Boilers can be one of the largest investments a hospital can make. Heating these large facilities and delivering hot water and steam for vital needs and used in a variety of processes, maintaining hospital boiler systems is pertinent to keeping them functioning to full capacity.
With proper maintenace, a well designed boiler system can last the lifetime of a facility. Because almost two thirds of the nation's commercial boilers are over 20 years old, it is important to check the functionality of these systems.
The main thing that hospitals need to do when talking about boiler maintenance is keep their equipment clean. One-eighth of an inch of dirt can decrease a boiler's efficiency by up to 8 percent. By properly cleaning the interior systems on a regular basis, this dirt accumulation can be minimized and the system can be kept as efficient as possible.
American Boiler and Mechanical can also design boiler rooms for new hospitals or service and repair boilers.
