1.2.7 Analysis of the combustion and maintenance of heating boilers

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 [...]

1.2.11 Cleaning the radiator surfaces

1.2.11 Cleaning the radiator surfaces Description When the radiator heats up, it causes the air around it to rise as it is heated, and this draws up dusty air from the floors. As the dust sticks on the radiators, it acts like a layer of insulation, which reduces the heat transfer efficiency [...]

1.2.13 Installation of a programmable thermostat

1.2.13 Installation of a programmable thermostate   Description A programmable thermostat offers pre-programmed settings to regulate the building's temperature. Programmable thermostats can store multiple daily settings (six or more temperature settings a day) that can be manually overridden without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program. [...]

1.2.14 Purge radiators at the beginning of the heating season

1.2.14 Purge radiators at the beginning of the heating season Description One of the most common causes of poor performance of a hot water radiator is air trapped in the system. Over time, the repeated heating and then cooling back down of the water in the system causes air to be released [...]

1.2.15 Use ceiling fans instead of air conditioning when possible

1.2.15 Use ceiling fans instead of air conditioning when possible Description Fans can make feel 3 to 8 degrees cooler, allowing dialling the AC to a higher temperature with no reduction in comfort. In temperate climates, or during moderately hot weather, ceiling fans may allow to avoid using the air conditioner altogether. [...]

1.2.16 Relocate thermostats to appropriate areas

1.2.16 Relocate thermostats to appropriate areas   Description To operate properly, a thermostat must be located on an interior wall away from direct sunlight, drafts, doorways, skylights, and windows. It should be located where natural room air currents (warm air rising, cool air sinking) occur. Furniture will block natural air movement, so [...]
