Boiler, or plant, rooms typically house essential mechanical equipment that provides heat for central heating in a building.
The base for such systems is usually hot water or steam. The boiler heats up the water, which reaches the end user via pipe systems. In a hot water system, pumps generate the flow. In a steam system, the inherent system pressure does the work. Once it has gone through the system, the cooled water (or condensed steam) returns to the boiler, which heats it up again.
For the heating system to work properly, the boiler’s burn efficiency needs monitoring, as well as the flue gas discharged into the atmosphere.
