Historic buildings are the gems are our cities. By maintaining their look and condition we not only are conserving the aesthetics of our communities, we are providing an important value to the image and physical state of our city. As a result, property value increases as does tourism.
Maintenance in buildings with outdated infrastructures, however, can be difficult and due to the poor energy consumption systems, can be costly.
In these cases, manual and automatic balancing valves can be inserted into older technologies to enhance heating and cooling systems that are already in place. Control valves help to more evenly disturb heat and air flow in order to reduce wasted energy. According to the city council of the city of Boulder Colorado, the technology to enhance energy efficiency is readily available and can make a major difference in energy consumption. In fact, with rising energy costs of fossil fuels, it only makes sense to look to how to reduce consumption in every area possible.
Another easy medication that can go a long way is to adjust thermostats that control hot water heaters, refrigerators, boilers and air conditioners. For every Fahrenheit degree the temperature is set back it is estimated to correspond to 3 percent savings, according to the Boulder city website.
