FEW WAYS TO MAKE YOUR BOILER MORE EFFICIENT
Over half your energy costs are probably associated with your boiler, so improving boiler efficiency is a simple way to save money.
You want some excess air as it's absolutely necessary for the boiler's combustion process, but you want just the right amount - neither too much, nor too little. Try to find that ideal balance to achieve optimal combustion.
Reducing scales and blowdown to their optimal level is another helpful tip. In each case there's an optimal level to help your boiler's efficiency.
Did you know that just a small increase in scale thickness can increase your boiler's fuel consumption? So reducing scales even by just a small thickness can really make a noticeable difference and help reduce your energy bills.
You can also make a difference when you regulate your blowdown rate. Too little blowdown leads to the formation of deposits, whilst too much wastes energy. Yet again it is a case of finding your boiler's optimal level.
Don't forget that a good economiser uses waste heat to pre-heat the feed water going into the boiler and this can help efficiency too.
