Westfield High School
Housing 1600 high school students, the Westfield High project has replaced the existing dual fired boilers with three dual fired hot water boilers. New piping for oil and gas has been extended to the boilers and new supply and return headers were designed and extended to the system. Provisions for a new boiler breeching system have been installed for the new steam boilers. Since the chimney had no liner, a new stainless steel liner has been installed and the existing combustion/ventilation louver to the boiler room has been modified to meet the latest code. The new boiler system has increased the overall system efficiency from 75% to 83%.
