Ocean Hill Boiler Services
Dealing with the boiler inside a large office building, hospital or school can be tricky for the building management and maintenance teams. This means that the boiler must be watched over regularly to make sure that it is always working. A quality boiler can keep the people in a building warm and comfortable without overheating the space, but a boiler that is damaged or malfunctioning can become a problem that will leave the building sweltering and the management scrambling to figure out how to fix it. A licensed and professional HVAC technician can handle all of these jobs and more when the building staff notice that there is an issue.
What is a Boiler?
Boilers are large reservoirs of hot water that are converted into heat energy. This energy is then pushed through the ventilation system of the building in order to heat every space. While boilers may seem like archaic pieces of technology, they can effectively heat a large facility much faster than a traditional heating and air system.
Does My Boiler Need Maintenance?
The boiler in the building does need maintenance from time to time. While there are many reasons why the boiler could need maintenance, it is necessary for the building manager or maintenance crew to know what is going on with the boiler. When the boiler is heating the building evenly and not overheating or underheating, the boiler is likely working properly. If the boiler ever fails to heat the building, it could be cracked or leaking. When it is overheating, that means that the heating element is malfunctioning and must be serviced.
A repair team should called any time that the boiler is hissing, leaking, cracking or not heating the building properly. In fact, having the boiler serviced every few months will make it much easier for the boiler to operate because a professional HVAC crew can spot problems before they become a big problem.
What Size Boiler Do I Need?
Boilers come in many sizes just like the buildings that they heat. A large building needs a larger boiler than a small building. Plus, a small building cannot have a boiler that is too large or the building would never be heated to comfortable level. This is why a licensed HVAC technician should be asked to measure the square footage of the building and show the building management what kind of boiler they need. With this recommendation, the building can be heated well all year long.
