Heating

Plumbing for hot water heating systems, such as with radiant hot water heating, is a speciality at Roland Bourbonnais Ltd. This type of heating system makes rooms more comfortable, as radiant floor heating radiates heat on the walls and furniture, making all objects warm and comfortable on contact. Another great advantage is the freedom it allows with regards to floor plans and furniture placement throughout your home. With your heating system hidden within your floors, there are no grills, ducts, air returns, baseboard heating units or traditional water radiators to clutter-up the room, limiting your choices when placing your furniture. This method also allows for a more uniform temperature between the floor and ceiling, as heat is radiated evenly in all directions. Hot water is pumped through specially designed tubing installed under or in the floor. Thermostatic valves can dynamically distribute heat, as needed, in separate areas of flooring.

Radiant hot water floor heating is said to be the heating of the future because it has the advantage be being able to be used in conjunction with other types of heating systems, separate or combined, such as electric, oil furnace, natural gas and solar or geothermic energy. Since the hot water tank contains significant amounts of stored energy, the production and use of this energy can be phased-in as part of a heating strategy, which has a highly beneficial effect on your home’s energy consumption during peak periods, which is of particular importance and value to you, with the advent of smart meters.

Roland Bourbonnais Ltd offers all types of services related to heating, such as installation ventilation and draining of hot/cold surplus water, as well as traditional heating systems by hot water and steam.

A radiant hot water floor heating system contains 4 chief components: the heat source, distribution conduits, thermostat controls and the actual pump for water circulation. Since water circulates constantly through the pipes, temperature is maintained at a constant level, offering unequalled comfort level compared to other types of heating available on the market.

Steam heating systems are used primarily in the commercial / institutional sector. This type of heating is used most notably in large cities, who use this type of energy to heat institutional establishments, such as schools, administrative offices or hospitals. The utility / mechanical room is generally equipped with the required controls and various required components to operate this type of heating system.

1. Utility room

2_440_01The Mechanical Room is an important room or space in the home or commercial building, dedicated to hosting the mechanical or electrical equipment related to home heating, among other things. The size of the utility room is generally proportional to the size of the building itself. The Mechanical Room generally includes the following: radiant hot water heating system, air exchanger, dehumidifier, central vac, water entry with pump, hot water heater and hot water reservoir, heated floor system, sump pump etc… Roland Bourbonnais Ltd offers installation and maintenance services for all of this equipment.

For over 40 years, Roland Bourbonnais Ltd has provided quality general plumbing services, that is to say, installation and service of plumbing. Plumbing of hot water heating systems is one of the key specialities developed over the decades, specifically, radiant hot water heating systems for residential and institutional buildings. This type of heating, under concrete or wooden flooring, offers an unparalleled level of comfort.

3_440_01Choice of location for the installation of valves, pumps and all connections is not to be taken lightly and must adhere to current construction standards. If standards and regulations are not respected to the letter, it is possible, if not likely that leaks will manifest themselves within the construction project. Water leaks are synonymous with water damage and can even adversely affect the structural integrity of the building. This is just one of the many reasons that it is critical to engage the services of a certified plumber who is aware of all building standards and codes, who also keeps up to date, all in the goal of sparing you the nightmare of having executed a significant renovation or construction project without the required proper knowledge and planning.
