What sort of boiler do you have at the moment?
To tell a condensing boiler from a non-condensing boiler, look at the flue that sticks out from the outdoor wall adjacent to your boiler – and the type of waste heat it lets out into the atmosphere. A flue is a pipe that takes the exhaust gases generated by your boiler and passes them out through the wall or roof – letting them escape into the air. The end of the flue is covered by a metal or plastic protective cover, which makes sure that a good flow of air is maintained. If the flue is made of plastic and lets out visible steam when the boiler is firing, then congratulations: you are likely to have a condensing boiler already. if the flue is made of metal and no steam is visible, you are likely to have a non-condensing boiler. These older boilers let out much hotter gases that are invisible to the naked eye’ and would melt a plastic flue.
