The article discusses the misconceptions on maintenance requirement and system cost of condensing boilers which provide energy conservation in the U.S. It notes that the temperature of the water returning to the boiler is the basis for the effectiveness of the condensation. It mentions that moderately warm water is needed for radiant-floor-heating and water-source-heat-pump systems.
