What this means is that we take care of your boiler upgrade from inception to implementation and operation.
Other companies might do the engineering, sell equipment, do the install, or do the maintenance. Alodyne does them all.
It’s quite simple, actually. Alodyne lowers your heating bill by using less fuel to generate the same amount of heat that your current boiler does.
It starts with an internal ASHRAE Level 1 energy audit at your facility, after which we select a boiler that improves your current energy efficiency.
Unlike other companies, we are not locked into a certain brand of boiler. This means we can select the size and style right for your facility. We finance the equipment, install it, and make sure that it runs properly. Typically, we reduce our customers’ fuel consumption by 20-30%. Lower fuel consumption means lower bills and a more predictable fuel cost, year over year.
You could, but consider the time and energy you’ll spend researching the best boiler for your property – we’ve seen plenty that are improperly sized for the building -- not to mention the hassle of making sure that it runs efficiently every single day.
With a typical new boiler installation costing upwards of $100,000, this kind of capital improvement is usually left on the back burner until a catastrophic failure causes a last-minute decision scramble. With Alodyne, your company does not have to finance its boiler and does not have to manage its operation. Ever.
That’s right, there is no out-of-pocket expense for the system upgrade. Because the equipment is Alodyne’s, there is no capital expense to your budget for the best new boiler available and for Alodyne’s 24/7 monitoring of its functionality.
We choose the best equipment for your building’s energy profile from established manufacturers like Viessmann, Capstone, and Weishaupt. With us, you’re not limited to one manufacturer or service company.
We can often install this new equipment alongside your existing boiler, which can be retained as back-up system. We own the new equipment and are responsible for all aspects of its operation, ensuring that it operates at peak efficiency for the duration of your contract by monitoring it remotely all day, every day, with our metering and monitoring system. Your backup boiler will continue to operate using the fuel supplier you currently have – although many of our clients no longer need this additional equipment after we revise their system – and our new, efficient boiler will run more effectively on cleaner fuel to deliver your energy with a reduced carbon footprint.
We sell the heat that we generate for you, on a monthly basis. This cost of heating usually is covered 100% or more from the savings, meaning there is no out of pocket expense.
In fact, by signing an energy services agreement with Alodyne, you will create an annuity for the next 15 years.
People sometimes view the cost of fuel and the cost of heat as the same thing. However, the cost of heat is actually quite a bit more complex.
It includes your capital costs for equipment and installation, the ongoing service costs, unforeseen maintenance costs, any potential downtime losses, plus your cost of fuel.
Most of the facilities analyzed to date fall within a savings range of $10,000 to $100,000 annually. Greenhouse gas emissions also typically show a substantial reduction as well.
That said, it’s tough to give you a concrete number until we’ve completed the analysis on your building. There are just too many variables influencing the efficiency of your system. We can say that the money saved on fuel typically more than covers Alodyne’s heat charge.

We have real-time data access to the boiler’s data points and fuel and heat meters that are checked every day.
Any abnormal information triggers an alert that is sent directly to our service company. If something breaks, we repair it. Anytime. Immediately. And if we can’t fix it, we replace it. No extra charge.
Outsourcing your heat production is relatively new to Maine, but is gaining in popularity due to rising energy costs.
Heat management has been popular for more than 25 years in Europe where relatively higher fuel costs have forced businesses and institutions to do all they can to maximize efficiency. Technical advancements with both boiler and monitoring equipment have made this type of approach all the more possible.
Back in the early 19th century, steam engine inventor James Watt was one of the first heat management providers!
That’s right, energy management is as old as the Industrial Revolution. Take a look at his proposal. Sound familiar?
"We will leave a steam engine free of charge to you. We will install these and will take over for five years the customer service. We guarantee you that the coal for the machine costs less than you must spend at present at fodder (food) on the horses, which do the same work. And everything that we require of you is that you give us a third of the money, which you save."
Yes! Our clients include the Jordan Hotel and Grand Summit at Sunday River and Gould Academy in Bethel. For more on these projects, check out our Case Studies.
Not at this point.
Our typical customers are hotels, hospitals, and schools with annual fuel usage of 20,000 gallons and more.
Plenty, including an improved LEED rating and a greener profile for your business.
We can help your property maintain the continuous improvement required by the ISO 50001. Because of our energy-efficient systems, your building can increase its Energy Star® score and gain LEED points. Both of these certifications can enable the building owner to qualify for better loan terms and improve the image of your company. Through our Energy Services Agreement, Alodyne can help dramatically reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the host site -- another benefit for your company.
