What Is a Commercial LPG Boiler?
A commercial LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) boiler is a heating system that uses LPG fuel to heat water and provide central heating and hot water to businesses and commercial premises. LPG boilers work in a similar way to natural gas boilers, but use propane or butane stored in tanks rather than gas from the mains supply. They are a popular choice for businesses not connected to mains gas.
Benefits of Commercial LPG Boiler Maintenance
Regular servicing and maintenance of your commercial LPG boiler is important to keep it running efficiently and safely. Key benefits include:
- Improved efficiency – A well-maintained boiler works more efficiently, saving you money on energy bills
- Prevent breakdowns – Catch issues early to avoid disruptive and costly boiler breakdowns
- Prolong boiler life – Routine servicing reduces wear and tear and can add years to your boiler’s lifespan
- Safety checks – Maintenance helps ensure your LPG system continues to meet all safety regulations
- Reduced carbon footprint – LPG boilers produce fewer emissions than oil or coal boilers, making them a cleaner and more environmentally friendly option
How Often Should I Service My LPG Boiler?
We recommend having your commercial LPG boiler serviced at least once a year. For commercial premises with high demand, servicing every 6 months is ideal. Newer condensing boilers may need more frequent inspections to keep warranties valid.
Trust our OFTEC-registered technicians to advise you on the recommended service frequency for your LPG boiler. After each service, we’ll issue a compliance certificate as proof that your boiler has been checked and tested.
What Does a Commercial LPG Boiler Service Include?
LPG boilers function in a very similar way to other gas boilers. Our Gas Safe engineers will thoroughly clean and tune your boiler to keep it in top condition. Checks carried out when servicing your boiler may include:
- Flue analysis
- Combustion testing
- Checking the safety devices and controls
- Inspecting the gas valves, pressure relief valves and stop taps
- Electrical checks of pumps, fans and motors
We can also provide you with further advice on any repairs necessary.
Your business needs a commercial boiler that is reliable, efficient, and compliant with all safety standards, including the storage of fuel that is required with many LPG systems. That’s exactly what we provide with our LPG boiler installation services across Yorkshire and the North of England.
