Annual Boiler Service The old adage “a stitch in time, saves nine” is almost an understatement in the context of boiler maintenance. With boilers often in constant service and fulfilling critical heating functions within buildings – ranging from domestic residences to major airports – it makes sense to keep them running ...
An Opportunity for Savings Automatic Heating presents an infographic on the potential savings available to Australia’s commercial sector through the use of superior high efficiency condensing boiler technology as compared to conventional boilers. According to studies by Pitt & Sherry, the proportion of the total gas used that produces heating and hot ...
In this article, we’ll be answering a question often encountered in the industry: whether condensing boilers offer a benefit in retrofit 80°C/60°C installations.
In this article we look at how the savings are actually better than just the improved combustion efficiency, due to better part load performance and lower operating temperatures.
Condensing water heaters achieve higher energy efficiency than standard boilers by condensing the water vapour in the flue gasses and using the latent energy recovered through this process to heat the return water. The condensate produced is highly acidic and requires treatment before discharging to waste.
This is the first of an enlightening series of articles on Condensing Boilers contributed by Dr Paul Bannister, a thought leader and public speaker on energy and energy efficiency issues in Australia.
Without doubt one of the most advanced condensing water heaters of its kind, Meridian offers a host of features designed to enhance performance and ease of installation. Being truly compact, versatile and highly efficient, Meridian has proved its worth in many new and retrofit installations. This video explains how Meridian Condensing ...
Where redundancy is required for critical heating processes, such as the ongoing operation of health care facilities, dual fuel burners can provide uninterrupted operation in the event of a primary fuel disruption. In some applications where boilers provide heating hot water, domestic hot water and steam – such as hospitals ...
Prefabrication is the practice of assembling components offsite, and moving them to the building site where they are placed into position. While nothing new, the practice is an emerging one in the HVAC industry and the advantages are significant. Why build on site if you don’t have to? That’s the question ...
Corrosion and system inefficiency are serious – yet easily avoidable - side-effects of gases found in cooling, heating and condenser systems.
It’s fitting that the emerging technology of phase change material is a key feature of the innovative new building at Swinburne University: the aptly-named Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre.
The problems associated with the presence of gases in heating, cooling and condenser water systems are significant, yet often overlooked. And alarmingly, new installations are just as much at risk as older systems. Oxygen. Hydrogen. Nitrogen. These are just three gases commonly found in the water of heating, cooling and ...
