Boiler Survey

Boiler Survey

Energy efficiency professionals frequently recommend high-efficiency condensing hot water boilers over standard-efficiency non-condensing hot water boilers. These boilers can be 20% more efficient than existing systems and significantly reduce energy costs. However, we've noticed that some facilities personnel and design professionals do not like condensing boilers. We want to understand why some of you prefer condensing boilers while others do not. If your experience is with steam boilers only, then you can exit the survey because it does not apply.

The following questions are related to your experiences and personal opinions on hot water boilers.  Your input is important and will provide us with insights that we can share regarding potential benefits, issues, and concerns that others may not have considered.  All responses will be kept anonymous.  Thank you for participating in this survey. If you have questions about the survey, please contact SEDAC at 800.214.7954 or info@sedac.org.
