Outdoor Reset – One of the Keys to Energy Efficiency
November 26, 2014
Outdoor Reset maximizes the effectiveness of a modulating boiler. Modulating boilers have variable outputs rather than traditional on-off boilers which do not have adjustable fire rates. you can think of Modulation as the adjustment knob on your stove. Modulation allows the boiler to run between “warm” and “high fire”. By modulating the firing rate down, the boiler is able to run longer and actually runs more efficiently at lower firing rates.
Outdoor reset will increase the efficiency of most residential and commercial radiant heating systems. It will increase the efficiency of most boilers including gas boilers such as Triangle Tube’s Prestige or Challenger boilers, as well as modern electric boilers such as Triangle Tube’s Century boiler. If you are not currently using outdoor reset, call us today to see if it start saving you money today.
