The FlexCore 1.5 stainless steel, symmetrical fire tube boiler achieves 95.1 percent AHRI-certified efficiency and utilizes a precisely temperature-balanced FlexCore heat exchanger, which provides high efficiency and maximum durability.
To figure out which efficiency improvements make the most sense, owners usually turn to HVAC professionals to conduct comprehensive energy audits, which are used to thoroughly evaluate existing mechanical systems. While energy audits have traditionally occurred on-site, some firms are offering virtual energy audits.
With today’s technology, it’s possible for a high-performance building to integrate and optimize all its major functions while also ensuring energy efficiency and comfort. Yet, while opportunities abound for HVAC contractors in this niche, many say there are still barriers restricting the growth of high-performance buildings.
The goal of a high-performance building is to optimize its performance and energy use at all times, in all conditions. And, trends in smart controls and system integration are making this goal more achievable than ever before.
ASHRAE is committed to improving the efficiency of the built environment. That commitment is best exhibited through ASHRAE’s standards, which, through constant improvement, continue to raise the bar for building efficiency.
Long before Americans had access to natural gas, propane, fuel oil, or electricity, and long before there were automatically controlled central heating systems, wood was the most commonly used heating fuel.
