#3. Condensing Boilers Save Energy through Outdoor and Indoor Resets
Outdoor reset allows a condensing boiler to adapt its output based on the season. Using an external temperature sensor, a condensing boiler will modulate automatically depending on the outdoor temperature. The higher the outside temperature, the lower the boiler water temperature, thus saving energy. After all, homeowners will likely appreciate the extra burst of heat on a snowy January night more than they would say, on a sunny spring day in April.
Of course, there are those people who always seem to run cold no matter what season it is. Here’s where indoor reset makes sense. Some condensing boilers, including the
Bosch Greenstar Boiler, offer this feature for greater accuracy. When indoor reset is enabled, the boiler uses the indoor temperature as a reference point in order to customize its output for ultimate homeowner comfort. It still modulates, but now looks at the room temperature as a way to decide if more or less energy is needed to reach the targeted setpoint of the thermostat.
Aside from the outdoor and indoor reset features, we know your customers are looking for as many ways as they can to save energy and money on their gas bills. Simply by having a condensing gas boiler, they will more than likely qualify for
energy rebates and tax credits. Be sure to share the good news far and wide!
