Partial load heating: big savings opportunity.
Save on Capital Investment and on Fuel
Community leaders and business owners regularly confront the question, “Is the time right for me to replace my large fossil fuel heating system with a pellet-fired system for the savings that are available in fuel prices?”
While the question is often considered a simple one with only two possible system configurations, all oil or all renewables, there is a third option that deserves careful consideration when doing a cost-benefit analysis to decide when the time is right for your organization to switch to renewable fuels for all the benefits that entails. A part- load capacity renewable heating system has most of the fuel savings benefits of full system replacement with only 60-70% of the capital costs.
