What is a Boiler Room or a Boiler Plant Room?
A boiler room or a boiler plant room is a room that houses all of the boiler systems and pipework that are needed to heat and provide output to a building or business. It doesn’t always have to be a complex set up and often it can be a gas or electric boiler and pipework that is big enough to provide the heat and hot water for the specific property. Every property and business is different so every plant room is different. Some are extremely complex and supply heat and power for factories, large complexes or large and complicated machinery.
A boiler or plant room is often the heart of a commercial operation, controlling the electrical circuits and providing the power needed for lighting through to heating, hot water and machinery. A plant room ensures that an industrial or commercial property including factories, manufacturing operations, hospitals, large scale offices, leisure centres, hotels, shopping complexes etc can heat, cool and provide the required electricity to ensure the building and its components operate as they need to, efficiently and safely. A plant room can provide power for many different systems and will be different sizes depending on the property and the business.
