FAQ: How Many Boilers Do I Need?

Replacing your boiler system can be a complicated process. One of the most difficult questions to answer is deciding how many boilers will be necessary. With boilers being such a significant investment, choosing the wrong number can be quite costly. The best thing you can do to determine how many boilers you need is to consult with an expert who can guide you through the process. However, there are several factors to consider before you speak to an expert.

For starters, figure out how much space you have available to you. You can only fit so many boilers inside the space you have in your boiler room or steam plant. It’s important to note that modular water tube boilers tend to take up less space than conventional fire tube boilers. This could allow you to fit more boilers without sacrificing productivity. You may also want to start out with fewer boilers than you can fit, giving you the option of adding more boilers at a later date without needing to expand your boiler room.

You should also consider your steam needs. This includes both your average needs on a daily basis, as well as your maximum needs. Your first priority is making sure you have enough boilers to cover your basic needs. But you also have to keep in mind extreme scenarios when your needs may increase exponentially. This may force you to add an extra boiler or two onto your original estimate to make sure you have enough boilers to cover any fluctuating needs
