Buderus is known for manufacturing boilers, water heaters, heat distribution units (HDU), solar thermal systems, and commercial heat pumps. Their products are designed to be energy-efficient.What is the difference between a water heater and boiler?
A water heater is a storage tank or heating element that makes the hot water that is used in homes, businesses, and other buildings. The water flows out of faucets, water lines, and shower heads throughout the building structure as needed.
A boiler takes heating water a step further. Not only does a boiler make hot water for home use, but the heated water in the tank can also be used to heat the space in the home. With most boilers, the water is heated and then pumped through radiators located throughout the building. As the water flows through the radiators, it gives off heat, which warms the rooms the radiators are located in. The water then flows back to the boiler for a repeat performance.What should be considered when choosing Buderus boilers?
Buderus boilers come in different sizes and efficiency ratings. Which boiler is most appropriate for you to install as your heating system depends on a number of factors, such as your space constraints, the size of the building to be heated, and your overall projected water usage. You also need to consider how your Buderus boiler will be powered as this too will directly affect your purchasing decision. Buderus manufactures gas, electric, and solar heating systems.Are Buderus products energy efficient?
Buderus' solar products are compatible with many condensing boilers. A boiler heating system combined with solar power provides high energy efficiency. You can collect solar energy for use with your Buderus heaters and boilers via evacuated glass tubes or flat plate collectors.How does an instantaneous water heater work?
Buderus partnered with Worcester to make an instantaneous water heater available to customers. These are sometimes referred to as a tankless heater. With a tankless system, water is heated via either a gas burner or electric heating element as it flows through the water system. Another major benefit of the instant system is that it's very compact and won't take up a lot of space.Does Buderus offer spare parts for repairs?
You can find Buderus boiler replacement parts for electric or gas boilers as well as spare parts for water and solar units. Some of the common Buderus boiler parts that you can install yourself include the following:
- Heat exchangers
- Ionization rods
- Oil burner kits
