Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Gas is the most affordable fuel in Russia. That is why the owners of houses, summer cottages and small businesses prefer to heat the premises with a gas boiler. The old Soviet cast iron devices were replaced by elegant and lightweight models. Foreign brands have entered the domestic market, which are seriously competing with Russian equipment. On the one hand, the range of boilers has expanded, and on the other hand, buyers have problems with choosing a suitable model. Expert recommendations will help you find the best option for your home in the sea of ​​gas boilers.

How to choose a gas boiler

  1. The number of contours. The selection should start with determining the number of contours. Single-circuit models are capable of providing heat to the heating system. To heat the water, you will have to buy an additional boiler. But double-circuit boilers simultaneously heat the house, providing residents with hot water.
  2. Mounting. The type of installation distinguishes between floor and wall devices. The floor-standing models can boast of higher power. Moreover, they are more bulky and heavy. Wall-mounted boilers look more elegant, they allow you to save space in the boiler room, which is important in cramped utility rooms.
  3. Power. The most important parameter of the heating device is the heat output. For houses with good insulation and standard rooms (height 3 m), it is customary to determine the power indicator using a simple formula. With the help of 1 kW of heat energy, you can heat an area of ​​10 sq. m. In old houses with poor thermal insulation, it is necessary to install a boiler, the power of which is 20-50% higher than the calculated one. A double-circuit boiler is also selected about 20% more powerful so that heating hot water does not adversely affect the temperature of the coolant. For example, for heating a dacha with an area of ​​70-80 sq. m it will be enough to buy a boiler with a thermal power of 8-12 kW. Large house or cottage with an area of ​​over 200sq. m is able to heat a device with a power range of 22-35 kW. Experts do not advise chasing models that are too productive, frequent turning on and off the burner will strain the residents.
  4. Safety. Gas equipment belongs to devices dangerous to human life. Therefore, it is necessary to study the safety systems in the boiler. The standard set of a modern gas boiler includes gas control, protection against overheating and pump blocking, autodiagnostics, and a safety valve.

In our rating, experts have selected the 18 best gas boilers for home heating. When determining the winners, feedback from domestic consumers was taken into account.
