Instead of the high temperature (200 ² 250¦C) flue gases and water vapour discharging to atmosphere, they are recirculated around the water jacket by a fan. This fan must be fitted with a sensor to prevent the boiler firing in the event of failure. Condensation of vapour in the flue gases is drained to a suitable outlet. The overall efficiency is about 90%, which compares well with the 75% expected of conventional boilers. However, purchase costs are higher, but fuel savings should justify this within a few years.

W ˆ J/s. Many manufacturers still use the imperial measure of British thermal units per hour for their boilers. For comparison purposes 1 kW equates to 3412 Btu/h. Boilers normally have two ratings, input and output. Input is the potential heat energy in the volume of fuel used to fire the boiler. Output is the input, less allowances for energy lost converting the fuel to heat, transferring this into the water and any energy losses in the flue gases. g. if a gas boiler has input and output ratings of 30 kW and 24 kW respectively, the efficiency is 24/30 \ 100/1 = 80%.
