*Editor’s review of the best upright vacuum cleaners. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, it is not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to purchase. Consultation with a specialist is necessary before purchase.
While blue fuel in Russia is still the most available raw material for thermal energy. Therefore, gas boilers are very popular in the domestic market. The distinctive features of these heating devices are reliability, durability, ease of operation, easy maintenance. Since many of today’s models are equipped with electronic control, the consumer is required to bring the place of installation of 220 V outlet and buy a voltage regulator. Recommendations of our experts will help potential buyers to find their model in a variety of gas boilers.
Wall mounted gas boiler selection recommendations
Construction features. Search for the right heater should start with its design.
- Single-circuit models have a narrow focus, heating the coolant in the heating system. They are characterized by simplicity and affordable price.
- The two-circuit devices look more complicated. They can perform two important tasks at once: to warm the house and provide hot water to the occupants. Such a boiler costs more, but in the end the consumer will be able to save.
EFFICIENCY.The efficiency of the gas boiler is determined by the efficiency factor. This indicator is expressed as a percentage, the higher it is, the less loss will be when burning blue fuel.
- Modern convection models quite effectively burn gas, their efficiency reaches 92-93%.
- Condensing boilers are about 12-17% more efficient, so the efficiency reaches 106-109%.
Accessories. Many users, buying cheap gas boilers, faced with additional financial costs. That is why when choosing a model it is necessary to pay attention to the presence of a circulating pump and an expansion tank. It is also not unreasonable to consult with installers about the ducts and chimney.
Safety.The blue fuel, despite its environmental friendliness, poses a danger to the occupants of the house. The gas has a poisonous effect on humans, and in case of an accidental spark, the gas mixture can explode. The most important elements of the boiler safety are:
- gas control;
- air vent;
- safety valve.
If the boiler is installed in the country, it is worth giving preference to models with protection against freezing, overheating and pump blocking.
The material of the heat exchanger.The most aggressive environment for the heat exchanger. The outer wall is exposed to high temperature, and the inside is destructive to the coolant (water or antifreeze). The most durable heat exchangers made of copper, aluminum and stainless steel.
We selected the 12 best wall hung gas boilers in the review. All of them are sold in the Russian trade network. When assigning the places, the editorial staff of exprtology magazine based on experts’ opinions, taking into account the reviews of users.
