At my job recently, we had an issue with our heating system.
- The thing had broke down and the people in charge were wanting to get the entire heating unit replaced.
The choice they made was rather an unusual one. You would think for an office building like where I work, they would be investing in an industrial sized central heating and air conditioning system, also known as a commercial heating and cooling unit. However, they decided to go with a hot water boiler instead. Why they chose to go with a hot water boiler is beyond me. But, that is exactly what they selected. When I asked the people in charge about it, they said that the central office wanted to go with a hot water boiler because it was a lot cheaper than a commercial central heating and air conditioning system. Also, the fact that a hot water boiler had a longer lasting life to it. I had always thought central heating and air conditioning systems would last longer than a hot water boiler if you always had the proper heating and air conditioning tune ups and check ups done. But, I guess I was wrong. I have to say though, ever since they got the hot water boiler, it has been very nice and warm compared to the old central heating system. I may even consider getting a hot water boiler for my own home in the future, when my central heating and air conditioning system has seen its last days!
