Grand Slam Savings on ESPN Campus

Project at a Glance

Client Need

ESPN, the cable and satellite television network and the leader in sports-related programming, wanted to save money and energy in their executive office building by upgrading their heating system.

Design Solution

We designed a high-efficiency boiler system solution that would meet the client’s desire to achieve significant energy savings.  Their existing systems consisted of a 1.2 million Btu/hr boiler with on/off functionality and efficiency of less than 80%.  Our design provided up to 94.6 thermal efficiencies, Low Nox emissions and a fully modulating burner with 5:1 turndown.

Products Installed

The final design consisted of 4 new Knight XL Commercial Boilers.  The boilers in each building are linked to a Building Management System, which allows for seamless operation. Since the installation, the ESPN team has been extremely pleased with the performance and sizable savings offered by the new KNIGHT XL Boilers.

Project Summary

Over the years, ESPN has thrived on transformation – from pioneering new media to growing its headquarters in Central Connecticut from a couple of trailers to a 123-acre campus. In recent years, the transformation has NewsFile_701817_CIP-35-ESPN-KnightXL-6-13-32continued with a number of efficiency upgrades at company headquarters.

To save money and conserve energy resources, ESPN planned boiler replacements to increase efficiency in the buildings on their campus. In fall 2012 they began a project to upgrade equipment for two of its office buildings.

Building 3 and Building 5, which house executive offices on their campus, were in need of new high-efficiency boiler systems. The existing systems were comprised of a 1.2 million Btu/hr boiler with on/off functionality and efficiency of less than 80 percent.

The new design recommended using Lochinvar commercial boilers to meet ESPN’s needs.  The KNIGHT® XL Commercial Boiler offers up to 94.6 thermal efficiencies, Low Nox emissions and a fully modulating burner with 5:1 turndown.  Since the installation, the ESPN team has been extremely pleased with the performance and sizable savings offered by the new KNIGHT XL Boilers.
