(NewsUSA) - Wall-hung boilers are here to stay in North America. The reason is simple: appliances, like a wall-hung boiler, are often cutting home heating and hot water bills in half, while freeing up valuable living space and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

More North Americans are becoming believers in a home heating and domestic hot water production system that Europeans have been enjoying for more than four decades. A green, environmentally friendly product is so safe and quiet that it is often installed in the back of a large closet, even in the master bedroom.

A high-efficiency condensing boiler, for instance, dramatically cuts domestic utility energy consumption and costs, while also producing 3.9 gallons of domestic hot water per minute.

In a Buffalo, Minn., installation, a hydronic specialist achieved 98.9 percent energy efficiency in an in-floor radiant heating application for a 3,100-square-foot home. The unit also heats 900 square feet of garage space, in total using just 60,000 BTU/hr of heating output.

Wall-hung boilers are Energy Star certified for energy efficiency, H-Stamp rated for operating safety and fully approved by CSA.
