Boiler, Hot Water and Pipework Installations

Any heating systems usually consists of three components:  the boiler, the radiators and the pipework. The boiler heats the water and (normally) a pump circulates the water through the pipework and radiators and back to the boiler. There are a number of different arrangements of boiler, pipework and supply to the radiators too.

The choice of commercial boiler is crucial.

They work exactly the same as a domestic boiler that you’d find in a home, but they are designed differently to handle the higher demands of hot water and heating. Industrial boilers are no different in terms of how they work – just on a bigger scale. Basically, you need a commercial heating expert like Neil to advise you on capacity, power outputs and brands of commercial boilers.

Power outputs range, typically, from 40KW to over 250KW for commercial boilers, much higher than an average 26KW for a domestic boiler.

Likewise, demands on hot water will vary between commercial settings. A hotel, for example, will have higher demand and need a more robust hot water system than say a primary school, where washing up, washing hands and the canteen will create less demand than 200 people showering every day.

Some questions we get asked as Commercial Heating Engineers

1. Who can install a Boiler?

You should only use a Gas Safe registered Commercial Gas Engineer. They need both the qualifications and experience to install, service and repair commercial boilers. We have that.

2. When should I install a new Commercial Boiler?

There are key factors here that are often telltale signs that a new commercial boiler is needed.  If your heating and water frequently breaks down, then it may be to invest. If your boiler switches itself off, this can be a red flag.  Your premises struggle to heat up when the boiler is running is another sign. Low water temperatures, funny creaking noises and rising energy costs are other signals that it may be time to be contact us!
