Steam radiators are mainstay of the heating systems in many buildings in the Northeast. Correctly maintained, they provide steady, lasting heat that matches the demand in the space they serve. As building envelopes are continuously improved with better insulation, energy efficient windows and newer doors, heat losses decline. When the same, more efficient buildings are filled with the computers, laptops, tablets, printers, high-tech lighting and other necessities of today’s offices the combined waste heat drives the demand for space heating down. With the lower heating demand most radiators in facilities today are over-sized.
CUT HEATING COSTS UP TO 20%
It gets too hot or too cold.
There is unnecessary wasted heat and energy.
Individual rooms get heated to a specific temperature you choose.
Tremendous savings by getting the temperature you need where you need it.
Instead of replacing and/or resizing existing steam radiators, manyfacility managers are opting to install thermostatic radiator control valves (TRV’s) to deliver steam only when it is required in individualspaces. In addition, many models offer “locks” that can limit thetemperature in individual spaces to a pre-set temperature.
Heating costs decrease an average 3% for every degree you lower your thermostat.
