Everything You Need To Know About Boiler Rooms
Discussed by Total Boiler Services
Boiler rooms are also known as mechanical rooms or plant rooms and are dedicated rooms that house the equipment and systems needed to provide or supply property or business services such as electrical distribution, gas supply, ventilation, heating, and hot water.
Planning a boiler room meticulously is crucial to ensuring it is safe and cost-effective for your business. Insufficient planning and installation of the equipment and pipes will result in an inefficient system, posing serious health and safety risks to your business or commercial property.
Our design specialists at Total Boiler Services have years of experience and expertise when it comes to designing your plant room. They consider factors such as location, power sources, output requirements, business needs, efficiency, and health and safety.

We offer service and maintenance contracts for your boiler plant room, so you don’t have to worry about its maintenance, servicing and repairs, minimising business disruptions. When it comes to installation, servicing, and repairs, we work alongside you as a partner
We design commercial boiler rooms that make full use of every inch of space available and provide optimum energy performance without compromising safety.
Industrial boilers don’t always need to be installed in a boiler room. For optimum performance and efficiency, our experts will advise you on the type of boiler you need for your property and business. In a boiler plant room, certain types and sizes of boilers must be installed, and they must be designed and installed specifically for the boiler system, according to the manufacturer’s technical instructions, as defined by UK law, in order to ensure the boiler and boiler room are safe.
The design and installation of boiler rooms should always be done by an expert like Total Boiler Services. We have experience with industrial boilers and plant rooms for the design, installation and maintenance aspects and you can trust us to always do the right thing for you and your business.

It isn’t always necessary to have a boiler room as it is all dependent on your property and property size and needs. Every property is different meaning every boiler room is different. Some boiler rooms are extremely complex and supply heat and power for factories, large complexes or complicated machinery.
A boiler room or plant room is often the heart of a commercial operation, controlling electrical circuits and supplying power for everything from lighting to heating. Having a plant room ensures that an industrial or commercial property including factories, manufacturing operations, hospitals, large scale offices, leisure centres, hotels, shopping complexes, etc. can provide heat, cooling, and electricity to ensure that the building and its components are able to work effectively and safely. Many systems can be powered by a plant room, and the size will depend on the property and business.
Plant rooms don’t always just house boilers and they may contain other specialised equipment, however, this will depend entirely on the type of business. A boiler room has to be designed based on the size and needs of the property or business.
Total Boiler Services will visit your business or property and do an in-depth site assessment. By taking the time to learn about your operation and business needs, we can design and plan the best boiler plant room for you. When it comes to your systems, we use the latest technology and manufacturers with lengthy warranties.
