Burnham boilers are high-efficiency, versatile boilers designed for durability. They are equipped with technology that helps conserve energy while maintaining comfort. There are three main types of Burnham boilers, each with unique features: condensing gas boilers, cast iron gas boilers and cast iron/steel oil burners.
What are the 10 Best Boilers?
Condensing Gas Boiler
The Alpine condensing gas boiler is a compact, Energy Star-certified unit with a stainless steel heat exchanger. Units in this line can reach up to 91- to 92-percent AFUE ratings and all use either natural or LP gas. The Alpine features monitoring technologies designed to ensure efficient fuel consumption, and all system troubleshooting can be monitored on a touch screen display. They can either be wall-mounted or stand alone to fit the needs of your home. The Alpine is available in seven sizes from 80 to 500 MBH.
Cast Iron Gas Boiler
Burnham’s cast iron, natural or LP gas boilers have models appropriate for homes with or without chimneys. The AFUE ratings range from 80 to 85 percent. Those with an 84- to 85-percent rating are Energy Star-qualified products. These well-insulated heat exchangers come with the Intelligent Hydronic Control System, which the manufacturer says streamlines functions and saves energy. Five models are available to the general market.
Cast Iron/Steel Oil Boilers
These boilers come in three standard models, with additional models for special markets only. Standard units come with a 3-pass cast iron heat exchanger; units with steel heat exchangers also are available. These durable products are largely Energy Star-certified, with AFUE ratings for standard models ranging from 85 to 87 percent. Equipped with an IQ Boiler Control System, these boilers have the potential for up to 15 percent reduced fuel consumption.
Care and Maintenance of Burnham Boilers
Burnham advises that its boilers be maintained and serviced annually by a service technician in accordance with the checklist in the individual unit’s owner’s manual. Important safety precautions for homeowners also are described in the manual.
Burnham Boiler Warranties
The Alpine condensing gas boiler comes with a 5-year warranty with an optional 10-year warranty that covers parts and labor. Burnham’s gas and oil boilers come with a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, as well as an optional 5- or 10-year extended warranty that covers all parts and labor. Registration is required to receive full warranty benefits.
