Course Summary:

Boilers are pressure vessels designed to heat water or produce steam, which can then be used to provide space heating and/or service water heating to a building. In most commercial building heating applications, the heating source in the boiler is a natural gas fired burner. Oil fired burners and electric resistance heaters can be used as well. Steam is preferred over hot water in some applications, including absorption cooling, kitchens, laundries, sterilizers, and steam driven equipment.

Learning Objective:

Boilers are often one of the largest energy users in a building. For every year a boiler system goes unattended, boiler costs can increase approximately 10% (1). Boiler operation and maintenance is therefore a good place to start when looking for ways to reduce energy use and save money.
