When you think of heating, the first thing you probably think of is a furnace or other forced-air heater. You can’t exactly be blamed for that, since furnaces have been the most popular heating solution for numerous decades. However, that doesn’t make them the only solution. If you are in the market for a commercial heating system, you should consider installing a boiler. Air Services Unlimited installs, repairs, maintains, and replaces commercial boilers throughout southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. If you need commercial boiler services of any kind, call us today and set up an appointment. We’ll make sure that your building receives the best possible heating solution.
A boiler doesn’t use ducts, as it isn’t a forced–air system. Commercial boiler systems begin with the installation of a pipe network throughout the building. These pipes are installed in the floors, and sometimes the walls, of each room. Occasionally, the pipes may terminate in radiators or baseboard heaters, although this isn’t required. The entire pipe network is connected to the central boiler, which heats water before pumping it throughout the building. As the water flows through the pipes, the heat from it radiates through them and out into the room. This method of heating is known as radiant heating.
There are many advantages to using a commercial boiler in your building. For one thing, radiant heating systems like boilers are far more energy efficient than forced–air systems. The average forced air system loses up to 30% of its total output to duct leaks alone. A radiant heating system, on the other hand, delivers virtually all of its output to the target destination. Because radiant heat transmits thermal energy through objects instead of through the air, it can also keep a room warmer for longer than a forced air system can. This is very beneficial when trying to cut down on operating costs.
Commercial boilers are also better for your indoor air quality than furnaces or other forced–air systems are. A forced air system circulates airborne contaminants that are already present in your building, making it more likely for you or your coworkers to get sick. Radiant heating doesn’t move air at all, so you aren’t exposed to increased dosages of contaminants when you use it.
Installing a commercial boiler is a big job. Not only is the boiler itself huge, but most buildings don’t already have the pipe network in place to serve the boiler. This is definitely not a job that you want done by anyone but a team of professionals. Fortunately, that’s what we’re here for. We provide a full range of boiler installation services.
Just like any other system, though, your commercial boiler is occasionally going to need repairs. If you notice that your boiler is acting strangely in any way, it is important that you call for repairs as soon as possible. The sooner we can fix what’s wrong with your commercial boiler, the better off it will be. We also offer comprehensive maintenance services, which can substantially extend the life of your commercial boiler system. Call Air Services Unlimited today to take advantage of our boiler services.
