Made in the United States, Utica’s UB90-200 boiler series is an Energy Star-rated product operating at 90 percent AFUE. The four models of the UB90-200 boiler function with either natural gas or propane.
The heat exchanger is made from cast aluminum, which the manufacturer explains heats faster and transfers heat faster than cast iron products due to the material’s thermal conductivity. The system uses a simple control system, which includes an integrated boiler control. The controls come with high limit and low water cut-offs, a reset feature meant to save fuel and a temperature limit feature. The hot surface igniter and single-stage gas valve are designed for reliable start-up, and all parts are created with easy access for installation and maintenance in mind.
The Utica UB90-200 boiler also is designed with air quality in mind. Instead of using indoor air, the unit’s forced draft design pulls air from the outdoors for combustion. Furthermore, the direct vent system, premix gas burner and low flame temperature result in 30- to 50-percent reduced CO and NOx emissions.
