Three types of Burnham boilers

There are mainly three types of Burnham boilers. They are High Efficiency boilers, Forced Draft boilers and Atmospheric boilers. Each has a different function and purpose. Usually for residential use it is best to go with high efficiency boilers. As the name suggests – high efficiency boilers are very efficient and have high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. It means the boiler has an AFUE rating from 75% onwards. They are an economical choice for many families. Forced draft boilers is a boiler which uses air to heat up your houses. It has a power operated fan which provides the boiler with air. They are mainly used in offices, hospitals and shopping malls. They are not fit for residential use. Atmospheric boilers are boilers in which combustion of natural gas is drawn through the boiler without a fan. They are mainly used in the industrial sector as well.

Burnham boilers heating methods and fuel types

Burnham boilers use two types of heating methods. They are Water and Steam. Since Burnham boilers are hydronic boilers, the main heating method is via water.  You can even choose the type of fuel you prefer. Electricity, Oil and Natural Gas are the three fuels that are utilized by Burnham boilers. I would recommend the natural gas boilers if you prefer cheap and green fuel. But you should be very careful in maintaining it as leakages can be explosive.

Burnham boilers models

Burnham boiler models are very specific in their functions. Burnham Series 3 Boilers, Burnham ES2 Boilers, Burnham Freedom Boilers and Burnham Alpine Boilers are some of the most popular models. Among the models, the one which enjoys the immense popularity is the Burnham ALP080W model. It has high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating from 85% up to 95%. As a result, you can enjoy lowered fuel cost. Every ALP080W model is designed to match the fuel consumption that is exactly proportional to the heating demand of the boiler.

It means the Alpine models only use energy that they require and that changes according to the heating demand so that there would not be any waste of fuel resources. The firing rate also coordinates with the outside temperature so that you can have a constant temperature in your house. It belongs to the high efficiency boilers type. As I mentioned above, high efficient boilers work best for houses. So if you want to have a top-notch boiler for your house, use the Alpine series. I hope this article had given you some good insight on choosing you Burnham boilers.

    I need to know what are the electrical requirements for a Burnham gas boiler p-204A-wnv. Watts and Amps information is needed. Can you help ??

  6. Noah Bradshaw Says:

    Have the PV8 6WT TBUF system and love it. Would like to know if I introduce an instant hot water heater to the water line going to the coil will it keep the domestic water heater from becoming engaged (demand for heating water)? If not would I just turn of the boiler during the summer and use the instant heater instead? Do not need to keep water heated during the day when never used.

    I have a 1560sf townhouse in Dillon, CO (altitude = 9300 ft). I’d like to replace the current Teledyne gas fired boiler with 2 zones with a Burnham system.

    I’d like the Burnham boiler to also replace the hot water heater (with tank) to provide a tankless water heater (if possible).

    What model would you recommend?
