Green Buildings

Building under construction

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the most popular internationally recognized rating systems for environmentally friendly green buildings. The widespread acceptance of LEED as the standard for ecologically sensitive construction places a great deal of emphasis on all the components which go into a building. A major consideration is the efficiency, economic viability and recycling capability of all construction components. LEED building standards also account for more clean air and daylight access, leading to healthier and happier employees, and potentially higher residential rental rates.

Gasmaster Industries high efficiency, stainless steel, condensing boilers garner many points in this system. They enjoy a small footprint, the materials of which they are built have a long service life, and the materials are completely recyclable. 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.
