Increasing Residential Boiler Efficiency

About the Webinar

Although high-efficiency condensing boilers have been available in the residential market for many years, consumer acceptance and market penetration is low. One contributing factor is that many mechanical contractors believe condensing boilers don’t achieve their listed efficiency. For this project the team characterized existing boilers and determined practical, cost-effective steps to improve performance through retrocommissioning and improved installation.

CEE’s Director of Residential Programs, Rebecca Olson, and Senior Research Engineer Ben Schoenbauer dive deeper into project findings and discuss quality installation and retrocommissioning best practices that can be integrated into utility conservation improvement programs.
