Solid fuel, such as coal, wood or biomass is a popular source of energy in many homes. Choosing the right boiler is the key to effective and economical heating.
Here are a few steps to help you choose the perfect solid fuel boiler.
The first step is to determine the boiler power that will suit the needs of your home. Seek advice from a specialist who will conduct an energy audit and help you determine the exact parameters you need. You can also turn to our consultants who will help you determine the needs of your building.
High efficiency means lower heating bills. Choose boilers with a high energy class - preferably A or B.
Steel and cast iron are the most common materials for boilers. Cast iron is more durable but also more expensive, while steel is lighter and cheaper but can corrode faster. Our eco-pea coal boilers are made of certified steel and delivered from selected manufacturers. Eco-pea coal burners are made of high-quality gray and nodular cast iron.
Choose boilers with advanced combustion technology - e.g. with a retort fuel feeder or a water jacket. This ensures higher efficiency and lower emission of harmful substances.
Our burners are equipped with optical flame sensors and ceramic igniters. We use Belimo actuators as part of the cleaning drive.
Modern solid fuel boilers are equipped with advanced control systems that allow for optimization of the combustion process and facilitate operation. New controllers used in boilers are getting more and more intelligent.
Make sure that the boiler has all the necessary attestations and certificates that guarantee safety and compliance with environmental standards.
In addition to the purchase price, pay attention to the operating costs. A cheaper boiler may turn out to be more expensive to maintain if it has lower efficiency.
Check if the manufacturer offers a long-term guarantee and if there is a service facility in your area. Konstal has its own boiler service. We cooperate with the driver service. We provide warranty and post-warranty service.
If, like us, you care about the environment, look for boilers that can be adapted to burn biomass, which significantly reduces their negative impact on the environment.
Read the opinions of other users and seek advice from professionals. Their experience can help you avoid possible mistakes.
Choosing the perfect solid fuel boiler is not only a matter of price, but above all efficiency, safety and comfort of use. A thorough analysis of needs and a comparison of different models and their functions will allow you to find a boiler that will best meet your expectations.
