Heat a Residential Facility
Bernie Salamie, Capital Climate Services, Hyattsville, Maryland
St. Luke Institute, a private residential facility for clergy
Removal of two 50 year-old triple pass fire tube gas/oil boilers and replace with eight Ultra Gas Boilers
Facility Square Footage & Load Requirement
Building covers over an acre, 3 million BTU
The facility was on an interruptible gas/oil plan with their local utility. To keep the plan savings, the new system was designed to satisfy 85% of the load with the Ultra boilers and 15% with an existing oil boiler.
Why Weil-McLain® Equipment
The Ultra Gas solves all the problems I have had with other low mass boilers. It is small, lightweight and it eliminates the noise and shaking from "steam engining."
My sales representative advised me to do primary-secondary piping, but I started in a different direction. After review, primary-secondary piping was the way to go, and it works great.
