The analysis conducted to modernize the heat source/boiler room in a company is an important process because it allows for identifying issues related to the existing heating system and determining solutions that can contribute to increased energy efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.
An outdated and inefficient heat source can lead to high heating costs, which is particularly significant for large companies. An oversized district heating network and poorly located boiler room can also result in the inefficient use of energy and high costs. Overly high parameters of generated steam or hot water can also be indicative of issues with the heating system that need to be resolved. Poor insulation of heat transmission lines can lead to heat loss, increasing heating costs. Meanwhile, an improperly designed heating system can lead to inefficient energy use and high maintenance costs. The analysis may also include the possibility of using heat pumps with a peak source as an alternative to traditional heat sources. Heat pumps are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly as they utilize energy from the surroundings instead of fossil fuels. These are just some of the problems that can be detected during an energy audit. Through the audit, it is also possible to develop a new heating system design that is more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. The aim of our analysis is to determine the best solution for a given company that will reduce maintenance costs and improve energy efficiency.
