They offer the potential for high efficiency compared to conventional boilers, but only when designed, applied, and operated properly. The problem is that condensing boilers don’t work like conventional boilers and that difference can cost you money. This learning opportunity will show attendees how condensing boilers work, and what you can do to ensure high energy efficiency. Several real-world examples, backed by metered data, will be presented.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eSpecific Topics:\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eComparing conventional, near-condensing, and condensing boilers\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eHow condensing boilers work\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eAdvantages and Limitations\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFuel options\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSpecial maintenance considerations\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eDesign considerations\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- How to design the boiler system to maximize the condensing operation\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- New construction and retrofit\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e -Space heating and service-hot water applications\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eOperation considerations\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- How condensing boilers differ from conventional boilers\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- Important parameters to monitor\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- When condensing boilers do not condense\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- How to operate condensing boiler systems to maximize condensing operation\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e- Control strategies that work\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eExamples with real data\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVisual interpretation of energy data to improve operations, reduce energy consumption, and increase profits\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis part of the course will cover the various techniques s to analyze data from energy meters.

The instructor will illustrate different visual techniques from the most basic approaches to more advanced strategies. Advantages and limitations of different visualization methodologies will be presented. With proper interpretation, energy data visualization can help you identify new opportunities to improve operations, reduce energy consumption, and increase profits.
