As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, it’s more important than ever to ensure your next building project is considered “green”. Green buildings are known for being environmentally-friendly, innovative, and high quality. In addition to being more efficient, green buildings also often account for more clean air and daylight access, leading to healthier and happier tenants and potentially higher rental or sale rates.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the most popular internationally recognized rating systems for environmentally friendly green buildings. The rating system works by assigning LEED points for each component that goes into the building’s construction, for reasons such as economic viability, level of efficiency, and recycling capability. Depending on the level of points you reach, your project becomes either a Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum LEED building.
Gasmaster Industries high-efficiency stainless steel condensing hot water boilers garner many points in this system. Our units enjoy a small footprint, and the recyclable materials of which they are built have a long service life. Their size gains points because of the lower cost of transportation. What’s more, with efficiencies of up to 99.8% they produce the maximum hot water for the fuel being used, leading to increased savings every month. The net effect serves to substantially enhance the number of points given for components of the mechanical room, a major consideration for LEED certification points.
