What is the difference between controlling with time rather than temperature?
Time is a universal method of control. As you increase or decrease the time of fire on a boiler, you are changing the btu supply from the source. That could be a steam boiler, air conditioning compressor, a chiller, geothermal, or heat pump system.
Temperature is most effective with Hydronic systems because it is a stable measure at the supply output. Exquisite Heat analysis of indoor load demand allows for precise adjustment of supply temperature from the boiler.
How does Exquisite Heat fit into the carbon reduction program?
Firstly, boiler carbon emissions can be reduced by 10-30-% with better more accurate brain power for the boiler. Precise BTU supply for BTU load is the "cats meow". No other method can do this at such a minimal expense. When further conservation methods are applied to the structure, the load changes, and Exquisite Heat brain power immediately adjusts to the reduced heat load. Secondly, If carbon reduction is to be replaced by electric heat, The building will be ready to require a minimum load from the electric grid, which will be overloaded. Thirdly, most heating and cooling systems are oversized by design to avoid performance shortfall complaints to the designer. Exquisite Heat tames these oversized systems to the precise size they need to meet actual heat or cooling load. This help to save the planet carbon emission load and a wasted energy expense for the system owner.
Why has it taken so long to hear about Exquisite Heat Technology?
We discovered Exquisite Heat after many years of research and experiment from 1979 to 1998. Being a small operation our discovery did not have the resources to expand rapidly in the market place. With minimal marketing resources, the marketing was limited to personal relationships, developed over time. We have not been able to reach the 5 Million applications available as well as we wished. The trade did not see it as an improvement, but as a hindrance to their existing profit motives.
Boiler operations are not sexy. Most building owners have little clue as to the potential benefits for precise operations to their bottom line income. Current trade mechanics do not know about Exquisite Heat technology. Like most professionals, they fall behind the times. Their relationships are welcome for sure. Most are just too busy, as the number of tradesmen are dwindling due to society's aspiration to have careers requiring few basic trade skills.
We are happy to know that you have found us. The need is universal, and the application of the technology, very broad if we are going to reach our carbon emission reduction goals for the future.
Why could you not sell it to a large corporation?
Large Oil and Gas has not shown an interest in conservation. That would reduce their profit for Wall Street. Boiler companies do not want their boilers to last forever. Any metal engineer will tell you that operating boilers at lower Delta temperatures ( 20 F) will allow them to not have the metal fatigue that now occur in boilers with fixed high limits and high (100 F ) Delta Temperatures. Exquisite Heat control adds a boiler safety level, by shutting down the system if the brain recognizes and fault. Fix it then turn it back on.
