Funk Boiler works of West Haven, CT recently completed an energy efficient restructuring of the building’s boilers. The building previously had a single large 400 horsepower boiler, which was one of 3 monster boilers originally installed when the building was built. Two boilers had already failed and they were operating on the third. Funk Boiler was servicing this & trying to keep it alive until the new installation was completed. Funk analyzed and designed for efficiency, installing eight smaller Triad boilers in what is called a series. This allows use only of the boilers needed for both the units and/or hot water use. The installation was completed with heat timer controls and a complete energy management system resulting in substanatial fuel savings. The eight smaller boilers continue to provide scalable heating beyond the output of the three original boilers, with much more efficiency. Each boiler will only run when called upon for demand throughout the daily cycles.
The estimated fuel and energy savings is easily about 30-40%.
Watermark also realized a very substantial rebate from the UI for energy savings upgrades equal to 15% of the project cost.
