Industrial/Commercial Boilers and Burners

Properly maintained boilers last a long time. However, no equipment lasts forever without regular maintenance and parts replacement. Moreover, a larger capacity or more energy-efficient boiler may be required, and you’ll need a proven professional installer for a new or replacement unit. General Mechanical offers boiler installation, repair, and maintenance for the commercial and industrial applications for manufacturing, food processing, hotels, medical facilities, and more.

Since 1973, General Mechanical has been helping industrial and commercial businesses throughout Northern Illinois with all their heating needs, including providing comprehensive boiler and burner services. We offer replacement, repair, and maintenance on steam and hot water boilers designed to minimize downtime and benefit your bottom line.

Industrial & Commercial Boiler Replacement

Boiler replacement can result from retiring an older boiler that needs extensive repair and must be replaced. Alternatively, your capacity needs might have grown beyond the capability of the existing equipment, and a higher capacity model is warranted. In some cases, older boilers become very energy inefficient, and a replacement makes economic sense.

General Mechanical represents the top brands of boilers in the industry, Some of these are Cleaver-Brooks, Bryan, Peerless, Weil-McLain, and Burnham. Whether gas-fired, oil-fired, or a combination, these boilers fulfill a range of different functions and capacity requirements. General Mechanical experts can help you to precisely assess which equipment will best fit your needs to provide a long-term practical solution.

We offer design-build services for replacement boilers in industrial and commercial buildings throughout the Chicago area. We install two types of boiler systems: hot water boilers and steam boilers. Boiler replacement service is available for units of all makes and models, including top-name brands like:

  • Cleaver Brooks
  • Bryan
  • Peerless
  • Weil McLain
  • Burnham

Our boiler replacement clients often include manufacturing facilities, food distribution plants, hotels, medical facilities, and many other commercial and industrial buildings in Chicagoland.

Industrial and commercial boiler inspections are recommended in late summer and fall, before Chicago’s cold weather season starts, as well as midway through the season to ensure peak performance all winter long.

General Mechanical, servicing the Chicago area, can help to create an industrial maintenance program that will allow your boiler system to work longer and more efficiently. The modest cost of regular maintenance is far less than the expense of emergency repairs or an unexpected replacement situation.

Industrial & Commercial Boiler Repair

Eventually, repairs may be necessary. General Mechanical technicians have extensive training in boiler function and repair. Since your boiler is an integral part of your production facility, immediate repair or replacement is essential to maintain continuity of output. Moreover, boiler equipment can begin to lose efficiency. Contact General Mechanical service experts to test the equipment output and energy usage. With proper parts replacement and fine-tuning, a General Mechanical service expert can re-adjust the boiler to save energy and extend the life of the equipment.

If your industrial or commercial boiler breaks down or stops operating as effectively or efficiently, we can help you get it back in working order in no time.
