Boiler Hire

When it comes to heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), one of the most important pieces there involves the boiler. Heat is carried very well by both water and steam. So using the boiler is a great, environmentally friendly way to get the heating going.

At 100 degrees centigrade or 212 degrees Fahrenheit, water will be brought to a boil at atmospheric pressure. A pressure cooker challenges that supposed ceiling with its elements. When a rather airtight seal is applied through the boiling system getting pressure, that boiling point goes up. 

What to Expect When Renting an Industrial Boiler

The pressure industrial boilers could take would likely lead a pressure cooker to just burst. That’s a fire hazard and a general risk factor to whoever ends up using it. Boilers in the industrial sense are generally made when thick steel plates are welded together, allowing for a high heat situation with intensive pressure.

It would be easy enough to assume that renting a boiler online is a lot like shopping for other things on the web. Primarily, people now shop across several locations locally and abroad as e-commerce becomes immensely popular. However, finding boiler prices and comparing them on the internet is a rather hefty task. 

Take the following into consideration as you explore the possibility of renting out a boiler:

The Equipment

Needless to say, exactly what boiler you should rent relies heavily on what would fit operations best. Both the steam capacity requirement and the process you undertake as a whole should be considered. A firetube boiler is generally cheaper to run than a watertube boiler (generally for larger capacity needs). When extra requirements arise involving added equipment, then there will be extra costs as a result.

Additional equipment can include:

  • Deaerating boiler feedwater system
  • SCR system for reduced emissions
  • Water softener

Needless to say, the ability to connect to auxiliaries that are already in existence will make things incredibly cost-efficient. 

The Installation

In this stage, a third-party supplier and the end user will generally coordinate. It goes without saying that end costs for installation will depend on the project’s size. Some people go ahead and just take on a mobile boiler room; it’s the nearest thing in boilers to what is known as “plug-and-play.” 

The Water Treatment

There should be absolutely no ignoring the treatment of water that’s found in a rental boiler. When it’s not done right, equipment repairs will have to be done. Those costs can and will add up very quickly. A good rule of thumb is to find a water treatment supplier and hire their services. That simple step costs much less than the fixing or repairing of rental damaged boiler equipment.


Boilers are a great part of the HVAC system as they’re an environmentally friendly way of heating a home or other spaces. When renting an industrial boiler, you have to consider a few things. This includes installation, equipment and water treatment. Now that you know the basics of renting an industrial boiler, the next step would be to look for a reliable boiler hire service in your area.
