The article focuses on the evolution of boiler technology in the U.S. since the 1980s. Fan-assisted combustion became the first significant new boiler technology introduced since the invention of gas during the mid-1980s. The recent development of the boiler technology can be associated with three developments that have occurred in control strategies of condensing modulating boilers, including control of a boiler's internal operations and control of and communication with its external systems.
