Commissioning commercial boilers
Commissioning is an essential procedure to ensure your commercial boilers and/or water heaters have been correctly installed and setup. What does it involve and what other benefits does it offer?
Changing heating system design with wide temperature differentials
Wider temperature differentials are increasingly used to design commercial heating systems. We investigate how this affects heating system performance and what you need to understand when designing these systems.
Changing boilers from atmospheric to condensing
Refurbishing a commercial heating system can bring many challenges. In this article, we're looking at older heating systems and what needs to be considered when preparing them for a change from atmospheric boilers to condensing boilers.
Low loss headers explained
Why should you use a low loss header in your commercial heating system? We explain how it works and what benefits it can have for your heating system.
Modular boilers for heat networks
Modular boilers are a compact and flexible solution. In heat networks, they can provide an excellent back up and top up solution to support other equipment such as CHP. Learn more about why modular boilers are being used in district heating schemes.
Comparing direct and indirect fired water heaters
What is the difference between direct and indirect fired hot water systems? What does it depend on and whether I should choose one over the other? We shed light on this topic in this article.
Cast iron boilers
Cast iron is a material that has been used for a long time in commercial boilers. Learn how it has developed over time and why it is still a material of choice in the heat exchanger of our boilers.
What are district heating networks
One of the Government's carbon-saving initiatives is the use of heat networks. What do they consist of and what benefits do they have?
Life cycle costs of a heating system
When purchasing new equipment, there is always the question concerning upfront costs and running costs. In this article, we compare both of them and explain the advantages of looking at the long-term costs of heating equipment.
Boiler heat exchanger for commercial heating
A wide variety of metal alloys are used in commercial boiler heat exchangers. Not every metal is suited for every application, that’s why we’re taking a look at the benefits of each material and for which kind of projects they are a popular choice.
