Condensing commercial boiler contributing to industry bottom line through energy efficiency

GHG emissions from building structures have expanded significantly with the surge in the population over the last decade. This in turn has made the policymakers to work aggressively toward the formulation of various new codes & mandates pertaining to building energy efficiency. As a result, builders and architects are also now proactively focusing toward the development of sustainable commercial structures equipped with several energy efficient solutions. Furthermore, the introduction of building codes, government have also announced various labels and incentive programs to promote the adoption of energy efficient products including condensing commercial boiler across establishments. In accordance with the recent industry trends the market size of energy efficient heating systems will witness significant growth in the coming years.

In response to the strengthening of emission norms across the UK commercial boiler industry, market players have introduced new systems with significant improvements in design and control. Many commercial buildings usually install multiple boilers to improve reliability. Modern condensing boilers feature sequence control systems along with remote control features which offer significant energy saving potential. This will extensively raise the penetration of energy efficient water heating technologies, relatively driving the market growth of condensing commercial boiler. Stringent government measures to curb the harmful effects of soaring GHG emissions from the commercial spaces will provide new growth opportunities for the manufacturers of condensing commercial boiler. Further, the need for efficient space and water heating has also resulted in replacement of existing units thereby driving the UK commercial boiler market trends.
