WHY SHOULD I PREFER A FULL CONDENSING WALL HUNG BOILER?
What are condensing and full condensing wall hung boilers?
Condensation is the transformation of a matter which is in the gas state to the liquid state, generating heat in the process.
In conventional (standard efficiency) wall hung boilers, when natural gas is burned, the resultant waste gas and the water vapour exits directly from the chimney. However in condensing (high efficiency) wall hung boilers, due to a heat exchanger added in front of the waste gas system, the water vapor in the gas is separated before the waste gas exits from the chimney, and transformed into energy to be used again. In this way, natural gas is used more efficiently and harmful gas emissions are reduced.
Full condensing wall hung boilers are high efficiency systems which lead to maximum saving.
Why should I prefer a full condensing wall hung boiler?
First of all, with a full condensing wall hung boiler, one can obtain more heat by burning less natural gas. To clarify with an example, in a conventional wall hung boiler, most of the heat obtained from the natural gas is expelled from the chimney, whereas this loss is prevented in a condensing wall hung boiler. Thus, it is possible to save 25-35% on natural gas consumption with a good building insulation, a sufficient amount of panel radiators, and well planned plumbing.
In full condensing wall hung boilers, the length of the flame can be adjusted according to need; the operation is conducted in a modulated fashion. These wall hung boilers have high burn efficiency regarding consumed gas amount thanks to their fan modulation, and they work much more silently. Condensing wall hung boilers are also environment friendly with their lower emission rates.
What should I consider when buying a condensing wall hung boiler?
When choosing a condensing wall hung boiler, the most important matter is the area of the place to be heated. Then, in order to obtain sufficient yield from the condensing wall hung boiler, you have to check the planned plumbing and the amount of radiators. Condensing boilers incorporate high technology, so it will be good to choose a dependable brand, with a wide service network for the required yearly maintenance checks.
When will the system pay for itself?
Condensing wall hung boilers consume less gas and energy compared to standard wall hung boilers. So, the initial investment cost may seem to be higher, but one will save money once using the condensing boiler. The conditions of the area and the building where the condensing boiler is used, as well as the general climate of the area contributes to the duration. Condensing wall hung boilers usually pay for themselves in 2 to 3 years. For instance, a condensing wall hung boiler in İstanbul can pay for itself in 3 years, whereas in the Eastern districts this duration can be around 2 years. After this period one can continue using the high efficiency condensing wall hung boiler and pay lower natural gas bills.
Which types of plumbing is suitable to use condensing wall hung boilers?
Condensing wall hung boilers can be used in all kinds of plumbing systems. They can work with underfloor heating and regular radiator systems used widely in homes, but they can offer greater levels of energy conservation when used in underfloor heating systems, since these systems operate at lower temperatures.
How much area can I heat with condensing wall hung boilers?
For regular apartments in Turkey with heat insulation, the general heating areas are calculated as follows:
20,000 kcal/h up to 140 m²
26,000 kcal/h up to 200 m²
Also, Baymak’s 35,000 kcal/h rated products can offer efficient heating solutions for big apartments with an area close to 400 m².
How is the system installed and who can do it?
You can apply to the technical service via the corporate web page of the company you bought your boiler from, or you can call the customer service number on the bill. Please don’t open the product package until the authorized service arrives.

What should I pay attention to during installation?
One should take care that the wall chosen for the boiler installation is not moist or inclined. Also the wall should be free from accessories like iron constructions, which can make installation more difficult. If the balcony is chosen for installation, one should certainly have a safeguarding cabinet made for the boiler. Another consideration regarding choosing an installation point is that, the condensed water generated in the chimney during condensation has to be connected to a closed drain. Also one has to ensure that the installation is executed according to the technical specifications of the gas distribution company.
What is the economic life and guarantee period of the system?
State institutions have determined that boilers can be used for 15 years. Depending on the company chosen, the guarantee period can be more than 2 years.
