Why a wall-hung boiler could be the right option for your business

If you’re considering a new boiler for your business, a wall-hung (aka wall mounted) boiler might be the way to go. They have the benefit of being smaller than traditional boilers meaning they are easier to handle and can be installed side-by-side in a modular boiler arrangement.

A wall-hung boiler might look like a small hinged cupboard but it is a fully staffed boiler system, equipped with an expansion tank, safety valve, and a water circulation pump. It’s the perfect option for a small space in which there is no place for the installation of larger equipment.

Wall-hung boilers are also likely to cost less and don’t necessarily have to be mounted on an existing wall. In many cases where an existing wall wouldn’t support the weight of the boiler, steel floor standing frames can be used. This option comes with the advantage of factory built and tested pipe kits already in place.

There are various wall-hung boiler options available on the market but Vaillant has just announced the launch of its first high output boiler in over 10 years (available since May 1), which is being manufactured in the UK at Vaillant’s Belper headquarters. The ecoTEC 48kw and 64kw are described as lighter, smaller and more compact solutions than previous wall-hung models. Customers will also be able to reap the benefits of greater efficiencies, with the products being up to ErP A+ rated when installed alongside controls.

CH Systems is an approved installer for Vaillant heating equipment – if you’d like to find out more about wall hung boilers or if you have any energy queries relating to your home or business, contact the CH Systems team on 0208 302 8149 or info@chsystems.co.uk.

Sainsbury’s Ashford

Major supermarket chain Sainsbury’s commissioned CH Systems for a pipework installation to two air handling units in its Ashford branch. The project involved up-sizing the heating pipework to two of the roof mounted AHUs. The coils on the AHUs were replaced and the units themselves were overhauled at the same time that the pipework was being installed.

All the heating in this store is generated by air-source and ground source pumps.

All the pipework on this site was Geberit Mapress and because of the project location, we carried out all the crimping with a Novopress XL pressing tool, which is cordless and enabled us to carry out the installation timorously.

We’re really proud of how this project turned out. If you have any questions, please do contact us directly.
