Trane is a leading manufacturer of gas boilers which can provide you with energy-efficient warmth all winter long. It produces two gas-fired boilers – the XR80 and the XB80. Both of them are designed for quiet operation, fuel economy, comfort and long-term efficiency. Their main advantage is probably a resilient cast iron heat exchanger that quietly maximizes fuel efficiency and heat transfer simultaneously. The fuel efficiency can be maximized up to 84% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). This means that you get comfortable heat while using less fuel, and as a result you warm your home at lower costs. Moreover, the boilers require less time to heat a room or home adequately.
As far as they are highly energy efficient, Trane gas boilers are rated Energy Star. The Energy Star program was initiated by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency to identify and encourage energy-efficient consumer products, and eventually reduce greenhouse gases and energy consumption by power stations. Devices which received the Energy Star service mark generally consume 20% – 30% less energy than federal standards require.
Returning to gas boilers, it is important to note that they are also attractively and functionally designed. The control panel covers are flip-up and the controls are encased. Materials for all components undergo multiple tests to prove their high quality.
Though the XR80 and the XB80 are much alike, they differ a bit in the outfit and efficiency. The XR80 has a rating of up to 84.3% AFUE and an induced draft fan while the XB80 is rated up to 83.6% AFUE and has an automatic vent damper.
The XR80 and the XB80 include:
Both boilers are backed by Lifetime Limited Warranties on the heat exchanger, Five-Year Limited Warranties on internal functional parts, and also Optional Extended Warranties are available. Each product warranty is only for residential use.
To sum it up, if you are replacing or upgrading your existing heating system, Trane gas boilers would be a solid investment, as they deliver consistent warmth throughout the coldest months, provide clean air comfort and long-lasting performance. Besides, the majority of older boilers operate at as low as 50% efficiency, thus wasting half of money you spend on heating every month. Unlike them, Trane gas boilers offer improved fuel economy and up to 84% efficiency rating. It means that in no longer than a couple of years they will pay for themselves due to the money saved on fuel.
