Gas / oil boilers are the most common and efficient on the market. A diesel fired boiler is a popular heating option in regions with limited access to natural gas. Although diesel fired boilers tend to be on the more expensive side to install, they are among the most efficient and powerful and could lower energy costs by up to one third.
Boilers are an energy efficient and environmentally friendly mode of heating your home. They work by boiling cold water by passing it through a series of heated pipes. Then, they distribute the water or steam throughout the pipes in your home.
Boiler Costs by Fuel Type
Boilers cost anywhere from $3,000 to $11,000 to install but prices varies by type. You might also end up spending more on the fuel you burn.
Steam vs Hot Water Boiler Pricing
Water uses 25% less energy than steam. But steam carries and transfers heat better, meaning it’s better for colder climates and homes without much insulation. Steam boilers produce more heat and more rapidly than almost any other type of heating system.
What factors are closely related to the fuel consumption of gas boilers?
First of all, it has a close relationship with the boiler operator, addition, the boiler heating area, fuel heating value, fuel purity, boiler convection heating area, boiler radiation heating area and the boiler adopts technology of the boiler.
The method of calculate gas consumption of the gas boiler:
1. Determine the output of the boiler;
2. Determine the heating value of the fuel;
3. Determine the thermal efficiency of the boiler. Fuel consumption gas consumption formula=boiler output/fuel heat value/boiler thermal efficiency
