Choosing boiler retrofits to save money

According to the Department of Energy, nearly 80% of boilers in the United States are 30 years or older and up to one-third of a facility’s energy bill can come from the boiler plant. While purchasing a new high-efficiency boiler or replacing an older boiler is an option to achieve energy savings, it is not the only way.

If replacing a boiler isn’t an option because of budget constraints, retrofitting an old boiler is one way to bring it nearly up to par with today’s new systems. Boiler retrofits can optimize system performance while still utilizing much of the boiler core components.

P1 Group specializes in identifying and providing efficient solutions to customers’ energy concerns. We have a longstanding history of service excellence. Working together with our customers, we help identified an opportunity to improve boiler plant efficiency without the need for complete equipment replacement.
