For optimal worker efficiency and customer happiness, a consistent heating solution is imperative to keep people comfortable in commercial buildings. Studies have shown cold employees are not only uncomfortable but are also distracted. When people are cold, their bodies expend energy keeping on warm instead of concentrating on their work. Drops in performance can cost employers 10% per hour per employee. For warehouses and factories, it can be extremely expensive to maintain a stable temperature- especially if using an inefficient heating system such as forced-air furnaces.
Furnaces, while continuing to be a popular heating choice, are an inefficient solution when it comes to heating. Air doesn’t retain heat, meaning that energy loss is rampant. Forced air heating can cause allergy and asthma issues, dry air quality, and distractions caused by often loud, moving air. Consistent heat can also be an issue as warmth tends to be spotty according to where vents have been placed.
In contrast, boilers are known for their heating efficiency. Hot water retains heat even after a boiler system has been turned off, allowing for more equipment downtime and a more consistent temperature throughout the building. Because there is no air circulating from the appliance, air filter replacement and allergens aren’t a concern. Boilers are also quieter than furnaces, causing fewer disturbances in a quiet commercial environment.
Our stainless steel condensing boilers can run with up to 99.8% efficiency in optimal conditions. By increasing the efficiency of your current heating system, you can see savings of hundreds to thousands of dollars annually. For smaller-scale commercial buildings, our HC Series units are an ideal solution. Larger buildings and requirements may require larger boilers, such as our NX Series units (up to 3,000,000 BTU/hr) or our GMI Series units (up to 12,000,000 BTU/hr). For temporary commercial operations, we also offer mobile boiler units created to any requested size as well as boiler rentals and leases.
