Heating Upgrades

In this project the client added radiant heating to a few rooms. Originally the whole house was hot water baseboard heat. The baseboard heat remains in the rest of the house. The old boiler remains too. The control strategy was awful. The boiler maintained its water temperature 100% of the time and even during summer. To correct this problem we added a separate storage tank known as an indirect heater. We changed the boiler to cold start and added a Tekmar outdoor reset controller. The client reported savings of roughly 30%!!

We can assess any heating system and recommend the best opportunities to improve efficiency. The improvements can be as simple as adjusting a screw on a boiler control or adjusting the fuel air mixture in the burner. We can raise the temperature of a solar tank or lower the temperature of a boiler to increase efficiency. We know when to do what and why.
