Keeping over heads and process costs to a minimum is a goal for any business, and gaining or maintaining control of your heat management can make a big difference to this goal.
We’ve suggested 3 ways you can reduce your heating maintenance costs…
Whilst potentially spending more money on servicing may sound counterintuitive to a reduction in maintenance costs, regular intervention from a competent servicing engineer could potentially save you hundreds of pounds in call out fees and hours of down time.
Having your boiler serviced in accordance to manufacturer guidelines can reduce breakdowns and improve efficiency, so you do get a return on your investment.
Get a second opinion
If your installer designed a heating system that was over or undersized, so paired incompatible plant room and secondary side parts your boiler could be under performing.
An oversized system will short cycle, turning on and off more frequently to meet your heat and hot water needs, most likely consuming more fuel and wearing parts, shortening the life of your boiler.
An undersized system will work continuously, causing your boiler to breakdown and wear parts.
If you suspect your system isn’t performing as it should, getting a second opinion on the suitability of your heating solution from a trusted M&E team could pinpoint where you can improve and ultimately save on maintenance costs.
Use Intelligent Management Tools
Maintenance and energy management are closely intertwined – when real heat demand is managed your plant room equipment isn’t over worked, reducing the wear on parts.
A smart BEM solution will also alert you to errors within your heating system and allow you to resolve issues before a loss of heat or further damage occurs.
