Commercial Boilers, Heating & Hot Water
Heating a commercial building can prove to be a very different proposition from heating a residential building. There are many systems that 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 through to traditional boiler systems, every building has its own design.

Types of Commercial Heating Systems
Commercial heating systems come in many different forms. The most common commercial heating systems are:
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. These systems are becoming increasingly popular as they are more efficient than traditional boiler systems.
Boilers are the most common type of commercial heating system. They use gas, oil or renewable energy to heat water, which is then circulated around the commercial building to provide heating.
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.

With many systems, such as boilers, it is your responsibility to ensure that they are 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 commercial heating systems must comply with. The Act states that commercial buildings must have suitable and sufficient ventilation. This means that commercial heating systems must be able to provide the correct amount of ventilation for the number of people in the building.

Commercial Heating FAQs
Gas combustion heating systems with radiators are still the most common in commercial systems, but 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.
