Steam to Hot Water Conversion
Using steam in a heating system has inherent inefficiencies. Leaks are common, as steam tends to escape from any gaps in the system, which leads to increased energy costs and excess heating in certain parts of the building. Steam production is also an energy intensive process, as the steam must be heated to a high temperature in order to flow through the pipes properly. Hot water systems are more efficient since they have fewer thermal losses and the water is heated to a lower temperature.
At Ecosystem, we excel at performing steam to hot water conversions in complex and sensitive environments. In 2003, we were the first company to design and implement a steam to hot water conversion in a Quebec hospital. Since then, we have converted systems in over 40 complex, occupied facilities in Canada and the US, including numerous hospitals and schools.
