Condensing Boilers--Are they cost effective

Presentation given at ACEEE 2018 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings.

About the presentation

In this paper, we will discuss the usage and performance findings from this monitoring and the impact of installation and recommissioning procedures on boiler performance. We will show that condensing boilers in Minnesota homes are generally achieving high performance without requiring a specialized site-specific installation. We will discuss the results of our market analysis, including HVAC contractor and homeowner surveys and cost comparisons on over 70 installation bids. We will also include our recommendations for easy to implement Quality Installation activities to improve system performance.
