Colder weather can definitely cause a strain on hot water coils, leading to the need for a replacement. It can also reveal the need for a hot water booster coil. If you find yourself in need of a hot water booster coil, it's important to consider all the options available to you. Research the different types of booster coils and decide which one is best suited for your needs. Make sure you purchase a coil that is the correct size and has the proper connections for your system. With the right information, you can make an informed decision and find the best hot water booster coil for your needs.
Booster coils are a great way to increase the temperature of a space without using too much energy. They work by using hot water that is heated to a temperature between 140-200 degrees fahrenheit. This hot water then passes through the coils, which are typically 1 or 2 rows, and the increased water velocity helps to heat the air in the space. The name 'booster' comes from the coils ability to boost the heat in the environment, providing a high capacity of heat with limited water.
When shopping for a booster coil, It is important to select the proper size coil to ensure the air velocity across the coil is correct. You will then need to transition your duct work to make the casing size around the coil fit. Typically, this coil will have 1-1.5 inch of casing surrounding it on all four sides. The good news is, you do not have to make all these decisions alone.
