The article offers insights on conventional and condensing boilers. According to Terry David Crowley of Sellers Engineering Co. Inc., one must ask whether the system is designed to take advantage of a boiler capable of operating in a condensing mode when choosing between conventional and condensing boilers. It cites the differences between the two boilers in terms of operation-and-maintenance procedures. It states the factors to consider when integrating control systems with boilers.
