Overview of ..
This part of the Energy Efficiency Manual presents energy
conservation measures that improve the day-to-day operation of your
central heating plant. Improving your operating procedures can save
big money at little or no cost.
An important principle is to limit that operation of all boiler
plant equipment to times when it is actually needed. Here are the
methods of tailoring operation to actual requirements. You will
learn how to select and use inexpensive hardware items, including
timeclocks, optimum-start controls, outside air temperature control,
and boiler sequencers.
Other operating improvements that are explained include optimum
fuel selection and control of steam pressure.
