High Mark Plumbing can install, repair or do routine maintenance required by boilers for Fraserview Vancouver BC. Boilers can have a variety of uses, ranging from providing hot water for heating or cleaning to creating steam for industrial use – including creating electricity. At the household level, boilers are most likely to be used as part of a heating system or to create hot water.
The condensing boiler is relatively modern, and is one of the most efficient and most interesting boilers. The way it works is that cool water is piped into the boiler system. Warm air blows across the pipes, whereupon two things happen: ambient moisture in the warm air condenses, and flows into a drain, while the water that was piped in flows through a looped pipe that is warmed by a burner – usually gas, but it could be electric. The heated water flows out of the boiler into a series of pipes or radiators where it can be used for heat. As it cools, it is piped back to the cold water intake, and the cycle continues.
There are two main advantages to using a condensing boiler. The first is that it conserves energy, the second is that because it reuses some of the gases that are produced in heating the water, it has a lower carbon footprint. There are some lesser considerations, as well. They don’t require a tank, and therefore have smaller space considerations, yet the supply of hot water is continuous. Controls are simple.
