According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, heating accounts for roughly one-third of the total energy consumption in U.S. commercial buildings, with boilers supplying heat to about 33 percent of total floor space. Keeping these boilers operating at peak performance is the goal of most commercial building owners and managers, who typically want to minimize energy costs and maximize comfort.
HVAC systems in commercial buildings consume a lot of energy, which is why many building owners and managers are looking at replacing their older, inefficient equipment with new high-performing systems.
White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, issued a memorandum declaring a government-wide freeze on new or pending regulations. The HVAC industry has generally reacted positively to this news, feeling that this freeze gives HVAC organizations more time to explain to the administration why these regulations should not be published.
With automatic sequencing, both boilers operate at the lowest rate to optimize efficiencies

With failing boilers and an inefficient heating system, historic Zion Episcopal Church in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, needed guidance and help. New, high-efficiency condensing boilers from Weil-McLain provided the answer to solve their heating woes.
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is calling on the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to follow its own procedures when promulgating rules, and is seeking suspension of a current rulemaking for revising commercial boiler efficiency standards until its established process is followed.

Wilkinson Inc., a commercial and industrial boilers, services, and mobile boilers firm, announced it has acquired Ultra Filtronics LTD, a provider of ultrapure water purification systems for the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Ultra Filtronics will retain its name and operate as Ultra Filtronics Inc.
Boiler efficiency is an important factor in selecting a space heating boiler, but what does “boiler efficiency” really mean? In selecting the right boiler for a commercial application, it is important to understand the difference between the various types of boiler efficiencies.
