Energy Savings


30% to 60%

A typical refrigerated
vending machine can
use over 2.600 kWh/yr
At $0.08/kWh = $210/yr

VendingMiser Testing








Temperatures inside the machine ran between 41 and
43
˚F without the Vending Miser. The red line
indicates that power usage was significantly reduced
when traffic was low, nights and weekends.

What are Boiler Controls?


Add
-
on controls to space heating boilers (Hot Water/
Steam) to reduce short
-
cycling & improve efficiency



TDI


Boiler Controls

Boiler Controls work because boilers:


Are Sized for the coldest day



Short cycle



Are Inefficient



Do not have

hot water resets

& other controls
