Affordable Energy Consumption

Converting From Oil To Natural Gas
One of the best ways to control your expense when it comes to your building’s heating bill would be converting from #2, #4 or #6 oil burners to natural gas. This will cut your heating bill by at least 30%. Of course, there is an initial expense to convert your system, depending on the size of the building and the burner, but very often the fuel savings is so great that the investment will be paid for within in a 2-year period or less.

Install Separate Hot Water Heaters
Today’s energy efficient hot water heaters cost very little to operate. Installing separate hot water heaters would cut at least 30% from your building’s energy cost. When you have separate hot water heaters, you can shut down the heating plant boiler during the 6 to 7 months of the year when it is not providing heat, and just maintain the two smaller hot water heaters.

The initial cost varies depending on the size of the building, but the return on investment is usually within the first year and a half. As a general rule, the cost for one boiler to be converted from oil to gas should not exceed more than $45,000 for a typical 100 unit building. Very often your current burner can be converted from oil to gas for a considerable amount less than the installation of a new burner. The installation of a separate hot water system should not exceed $30,000 and should consist of 3 separate hot water heaters to keep up the demand of 100 apartments.
