Description for Buderus GB142-30

Note: Product Title reflects this boiler's IBR Net Output Rating

The state-of-the-art design of the GB142, with integrated controls, is a rare combination of outstanding quality paired with exceptional value. Utilizing advanced condensing technology, the Buderus GB142 Wall-Mounted Boiler maximizes the heating value of every cubic foot of natural gas or liquid propane. All GB142 Boilers now come with the AM10 outdoor reset control and DHW sensor for control of an indirect DHW tank. The GB142 is approved for 3" solid core PVC horizontal and vertical venting.

The small size and minimal clearance requirements of the GB142 Boiler provide tremendous installation flexibility. Thanks to the prefabricated low-loss header, the GB142 Boiler has the fastest installation in the industry. Specially designed with an appropriately sized circulator, this manifold ensures proper flow-rate through the unit. This feature greatly extends the service life of the GB142. By simplifying the piping, the GB142 manifold allows for quicker, easier, and trouble-free installation.

              What's great:
              - Superbly well engineered and constructed.
              - Includes outdoor temp sensor system and low-loss manifold assembly, vastly simplifying setup.

              What would help:
              - Installation documentation hasn't caught up with AMR-10, so you have to interpret the right installation approach among conflicting instructions.
              - A full-size installation template is included with the boiler. If this was available on-line, it would help installers to prepare piping, etc ahead of time.

                    Really love the design, low loss header was easy to attach. Directions on how to setup was easy. Must say unit is in only 4 weeks but seems to perform flawlessly. Highly recommend. Will give another review following our winter months.

                          I've only had it in service for about a month, but it seems to be pretty nice. Endless hot water, very quite & nice heating. I only have it running at 60% because its not that cold out yet.

                              It will, but keep in mind that condensing boilers can only approach peak efficiency when return fluid temperatures are relatively low (usually 140°F or less). Cast iron radiators normally run at higher temperatures (180°F to 200°F), so they are not always the best choice with a high-efficiency boiler.

                            Q:

                            I have a home in Sandgate VT, it is an old railway depot which was remodeled as a home and is well insulated.
                            2200 sq ft. With hydronic baseboard heating and an indirect hot water tank for domestic hot water.
                            The current oil burner which just expired this past winter after 30 years of service is rated at 180,000 BTU - as noisy as the trains this depot used to service.
                            A local Buderus certified HVAC contractor has spec"d this boiler which at 91,000 BTU's is just about half the load of previous boiler. The million dollar question, will this boiler be able to heat this house on those 20 below winter nights?
                            And the other question, as this is a modulating boiler which will be used to heat domestic water during Summer, what is the efficiency of this unit during this period of time.

                              A:

                              We use this boiler to replace a 200000 BTU Ruud boiler installed in 1954. The house is a 1932 masonry semi-detached, is not particularly well insulated and still has the original windows and cast iron radiators. The house is 3300 square feet on three levels plus a basement, in Washington DC. We have enough extra capacity that we are adding radiator heat to the basement. We do have the advantage of a common wall with the neighbors, but it is completely un insulated.
                              If your contractor has calculated this out, he is probably correct. The efficiency of this boiler is easily around double that of your old one. If you are uncomfortable with this choice, then buy the next size up at about 105000 BTU.

                              We would recommend that you have a heat-loss calculation performed on the building to get a definitive BTU requirement. 91,000 BTUs sounds reasonable for 2,200 feet of well-insulated space (and many installers had a tendency to oversize boilers in the past), but it is better to oversize than to undersize the boiler.

                              On Long Island, 35 BTUs per square foot is usually a safe figure, but every house is different. You'd need to perform a heat loss calculation to get an exact figure, but you may also want to try our BTU Calculator: http://www.pexsupply.com/pex/control/BTUCalculator

                              You would be looking at around 30 BTUs per square foot, which, for a brand new home with minimal heat loss, should be sufficient (even in North Dakota). The only way to be 100% sure of your BTU requirement, however, would be to perform a manual J/heat loss calculation.

                              I had this furnace installed in October 2010 in ND. It was a significant decrease in BTU output from original 1964 boiler (140k to 91.5k for 3200sq ft plus a heated double garage) but the installer assured me that it would be enough - and he was more than right. We've never had a cold day in the house since its installation and are really impressed with the furnaces' performance.
