Take advantage of incentives from our energy partners in Wisconsin, Focus on Energy; Minnesota, CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy and Michigan, Energy Optimization.

Boiler Plant Optimization

PBBS has factory-trained, certified technicians to perform Boiler Plant Optimization (BPO) assessments to make sure your boiler is operating at peak efficiency. Through our detailed BPO program, we inspect and evaluate how a building’s boiler plant is functioning, focusing on efficiency, reliability, safety, and sustainability.

As part of this evaluation, we are able to develop a plan to keep your boiler operating properly until you are prepared to replace the unit. The BPO plan will outline energy-saving opportunities and discovery for emissions reduction through retrofits, rebuilds, and upgrades.

Whether sales or service, PBBS Equipment has been a great experience to work with. No matter the situation, troubleshooting or a service repair, Dan (PBBS Service Manager for SW Wisconsin) would make it happen – even if we didn’t need it right away. It was this trust in Dan that led us to upgrade our burner and controls that helped us with our energy savings.

I’ve been here for over 19 years, and I’ve worked with PBBS for over 19 years. Never looked for anyone else.

Do you relate to any of these
statements regarding your building?

My facility has changed over the years and I want to know if my boiler room and related equipment are still efficient.
I need a boiler standard operating procedure for startup, shutdown, and emergency shutdown.
I want to have an integrated boiler control plan to optimize boiler operations based on increased efficiency and minimizing standby losses.
I’m considering an evaluation of a return on investment regarding scenarios related to a boiler room upgrade and/or replacement.

Your custom Boiler Plant
Optimization plan will include:

Site visit to record the current state of your boiler room equipment
A high-level review of plant utility records
A detailed report outlining key areas related to deficiencies that need to be corrected in order to further optimize boiler plant operations
Roadmap for improvement

Energy Savings

Local energy organizations offer businesses rebates and incentives to reduce energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions. PBBS can evaluate your current equipment and recommend the best path to sustainable energy savings.

Want to go further in depth on learning about energy savings and the cost savings that comes along with that when you have a boiler that not only operates efficiently but is maintained regularly? Our blog post outlining that very thing will be helpful to you!

boiler burner retrofit

Many energy-saving opportunities are realized through boiler updates with your existing equipment. 

  • Advanced boiler controls enable precise fuel-to-air ratio with parallel positioning, oxygen trim, and variable speed drive in one integrated system for maximum operating efficiency. 
  • A boiler economizer system is one of the best additions that can be made to any boiler room. It transfers energy from the boiler exhaust gas to the boiler feedwater in the form of “sensible heat, which reduces the boiler exhaust temperature while preheating the boiler feedwater. This can increase overall efficiency 2 to 5 percent (up to $60,000 per year saved for a 600-HP boiler). 
  • Retrofit your outdated burner to a low emissions high-turndown burner to reduce cycling and dial in repeatability 
  • Expand the type of fuel your boiler with a fuel conversion kit. Multiple fuels will allow more operational flexibility and adjust your fuel as energy prices fluctuate. 
  • System efficiency with condensing hydronic boilers improves at part-load condition as more surface area is available for condensing and maximum system efficiency.
