Commercial Heating Options

Commercial Heating Options

industrial boiler repair in MOInstalling industrial heating systems near Clayton MO with sustainable resources is an attractive option offered by American Services.  We utilize energy sources such as solar and geothermal power. Heating options like these systems are good for the environment and are potentially more cost efficient than other options such as oil and gas. Since they often come with high startup costs, this type of commercial heating system is often passed over by smaller businesses with less available capitol.

Selecting an oil or gas steam commercial HVAC system may not be the most efficient choice, but it is one of the oldest and most widespread methods of heating commercial properties. The oil or gas is used to boil, condense and steam flows through the pipes. Besides being relatively inefficient, steam heating also requires additional time to circulate the heat. Once the boiler is started it must run for a while before the heating process begins.

Heating by using a water-based HVAC system is another available option. Much like steam heating, the water heating method requires a boiler to operate. The water flows through the system to radiators positioned throughout the building or property. Water-based heating systems come with their own efficiency issues. First of all, it is necessary to clear the air in the system every time the heating is started which slows down the warming process.

Installing a heat pump is, on the other hand, a more efficient means of heating a building.  Interestingly, this process is heats by using a refrigerant. Then the process continues by pumping the heat generated throughout the commercial property. One of the best things about this method is that it does not require a fuel source to work. The heat pump method is a very efficient system that many folks use for commercial heating in Illinois.

 

 

Industrial Boilers Require Preventative Maintenance

Industrial Boilers Require Preventative Maintenance

commercial heating service in MOBoilers burn fuel to produce either hot water or steam that gets circulated throughout piping.  It is used for either heating or process uses.  Industrial boilers are large financial investments, necessity for ensuring productivity in the workplace.  Preventative methods for ensuring longevity of industrial boilers vary from system to system.  To guarantee reliability and efficiency, there must be a proper preventative maintenance program in place.  Without proper preventative maintenance boilers can become very dangerous.

The three types of boilers are fire-tube boilers, water-tube boilers, and electric boilers.  Fire-tube boilers utilize hot gasses circulating through tubes inside the boiler which are submerged in water.  In water-tube boilers, the gases flow over water-filled tubes.  Lastly, electric boilers utilize electricity to generate hot water or steam.  Most heating systems that have high-pressure or large boilers are water-tube boilers.

The critical components are the parts that affect the reliability of the boiler.  These parts are also directly associated with the safety and performance of the heating boiler.  The critical parts include the drums, headers, tubing, piping, and deaerators.  Other components that need to be regularly checked are air openings, flue gas vent systems, pilot and main burner flames, boiler heating surfaces, and burners and bases.

Qualified boiler installation companies will first conduct an assessment of your location to calculate the requirements for the purpose of sizing a boiler.  Ensure the company you are working with is reputable and dependable.  Ask them to provide you with several references of previous work they have completed.  Additionally, all technicians and engineers must be certified to perform installation and maintenance operations.
