A tremendous number of colleges, universities and K-12 schools in the United States and Canada are being heated and supplied with hot water by boilers that are decades old. These aging central plants are often tasked with supplying more steam, hot water and building heat now than when they were commissioned.
Today’s energy-saving building designs focus on reducing thermal loads in order to conserve energy. As a result, boilers that were installed 25 years ago may now be oversized. Fortunately, today’s boilers and ancillary equipment are also more energy-efficient, providing cost-effective and sustainable options for both steam and hot water.
Our electric boilers and steam generators are easy to maintain, take up less space than fuel-fired models, and they are extremely responsive to fluctuating load demands.
Contact Precision Boilers about your facility needs, and we can help you choose the best boiler for your application.
At Precision Boilers, we work with all stakeholders to ensure central steam plant, physical plant or heating plant upgrades are innovative and unique. We take the time to assess the opportunities for reducing total operating costs and improving sustainability for your campus.
Rather than simply sizing boilers for peak thermal demand, we evaluate seasonal shifts in demand, the plant’s dynamic load profile, actual operating boiler efficiency, as well and daily and hourly fuel costs. We use this information to create a strategy for managing energy throughout the school year when heat and hot water use are high, as well as off-peak times like summer and winter breaks. Then, we’ll recommend the optimal boiler package for your educational institution.
Often, we’ll put together a mix of both electric and fossil-fuel fired boilers. This allows education facilities to take advantage of off-peak electric rates and enjoy the lowest total energy costs. It also helps heating facility managers adhere to environmental regulations and can be used to negotiate future fuel price increases.
Precision Boilers designs and fabricates a wide range of electric and fuel-fired boilers, along with the related ancillary equipment for primary and secondary education campuses:
