Steam-as-a-Service for Your Campus
Leave your steam needs in the hands of experts, so you can focus on what you do best: shaping the next generation.
It’s Time to Get Smart About Steam
In education, the calendar is a little different from the rest of the world. From a rush of students in the fall, to the relative quiet of summer, demand for steam can vary dramatically. And the steam infrastructure that provides the heat and hot water your facilities require is often many decades old, and highly inefficient, devouring fuel and precious budgets. Yet contemplating a system overhaul can seem out of reach; capital is hard to find. Steam-as-a-Service (SaaS) offers a cost-effective, on-demand solution.
Seasonal steam. With SaaS, you make — and pay for — only the steam you need. The modular, small-boiler system means you can vary your load dramatically. During colder, busier months, you can run at full capacity, but during warmer, slower months, you can easily cut your load to just the steam you need, thanks to the multi-unit design. And with five minutes to full heat, the on-demand system ends the need for costly redundancy.
Green steam. Climate change is a hot topic, and especially on campus. There’s growing demand to decrease your environmental footprint in every way possible. SaaS offers a cleaner, greener approach to steam generation. The high-efficiency, data-driven system decreases fuel and water usage, and lowers emissions. It’s a more eco-friendly steam solution.
Guaranteed steam. HSB guarantees are part of the package. With Steam-as-a-Service, we take on the risk for you. If the SaaS solution doesn’t meet certain efficiency and efficacy benchmarks, we make it up to you. And those guarantees are bespoke, written to cover the functions you value most.
No capital required. With SaaS, you can replace your legacy steam system with state-of-the-art boiler technology, with no capital expenditures. Let us take care of design, build, operations, maintenance, all for a predictable monthly operational expense. In other words, move steam generation from CapEx to OpEx. It’s a 21st-century approach: SaaS is Smart Steam.
