Boiler pilot study

District systematically improved boiler efficiency by 11.3% per boiler

From December 2015 through mid-January 2016, Fireye United Technologies Corporation (and APS) conducted a gratis pilot experiment at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School, Harrison Middle School, and Ventana Ranch Elementary School to prove that their NXM2G Firebox could substantially optimize the efficiency of the schools’ boilers. The NXM2G Firebox, a little brain with sensors, installed on the schools’ buildings and boilers, enables each boiler to ramp down if it is not calling for heat (is sufficiently warm). Boilers have been designed to always be on, even when unnecessary. Considering the 11.3% per boiler improved efficiency, use of the NXM2G is being expanded within the District.
