This report describes a wide range of energy-saving equipment and modifications to improve overall efficiency of oil heating equipment in Navy residential housing. The equipment and modifications discussed are flame retention head burners, boilers and furnaces, flue heat reclaimers, vent dampers, reduced fuel firing rates, reduced temperature settings, pipe or duct insulation, turbulators for steel tube boilers, and heating system tune-up. Each suggested equipment and modification is described in detail with pros and cons of its implementation, when to consider modification or replacement, possible cost savings, and the expected payback period. This report is prepared in the form of a guide for use by Public Works personnel charged with the responsibility of procuring, installing, operating and maintaining oil-based heating systems for Navy housing. Consequently, detailed methods and techniques of efficiency measurement in the field, basic combustion theory, and copies of six manufacturers installation manuals for widely used retention head oil burner designs sized for small single or two-family residential applications have also been included.
