Commercial boilers are pressurized systems that burn combustible fuel or use electricity to heat water that is used to provide heating in your building. Some types of boilers use the hot water itself, while others rely on water that has been turned to steam.
Inside the boiler, the burners or electric coils generate heat that is transferred to the water by the heat exchanger. The process creates either hot water or steam, depending on the type of boiler. The hot water or steam is circulated via pipes throughout your commercial facility. The water or steam enters radiators or other components that disperse the heat providing the heating you need to keep your indoor spaces comfortable.
Natural gas is the most common fuel used in commercial boilers. Other kinds of boilers are available that burn fuel oil or that use electric resistance coils to produce heating from electricity.
Boiler systems can provide both primary or auxiliary heat for a variety of systems. Generally, they are paired with a chiller looped within the building. This pairing can significantly lower utility bills and make your facility run more efficiently.
EnergyLink understands how boiler systems work and how to install them properly in your facility. EnergyLink also takes the view that boiler systems are just one part of a whole energy system in your facility; we keep this in mind so you get the best performance possible.
