In times of economic hardship may seem excessive spending, but the replacement of the old boiler can be, right now, a strategic and forward-looking to reduce consumption on heating.

Most units with heating, over 10 years, has served as a boiler room open or sealed gas or LPG traditional. The boiler, after ten years of age starts to consume too much, pollute more and requires greater expenditures of money in case of failures, both for the procurement of spare accessories that for labor.

To consider also that the old boilers to "open room" are much more dangerous for users because poor combustion can enter directly into the local carbon monoxide, gas extremely dangerous to human life. How to recognize the type of boiler? First of all it is good to keep the booklet of the boiler and the operating manual and maintenence specifies the quality of the boiler itself or just "watching" the boiler smmariamente to understand what type it is:

if the boiler is of the type with flame reached, it means that we talk about open roomOr the flames that burn using air from the room as oxidizing. Your boiler is open chamber. Just because it uses oxygen from the air of the room to give rise to combustion, you need to have the air intakes of adequate size (usually on the perimeter wall or glass). In case of malfunction it could prove very dangerous as it is able to enter into the environment of carbon monoxide. E 'therefore essential to carry out regular checks.

if the flame rather not be reached and the boiler start 2 pipes is probably a boiler room closed. One of the two pipes is in fact the chimney, the other of smaller section is the tube that capture the outside air (oxidizing) in order to give rise to combustion. This type of boiler is more secure because in the case of imperfect combustion in the air does not enter the toxic gas.


The power plants with less than 35KW (independent boilers) should be checked every four years, With the exception of boilers open chamber of residential premises or installations over 8 years of age to be inspected every two years. Each Region may make regulations restricting, for example in Lombardy obligation of two years has extended to all installations under 35 KW regardless of age or type. Works with power exceeding 35KW must be reviewed annually.

The responsibility of the review is the tenant and landlord area where the equipment is installed or appropriate Administrator for centralized systems. The tenant is then obliged to periodic verification of the boiler while the owner is obliged to ensure the safe use of the same by any extraordinary measures such as replacing and operations consisting of maintenance.

The maintaining itself is cleaning system using compressed air, controls the operation and safety. The maintenance, to periodicity of law also provides smoke control and consists of measuring the quantity of gas present in the combustion and their temperature, allowing to check both the safety and air pollution. Maintenance can be performed only by professionals registered with the chamber of trade and possess the specific qualification as required by DM 37 / 2008.


Tax incentives allow today to recover the 65% of expenditure for the replacement of the generator (boiler) and installation of thermostatic valves in the case of radiators. But be careful, because it saves on fuel is a must because the rules require that the new boiler has yields minimum wage to ensure the containment of consumption. To obtain the advantages is compulsory to install a system with a yield of at least three or four same. The boiler efficiency is the ratio between the energy produced and the consumed energy (combustion efficiency) and is measured in percentage and number of stars. The traditional high-efficiency boilers have an efficiency of three stars (from the 92 98% on average), while the condensing returns have four stars (even more than 100%, only possible because you enter a parameter that is not in the traditional equipment you can recover and was not included in the calculation of the energy). The cost for a condensing boiler with power under the 35KW can vary from 2.500 5.000 to the euro.


To be eligible for deductions you must forward to ENEA, at the end of the work, the request by compiling with all the required data, the boiler efficiency, amount of the expense that must be paid by bank transfer special. E 'also need to have opened a practice common in housingEven a simple communication to log in for routine maintenance works.
