Hot water boiler systems operate very much as their name suggests. To break things down into the most basic terms, hot water boiler heating systems rely on a central hot water boiler tank that is heated until the water is transmitted through an interconnected system of pipes, radiators, baseboards, and other heat exchanging mediums. The actual hot water boilers are workhorses: the vessels are typically constructed out of stainless steel, aluminum, or cast iron and are made to hold up to the very high temperatures and extreme pressures that they generate on a daily basis.
Hot water boiler systems generate hot water in one of two ways. The first way is through fire tubes, which means that heat exchanging tubes are immersed directly into the water to raise the water’s temperature. Water tube boilers work with a logic that is opposite of fire tube boilers. Water tube boilers operate using tubes that contain water, and the tubes are then heated from the outside. The water is then typically circulated using a pump water system or through baseboard heating that allows heat to escape via radiant heating, when heat is released from the pipes.
Why a Hot Water System Might Be Right for You
Hot water boiler heating systems can be very efficient, making them both a powerful commercial boiler choice and a cost-effective one. Fire tube boilers in particular can be extremely efficient and result in tremendous savings on fuel costs. When it comes to functionality and affordability, hot water systems are an extremely competitive option. Newer models of hot water boiler heating systems are being designed with space efficiency and ease of installation in mind, so you may have an upgraded hot water boiler installed in your facility faster than you ever thought possible. Hot water boiler heating systems stand up to demand without breaking the bank, which is perfect for the business that needs a high-yield boiler, but doesn’t want to pay a fortune in fuel and heating costs.
