Low NOx Modular Boilers Can Help With LEED Certification
All businesses should have financial goals; that’s a given. But nowadays, it’s also important for businesses to have environmental and sustainability goals as well. With concerns about global pollution and environmental damages that can not be reversed, it’s more important than ever for companies to be aware of the impact they’re having on the environment.
One of the best ways to ensure a business is doing everything it can to avoid being wasteful with resources or causing harm to the environment is by pursuing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Being LEED certified is a sign that you genuinely care about the planet and are willing to do your part to help keep it healthy. There are a number of ways to go about this, but one of the best is by using an energy efficient modular boiler system that lowers your emissions of NOx and other harmful gases.
Miura’s LX series boilers significantly limit NOx emissions compared to traditional boilers thanks to its “no furnace” design. Lowering emissions to a level that meets or exceeds modern regulations can be a big step toward becoming LEED certified.
Another benefit of Miura boilers is that they are designed with modular systems in mind, making the whole system far more efficient at managing your steam demand than older boilers. Regardless of the type of fuel being used, modern modular watertube boilers are more energy efficient, as they are not required to burn fuel in standby mode to keep the large amount of water warm when the plant is in idle like firetube boilers. Aside from helping to save on fuel costs, reducing the amount of fuel used to power your boiler is another positive step forward toward LEED certification.
Of course, it takes a lot more than replacing your old boiler with one that has low NOx emissions to become LEED certified. But it’s a big step in the right direction and sends the message that your business cares as much about being environmentally responsible as it does about making a profit.
