Andover Boiler Replacement

 

High Efficiency Upgrade Has Added Benefits

This boiler replacement in Andover, MA  produced some unexpected benefits for the homeowner. As expected the homeowners now enjoy a reliable, safe, and highly efficient Burnham Alpine gas boiler which is substantially reducing the family’s energy bill. One pleasant surprise was that the boiler replacement project qualified for the Mass Save energy efficiency program, allowing the family to receive thousands in rebates along with 0% financing.

Reclaimed Basement Space

This Alpine is a condensing boiler which, unlike conventional boilers, do not need to be located near a home’s chimney. Rather than venting through the chimney condensing boilers make use of two PVC pipes, one for intake and one for exhaust, which are run horizontally to the side or rear of the house. That means the heating equipment, including the existing 60 gallon hot water tank can be located anywhere in the basement.

In this case we relocated the mechanical equipment to a small, little used corner freeing up a large chunk of valuable basement real estate. This homeowner can now plan any basement remodeling project he desires without worrying about his heating equipment as an impediment. This is a very real problem for many folks living in older Boston area homes. Many who have had a new condensing boiler installed have found it very liberating.

Boiler Replacement and Installation

Burnham Alpine Gas Boiler

ENERGYSTAR most efficient 2017 bannerThis heating system is powered by a new high efficiency Burnham Alpine modulating condensing gas boiler which earned ENERGY STAR designation as Most Efficient 2017.

The Alpine is equipped with advanced technologies to constantly monitor boiler performance and match fuel consumption directly to heating demand. The Alpine utilizes outside temperature sensing technology that automatically adjusts the firing rate of the boiler based on the outside temperature. It also continuously monitors system safety parameters to ensure years of comfortable, safe, reliable operation.

In this installation the system provides 4 zones of heat and 1 for domestic hot water. It’s set up to prioritize hot water so when hot water is called for the heat zones shut down and the system is dedicated to producing hot water.
