Energy Management - Commercial Products
has been a ProTemp
dealer for the State of Colorado since 1992. We have over 400
commercial boiler and chilled water systems currently being controlled
by ProTemp controllers
- saving our clients thousands of dollars in wasted energy costs.
We look forward to meeting new business associates for networking
and becoming part of our satisfied customer list. Our commitment
to you is to continually reduce your energy consumption while
meeting the needs of your guests and tenants.
The Most Versatile product on the market today!
controls are intelligent user-friendly energy management systems
that reduce gas and electrical costs while producing demand-side
efficiency. They are used on all types of water systems such as hydronic, steam and domestic hot water. With the use of direct
digital computer technology ProTemp
controls successfully reduce gas and electrical consumption yet
still meet demands for heat, cooling and hot water.
ProTemp models we propose
for any given property are designed to give a 2-year or less payback.
However we have seen paybacks as quick as 8 months. Some of the
larger property managers and owners with multiple properties have
not only had a 12 - 16 month payback but continue to recoup thousands
of dollars year after year with ProTemp
installations on their heating and hot water systems.
patented technology offers unparalleled efficiency and
savings for hydronic and steam space heating systems (illustrated
above). By monitoring indoor, outdoor and structural temperature
values, PRO-TEMP instructs the boiler when to fire. Mre
precise boiler controlling means greater efficiency, improved
preformance and significant savings.

Hot Water Controller
PRO-TEMP controllers save energy by
closely matching water to demand as
it varies throughout the day. The difference between the old, constant
temperature and PRO-TEMPS's fluctuating temperature (see shaded
area) reflects a substantial reduction in
energy use. Unlike mechanical timers, PRO-TEMP will override established
supply patterns in the event of unexpected high demand.
schedules water temperatures in anticipation of demand for hot water.
It does this automatically by recording a seven day profile of demand,
then it uses this information to establish a set point. The controller
continually adjusts this setpoint to meet demand, always maintaining
the lowest temperature which will fully meet user needs. This
operation dramatically lessens costly heat loss, lime deposits and
increases the life of the system.
control is provided for up to 12 stages of heat. Temperature inputs
are designed for "supply",
"recovery" and "return" locations.
A built in time clock schedule is also available for special requirements,
such as laundry.
| This controller
features a fully programmable outdoor reset curve which adjusts
steam cycling to maintain comfortable room temperatures. In addition
a time clock schedule supports "morning boost"
and "night setback" to enhance comfort and increase
savings. In a basic configuration, the controller monitors outside
temperature and condensate return temperature. A relay output is
used for on/off control of the boiler.
the ProTemp model,
other features include temperature monitoring, savings analysis,
data logging, remote communication by modem, fax/pager alarms, automatic
fax, graphics, security access and more.
A savings analysis feature is employed in all ProTemp
controllers. The controller does a 24 hour savings test (typically
every 14 days) which compares the baseline run mode (old temperature
setting) to the ProTemp
run mode (modulating temperatures) and documents reduced run
time of the boiler or chiller for that period. A percentage
of savings is displayed on the screen such as 35% (typical
for ProTemp controlled
systems). This gives the owner assurances their system is working.
In addition Triad also does a wrap-up savings analysis at no
extra charge based on a comparison of the prior year's bills
to the current year that the ProTemp
was installed. We use a formula that employs heating degree
days provided by the National Weather Service which gives integrity
to the analysis.
is a recap of a property we installed ProTemp
controls on in 1998:
had (4) ProTemp controllers
installed on (2) Hydronic heating systems and (2) domestic hot water
systems. The property has 278 units. Cost of installation was $14,250.
consisted of (6) buildings with (16) units each. There were (6)
Hydronic controllers installed in 1996 on six central heating boilers
(with side-arm heat exchangers for domestic hot water). A recap
in January of 1998 showed savings of $7,650 after
18 months in service. That of course was when the cost of gas
was $0.35 per Therm. It is now (2001) triple that. The cost
of installation for this property was $7,950.
will vary depending on the application. ProTemp
will work on any type of water (based) cooling and heating system.
We see typically a 25-30% average savings on domestic hot water
systems and 15-20% on hydronic heat systems.
|Even on small
properties 12-25 units per heating system installing
ProTemp is a wise investment. Where
else can you get a 100% return in 12-18 months. Why
Pay Xcel Energy extra money when you can manage your own
systems more efficiently?
Some Say About Us
VP - Asher Investments
"I'm very satisfied with the savings, quality and dependability
of ProTemp controllers. I have ProTemp installed
in three states, Maryland, Virginia and Colorado. I'm extremely

Tony Haschke - Roving Maint. Supervisor - Carmel Companies
"I was skeptical of a boiler control that reset temperatures
on outside air for boilers with sidearm heat exchangers. I didn't
believe that the hot water would keep up with demand. ProTemp
proved itself not only by saving gas usage, it also became a great
troubleshooting tool to fine tune my hot water systems. I would
recommend its usage on any boiler system. We currently have over
100 boilers on ProTemp. ProTemp pays for itself in
a short period of time (usually less than one year) and then it
is dollars in an owners' pocket from then on. Our gas bills have

"We have used ProTemp controllers for several years
now. They do indeed reduce gas costs. In fact several properties
had a payback within one year. We've been pleased with their performance"

with all types of people (owners, managers, maintenance engineers,
service companies etc) that are concerned about rising energy
costs. ProTemp diagnostics
can point out trouble-spots in all water systems. We've helped
owners resolve a lot of problem areas in their systems through
our knowledge of their boilers and related equipment.
