In mid-town, Metro Group upgraded a heating system to meet the latest DEP/DOB fuel oil and energy use requirements. This not only ensured compliance but also eliminated the use of the city’s most polluting fuel, #4 oil. Explore the details of this sustainable heating overhaul and its positive impact on mid-town residents.
Navigating Compliance Regulation Complexities
Our valued customer entrusted Metro Group to navigate the complexities of DEP/DOB regulations to ban the use of #4 oil in NYC. The cornerstone of this project was the conversion of the old #4 oil tank to a cleaner, low Sulphur #2 fuel, meeting the stringent new standards. This shift not only ensured compliance but also contributed to the city’s effort to eliminate the most polluting fuel, enhancing air quality, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Comprehensive Upgrade Beyond Fuel Conversion
The comprehensive upgrade extended beyond fuel conversion. Heating and domestic hot water systems underwent a significant transformation, introducing a new steam boiler, oil/gas burner, vacuum tank, boiler feed tank, domestic hot water mixing valve, and an intelligent heat management control system. This sophisticated control system offers real-time feedback on residents’ heating and hot water requirements, optimizing energy usage for a more efficient and responsive system.
Seamless Transition with Mobile Boiler
To ensure a seamless transition and minimize disruptions, our team utilized one of our mobile boiler units. This innovative approach allowed us to maintain heat and domestic hot water throughout the project, keeping building residents comfortable and undisturbed.
