Heating Efficiency for Businesses

Heating efficiency can help your business—and your bottom line.

During long, cold weather months, keeping your heating equipment performing as efficiently as possible will help save energy and reduce costs.

Here are effective steps you can take to make an impact:

  1. Upgrade your facility’s natural gas heating system with qualifying high-efficiency equipment.
  2. Reduce heat loss by insulating pipes.
  3. Maintain your boiler with regular tune-ups for optimal efficiency, emissions and safety.
  4. Repair or replace steam traps to minimize heat loss.
  5. Take system improvement measures with equipment add-ons such as modulating burners, controls, and stack dampers.
