Description for Triangle Tube CC-125

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

The Challenger Combination Boiler features a unique "Two in One" heat exchanger that provides both space heating and domestic hot water. The Challenger Combination Boiler is designed to fit the needs of today's energy efficient homes.

As a combination boiler, the Challenger eliminates the need for a separate domestic hot water tank. The unique heat exchanger in the Challenger heats domestic hot water directly, allowing the boiler to condense in the DHW mode, eliminating a separate heat exchanger and three-way valve.

Features:

  • Energy Efficient with 96% AFUE
  • Space and energy efficient
  • Dual core heat exchanger with glycol compatible copper waterways
  • Advanced control with near 4:1 modulation and standard outdoor reset
  • Propane conversion orifice
  • EZ Install piping mounting bracket
  • Primary/secondary piping is required
  • Boiler certified to ANSI Z21.12 / CSA 4.9
  • Water Heater certified to ANSI Z21.10.3 / CSA 4.3

Comments about 96,000 BTU Output Challenger Combo Boiler - Space Heating & Domestic Hot Water:

Ok, I have had this boiler for a year...see my other reviews here. All I have is praise so far for this boiler. I did resolve a problem of short cycling described in my second review. I did this by adding an 80 gallon buffer tank. It is a 80 gallon water heater that I put inline so that all water mixes with the water in the tank. A smaller tank would have worked fine, but I got a used one in nice shape really cheap. I removed the heating elements and piped in my water with 1" piping, something else that helped things run better. Now I run a larger amount of water through the boiler. This accomplished 2 things for me...first the water that starts to circulate is already warm. No more hot and cold water circulating through the radiators. What I mean by this is the cold water in the pipes is pushed by the hot and takes a few minutes for all of the water to get to the same temp. With the buffer tank all I get is a steady rise in heat. Used to be able to feel the radiators get warm, then cold then warm, then less cold each pass of the boiler. Tested the system this morning...46 degrees here. I was amazed at how much better things heated up. Not looking forward to winter, but looking forward to a good test of the system. Finally the boiler actually makes it to high fire when several circulators are running, something it rarely did before. Still loving it. Natural gas hookup coming next year which will be nice, running propane now which costs more.

        Comments about 96,000 BTU Output Challenger Combo Boiler - Space Heating & Domestic Hot Water:

        Heats my 2200 sq ft tri level . But not without issues. In its first winter it just randomly stopped. Woke up in morning to a freezing house. Reset and worked just fine.the rest of the winter and the next. Now the direct hot water is another story. The flow switch sticks but thats not even a hugr problem . today my ch sensor died . normally not a big deal either. Lets face it things break. The huge deal is that it will take 2to3 weeks to get a new one. Its a simple thermistor. All boilers have them. If it were winter I would be forced to buy a whole new boiler. Product support at triangle tube is a joke.

        3 month followup Challenger Boiler

        Comments about 96,000 BTU Output Challenger Combo Boiler - Space Heating & Domestic Hot Water:

        I have been running my Challeneger Boiler since September of this year, without problems, but had to make some changes. The first thing I want to address is the Domestic Hot Water {Instantaneous} well, all I can say is don't buy the combi if like me, there are lots of points of use (4bathrooms)The reason being, every time someone cracks a hot water faucet, the boiler instantly drops from heat mode to hot water mode, so say I wash my hands real quick, the boiler stops heating and starts heating hot water. It takes 5-10 seconds to switch over, then a bit more to get up to temp unless you set it to remain warm, which defeats the instant hot water benefits. So I wash my hands, somebody is in one of the three showers, or washing thier hands or doing laundry, the heat may be off some time, and if its below zero...well you get the picture. Thats the only thing I don't like about it. I put in an indirect tank heater. Also, because my zones are broken down to so many small zones (9)the boiler seems to short cycle more than I would like. I think I could have gotten away with a unit half the size, after all, how often are multiple zones on all at one time. Not much here, I have been watching this system closely. Still love how quite the boiler is, and it heats my house and two apartments. The tenants regulate thier heat, and the boiler heats thier water as well as ours, total of 6 full time residents with no problems. One other concern I have is, what if it breaks down? Noone around here carries parts, so hopefully it doesn't quit. I have portable propane heaters in case it should happen. Still haven't tried it on the generator to see how it works yet, something I should do. Overall, love it so far. Too early to judge fuel savings, but appears to be lower. will follow up in a couple months. I would give it a 4.5 star rating if I could. 5 stars if it continued to heat and supply DHW at the same time, it has the power to do both.

        Comments about 96,000 BTU Output Challenger Combo Boiler - Space Heating & Domestic Hot Water:

        I bought the Combi boiler (cc125), it was easy to install, easy to convert from NG to LP, the outdoor reset is awesome, heats quickly and watching the temperature modulation in real time was too cool. Set up of the parameters for outdoor temp limits was easy after reading through the instructions. Supposed to be getting NG in town next year, so replacing the old inefficient oil hog boiler with this boiler was an easy decision. And talk about quiet!...no more hearing the rumble of the aforementioned oil hog. Haven't really tested the DHW feature, but it has to save me a bundle as I feed hot water to a one and a two bedroom apartment as well as my house, paying for electric to do so. Looking forward to lower utilities all around. Originally wanted the Buderus or Viessman, but this is bang for the buck, no regrets yet.

            The boiler has an intake and exhaust connection on top of the unit. Both can be pvc vented, and a concentric vent kit can be used.

            The 102-1 for heating, and the 140N43 for the potable would be sufficient.

          Q:

          Will this boiler work for my application. The house is as follows: 1st floor 750SF in-floor radiant 1/2" pex tubing in the floor joist bays; 2nd floor 350SF heated by hot water baseboard; Basement 750SF heated by hot water baseboard. Two independent heat loss calculations indicated the house requires 50,000BTUH and I was going to upsize by 1.25-1.50 (62,500 - 75,000BTU) The reason that I was considering this boiler is because I want a combo boiler for both space heating and domestic hot water heating. I dont really want to go with one of the smaller Triangle Tube combo boilers because I dont want to sacrifice the 3.0 GPM at deltaT 70F. I also need to use a boiler rather than just a hot water heater because I have a mix of hot water baseboard and radiant in floor. Do you think this boiler would be too oversized for my application.

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            This boiler probably is oversized, especially based on your heat loss calculations, but should still work in your application. Keep in mind that you'd need to operate the baseboard portions of the system at relatively low return water temperatures (less than 140°F) in order for the boiler to operate in condensing mode and be able to approach its peak efficiency capabilities.

          1 answer

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            It depends on the BTU requirement of the condo. You can try our BTU Calculator ( http://www.pexsupply.com/pex/control/BTUCalculator ) to get an estimate. This unit should be sufficient, but may be over sized. Keep in mind that condensing boilers only reach peak efficiency at relatively low water temperatures (150°F and below).

            This unit can provide 3 gallons of hot water per minute at a 70°F temperature rise (which is what you'd need during the dead of winter to get 110°F water).
