Dave Yates of F.W. Behler is a contractor that is determined to provide his customers with the highest efficiency and most reliable hydronic heating solutions. His latest project at St. Paul’s Church in Dallastown, Pa is a terrific example of how the latest energy efficient products can both improve the comfort level in the church while minimizing its natural gas and electricity costs.
Dave chose to use two Triangle Tube Prestige Condensing, Modulating, stainless steel boilers to handle the heating requirements. He selected Triangle Tube’s Smart Indirect Fired Water Heaters to work with the Prestige boilers for the hot water needs. Both of the Prestige and the Smart have a minimal pressure drop, which equates to a minimal pump power consumption, another area of energy savings. The low pressure drop through the Prestige boiler also eliminated the need for a primary circulator, which adds further to the electrical energy savings.
The parishioners were also pleased with the low maintenance, stainless steel heat exchanger in the Prestige. This minimizes the annual cost of the hydronic heating system. By combining the Prestige with new flat panel radiators maximizes the condensing efficiency of the system and provides comfortable radiant warmth.
Triangle Tube was proud to be part of this project. The complete article can be found on Green Mechanical Contractor’s website, or directly at http://www.greenmechanicalcontractor-digital.com/greenmechanicalcontractor/spring2011?fm=2#pg1.
