What is the purpose of the boiler room?

So, what happens in those communities that have to renovate their old boiler room and have to remove it from the second basement? What happens if the new boiler room cannot be located on a level equal to or higher than the semi-basement or first basement?

In these cases it is possible to opt for autonomous heat generation equipment (roof top), i.e. to move the heating production to the roof of the building and locate it inside the roof-top.

For all cases and powers, in roof-top installations Remica Servicios Energéticos uses wall-hung condensing boilers. In addition to reliability and safety, these boilers imply considerable energy and therefore economic savings.

Workers who use and maintain boilers know that they are potentially hazardous. Boilers are closed vessels with gas or electric burners that heat water or other liquids to generate steam. The steam is pressurized and superheated, and is used to generate electricity, for heating or other industrial purposes. Although boilers are normally equipped with a pressure relief valve, if the boiler cannot withstand the pressure, the energy contained in the steam is released instantaneously. This combination of exploding metal and superheated steam can be extremely dangerous.
