How to save on gas (oil or lpg) in commercial heating systems

Boiler nuisance activity is an industry wide problem and is often overlooked as an Energy Conservation Measure (ECM).

Boiler Nuisance cycling is a pervasive problem and can be identified even in new ‘modulating’ and condensing boiler units.  Research has shown that a domestic condensing boiler will only operate in condensing mode for about 5% of its operating time. Ref Danfoss.

So what are some of the indicators of Boiler Nuisance Activity which would require Advance Boiler Control (ABC) AKA, Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM)?   

Here are just a few …

  1. Boilers continuously cycling at low load
  2. Boilers predictably cycling with identical run/rest cycle time frames
  3. Overheating in the Boiler House
  4. Failure of burner ignition components on a regular basis
  5. Constant lag boiler activity when lead boiler is engaged

Boilers are the heat centres of our buildings and increased boiler load monitoring and control can assist in delivering optimum efficiencies and savings.

Cost of M2G Installation: The application of M2G Advanced Boiler Control (ABC) has been shown to reduce boiler dry cycling, increase boiler system efficiency and deliver highly desirable fossil fuel, Co2 and financial savings benefits. You should base your savings on 10% of your annual fuel spend when calculating paybacks on our technology. Typical 2-boiler installation cost (including supply, installation, commission, energy efficiency recommendations and hand over to site) is €6,500 before vat @ 23%.
