical service as a key target for improvement in its Clean Growth Strategy. Its mission is to halve the energy use of new buildings by 2030 – with the additional aim of halving the costs of achieving the same efficiency standard in existing buildings.


As the UK moves towards a low carbon future, manufacturers have widened their selection of heating equipment to include an ever-growing range of low carbon and renewable technologies. But no two buildings are alike and while new build developments are designed to require less heat, it’s the UK’s inefficient older building stock that presents the greater challenge. Furthermore, gas currently heats 80% of UK homes and buildings, with no immediate likelihood of this changing. A logical step is therefore to reduce the use of gas by replacing older equipment with more efficient technology. For this reason, condensing boilers have a valuable role to play in the technology mix.


Whether the sole provider of heat or working alongside renewable or low carbon technologies, condensing boilers offer a cost-effective solution to cleaner, energy-efficient heating. As such, they are a practical option to help move the UK towards its ultimate goal. So let’s consider the benefits.


Energy and carbon savings


Businesses and organisations are under increasing pressure to reduce energy consumption. For many, their buildings will still rely on dated or inefficient boiler plant. Buildings like these will typically waste around 30% of the energy input for heating – and that’s a conservative estimate. Cost is typically the major barrier to energy efficiency improvements. But investing in advanced condensing boilers, which can deliver near maximum efficiencies, is an affordable option for organisations to improve the energy performance of their buildings.


How great are the savings?


The exact savings from retrofitting condensing boilers will depend on the nature of the building and the existing boilers. But some of our customers have seen gas consumption fall by up to 48% after retrofitting condensing boilers, while others have benefited from an annual carbon reduction equivalent to 217 tonnes.


Saving on energy costs


Then there are the financial savings, with more efficient use of energy resulting in lower heating bills. In our experience, an annual saving of £35K in gas bills is achievable following a boiler upgrade, illustrating how fast financial payback can be.


uAberystwyth University reduced gas consumpon at its William Davies research centre by 46% aer replacing dated boiler plant with Remeha's high eciency condensing boilers.


Servicing and maintenance are also easier, contributing to long-term operational efficiency. So ultimately, investing in high-efficiency condensing boilers can help businesses protect the bottom line and organisations make tight budgets stretch further.


Compliance


For specifiers and engineers there are advantages too. Manufacturers like Remeha are continuously evolving condensing boiler technology to meet
