You saw a savings because of a better burner and possibly set-up. But take all those systems now and bring them up to their mechanical ability(not just the rating plate numbers)and additional savings would be attained each and every time if the O2 or CO2, smoke and CO were the same. Flue temperature will be slightly higher when greater inputs are used but then it should be known that the greater the temperature difference the greater the rate of transfer.Originally posted by beenthere
But i forgot to include on air systems we adjusted the blowers for proper delta, a thing that is sometimes over looked we people down fire.
The annual clening and set ups(after the down firing) were done by the same guy that cleaned all year long, so the set up was reasonably the same year after year.
Hydronic systems were set up for 20degree rise.
Again, many of these down fires where on units that came with becketts and carlins.
Not to debate any thing, but i don't believe combustion eff, is more important then distribution, or vise versa, they must both be correct or the other will suffer.
