The MegaSteam oil-fired steam boiler was designed specifically for residential use and achieves 86% AFUE efficiency with a 3-pass cast iron heat exchanger - the only one of its kind in the world.
The steam boiler is an old convection heating technology dating back over 200 years and is commonly found in older homes. Because steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot water boilers they are inherently less efficient than their hot water cousins.
Steam boilers benefit from vent dampers more than hot-water boilers, and bigger boilers benefit more than smaller ones. Vent dampers, however, may not be cost-effective with properly sized, newer furnace models. For older oil burners, converting to a flame retention burner (below) is probably a better investment.
From single-family homes to large-scale apartment complexes, the Weil-McLain name is synonymous with warmth and comfort. Our energy-efficient, high quality gas and oil-fired boilers can be designed to fit the tightest spaces, with boiler controls and zone controllers tailored to any size residential application.
An oil central heating system works in the similar way to its gas-powered counterpart, using an oil-fired boiler to heat water, which provides the central heating via radiators and hot water through the taps in your home.
