Condensate-removal pumps for heating are usually used for condensing boilers fuelled by oil or natural gas. Modern condensing boilers condensate the water from exhaust gas in order to additionally gain heat from this. This condensate must be discharged to prevent corrosion and damages in the heating system. This is where condensate-removal pumps come into play, which capture the condensate from the condensing boiler and pump it into the drain or into a different collecting pan. Most condensate pumps can be universally used for all manufacturers. Whether it is a condensate-removal pump for Viessmann, Buderus, etc. - the principle is the same everywhere.
What is a potential test winner of condensate-removal pumps supposed to bring to the table for the heating system?
the condensate pump should be as quiet as possible to avoid unnecessary noise pollution in the house
the condensate pump should be quite compact so that it can even be used when space conditions are limited
there should be a drip pan with float switch so that the pump does not run continuously, and the condensate is discharged only when the drip pan is full
the condensate pump should have a potential-free break contact in order to switch off the heating when the pump fails
the installation material should be included
the condensate pump should have a sufficiently long supply and drain hose
the condensate pump should be as easy to clean as possible
Selection of the condensate-removal pump
If you require a condensate-removal pump for your condensing boiler, you should make sure that it is suitable for the use in condensing boilers and that it complies with the requirements of your system. There are lots of different manufacturers on the market offering condensate pumps for condensing boilers but not all of them provide the same quality and reliability.
Overall, a condensate-removal pump for condensing boilers is an important element to discharge condensate safely and efficiently and to avoid damages to the heating system. If you want to purchase a condensate-removal pump, you should look for quality and reliability to gain a long-term and reliable solution for your condensing boiler.
