A low pressure hot water boiler heating system is ideal for buildings that require heating in numerous areas such as offices. The system usually comprises of a boiler (Hot water generator), which is linked by a network of heating pipes to heat emitters such as radiators. Each radiator is normally fitted with a thermostatic radiator valve, which will control the temperature of the room in which it is fitted. This type of heating system can be zoned to allow individual areas to be heated whilst other areas are turned off to give energy savings.
Modern heating boilers can be floor mounted, wall mounted or suspended on manufacturer’s rigs. Rig mounting is normally used when numerous boilers are piped in series to give a lead lag system or when a large operating output is required.
