Buderus G215/6 Forced Hot Water Boiler Replacement Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA
The Strout family wanted a reliable boiler to bring efficient heating to their Manchester-by-the-Sea home. Our solution to their needs was a Buderus G215/6 Forced Hot Water Oil Boiler.
Buderus has a long and established history in the heating application industry. In 1731 they started as a charcoal blast furnace plant that supplied hobs and stove plates and various other products. Today, they are the industry leader in next-generation heating technology with their durable, energy-efficient, and innovative home heating systems.
Buderus created a full three-pass system, which increases the efficiency in all of their boilers. The G215 boiler allows the water to be heated three separate times to extract and deliver more heat from the fuel. To keep the heat insulated, Buderus designed a 3” thick thermal insulation jacket to help maintain higher water temperatures. The blue-enamel jacket holds heat exceptionally well. It will maintain a higher water temperature after the boiler has gone into its standby mode.
Features and Advantages of a Buderus G215 Boiler:
- 86% AFUE ratings
- Energy Star Certified
- Limited lifetime warranty
- Durable blue enameled jacket
- Easy access full swing burner door
- 5 model options (134 MBH to 294 MBH)
- Flue connection and rear tappings
- Flushing the boiler through front access plugs
- Operates at low return temperatures
- Evenly distributes water flow through all boiler sections
- Baffles and clips to adjust stack temperatures
Buderus G-Series boilers are designed and built to the highest of industry standards and are acknowledged as the leader in high-efficiency, low-emission hydronic heating. With their innovative designs, quality in the manufacturing process, and performance, Buderus is ideal for new installations or as a replacement for any boiler.
