Burnham’s PVG Series Boilers and SCG Series Boilers offer a unique combination of high efficiency and value to homeowners. They models utilize either 3 or 4-inch stainless steel vent pipe to direct the flue products out of the building. This eliminates the need to install a liner in an existing chimney – which is often a major expense when replacing an older boiler. Burnham PVG and SCG Boiler series are simple to install, and require very little service and maintenance – especially compared to higher-efficiency condensing boilers. This can save homeowners hundreds of dollars in up-front installation costs, as well as several hundred dollars a year in maintenance and tune-up’s.
Factoring in installation, annual service, and fuel usage – over time the operating costs of the PVG and SCG may be well below those of condensing boilers. While low temperature radiant heat systems are becoming more popular in newer buildings, many still utilize baseboard heat, convectors, air handlers. & indirect water heaters – which generally require higher water temperatures. Cast iron boilers are the best choice for these applications. The Burnham Cast Iron Boilers deliver the winning combination of efficiency and durability in high-temp heating applications.
