BDR Thermea is the European market leader for commercial boilers, which can be adapted to the individual needs and requirements of each market.
Throughout Europe, the most popular way to provide central heating and hot water for all types of commercial buildings, such as schools, hotels, offices, hospitals and even large apartment blocks, is by using a boiler specially designed for commercial situations. Commercial boilers can be run on natural gas, liquid petroleum gas or oil. Increasingly, they are being combined with low carbon technologies, such as solar panels and heat pumps.
As well as providing the heating, a boiler can be used to provide the building's hot water requirements.
Types of commercial boilers
- Traditionally, floor standing boilers are used. However, for smaller commercial buildings, space saving wall hung boilers may be suitable
- It is very common to use more than one boiler in multiple or cascade format in a plant room. This system means that the increased heating and hot water needs of a large building can be met, and it is also capable of providing a standby facility
- As well as providing the heating, a boiler can be used to provide the building's hot water requirements using an indirect hot water storage tank or calorifier, a device that heats the water by circulating it over heating coils. Alternatively where hot water demand is high, for example a hotel, a separate direct water heater system may be used and the boilers used for heating only
- Commercial boilers can be either conventional or condensing
