What classes as a commercial boiler?
A boiler becomes ‘commercial’ depending on its size and where it is installed. They often have a higher output, so will differ from a residential boiler installation. Boilers usually classed as commercial are:
- Rated above 70kw;
- Fitted with gas pipework with a diameter of 35mm or above;
- Installed in commercial or non-domestic buildings such as shops, offices and schools.
It is also possible to install a domestic sized boiler in a building that we’d class as commercial, such as an office or accommodation above a public house or restaurant.
Why should I have a new commercial boiler installed?
If you don’t already have a commercial boiler installed in your workplace, business premises or non-domestic building and you are considering having one installed then, the chances are, you need one.
There are a lot of legal requirements in relation to having a boiler installed in a commercial premises. This depends on differing factors, such as whether the building is owned or rented, private or council and what the necessity for having a boiler is. Either way, if you need a new boiler installed in your commercial property, Lacey Plumbing & Heating can help.
If you are replacing an old boiler, you will be benefiting from:
- A more reliable and modern product that can be well maintained years after its installation.
- Increased cost-effectiveness through installing a more energy efficient boiler with new ways of monitoring consumption.
- Improved conditions for building occupants, such as staff and visitors, through better heat distribution and more reliable hot water usage.
What type of commercial boiler do I need?
Commercial boilers are available from most of the major boiler brands, such as Worcester Bosch and Vaillant. Ideal Boilers also have a commercial section to their brand which are called Keston Boilers.
We can install all the same types of boilers that are available for residential properties such as combination, heat only and regular boilers. It depends on the type of property and requirements which we can advise on during a survey.

Planning a commercial boiler installation
If you are planning on having a commercial boiler installed, there are many factors which you may need to consider. These include:
- The location of your boiler.
- Whether a singular boiler, multiple boilers or a large scale heating system including radiators is required.
- The size of the building and whether it spans multiple floors.
- Whether we will be installing a brand new system or replacing an old boiler with existing infrastructure in place.
No matter what scale your commercial boiler installation may be, we can have our Gas Safe registered engineers ready to help you implement a safe and efficient heating system in your building.
A commercial boiler engineer will be fully trained, qualified and equipped to install, repair and maintain boilers and heating systems based in commercial buildings. They will be Gas Safe registered and will work for a reputable company with plenty of commercial heating experience, such as Lacey Plumbing & Heating.
They will have all the necessary equipment to ensure that the system is installed correctly, safely and follows all of the legal requirements and standards that apply to commercial heating.
If a boiler is maintained regularly and serviced by a professional engineer, it can last anywhere between 10-15 years. There are plenty of reasons why a boiler may need replacing before its 15 year life span, depending on its usage, any damages or a change in systems.
Commercial boilers tend to have a lower warranty period than residential boilers. We can advise you on the warranty depending on which boiler brand is suitable for your commercial space.
Again, this depends on the size of the system that is being installed and whether it is spaced over one or multiple floors. We can discuss the scale of your project and timeframes with you.
We are also based in Bury, meaning that we can attend local jobs easily and efficiently. We can help to professionally install commercial heating systems and boilers throughout Manchester and in surrounding areas such as Bolton.
