What temperature is MTHW?

There is a tradition of referring to boilers operating in the range 100°C – 120°ׄC as Medium Temperature Hot Water Boilers (MTHW).

What is low temperature hot water?

Low Temperature Hot-Water Heating System – LTW operates within a temperature of 250oF (121oC). The maximum allowable working pressure for a LTW system is usual 30 psi (2 bar).

Which heating system is the best?

In general, furnaces are the most efficient of the heating systems, especially if you have natural gas. They work by heating air with a component called a heat exchanger and pushing it into the home through a duct system, using a fan (often referred to as a blower).

What is a MTHW system?

Medium Temperature Hot-Water Heating System – MTW MTW systems operates at a temperature of 350oF (177oC) or less. The maximum allowable working pressure for a MTW system is usual 150 psi (10.5 bar)

What is the maximum temperature for a hot water boiler?

If you can raise the temperature manually, do not set it any higher than 210°F (which is often the limit), and try to remain down at 190°F if you need the extra heat. Once a boiler starts to go over 212°F, you can face serious problems.

What is the most economical boiler temperature?

75 degrees
To maximise efficiency, we recommend setting your radiator dial to 75 degrees and your hot water to 60 degrees. Once you’ve got your boiler running at the optimal temperature, you’ll want to set the timer for when you need heating the most.
