Commercial plumbing products are more connected than ever, offering remote monitoring and data collection that opens the door for predictive analytics. The newest commercial boilers demonstrate those advantages, with controls that provide information access via mobile apps and websites.
“People want to know immediately when something is going wrong with their boiler and what they can do to prepare to service it,” Raypak Commercial Product Manager Peachie Maher Hytowitz says. “We are providing notifications of issues or preventative maintenance needs, the location of the issue and possible solutions and information to aid in preparing to solve the issue, such as what parts may be needed. Maintenance personnel do not want to have to go down to a boiler room to troubleshoot the system, come back up, order parts, wait for parts to arrive, and then go back down to the boiler room. They want solutions that do not require multiple visits to the site to save their resources and time.”
