Providing proven solutions for comfort, efficiency and energy savings from residences to commercial buildings. Real energy savings are not identified in the AFUE rating system for boilers. Our products and solutions maximize savings by integrating more effectively with existing and new distribution, radiation, and hot water.

Energy Kinetics manufactures the industry’s best rated boilers with up to 97% AFUE and 99% Thermal Efficiency, high enough to qualify your project for virtually all efficiency requirements on incentives and rebates. And since overall system efficiency is where the greatest improvement in savings comes from, we include the industry’s best efficiency control, the Energy Manager, on all commercial boilers. This simple control minimizes idle losses, improves distribution efficiency, and maximizes hot water efficiency, giving your installation higher savings than would be expected based on simply increasing the thermal efficiency. All at an exceptional value for your clients.
All Energy Kinetics boilers deliver exceptionally high recovery rates that can outperform instantaneous systems that require two to four times higher input rates. We pioneered the use of plate heat exchangers and integrated them with our systems to capture nearly the full output of our boilers, so lower total storage is required compared to direct fired water heaters.
Our plate heat exchangers are cleanable and protect your investment from the damaging effects of furnace area surfaces in direct contact with domestic water which plagues both direct fired storage and instantaneous water heaters.
Our energy recovery cycle captures heat left in the boiler and thermally purges it to the storage tank system, capturing more heat out of every energy dollar.
The industry’s preeminent heating, air conditioning and refrigeration engineering society, ASHRAE, has published “Performance of Combination Hydronic Systems” by Thomas Butcher, PhD, as the December 2011 cover story in the ASHRAE Journal. This article highlights that the current practice of labeling heat and hot water appliances with AFUE alone fails to indicate the actual annual performance and to identify the deep energy saving potential possible with a system upgrade.
Energy Kinetics has always been focused on delivering the best efficiency, Energy Kinetics’ heating systems’ performance stands out in the study with the highest annual efficiency and the lowest idle loss (0.15%). System 2000 significantly outperforms the 95 AFUE modulating condensing boiler and all other systems tested from around the globe. Our unique purge control strategy, low mass design, and high performance water heating system results in the top rating, and virtually eliminates the effects of oversizing. The next best system in the study had an idle loss of four times System 2000, which resulted in higher annual fuel use and significantly lower efficiency during hot water production.

Energy Kinetics, Inc. is a national manufacturer of innovative, high-efficiency heating and hot water systems. Since its inception in 1979, this family-owned and operated company has demonstrated a strong commitment to energy efficiency and the environment. Energy Kinetics received ENERGY STAR recognition for its superior efforts to display and promote the ENERGY STAR label. Key accomplishments include:
No matter how efficient you think your heating system is, you can still save up to 40% or more off your heating costs.
You’ve got to see the results of a Department of Energy study that prove our design is the most efficient, and saves significantly over even the highest Energy Guide (AFUE) rated boilers.

The trouble with AFUE ratings: what’s the real efficiency of home heating systems?
Click here to find out how government Energy Guide ratings (AFUE) can misrepresent fuel efficiency by up to 47%. System 2000, 90+ Resolute™, and Accel CS™, and Ascent Combi™ are designed for REAL efficiency, not just for the Energy Guide rating. In fact, AFUE ratings are generations behind today’s technology, and real efficiency and savings are not reflected in AFUE ratings!

In this multi-year study, the US Coast Guard in Kodiak, Alaska, replaced (24) new 85% and 86% AFUE cast iron boilers of various makes, indirect water heaters, and electric water heaters with System 2000 in residences.
The tremendous savings led to the 2007 replacement of another (150) cast iron boilers as part of a Super Energy Saving Performance Contract (Super ESPC) which is run by the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP). This project capitalizes on the expertise and financing of the ESPC contractor to assist the Coast Guard in complying with the recent Executive Order which requires all Government agencies to reduce their energy use by 20% by 2015. The Coast Guard also realized operations and maintenance savings with System 2000 over the cast iron models. The FEMP takes advantage of real efficiency over AFUE, and you can too!

Yellow is the new green. Learn about greenhouse gas emissions.
Of course, saving energy also means cutting greenhouse gas emissions. A typical System 2000, 90+ Resolute, and Accel CS upgrade reduces greenhouse gases equal to nearly an acre of forest every year! Remember, Energy Kinetics’ heating systems are the bright yellow boilers that quietly cut fuel bills!
Estimate savings and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions with an upgrade to System 2000, 90+ Resolute, or Accel CS for all your heat and hot water needs, and compare to other typical systems. Even estimate payback with the help of your installing contractor!
With Energy Kinetics’ heating systems, hot water is readily available through a high performance hot water storage tank. System 2000, 90+ Resolute, and Accel CS replenish hot water as needed, and anticipate when no additional hot water is required. At the end of a hot water call, the burner automatically shuts down, the Hybrid Energy Recovery® cycle recovers heat left in the boiler and delivers it to the hot water storage tank so no energy is left wasted in the boiler.
Energy Kinetics’ heating systems’ whisper quiet operation is extraordinary. The industry leading burner air box design filters out annoying sounds and background noises.
In addition to being efficient, the spiral boiler design of System 2000 and 90+ Resolute, and heavy insulation is an extremely effective noise dampening system – flue products travel over 10 feet before exiting into the flue (and an amazing 18 feet on the larger EK3 models). These features are unique compared to other home heating systems. For natural gas, oilheat or propane, System 2000, 90+ Resolute, and Accel CS lead the industry in noise control.
