Choosing the correct boiler system can be overwhelming, especially for commercial facilities with specialized needs. Systems that are too large can lead to unnecessary increases in energy costs, while underpowered boilers may struggle to fulfill their roles. The following do’s and don’ts will help ensure your new boiler system is ideally suited for your application.
Consider energy efficiency.
When comparing the costs of various boilers, look beyond the initial investment. A more energy-efficient model may seem more expensive, but the long-term savings often make them a more economical choice.
Choose a trusted brand.
The best boiler manufacturers have spent years refining their products and developing the most reliable, advanced equipment possible. Investing in a trusted brand rather than purchasing discount equipment can dramatically reduce your operating costs by preventing repairs and lowering maintenance expenses.
Forget to consider the fuel source.
Just because your facility is currently equipped to use electricity or heating oil, doesn’t mean you’re limited to boiler systems using the same source. In many areas, converting your building to use natural gas can reduce costs and improve the long-term profitability of your business.
Purchase one without talking to an expert.
The best boiler system for any business depends on the size of your building and the industry in which you operate. Restaurants and manufacturing facilities may have more heating needs than retail stores and office buildings, for example. Consulting with an industry expert before purchasing a system will ensure that your new equipment will meet the needs of your business.
