Save money with school boiler optimisers
With winter just around the corner, it’s a safe bet that energy bills are about to shoot up as our heating needs increase. However, there’s some savvy technology around that can help your school cut its heating and hot water costs – with minimal disruption to school life.
This article looks at how boiler optimisers can provide a straightforward, cost-effective solution to reduce energy costs by 15-30%.
What are boiler optimisers?
Let’s start off with the basics and a quick explanation of how boiler optimisers work. In very simple terms, boiler optimisers improve the efficiency of your boiler without adversely affecting the temperature of your building.
They do this by reducing the number of times a boiler ‘cycles’ (or fires up), which means that the overall consumption of oil or gas by the boiler decreases due to fewer firing-up cycles.
Boiler optimisers also calculate how long it takes for your building to reach optimum temperature and adjust the on/off times of the boiler in line with this, to avoid any excess energy consumption.
What are the benefits?
As well as average energy cost savings of around 15%, boiler optimisers can also help reduce your school’s carbon footprint.
Just take a look at our case-study of Hyde Park Junior and Infant Schools who managed to achieve annual energy savings of 15% and a reduction of around 9.45 tonnes of CO2 emissions by choosing to install our boiler optimisers!
One of the key advantages of this technology is that it couldn’t be much easier or faster to install. This means that there’s little disruption to staff, students or lessons. Boiler optimisers can be installed without taking the working boilers offline, for example, so there’s no loss of comfort.
