A new whitepaper from Weil-McLain outlines the significant energy savings available to property owners and facility managers by upgrading a 20- to 30-year-old boiler with a new, more efficient unit.
For one, replacing a 65% efficient cast iron boiler with a new one that has 84% thermal efficiency or higher will result in significant fuel savings. Space heating combined with water heating accounts for 20.3% of the total energy bill making it the largest energy consuming systems in a commercial building.
Additionally, modern boilers are typically quieter in operation, more technologically advanced and simply better at heating the building. They also offer improved heating controls that can make rooms and offices more comfortable.
