Commercial Boilers, Heating & Hot Water

Commercial Heating

Heating a commercial building differs greatly from heating a residential building. Many systems can provide heating and cooling and, in recent years, new technology has made many of these systems more efficient. 

From commercial air source heat pumps and commercial ground source heat pumps to traditional boiler systems, every commercial building needs a reliable and efficient heating design.

Contact Robinsons Facilities Services for all your commercial heating maintenance and repair needs. We have decades of experience in commercial heating and offer our services to businesses across Yorkshire and the North.

Our heating system options for commercial buildings include:

Common Types of Commercial Heating Systems

Heating systems for commercial spaces come in many different forms. The most common heating systems are:

Commercial Warm Air Heaters

Warm air heating is a specific type of heating system typically used in commercial properties. Commercial warm-air heaters create hot air by using forced convection and circulating it throughout the building. They’re highly efficient and provide better air quality than other heating methods.

Radiant Tube Heaters

Radiant heating systems use infrared waves to heat a commercial building. These waves heat objects in the room, rather than the air, and can be more efficient than other types of commercial heating systems.

Air Source Heat Pumps

An air source heat pump takes heat from the air and uses it to heat a commercial building. These systems are becoming increasingly popular as they are more efficient than traditional boiler systems.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

A ground source heat pump takes heat from the ground and uses it to heat a commercial building. Like air source heat pumps, these efficient systems are also becoming increasingly popular.

Commercial Boilers

Boilers are the most common type of commercial heating system but also tend to be the least efficient. They use gas, oil or renewable energy to heat water, which is then circulated around the commercial building to provide heating.

Legal Responsibilities

With many systems, such as boilers, it is your responsibility to ensure that they’re regularly maintained in line with legal regulations. This is to ensure that the commercial heating system is safe and efficient.

The Health and Safety Act is just one of the pieces of legislation that heating systems in commercial premises must comply with. The Act states that:

Employers must make sure there is adequate ventilation in enclosed areas of their workplace.”  

This means that commercial heating systems must be able to provide the correct amount of ventilation for the number of people in the building.

Unsure if you’re compliant with current regulations? Leave it to the professionals at Robinsons Facilities Services to keep your business compliant and running at peak efficiency all year round.

Commercial Heating FAQs

Gas combustion heating systems with radiators are still the most common in commercial systems. However, in-floor heating systems as well as heat pumps are becoming much more mainstream.

While it depends on the building, heat pumps are an excellent option for heating large enclosed spaces, and can do so in an efficient way. They can also work as cooling systems in the hotter months.

Either radiant heating or warm air heating can be good options for large industrial units. Warm air heating warms the air itself whereas radiant heating emits safe radiation from its units to keep people warm.

Some ways you can improve efficiency include regular maintenance, upgrading to newer models, and installing thermostats with better controls.

There are many benefits to having a more efficient heating system, including lower energy bills, reduced carbon footprint, and potential eligibility for government grants.

The UK government offers various grants and incentives for energy-efficient heating systems. For example, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme offers businesses £5,000 for converting to a biomass boiler and £7,500 for converting to an air source or ground source heat pump.

We recommend at least annual servicing to ensure optimal performance and help prevent costly breakdowns which can result in business downtime.

The cost of commercial heating maintenance and repair depends on several factors, including the extent of repair needed, how often the system was serviced, and what parts need to be replaced. With our Planned Preventative Maintenance contract, you can have year-round professional maintenance starting from as little as £250+VAT per annum.
