Cork University Hospital: 10.1% Savings
“this was a simple retro-fit project that delivered significant energy savings to IPMVP standards without any negative impact on the hospital…”

3Arena: 22% Savings
“We have been very impressed with the performance of the M2G units. They have lived up to all expectations and because they are so easy to fit, there was no interruption in service…”
Paul Eggleton, Energy Manager
M2G Advanced Boiler Load Control System is specifically designed to eliminate boiler nusiance activity …
- dry cycling
- short cycling
- boiler response to hydraulic short circuiting
These predictible nuisance activities occur at very low load conditions and are very wasteful of energy leading to increased fossil fuel bills, associated Co2 emissions and un-necessary wear & tear and maintenance on expensive boiler plant.
M2G can be applied on all boiler types e.g. forced draught, atmospheric, single and 2-stage including condensing and modulating boilers, and oil fired boilers but not steam.
In and Out
M2G has two digital temperature probes which are attached externally to the each boiler Return (IN) and Flow (OUT) pipe-work manifold.
The M2G logic monitors temperatures every second and creates a ‘movie’ of circulating boiler water temperatures.
Eliminate Nuisance Boiler Activity
The M2G temperature logic is used to eliminate nuisance boiler activity where boilers respond to their own fixed and predictable heat loss when there is no heating demand.
Savings are achieved by measuring the temperature gradient over time of ‘boiler in’ and ‘boiler out’ water. This additional information enables M2G to eliminate boiler nuisance activity. Savings greater than 10% can be expected in addition to BMS. Savings range from 10% – 25% depending on controls and system set up.
What is dry cycling?
The boiler fires to reach its set point, meeting the building’s heating demands (load). Once the set point has been reached the boiler stops firing.
However, standing heat losses continue and the boiler cools down without transferring this heat to the system load. The boiler will then fire unnecessarily to recover these losses even though the building requires no heat.
Additional Heat Loss
The heat loss is exacerbated when the boiler enters a pre-purge before the next firing to remove any residue of combustible gases.
This is effectively blowing cool air across the combustion space therefore cooling the boiler down before it begins to re-fire.
Continuous Dry Cycling
Dry cycling occurs throughout the year, even if the boilers are just providing hot water generation during the summer months.
Boilers will fire unnecessary to recover standing losses resulting in wasted fuel consumption, costs and CO2 emissions.
Dry cycling can be removed by fitting M2G advanced boiler load control to each boiler. M2G indentifies and removes dry cycling, reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions.

As part of our ongoing cost base analysis, house keeping and energy tracking we can confirm a 20% reduction in our Hotel LPG billConor O Toole
M2G has contributed to a 20% saving in oil costs which have freed up finances to be used in other areas of the complex’Eoin O Mahony
We installed M2G at the Royal Marine Hotel a few years ago and were more than satisfied with how it worked and the savings achievedShane Clancy
Just a quick note to give you a progress report on our gas usage since the installation of M2G …… Our usage for the 3 months Feb, Mar, Apr compared to the same 3 months the year previous has been 5025 units less, which represents almost a 20% reduction in that quarter.Joe Ryan
The installation of the M2G units has reduced our energy consumption by 15% in the smaller sites and nearly 20% in the larger site. This is making a large impact on the Colleges utilities billEamon Commerford
