The Laars Mini-Therm JVS series of boilers is a broad application residential boiler designed to fulfill the needs of a large variety of homes. Its most prominent feature is its unique heat exchanger design. A core of small cast iron wet walls is encased by copper in a tubular formation, taking advantage of the best attributes of both metals while removing many potential drawbacks. The built in draft damper helps prevent your gas payments from needlessly dissapearing up the chimney instead of being used to heat your home.
Hybrid Metal Heat Exchanger
The Mini-Therm uses a heat exchanger comprised of both cast iron and copper. Cast iron "wet walls" add durability to the heat exchanger's construction while copper tubes facilitate high levels of heat transfer.
Automatic Draft Hood
The JVS Mini-Therm comes with an automatic draft hood. This draft hood reacts dynamically to the amount of flue exhaust currently being generated, and helps to prevent your energy dollars from needlessly escaping up the chimney before all of their potential energy is used.
Fast Heating Response
The internal design of the Mini-Therm keeps the time between your thermostat activating and heating being delivered to your home to an absolute minimum.
