Whether you manage a hotel based in London or a housing association with the best interests of hundreds of residents at the forefront of your everyday work, it is likely you have a huge infrastructure to manage. We’ve put together an infrastructure and commercial boiler maintenance checklist and tips guide to help manage this process.

Know Your Infrastructure

Although this might seem like a simple step, it’s pivotal to ensure you are familiar with the inner workings of your boilers and infrastructure. This will allow you to identify any potential threats or changes in trends, as well as communicate clearly with a temporary boiler hire company about what you need to remedy a situation before loss of heating or hot water occurs, causing ongoing discomfort for employees, guests or residents.

Carry Out Regular Checks

As well as commercial boiler maintenance, carry out regular checks on the performance of boilers. A dip in performance could be a sign that something is amiss and further inspection is required.

Getting insight from a consumer point of view could also provide valuable insight; were they pleased with heating levels and water temperature?

Be Prepared for Change

Unpredictable weather and non-maintained boilers are not a great mix, but cold snaps – even on a well maintained system – can unearth some unwanted problems.

Being prepared for these snaps, ensuring commercial boilers run at a reasonable temperature and insulating systems can help avoid this, as can managing the boiler room efficiently.

Plan in Advance

From time to time boiler rooms and infrastructure in even the most prestigious locations will need a complete overhaul and have new boiler systems installed; plan in advance for this eventuality by arranging temporary boiler hire at the earliest possible stage.

By doing so, the cost of hiring a boiler and maintaining it whilst a boiler room is out of service will be factored into spending at the beginning and overall costs won’t receive an unexpected hit mid-project.

Always Have a Plan B

Life is hectic, so if your boiler breaks down residents, employees and tenants are unlikely to be understanding as they wait for the problem to be solved. In the long term this could result in a loss of custom and reputation.

Preparing for temporary boiler hire from a specialist company before you actually need it will mean everything is already in place if a problem occurs.
