What We've Done

AERCO's commercial condensing, high efficiency boilers and water heaters are the trusted heating systems in thousands of installations nationwide. To see examples of our installations and how we’ve provided significant ROI and added value to various applications across a broad range of commercial and industrial markets, read our case studies below.

The Innovation Provides the Ideal Retrofit for this Major Convention Center Hotel

When the north tower of this major convention center hotel was built in 1984, its 681 rooms and 25 floors got their hot water from two 3000 MBH copper fin water heaters and a massive 7,000 gallon tank. After 15 years, the tank was severely leaking and was replaced with two gas-fired 2800 MBH 1,500-gallon storage tank heaters. The retrofit required an expensive crane to haul the oversized units to the 26th floor mechanical room.

A Rewarding Lesson In Energy-Efficient Economics for a California University

A Northern California university was interested in upgrading its space heating and domestic hot water heating systems in a number of its dormitories. The building relied on a centralized system supplying steam to heat exchanges for space heating and to indirect domestic water heaters. The system was meeting the building’s needs, but it was far from efficient. The university’s plant had to operate continuously to meet year-round domestic hot-water demands, which cost a small fortune just to operate. Inefficiencies were in the 50 to 60% range, and the system was getting old.

Boiler History Lesson Helps University Of North Texas Save Money And Energy

Over the years, David Young, utilities supervisor at the University of North Texas (UNT), has learned the value of AERCO high-efficiency boilers. Since 2002, 20 of the company’s Benchmark units have been installed in various buildings throughout UNT’s Denton campus. In every instance, the performance and cost savings that these fully-modulating and condensing boilers provided were more than he imagined.

Whenever This Major Hotel Upgrades, It Asks For AERCO

This airport hotel is a 392-room facility built in 1981. Located by the Nashville International Airport, the facility also boasts 25,000 ft. of meeting rooms, a ballroom, a kitchen and small laundry. The original hot water system consisted of two copper fin tube boilers with two large, horizontal storage tanks; along with a third copper fin tube boiler with a large vertical storage tank. Despite the hefty system, it didn’t adequately supply enough hot water — forcing the hotel to discount or refund room charges. The installation of a 2,000-gallon storage tank didn’t help.

For this Elder-care Facility AERCO Turned an Aging System into a Model of Efficiency

This Pennsylvania nursing home is a 395-bed facility. A central plant of three, 40-year-old oil-fired steam boilers—supplying three u-tube semi-instantaneous indirect domestic water heaters and a 250-gallon storage tank—provided space heating and domestic hot water for the facility. The system was meeting demand, although it was old and very inefficient—calculated in the 50 to 60% range. A gift shop, located above the boiler mechanical room, had to run air conditioning year round, because the excessive heat would melt the shop’s chocolate.
