If building owners could save thousands of dollars by upgrading their existing power plant, would they do it? Gateway Mechanical’s significant modifications to the North County Christian School’s hot water plant have led to a highly-efficient, water-saving, and economical plumbing system.
Recently, Gateway Mechanical facilitated the replacement of North County Christian School’s antiquated 1960’s boilers. Based on performance and past consumption, Gateway Mechanical found the preexisting, very large scotch marine style boilers, to be inefficient. After running numerous energy models, Gateway Mechanical determined the proper system set up for the North County Christian Schools’ hot water plant.
Gateway Mechanical’s new system at North County Christian Schools is approximately 1/6 the physical size of the old plant. Once completed, a Laclede Gas Rebate netted North County Christian Schools over $10,000.
Three high efficiency condensing class Camus boilers were installed and programmed by Gateway Mechanical’s knowledgeable and experienced staff. The controls lead lag to determine the output of each boiler based on system demand. This management is critical for effectiveness and efficiency.
The work did not end with installation. In order to further improve the operation of the plant, Gateway Mechanical converted the system from a primary pumping system to a primary secondary pumping system. The new system allows water to be pumped based on demand rather than continually. Clearly, this is more cost-effective as primary secondary pumps use less energy at partial load. The existing flue was utilized as a chase for the new PVC flues, and the domestic hot water boiler was replaced with a similar high efficiency condensing boiler.
Gateway Mechanical has helped North County Christian School as well as number of other businesses reduce expenses, become eco-friendly, and create an improved workplace environment.
