Buderus Boiler Reviews - Buderus offers hot water boilers with efficiency ranges from 81.5% AFUE to 95% AFUE* for both Buderus gas-fired boilers, and Buderus oil fired boilers. Selected Buderus hot water boilers can also use PVC venting on selected hot water boiler systems. PVC pipe venting is typically for condensing furnace and boilers where the flue temperatures are low.
Condensing boilers can also use 100% outside air for combustion air, so no air is used from inside the structure for combustion air. That eliminates pressure issues related to furnaces and boilers that use indoor air for combustion air.

What is an Outdoor Reset Control?
An outdoor reset control is a device that changes the setpoint on your boiler based on the outside air temperature. It has been tested extensively and is a proven method of reducing energy consumption therefore saving on energy costs. In some regions, if you have an outdoor reset control, you qualify for energy and tax credits/rebates.

The boiler comes in sections and assembled on location. Depending on the number of sections in the boiler will depend on the BTU/h output of the boiler. Here is an example of a section. Some boilers will have a few sections, while other boilers will have multiple sections. It will depend on the amount of BTU/h’s needed to heat the structure. That is calculated using Manual J.

Buyer’s Guide | Buderus Boiler Reviews
In the case of boilers, you have a few options for contractors. In some regions, plumbers install and service boilers. In other regions, HVAC companies install and service boilers. Finally, in some regions, both plumbers and HVAC contractors install and service boilers. Therefore, in some areas, you will have limited options for companies competing for your business, while in other areas, it will be highly competitive.
The key for you is to find the most competent, qualified, and reliable contractor who does quality work. Installation of a new HVAC system, whether it is a boiler or air conditioner, is the most important part of the whole purchase experience.
If you get a bad installation, the boiler will not operate properly. Nor will it give you the rated efficiency. It can turn into a very negative experience for you and cost you a lot of money. Whereas, if the installation is completed properly, it will be something you rarely think of, whether it is running or sitting idle. It will be a worry-free appliance that provides comfort for you.
That is peace of mind, and that is what you will get for getting a competent and reliable company to do the installation work. Try reading our HVAC Consumer Buyer’s Guide for some help. It was mainly written for air conditioners and heat pumps, but some of it is still applicable to boiler installations.
