Title:Reducing Operating Costs in School Heating Systems
Author(s):Brotherson, Donald E.
Energy costs
Abstract:This is the third report of a series of studies made on two schools. Research Report 68-2 "Comparative Heating Performance of Insulated vs. Uninsulated Schools" compares the heating costs of two schools - one with more insulation than the other. Research Report 69-1 "Annual Electrical Operating Costs for Two Elementary Schools" reported on the costs of operating equipment auxilary to the heating system. At the termination of the first two years of investigation a study was made to see if the annual heating costs of the schools, while not excessive, could be reduced by adjusting and calibrating the heating equipment and control system. The results of the study indi-cate that significant savings were possible. At one school, heating costs were reduced 11:% while the total amount of energy consumed (gas and electric) was reduced by 12%. At the other school, heating costs were reduced by 34% with total gas and electrical energy costs reduced by 26%.
