Seattle, Washington is one of North America’s most beautiful locations but if you call Seatle your home, you know that it rains – a lot.  In fact, the Emerald City (as it called) gets an average of 38 inches of rain a year.  The US average is about the same.  That’s a lot of cold nights.

Fionia Apartment Complex in Seattle, Washington needed a new boiler system to replace outdated equipment. When the complex decided to install new equipment, they reached out to a local contractor to take on the replacement. 






 Situation 

Constructed in 1922, the Fiona Apartment Complex is a vintage building settled in  the Queen Anne section of Seattle. The original steam boiler system for the 59- unit 5-story complex, installed 65 years ago, needed to be replaced before a   potential failure. The management team decided to update the outdated heating   unit to be more energy-efficient and reduce heating costs. 
Solution

Clearview Mechanical, a Seattle based contractor, took on the task of replacing the steam unit. They had the task of finding an efficient method of heating that would accommodate all residents of the building while saving space in the mechanical room. 

The Clearview Mechanical team suggested Triangle Tube Prestige boilers installed with a cascaded 3 boiler system to support the needs of the complex. The installed system was efficient and could handle the ever-changing load of the building.

 The Clearview mechanical team went with Triangle Tube boilers for two reasons:

Efficiency- Triangle Tube boilers have a 95% AFUE rating which allows for cost-effectiveness for the residents and potential rebates for the complex. 

Space- The complex engineer and Clearview Mechanical team decided to save space within the mechanical room. Our Prestige boilers can be cascaded in a system that saves space in tight areas.
