The Energy Kinetics Accel CS is a condensing gas boiler with an efficiency rating of up to 96% AFUE. The Accel CS was named an Energy Star Most Efficient 2015 product and according to the manufacturer is made with up to 5 times more stainless steel than any other condensing boiler. It is designed for either wall hung or floor mount installation and can be easily converted from natural gas to propane. It comes standard with a 5 zone control, expandable to 12 zones, and can be vented in several chimney and sidewall configurations. The unit uses a stainless steel side tank vessel to produce hot water, and SmartBoost technology allows the system to adjust to changing demands for optimal comfort and efficiency.
I have owned this boiler for 3 years now and have had no problems with it. It is quiet enough that my children in the next room are not awoken by it, and it is efficient enough to save me substantially on my utilities bills compared to when I had my last boiler. I would certainly recommend this brand to a friend, as it has definitely paid for itself in savings. I do not necessarily dislike anything about it. I would certainly buy an Accel brand boiler again. I have never needed a repair.
