Many commercial buildings today rely on roof-mounted packaged units for their heating. These are standard forced-air systems that operate the same way as split system heat pumps, except that all the components are stored in a single cabinet. However, your business may rely on a commercial boiler, which is an excellent way to provide central heating that’s not only powerful but also doesn’t blow around any dust or other pollutants. Commercial boilers remain a serious competitor with commercial heat pumps and furnaces.
But you need to be cautious when it comes to a commercial boiler, because it’s easy to get complacent about one. Boilers have a reputation for their low maintenance needs—but it’s simple to confuse “low maintenance” with “never needs maintenance” or maybe “only needs maintenance every couple of years.”
