Coal boilers on their way out
Where are you with your heating system?
Perhaps this isn’t obvious but it’s a good time of year to think about whether your commercial or industrial heating system is up to scratch.
If your boiler is more than 20 years old, it may need replacement and in any event, it will benefit from regular servicing.
Tubman Heating can help you with both. For nearly 40 years we have been working with industry to maximise heating system effectiveness by installing new steam boilers, hot water boilers, and hot oil boilers. By replacing pipework and other associated equipment, repairing or replacing heat exchangers and changing fuels where a more energy-efficient and/or more eco-friendly option is available.
There is a variety of fuels used to fire boilers: natural gas, LPG, diesel, coal and other solid fuels (eg: wood pellets). The fuel decision is complex as it involves considerations such as proximity to supply, available space to store fuel, reducing emissions and health and safety around the boiler house. The government is keen to make sure that there are no coal boilers operating in NZ.
If you’d like a review of your heating assets, please get in touch before the end of February. This will allow time for any remedial action to occur before the “heating season” starts, usually during May.
In closing we’d like to wish you a very happy Christmas and offer our best wishes for a bright and successful 2020.
