Customer Question

We have a Weil-Mclain boiler CG-5-SPDN boper and and separate gas hot water heater. What % natural gas saving do you think we might expect by switching to your comparably sized integrated condensing boiler and water heater with a 95 rating? Jim Simko
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: It all works, but we are curious about the economics of updating?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I can think of.

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You'll see about a 12% to 15% efficiency improvement but a 95% condensing boiler is a lot more complex (read expensive to fix) and they have a very short track record compared to your existing boiler.

If you're considering a new boiler solely to save on fuel/operating costs it not cost effetive to swtich to a new condensing boiler.
