The plumbers at Hungry Plumbers Inc, have extensive experience in boilers and boiler systems. We have worked on boilers from 100,000 btu's to boilers over 1 million for large multi family residential buildings over 100 suites. The image above was a boiler room for an apartment building. Shown is a domestic copper line joined using Victualic clamps, there were 3 hot water tanks run in parallel.
In most large buildings with parkades, the ramp entrance/exits tend to have a steep incline which poses a risk for ice slippage. It is necessary to run a snow melting system utilizing a small boiler sufficient enough to melt fresh snow as it drops on the ramp thus leaving a slip free surface. This system can be applied to home driveways for a shovel free winter, but the costs to run such a venture can be deterring. It is similar to in floor heating systems in your home but heating outdoor concrete instead.
In-floor heating designs have changed over the years. Typically in new construction, the oxygen barrier pex is installed on the floor and a self leveling gypcrete is poured over top. This way differs from a more labour intensive ceiling mount for the floor above approach.
