High and Dry After Flood Damage

Repairing the damage done to your home after a flood can look like an overwhelming job. In most cases, it’s best to seek out the services of a professional flood damage restoration team. But when my home flooded a few years ago, I found out that there were some things that I could do myself. Books, clothes, and even furniture can recover from water damage under the right circumstances. Knowing how to prevent mold, and remove it when you find it, can also come in handy after a flood. I know that it can be a devastating event for a family. That’s why I started this blog – to share my experience with flood damage and share the things that I learned that helped me put my home back together. With both professional help, and amateur ideas, hopefully you can learn something useful from my experience.

Different Ways To Conserve Energy With Your Industrial Boiler

Construction & Contractors Blog

The industrial boiler that is used within your company is probably both one of the most important and one of the most energy-hogging pieces of equipment in the entire building. Stopping using your industrial boiler isn't an option, but there are options that will help you reduce energy use.

Replace It With a More Efficient Model

Industrial boilers that are old can often still be repaired so that they can still be used for many years. However, these models -- just like many other pieces of equipment nowadays, from things that are used in industrial businesses to things that are used in the average home -- just aren't as energy efficient as the ones that are being manufactured today. It's a big investment to make without putting some thought into it, but at least weigh out the potential cost savings of a new, energy-efficient boiler compared with the additional cost of buying a new one.

Buy New Tubes

Installing new boiler tubes on an older boiler is an alternative to replacing it completely. Boiler retubing is usually an ideal way to keep an older boiler working as it is supposed to, increasing reliability even with an older boiler that you might have had trouble with in the past. Retubing a boiler is cheaper than buying a new unit, and it provides reliable and energy-efficient performance.

Stay on Top of Required Maintenance

There are different maintenance tasks that have to be done to keep an industrial boiler running properly. Performing these tasks regularly rather than putting them off keeps the unit in good condition, saving money on costly, unexpected repairs.

Shut It Down When Not in Use

Because of the long amount of time that it can take to get an industrial boiler up and running, you might leave it on all the time, even when it's not being used. This might seem like a good time-saving benefit, and it's understandable to do it on a day-to-day basis. If your company is going to be closed for several days at a time, though, shutting down the boiler and then starting it back up when everyone comes back to work is something to at least consider. This helps prevent wasted energy, gives the boiler's parts a chance to cool down, and even helps prevent safety issues (such as fire risks) when the building is empty and no one is there to keep an eye out for problems.
