The RAECO Rents team is working hard to provide you with high quality instrumentation and premiere service and support.

We know it can be difficult to find the instruments you need. To that end, we get in new units  on a regular basis, and are constantly expanding our rental pool.

Thank you for your suggestions so far, guiding us to our latest purchases. If you have other suggestions, feel free to email me, mattd@raeco.com. If we bring your suggestion into our rental pool we will send you a $25 gift card with your first rental of that new product.

Our Instant-On Guarantee

If our rental doesn't arrive in proper working order, it's FREE for as many days as it takes us to get you a working unit.

So, if a RAECO rental unit doesn't work out of the box, and the replacement takes two days to arrive, you won't pay for those two days. Plus, we'll tack on two free days at the end of your rental to make up for any lost time.

Can’t find an item you need on our website? Call 866-736-8347 and we’ll find it for you.

Looking for gently used units? We are ready to sell our older Testo 350-XL, 335 and 330-2 gently-used rental kits. Call for pricing.

Fire up the boiler without burning your fuel budget!

As I watch the leaves start changing and feel the temperature dropping, ‘tis the season to start thinking about starting the furnaces and boilers. And as soon as you do, you’re probably going to think about the high cost of fuel, and how you keep that cost at a minimum.

One of the best ways to save on heating costs is to improve your fuel efficiency. Heat energy leaving the system exhaust flue or stack is the largest single source of lost fuel energy. So, making sure your system is tuned up before the cold season is critical.

How much are we talking? Depends on the boiler power and the cost of fuel. If you can improve equipment efficiency by just five percent, you can save thousands of dollars per year in fuel costs.

Fuel Cost $0.75 $1.00 $1.50 $2.00
100 HP$3,635.00$4,847.00$7,271.00$9,694.00
200 HP$7,271.00$9,694.00$14,541.00$19,389.00
300 HP$10,906.00$14,541.00$21,812.00$29,083.00
500 HP$18,177.00$24,236.00$36,354.00$48,471.00
800 HP$29,083.00$38,777.00$58,166.00$77,554.00

Possible savings per year with a 5% improvement in boiler efficiency, based on 3000 hours per year of operation. Source: Combustion Analysis Basics

RAECO rents Testo portable combustion efficiency analyzers that help you find where your fuel energy and dollars are leaking. They measure flue gas concentrations, temperatures, draft pressure, and more.

Using combustion analysis data to tune your system can save you money, increase safety by identifying unsafe flue conditions that could lead to noxious gases leaking into occupied spaces, reduce your dependence on fossil fuels, and reduce the harmful emissions that produce acid rain.

The Testo 340 portable combustion analyzer kit includes four sensors: O2, NO, CO and NO2, the 1832°F Engine probe with thermocouple. The redesigned Testo 350 Advanced combustion analyzer kit includes five sensors: O2, CO, NO, NO2, and SO2, the 1832°F engine probe with thermocouple, and a dilution module.
