Commercial Heating Engineer
Commercial Heating Engineer
Commercial heating system is crucial in both your business or other commercial buildings. By controlling the temperature, you control your comfort, and that’s too important to neglect. At UK Gas Plumbers, we understand the importance of maintaining your commercial heating system. Since we are experts at commercial plumbing and certified to handle commercial boiler installation throughout the UK, we are your number one choice for handling your commercial heating system.
Why choose our commercial heating engineer?
In many cases, building owners assume that they can have a regular plumber look over their commercial heating system and everything will be fine. Since we are certified in commercial gas installations, however, we are better equipped and have more appropriate tools to look for things like gas leaks on commercial properties, failing components, and other problems with your commercial heating system.
When should you contact A commercial heating engineer?
There are several different tasks that our commercial heating engineers can tackle, but there are three that are the most important.
Maintenance and repair of current systems: When you have a commercial boiler or other commercial heating system, it needs both regular maintenance and occasional repair. We can either come out for a maintenance call when you request one or set up a contract that specifies when we’ll visit so you don’t have to remember. Repair generally happens when there’s a specific issue; if it’s not something urgent, you can call and schedule a regular appointment. For emergencies, however, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Call us any time, and we will dispatch a technician to your location within 45 minutes. We are familiar with systems that are brand new, and ones that are 100 years old.
Why is maintenance so important? It can extend the life of your heating system. All heating systems create dust and debris; if they aren’t regularly cleaned, this can accumulate on components and cause the unit to work less efficiently, or even fail.
It can help keep your budget reasonable. Inefficient heating systems need to do more work to keep your home properly heated, and that can get expensive.
It can also keep the people in your building safer. We can confirm that your boiler is properly installed, working well, and that there aren’t any leaks, or parts that look prone to leaking. By repairing small problems, you can avoid the sort of bigger problems that lead to explosions, fires, and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Installation of new systems: We work with professionals in new construction as well as homeowners and commercial property owners who are looking for a commercial heating engineer. When installing a system in new construction, it’s ideal to consult a commercial heating engineer in the planning process. That way, the heating engineer can offer any necessary suggestions to address space issues, areas where ductwork will be a problem, or other concerns.
When installing a new system in an existing building, we are often replacing a system that has broken or become outdated. Replacing an existing system can become tricky. We need to make sure that the new boiler or central heating element will have proper clearance in its new location, that the existing space will accommodate new ductwork if necessary, and that we can get everything installed safely.
Commercial Gas Safety Certificate
To legally rent property in the UK, landlords must have a Commercial Gas Safety Certificate. This document shows that certified, commercial heating engineers have reviewed all of the gas appliances in a home or building and found them to be safe and in proper repair.
As gas safe technicians in London and the M25 area, we are able to inspect your fixtures and appliances, ensure that they are safe or note any repairs that will be needed, and offer the certificate for your records. A copy is given both to you and to the tenant.
Commercial boiler Repair
Boilers serve crucial functions in most buildings. They are the heart of a central heating system and ensure that the climate in a building is properly controlled. If they are not properly maintained, however, they can become incredibly dangerous. Most often, a poorly maintained boiler will simply fail and require expensive repairs or replacement. But if boilers fail in certain ways, it is absolutely possible for them to explode. This can cause massive damage to a building, as well as causing injuries or even deaths for the building’s occupants.
Building owners and business owners are busy, and they may forget to schedule an annual checkup on the boiler to make sure it’s functioning properly. At UK Plumbers, instead of remembering to call every year, we recommend that our commercial customers set up a maintenance contract. We will then follow your boiler’s recommended service schedule to make sure that everything is working as it should be.
What do we look for during a boiler service?
To begin servicing your boiler, we will begin simply by looking over the equipment and the manual. We want to make sure that we understand the machinery we’re working with, and that we know all the details the manufacturer recommends that we check.
We check the machine case itself. We will wipe it down and make sure it’s free from dust and grime, then make sure it dries properly.
We make sure that if the boiler is located inside a cupboard or a small room that all the manufacturer’s recommended clearances are being met. If the boiler is too close to a wall or other piece of equipment, it could be a fire hazard, or it could keep the boiler from functioning properly.
We also ensure that any vents, grilles, and flues, are free from obstruction. These areas help your boiler’s temperature regulate, and it’s crucial that they be able to function properly.
Once these basic tasks are complete, we will:
- Check and correct gas pressure and flow
- Use a flue gas analyser to ensure that the boiler is burning the right mixture of gas and air
- Ensure that electrical connections are clean and in good working order
- Make sure fans and other key components are working properly
- Ensure seals are intact
- Check safety devices
- Check that the condensate pipe and trap are clear and working properly
- Confirm that water and gas pipework are in good repair.
These tasks are simple for the certified gas technicians at UK Plumbers, but the average business owner doesn’t have the time or tools to make sure that a boiler is truly functioning properly. Our annual inspections can also catch problems early, when they’re easier to fix, and before damages are caused.
Why else should you have your Commercial boiler service annually?
Annual maintenance can keep your boiler in good repair, but why else should you make sure that the machine is serviced each year?
- Legal compliance. Put simply, in order to be legally compliant, businesses are required to show the last time their boiler was serviced if an inspector asks. With a commercial maintenance contract with UK Plumbing, you won’t suddenly realise it’s been years; you’ll know that your boiler has been serviced on the proper schedule.
- Energy bills. When your boiler is in good repair, it will heat your building more efficiently and lower your heating bills. Most businesses can use every spare pound they can find; keeping the heating bill reasonable can be a big help.
- Less expensive repairs. Machinery needs repair work, and that’s a simple business cost. And any boiler will eventually need to be replaced. But if you have a good quality boiler that is keeping your heating bills at a reasonable level, paying for regular service and repair as necessary will help you maintain that quality.
- Insurance. For building or business insurance schemes, it may be necessary for your business to demonstrate that it is keeping the building up to repair, including the boiler. And if your business were to suffer damage from a boiler explosion, you might need to prove that you had been keeping up with service before insurance would make payments. Regular maintenance will help show that you’ve done your due diligence.
And, most importantly, properly maintained boilers save lives.
