3 Types of Commonly Used Commercial Boilers, Union, Ohio

Boilers are an integral part of a building's heating system, which can account for a significant portion of your yearly energy bills. As such, it's vital to use the right type of boiler for your business establishment. But with so many types to choose from, making a decision on a boiler installation can be overwhelming. To make it easier, here are three types of boilers that are often used in commercial settings.

A Guide to Boilers Used in Commercial Settings

1. Commercial

Commercial boilers are pressurized systems that run on natural gas, oil, propane, or electricity. They are designed with burners or electric coils to heat water or generate steam. The hot water or steam is then carried through pipelines and dispersed through a radiator to provide heating inside a commercial facility. Commercial boilers are diverse and work well in apartments, office buildings, schools, airports, and hospitals.

2. Condensing

If energy efficiency is your top concern when choosing a boiler, this type is your best bet. Condensing boiler installations can offer up to 98% thermal efficiency. That’s because they recover some of the latent heat caused by vaporization, thereby minimizing heat loss. 

3. Electric

Electric boilers are clean, compact, and quiet. Boiler installation of this kind is also easy since there aren't any combustion elements to consider. For customers that are limited by emission regulations, an electric boiler is the best alternative to provide hot water or low- to high-pressure steam. And since electrical energy passes through water before being converted to steam or hot water, it achieves almost 100% efficiency.
