Why Heat-Timer Controls are Considered Part of a Green Heating Solution
Why is my Heating System Not Already “Green”?
- Instead of placing your boiler on a time-clock, starting and stopping operation at certain times throughout the day, placing a boiler on an optimized start-up and shutdown schedule could drastically save you reheat or overheat energy.
- Boilers are often controlled only by space temperature, return temperature or time-clocks alone. With an automated control system, a boiler can also be controlled by outside air reset configurations. This is where the boiler senses outside air temperatures, and adjusts preheating building conditions to plan for colder days. It can preheat during off-peak hours, not only producing gas savings, but peak cost savings as well.
- Boiler control systems can lack proper valve automations requiring building techs to manually maintain valve settings. With Heat-Timers® tempered hot water control valves installed, the system can plan for tenant operations based on historical trend data. They can preheat storage tanks in the morning instead of time-of-use and can send tempered water to fixtures that use more volume daily, saving on large domestic hot water loop energy losses.
- Heat-Timer Systems can also save people energy. With our completely digital interfaces through mobile devices and the internet, most alarms and setting can be received or modified remotely, leading to a better quality of life for building managers and technicians, not to mention their tenants who get faster response to issues.
