NURO BLog Part 2 PictureIn our last blog, we discussed the NURO® Touch-Screen Controller at a high level. We looked at some of the time and cost-saving capabilities of using the NURO® platform to integrate between the boiler/water heater and the building’s needs, and some of the physical aspects of the advanced controller. In Part 2 of this series, we want to dig a little deeper into some of the capabilities that differentiate the NURO® from other boiler controls on the market.

INSIDE NURO

Short cycling occurs when a boiler powers down before being able to complete a typical boiler cycle and is called upon to satisfy a second call for heat, in quick succession. A typical boiler cycle consists of firing, post purge, idle period, pre-purge and then back to firing. Boiler short cycling can be seen in two critical areas; mechanical and economic.

In this blog, we discuss how this affects the boiler and how we can mitigate short cycling and losses incurred from it.
