Flues for boilers

What kinds of boilers are there?

There are many types of different boilers on the market, each with its own characteristics. Some of the features that distinguish them are: the type of fuel, the draught, the presence of a heat exchanger and the thermal output. Some of these features require a specific type of flue for boiler to combine with that specific boiler.

The various types of boilers on the market are:

  • open chamber and gas-tight housing boiler;
  • methane gas boiler;
  • heat pump boiler;
  • condensing boiler;
  • electric boiler;
  • wood, pellet and biomass boiler;
  • masonry boiler.

Our products for the exhaust of fumes are suitable for all kinds of boilers, including condensing boilers.

What is a condensing boiler?

A condensing boiler is a methane gas system that can be installed either inside or outside the building. The main difference between a condensing boiler and a conventional boiler is that the condensing boiler processes the fumes before releasing them thus cooling them and recovering the latent heat which it then uses to warm your house or the water.

The exhaust gases of a condensing boiler reach over 100°C and are then cooled and transformed into water vapour. Since this latent thermal energy is stored instead of being wasted, like with conventional boilers, a condensing system can save up to 100% of the energy it consumes, and, thereby, save a large part of the methane gas it consumes. As a result, condensing boilers have a higher energetic efficiency and a lower emission of gas compared to non-condensing boilers, and can also be combined with modern renewable energy systems.

Which is the right flue system to use with a condensing boiler?

Quite like other combustion heating systems, condensing boilers release exhaust gases.

In order to avoid complications from the exhaust fumes inside the pipes, the system must be installed properly. The exhaust gas that a condensing boiler releases, has a very low temperature and, as a result, the draught of the chimney could be blocked. It is therefore important to have a flue system with thermal insulation in order to keep the exhaust gases from becoming too cold.

The temperature of the exhaust gas of a condesing boiler is decisive when it comes to choosing the appropriate flue system. A plastic polymer flue system could be the right choice for this kind of generator (for internal installations only) since this material resists to both condensation and condensation corrosion.

How much does a flue for boiler cost?

Prices may vary depending on the characteristics of the flue system. More specifically the actual cost depends on:

  • the diameter of the pipe;
  • the material it is made of (stainless steel, copper or plastic polymer);
  • the type of flue system (twin wall or single wall).
