High Efficiency boilers

The way a boiler works is by heating water which is conducted through radiators, radiant floor systems or a coil.  With a standard boiler, some of the energy that is used to heat the boiler, whether it is a fossil fuel or natural gas, is lost in the process of conducting. A high-efficiency boiler is designed to trap the escaping heat and direct it back into heating the home

Low efficiency means that fuel is wasted.  Boilers over 10 years old only have efficiency ratings of 50-70%.  That means they use 50-70% of the fuel to heat the house and the remaining 30-50% of the fuel is wasted. 

Along with saving fuel costs, a high efficiency boiler will also help the environment. Because it uses less fuel, it creates less pollution.  According to the calculations by ENERGY STAR, 29% of your home's fuel use is in heating. In especially cold climates, that percentage can be even higher.
