Where are you with your heating system?
Perhaps this isn’t obvious but it’s a good time of year to think about whether your commercial or industrial heating system is up to scratch.
If your boiler is more than 20 years old, it may need replacement and in any event, it will benefit from regular servicing.
Tubman Heating can help you with both. For nearly 40 years we have been working with industry to maximise heating system effectiveness by installing new steam boilers, hot water boilers, and hot oil boilers. By replacing pipework and other associated equipment, repairing or replacing heat exchangers and changing fuels where a more energy-efficient and/or more eco-friendly option is available.
There is a variety of fuels used to fire boilers: natural gas, LPG, diesel, coal and other solid fuels (eg: wood pellets). The fuel decision is complex as it involves considerations such as proximity to supply, available space to store fuel, reducing emissions and health and safety around the boiler house. The government is keen to make sure that there are no coal boilers operating in NZ.
If you’d like a review of your heating assets, please get in touch before the end of February. This will allow time for any remedial action to occur before the “heating season” starts, usually during May.
In closing we’d like to wish you a very happy Christmas and offer our best wishes for a bright and successful 2020.

Boilers and burners are a central component of many commercial and industrial hot water heating systems.
Over time they get hammered by hot temperatures, high pressure systems, chemical imbalances, improper servicing and so on which cost businesses time and money.
So……is it time to upgrade your heating system?
Here are some issues to look at when reviewing your heating system:
- Does your system have constant leaks? They can happen any time! There are many causes for leaks, including worn gaskets, incorrectly tightened valves, sub-standard welding and so on. Leaks can be costly, affect health & safety, and create little or massive amounts of damage to your assets.
- Are your utilities bills on the rise? If you’re noticing higher than usual utility costs, your boiler could be to blame. It may not be operating at full capacity and requires repairs to get its performance back on track. As technology advances, new boilers are increasing in efficiency. Your boiler may be out-of-date enough to cause much higher energy costs than a new machine would incur, then a boiler upgrade could be a cost-effective choice.
- Are there loud banging noises? Boilers, burners and pipe work can be loud at times but shouldn’t be banging. Pipe work might not be stabilized, a blockage might occur, or pressure building up. These noises could be a sign of faulty equipment and should be considered for upgrading a replacement.
