In the late 1970’s, Energy Kinetics founder, John Marran, knew there had to be a better way to heat homes. Many homes were, and still are, heated by cast iron boilers that often weigh more than 400, and even 600 pounds in addition to holding as much as twenty gallons of water. If conventional massive boilers were to start at room temperature, they would take 8 to 15 minutes just to heat up. A lot of energy and time is required before the boiler even begins to deliver heat or hot water. When the thermostat call ends, that 8 to 15 minutes of energy remaining in the boiler is typically lost up the chimney and to the outside. This is especially true in the spring, summer and fall. Even worse, many cast iron boilers maintain temperature all day, which means that they lose energy continuously. Homeowners pay an unnecessary and high cost for all that wasted energy. (If the space around your boiler is warm, especially in summer, you’ll probably receive considerable savings by upgrading to System 2000, 90+ Resolute™, or Accel CS.)
It was clear to John that two things had to occur to improve real efficiency. First, design a boiler that simply weighs less so it can heat up in a minute or two and more heat goes into your home instead of into the boiler itself. Second, anticipate the end of the thermostat call and “move” the heat from the boiler into the home or domestic hot water storage so that no energy is left wasted in the boiler.
John Marran invented the combined heat and hot water System 2000 with these innovative engineering concepts. His design was generations ahead of the industry and has stood the test of time with over 35 years of proven performance. John’s System 2000 low mass boiler with thermal purge or Hybrid Energy Recovery provides dependable heat and hot water at very high efficiency. Today, System 2000, 90+ Resolute, and Accel CS deliver proven savings of up to 40% or more over boilers with similar AFUE. When our low mass thermal purge design was tested against its competitors at the Department of Energy’s world-renowned Brookhaven National Laboratory, it was rated the clear winner.
