In an effort to combat rising energy costs, Doric Property Management chose Lochinvar Knight commercial condensing boilers for conversion from oil fired boilers to natural gas fired appliances in four of their properties in the Clayton Park region of Halifax NS. 21 Chadwick Place, 61 Chadwick Place and 290 Willett Street were each upgraded with three new Lochinvar Knight KBN401 boilers and Armstrong E-Series circulators, 16 Caxton Close used two Lochinvar KBN501 and one Lochinvar KBN500 boiler with Armstrong E-Series circulators.
The newest version of the Lochinvar SMART System control allowed the installations to control zoned domestic hot water tanks on all sites except 21 Chadwick Place, the new ‘efficiency’ mode cascading sequence, as well as being backwards compatible with the last generation of control on the KBN500 used at 16 Caxton Place, without any loss in functions. The new control also allows for up to three separate space heating demands, upgraded BMS functions, seven days of night set-back for space and DHW heating, on screen ramp delay adjustments and additional pumps controls.
All four installations are existing high temperature space heating applications and are already reducing the operational costs of these systems.
