Fuel Efficient Boilers With Easy-To-Use Heating Controls
There is only one correctly sized furnace or boiler for your home. A unit that is oversized will turn on and off too frequently, called “short cycling”. Short cycling causes the unit to lose efficiency, and moisture can accumulate in the heat exchanger which might damage the unit over time. A unit that is undersized will run too often, and on the coldest days of the year may not be able to adequately heat the home. Thios is why choosing the right heating company to service your Aspen or Vail, Colorado home is extremely important.

Buying a replacement boiler is likely to be one of the most expensive household appliance purchases you’ll make – so it’s important to choose the best replacement boiler for your Aspen, Vail or Glenwood Springs home, at the right price. Replacement boiler checklist: First of all, you need to decide which type of replacement boiler to go for. Here are some key considerations you should bear in mind:
Fuel Type: The majority of US households have a gas heating system equipped with a gas boiler, but for households not connected to gas, there are alternatives. Other options include fitting an oil boiler, liquid petroleum gas or LPG boiler, or a wood burning stove fitted with a back boiler.
Boiler Type: Decide if you want to replace your boiler with a combination, or comb boiler, which provides heat for your radiators and domestic hot water on demand, or a heat-only boiler, which is connected to a hot water storage system.
Boiler Efficiency: If you have gas central heating, your boiler will account for around 60% of your home’s CO2 emissions, according to the Energy Saving Trust. This makes boiler efficiency a key priority if you’re looking to cut your energy bills and carbon footprint.
Boiler efficiency is a key part of our independent boiler tests, which meet standards. We check each boiler to see how much of the gas it burns is converted into heat. This measures the boiler’s efficiency.
Heating Controls: Heating controls let you take charge of when, where and at which temperature your heating is operating. It’s a good way of managing your heating costs, as you can ensure that your heating is only on in the rooms and at the times you want it to be. When it’s time to replace your boiler, you may consider installing a heating control system which has better efficiency than older systems.

The “lead unit” boiler modulates with demand to capacity. As demand increases, additional boilers fire and modulate to capacity. This continues, with additional boilers firing and modulating to capacity until all units are operating. Every 24 hours, the SMART SYSTEM automatically shifts the lead boiler role to the next in the sequence, distributing lead-lag run times equally.
