Hartford, C.T. – May 25, 2018 – Utica Boilers held its “Bigger is Best” dinner and training event at the Chowder Pot Restaurant on May 8th in Hartford, CT. Over 90 contractors were in attendance for this regional event featuring the introduction and hands-on training of two new high-efficiency condensing modulating boilers, the MAH-165 and MAC-205.

The evening was kicked off with cocktail reception and presentations from Ken Scheer of Dyson Associates and Field Technical Representative for ECR International, Gary Alex. The informative session was followed by a dinner buffet.

“It was a great opportunity to get in front of our customers and giving them a hands-on look at our new larger capacity combi units right out of the gate”, said Joe Langlois Marketing Manager for ECR International. “We expect the momentum from this event to continue into heating season.”

About the MAH-165 and MAC-205:

Available in both Combi and Space Heating models, these MAC (which stands for Modulating, Artificial-Intelligence, Combi) boilers are an extension of the current MAC product, featuring the artificially intelligent control, or AI Control Technology. With this latest innovation, the boiler automatically sets up during initial startup; has the ability to recognize natural or LP gas; and continuously monitors combustion and adjust gas and air flow to optimize combustion and fuel savings. The control also measures water temperature, flue gas temperature, and pressure that can impact the boiler operation and CO levels. The control will shut down operation should any of these values exceed normal operating levels.

The AI Control automatically modulates the gas input to the burner. During times when the domestic hot water or heating demand is high, the control increases the amount of gas in order to meet the requirement. During times when the load demand is less, the AI Control decreases the gas input to use only the amount of fuel necessary.

AI Modulation saves energy by reducing the amount of gas used. Homeowners can enjoy comfort, energy savings, and lower utility bills! By automatically modulating the gas input to the heating level that is needed, the boiler system operates at optimum efficiency.

The MAC is an Intelligent Condensing approach to residential heat and domestic hot water. Our AI control technology is programmed to recognize the presence of an Indirect Tank. Utica Boilers H2O Indirect Tanks range from 30 to 115 gallon capacities and feature 316L stainless steel construction and top connections for easy installation!

When in Domestic Hot Water Mode, the new MAC Combi will fire at 205 mbtu/h and provide up to 5 gallons/minute of domestic hot water. The MAH-165 and MAC-205 are both rated at 164 mbtu/h for Central Heating Mode.
