1.2.7 Analysis of the combustion and maintenance of heating boilers

Description

The efficiency of the combustion of a heating boiler is defined by the air-fuel ratio. This ratio is fitted in the regular maintenance of boilers through the adjustment and cleaning of the burners. It is necessary to perform fume analysis periodically to verify that the combustion parameters are within the recommended values.

Benefits

  • Obtain the maximum performance of boilers

  • Optimal combustion

  • It is estimated that the energy saving potential is low (around 10%), depending on how the maintenance was done previously

Limitations

  • Operation and Maintenance (O&M) staff size, skill level, and budget need to be considered

  • Occupant acceptance

Economic assessment

This measure has no associated cost, unless a company for the maintenance of the system is hired (from 200€ a year).
