It is now possible to have efficient and comfortable heating and highly efficient hot water production in a single appliance. Combination boilers such as Triangle Tube's Challenger series simplify your utility room by combining your hot water heater and boiler into one unit. The savings in space are joined by energy savings, with the Challenger providing hot water with extremely high efficiency.
The Efficiency Factor, a common method of measuring water heater efficiency, of the Challenger Combination Boilers is 0.85 or higher. This is 40% more efficient than many traditional gas or oil fired water heaters which have Energy Factors of 0.60 or less. The Challenger Combination Boiler's feature a unique dual function heat exchanger which provides both space heating and domestic hot water heating from a single heat exchanger. This allows the Challenger to produce hot water with condensing efficiency, which increases efficiency by up to 10%.
The Challenger Combination Boilers are available in two sizes with heating input of 105MBH and 125MBH and hydronic heating efficiencies of over 93% AFUE. The Challenger models are designed for propane or natural gas. For more information please view literature here and contact your local factory trained contractor.
