RADIANT HEATING SYSTEMS

If you are looking for a way to lower your energy bills, radiant heating systems may be the way to go. With a radiant heating setup, you will have even, comfortable heat without even realizing it’s there. There are no clanking radiators, loud blowers or other signs that your heating system is in use. All you will ever experience is an invisible, quiet blanket of heat that keeps you and your team cozy throughout the entire winter.

A radiant floor system is an efficient way to heat your property. With this setup, your property is warmed using electric wires or hot-water tubes installed beneath your floors. Since heat rises, the thermal radiation from your radiant system rises from below and warms the area as well as any objects and surfaces the heat touches.

Radiant systems keep the air temperature relatively constant, and you stay more comfortable because the surfaces in your property are no longer cold and stealing heat from your body.

With a forced-air heating system, you may struggle to remain comfortable throughout the day. This type of system blows out hot air, which quickly rises to the ceiling before cooling and dropping back down. Conventional heating systems also cycle off and on frequently. Combined, these factors cause jarring ups and downs in temperatures, and people often find themselves struggling to stay warm.

Radiant heat solves those problems.

RADIANT HEAT INSTALLATION

At Piping Systems, Inc., we offer radiant heat installation throughout Massachusetts. If your are tired of being uncomfortable in your property during the winter months and paying way too much for your heating bills, this could be the perfect solution. Radiant heating systems require little to no maintenance, and they are extremely reliable.

HOW CHILLED WATER SYSTEMS WORK

Chilled water systems provide cooling in commercial and industrial applications. The way they work is similar to the way a direct expansion system works. The primary difference is that the coil in a chilled water system contains water as opposed to a refrigerant. These systems are extremely complex in nature, and they are not common in residential applications. At Piping Systems, Inc., we install the piping for different types of chilled water systems in commercial buildings and processing facilities.

Chilled water HVAC systems work by removing heat from water to then remove heat from a building. The water is circulated through a chilled water loop and coils that are located inside air handlers. Heat is absorbed by the chilled water, which is then returned to the chiller where the heat is removed again.

These systems often include a cooling tower that acts like the radiator in your car. The cooling tower stores water to keep it cool before the heat is circulated by the outside air.

Chilled water loop arrangements can be quite complex, and chillers range in size depending upon the application. These systems are ideal for commercial and industrial applications because they are highly efficient and reduce energy consumption and emissions while maintaining a comfortable environment.

AUTOMATED SPRINKLER INSPECTION PLAN

A fire protection system is a state requirement and mandatory by most business insurance companies.

But they’re only effective when they’re in working order from proper servicing and maintenance on a recurring schedule. Forgetting to schedule an inspection or having it fall through the cracks because of a staffing turnover is a risk that could lead to a catastrophic accident.

PSI offers a recurring Sprinkler Inspection Services. We take the inspection and maintenance of your fire protection system off your plate by handling the scheduling, testing, and servicing of the entire system quarterly, bi-annually or annually.

HERE’S WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH A SPRINKLER INSPECTION AGREEMENT:

  • Automated scheduling of fire protection system inspections (you choose the interval: quarterly, semi-annually, or annually).
  • 24/7 priority emergency service so you never have to scramble in a time-sensitive situation.
  • Confidence in your fire protection system, so you know your most valuable assets are always protected.
  • Locked-in pricing for up to 2 years.
  • Cancel at anytime; get charged only for the services rendered.

DRY PIPE FIRE PROTECTION SPRINKLER SYSTEMS

In our over 40 years of serving as a piping contractor in Massachusetts, our team of experts has designed, installed, and tested numerous dry pipe fire protection sprinkler systems in wide variety of industries. If the building that you’re looking to have a fire protection system installed in is not regulated by heat, then a dry pipe fire sprinkler system may be the solution for your fire protection system needs.

WHAT IS A DRY PIPE FIRE PROTECTION SPRINKLER SYSTEM?

A dry pipe fire protection system operates based on levels of pressurized gas rather than water (get cold and could freeze pipes). After all, the same principles for frozen pipes at your home apply to frozen pipes in a non-temperature regulated building. If your fire sprinkler system requires water to be stored in pipes located in a non-heated area, the water has a chance of freezing. Now, just because there is no water stored in the pipes of the system does not mean that water is not used to extinguish any fires.

At some point between the outside and inside of the building there is a valve – and that valve holds back the water – there is no water waiting in the system or pipes – when system pressure falls below certain amount valve opens and water rushes – only because system pressure is below a certain level – all that water has to be drained out of the system – you don’t want water.

There are a number of elements to keep in mind when considering a dry pipe fire protection system. Unless the facility where the system is being installed is not temperature regulated, then a wet pipe sprinkler system will most likely be recommended. Dry pipe sprinkler systems are more complex than it’s wet pipe counterpart. The installation and and maintenance costs also tend to be higher for a wet pipe fire sprinkler system.

For instance, in some older systems there may be ‘dips’ in the piping where naturally occurring condensation may accumulate. It is essential that before the cold weather sets in, that a competent technician drain all of the low points so that the water does not freeze inside the piping causing a breakage.

If you’re facility is not temperature regulated and temperatures can reach close to freezing, then a dry pipe fire sprinkler system may be the proper solution. The expert team here at Piping Systems Inc. has designed and managed the installation of numerous dry pipe fire protection sprinkler systems.

Having a working sprinkler system ensures that your property is protected from the kind of loss that can occur during a catastrophic fire.
