Your office is in all likelihood centrally heated. Whilst most are operating well their energy economy could be improved with a few small-scale changes to the offices heating system controls. Firstly, a time switch or heating system programmer enables you to set central heating and hot water to switch on only at periods when required. In this way you only use gas and pay for it when you want it.
Energy usage is reduced by fitting room thermostat to more delicately control the universal heat level in the office. Large cuts in gas intake can be achieved by limiting gas use to the level necessary to hit the target room warmth level. Fine control over room temperatures can be accomplished by adding heat level valves to every radiator.
The main source of gas inefficiency in all likelihood comes from an aging heating fire tube boilers. After fifteen years your heating boiler has seen its better days. The energy efficiency ratings of new central heating boilers shows that they are more economical. Condensing central heating boilers will use up to 40percent less gas. The heat exchanger contained in these gas boilers pulls heat from the exhaust gases and uses it to heat cold water. You may also be lucky and qualify for a award to fit one of these new central heating boilers.
Petite offices should study combination heating fire tube boilers
tiny offices can benefit from putting in a combination gas boiler as they need much less room than conventional heating boilers. A combination gas boiler and balanced flue contain all the elements you need to put in a full central heating system. Include radiators and copper piping and you are then able to warm your officehold. You could be astonished by this and ask whether we had left out some pieces. Central heating systems seem to require a hot water tank to store water, a feed and expansion tank in the loft and a water pump to move everything around.
These components are not needed by a modern-day combination heating boiler. You will have no need for a hot water storage cylinder, you do not want a feed and enlargement cylinder up in the loft, the other petite component parts we have brought up are in reality built into the combination boiler. Adopting this system means you can save a significant amount of storage space.
Do not think that all this is new as combi boilers have been fitted for a while now. Whilst they were first installed in Australia they are now a very popular heating boiler for fitting in the United Kingdom. There are two major deviations between this form of heating boiler and its better known alternatives. The first is that hot water circulates around a sealed system when heating the central heating. The benefit of this is that there is no requirement to fit a feed and expansion cylinder in the attic. Extra storage space is saved by the heating boiler integrating its own hot water storage vessel removing the requirement for the hot water storage tank.
Domestic hot water is developed on demand, the heating boiler is aware of this when you turn on a hot water valve. Cold water is rapidly heated up by the use of an economical heat exchanger. Water from the sealed central heating circuit is heated and is diverted to the hot water heat exchanger heating it up. On the other side of the heat exchanger cold mains water is heated before finishing its journey to the hot water valve.
Hot water output is prioritised ahead of the passing of hot water to the radiators. The radiators are furnished with hot water once the valve is shut.
As a consequence you should give serious thought to putting in a combination gas boiler for your next replacement heating boiler
