Heating Maintenance For Commercial Premises

The commercial and public sector space is perhaps one of the most crucial when it comes to keeping on top of heating maintenance. Fortunately, No1PHD are here to help you with just that. Give us a call today and book an appointment.

Putting things off is a very human thing to do. We should all be better at planning but we often aren’t. In the case of commercial and public sector organisations, however, there are often meticulously kept records on expenses, and quite a lot of forethought about the future of those expenses. That’s why businesses and public sector organisations know the benefits of keeping your heating properly maintained, rather than waiting for something to go wrong and having it repaired or replaced when that happens. No1PHD can take care of that maintenance for you.

What Constitutes “Commercial Heating”?

The simple answer is that any heating system that serves a commercial or public sector property should be classed as commercial. This could include hotels, retail outlets, offices, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, and many more. It is important to distinguish between commercial and non-commercial heating because governmental regulations and insurance-imposed standards are often more stringent than their private property counterparts. That being said, any heating system with a mean output of 70kW or greater will often be classed as commercial from a maintenance point of view, even if it is not subject to same regulation as a smaller boiler in a commercial property.

Why is Commercial Heating Maintenance so Important?

There are two main reasons that proper maintenance of your commercial heating is important. The first is cost. Regular servicing and maintenance of your heating system will always be considerably cheaper than waiting for your boiler to break down and having to replace it altogether. The other reason is responsibility. Commercial and public sector entities often have a number of people they are responsible for. Employees, customers, guests, patients, students. If your heating system breaks down you could be liable for any fallout (such as offices being too cold to work in). Also, maintenance can be arranged to suit your schedule, whereas an unexpected breakdown could happen at a very inconvenient time, and the repairs or replacement aren’t guaranteed to be quick.

What If Something Goes Wrong?

That being said, if you do run into unexpected commercial heating problems, No1PHD can get you back on your feet as fast as humanly possible with a full and varied array of commercial heating services. We understand that commercial heating problems have a much larger impact than residential ones. We’ll get our specialists onsite to diagnose and fix your issues as quickly as possible, causing the absolute minimum of disruption.


Fully Certified Professionals

As mentioned, the regulations on commercial heating systems are more stringent than on regular heating systems. There is also likely to be a greater standards requirement from insurance companies. The potential for public liability, should anything go wrong, is too great to be casual about such matters. At No1PHD, our technicians are fully qualified, certified, and trained to handle your commercial heating maintenance and repair problems to whatever standards are required in your specific situation.

Signs of a Commercial Heating Problem

Advising on commercial heating issues as a whole is tricky. Unlike your average home, where the heating will most likely be a standard boiler system, commercial heating can come in many different flavours. Boilers are still an option, of course, but oil burners are also commonplace, as well as air heaters. Some universal signs that your commercial heating system may be developing a fault include;

  • Diminished mean heat output.
  • Unusual noises from the heating system.
  • Odours.
  • Taking a longer than usual time to start up.
  • And, of course, not heating up at all.

For the most part, any of these symptoms should give you warning that a problem is developing in your heating system, whatever heating system that is. In cases of a boiler-based central heating system, leaks are also a symptom of an impending issue. If you spot any of these, or something not listed that is giving you cause for concern, contact No1PHD today.

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.
