: Does anybody know of any case where a central heating plant was shut down and all of the buildings had stand alone boilers(hot water or steam)installed for cost saving purposes. Example: college campuses, bases, etc.
Happens a lot. In most cases the justification is not monetary. It is to get rid of employees. From the cost standpoint it is always cheaper to operate and maintain a small number of large boilers (and their appurtenances) than it is a large number of small boilers.
