The life expectancy of a boiler depends very much upon the type of boiler in question but, on average, a traditional gas boiler should last between 10 and 15 years. When it comes to the end if its serviceable life, it’ll need to be replaced – as was the case when we were called to check out some issues a client (global internet retailer) was having with their current heating system at a warehouse in Croydon.
The team at CH Systems discovered that the older gas fired Reznor units had fulfilled their life expectancy and a decision was made to replace the current units with 6no new Reznor UDSA-100 units.
With the roof of the warehouse being 13 meters off the slab, the work had to be carried out on Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) – this was no problem as all of our engineers hold current IPAF Certified Training For Working Height certificates, which enabled us to carry out the work in a much more timely fashion (saving the time and effort of scaffold towers etc).
