While “green solutions” are often looked at as renewable energy or recycled materials, in the building heating controls industry, this includes solutions that save the customer in overall energy consumption. Less energy used typically means less energy produced which means lower carbon footprint, less pollution from dirty energy sources, etc…
And incidentally, the other meaning of “Green” applies too. Heat-Timer Controls save building operators money, usually big money on yearly heating costs.
The need to maintain heating system efficiency is key creating a green solution. Heat Timer® control systems can offer just that, putting the customer’s mind at ease knowing they’re participating in a green movement, decreasing energy consumption, and extending the life of their boiler and associated subsystems by lowering maintenance and replacement costs.
Why is my Heating System Not Already “Green”?
After a building has been designed and commissioned, there are a number of ways a control system can become inefficient or be forced out of calibration. Many systems even those with newer more efficient boilers, lack the central brain to control and manage a large distributed system, resulting in midnight visits to the boiler room after irate tenant phone calls, just like it was 100 years ago.
Normally, a system will undergo a retro-commissioning or recommissioning effort every 5-10 years. This includes a full building energy audit study of a facility, finding places in the system where inefficiencies have developed over time. This can include: boiler control resets, boiler lockouts, outside air resets, domestic hot water storage leaks, and the list goes on. The point is, this is a lengthy, time consuming and costly endeavor that could easily be avoided through the use of a modern Heating Control system.
