Is Vector likely to cause conflict with an existing Building Management Control System?

No, Vector will not cause any conflict; it is compatible with most existing controls and will in fact improve their performance.

I already have optimisation and compensation, do I still need Vector?

Yes, Vector works on the firing pattern of the boiler and will not affect the preset temperature requirements of the building.

[Return to top]

Can Vector be fitted to older boiler installations?

Yes, Vector will help extend the working life of older boilers and greatly improve their efficiency.

[Return to top]

Will Vector cause any heat loss?

No, Vector is programmed to automatically allow the heating system to reach its optimum operational temperature before imposing savings on the boilers burn time.

[Return to top]

Will Vector cut energy waste caused by Dry Cycling?

Yes, Vector is programmed to cut the energy waste caused by constant boosting by some boilers, which is known as Dry or Short Cycling.

Is Vector a fixed time delay?

Vector is most certainly not a fixed time delay; Vector is a self learning intelligent device that will automatically respond to varying demand and adjust the firing pattern accordingly.

If Vector fails will I lose my heating?

No, Vector is fitted with an auto bypass to enable the system to continue to function in a normal manner.

[Return to top]

Does Vector require an annual service?

No, Vector does not require regular maintenance; it will continue to work for years, providing energy savings year after year.

[Return to top]

I have more than one boiler do I need more than one Vector unit?

Yes, you will need a Vector unit for each boiler to maximise efficiency.

[Return to top]

I have a modular boiler system will Vector react to a change in the sequencing?

Yes, Vector is automatically programmed to recognise which boilers are in the lead or lag position.

[Return to top]

Will I definitely save energy and therefore money if I fit Vector?

Yes, we will only fit when savings can be achieved.

[Return to top]

Will there be disruption of our heating services while Vector is installed?

None whatsoever - our highly trained engineers will ensure that your transition to the world of Vector energy saving will be completed without disruption.

How much will I save?

No fixed savings can be guaranteed, as all locations and systems vary, but we do normally expect savings of between 15% and 25%. However, even greater savings have frequently been achieved.

Will the savings made by Vector pay for the installation?

Indeed yes, Vector will usually save the complete cost of installation within a year, and in some circumstances a full return on your investment can be achieved in just a matter of months.

[Return to top]

Can I monitor the savings made?

Yes, Vector units come with hour- run meters that display both the boiler demand and the actual burn time.

[Return to top]

Will Vector help me cut my carbon footprint and CO2 emissions?

Yes, for every hour of boiler burn time that Vector saves, you will reduce your CO2 emissions by the same amount. If you save 25% of boiler burn time you will also cut your CO2 emissions by 25%
