What Is The Most Sustainable And Efficient Type Of Boiler?

With energy prices constantly rising, many business owners are looking for the most efficient ways to heat their premises. There are several different central heating and hot water systems available, so it is important to establish exactly what type of system is going to be best for you and your employees. To help you decide what is the most sustainable and efficient type of heating for you, the team at Murdock Heating have put together this guide.

Why is it important to choose the right heating system? 

Every industrial facility is different, so it is very important to choose a system which is efficient and provides the best performance. Every different boiler is designed to provide effective heating and hot water for different properties depending on their demands. Essentially, the boiler is the heart of your heating system so it is important to choose the right fuel variant. 

Factors such as the size, type and brand of system you decide on can all have an impact on how much energy you use and how your property and hot water is heated. You will also want to consider other factors such as energy efficiency and options for renewable energy use.

Electric boiler

The amount of space you have available within your property will be one of the factors which affects the type of boiler you choose. Therefore, if you have a small office which has no access to gas or oil, electric boilers are often a very viable option. 

They are light, small, compact and often completely silent, mostly because they do not rely on elements inside the boiler moving to generate heat. The fact that they are very compact, means that they can be installed in tight spaces. They also don’t need to be installed on an outside wall as there is no gas pipe.

Natural gas boiler

Natural gas is known as one of the cheapest fuels available for heating. As well as being typically less expensive than other boiler variants, natural gas heating is also known as being very reliable. 

Its convenience is often very appealing to many business owners and commercial establishments because as long as you’re connected to a gas line, you can count on availability. When in use, natural gas is completely odourless and produces very few emissions, not only helping out the environment but also cutting down on cleaning time.

Oil boiler

If you are situated within a rural region, it can be more difficult obtaining access to a gas line – which is where heating oil becomes an option. Oil boilers are just as efficient as gas and in some cases even more so. They are very energy efficient and save a lot of fuel by heating up water only on demand – providing a good return on every unit of energy.

Oil heating systems can also be combined with other technologies such as solar thermal heating and solid fuel stoves to reduce heating bills.
