Gas leaks are no laughing matter in any situation, but in a commercial building, the seriousness of the situation increases tenfold. Not only do you have the risk of someone being injured, but you also have the added responsibilities that come with public liability. Of course, problems with your commercial gas or boilers aren’t limited to life-threatening gas leaks. Boiler malfunctions are also a problem that many commercial properties face. No1PHD can put any problems, no matter how small, right. Just give us a call and we’ll get one of our experts out to deal with your problem.
From a regulatory standpoint, any boiler (or other heating systems) with a mean heat output exceeding 70kW is classed as a commercial system. However, in practical terms, any boiler that serves a commercial or public sector building, even a small one, is considered commercial. This can include schools, hospitals, office buildings, hotels, and more. It can also range from a small boiler heating the water in the break room, to a high capacity boiler heating all the radiators on a whole floor. This is important as commercial insurance (particularly liability insurance) may require different standards to be properly covered. When the liability is greater, requirements on safety tend to be greater also. No1PHD will ensure your boiler meets any required standards and regulations.
When a boiler begins to malfunction, or even stop working altogether, it can be a serious problem. If that boiler is responsible for heating the water and/or radiators for dozens of people, it’s an even bigger problem. The key to repairing a commercial boiler is proper diagnosis. No1PHD gas and boiler experts will be able to accurately diagnose a fault and repair or replace the necessary components, saving you time, money, and stress, all in one go.
Of course, boilers can’t always be repaired. Sometimes the fault is too severe to simply replace a component. Sometimes the boiler is too old to justify the cost of repairing it over replacing it. Increasing the capacity of a system (such as adding more radiators) can also lead to the need to replace a boiler that might have previously been up to the task but no longer is. Whatever the reason, our experts can help you choose the right boiler for your property, install it in adherence to all the necessary regulations and standards, and have your system up and running in no time.
The gas used in gas boilers and ovens is not poisonous, though you can still asphyxiate from lack of breathable air if you breathe too much of it. Though naturally odourless, it is intentionally scented to ensure any leaks will be noticed. It is, however, combustible. Should a gas leak be detected, great care should be taken to ensure the area is evacuated and experts are called immediately. Carbon Monoxide is another risk and one that can’t be detected with the average nose. You should ensure that carbon monoxide detectors are fitted in your property for this reason. No1PHD offer an emergency 24 hour heating service if things do go wrong outside of normal working hours.
Above all, the safety of you, your staff, and your customers/guests is paramount. If you have even the slightest suspicion that there may be a problem with your gas or boiler, don’t leave it to chance. Better to have one of our experts come out and tell you everything is fine than leave it alone and find out everything isn’t. At the very least, you get the peace of mind in knowing that there’s nothing to worry about.
It’s just not worth the risk of not taking gas seriously. No1PHD are trained, qualified, and certified to ensure that your gas and boiler systems will work the way they should; safely. If you’re having an issue, or even if you just want one of our gas and boiler experts to check your system over, give us a call today on 08006906777 or email us at, firstname.lastname@example.org
After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
