Commercial & Municipal Water Tempering Valve Services in Lexington & Louisville

Commercial and municipal buildings use boilers for much of their hot water needs. Boilers only put water out at one temperature: boiling. Boiling water is more efficient, and keeping water at high temperatures prevents bacteria growth. However, this boiling water has to be brought down to tolerable levels for human use. 

Accidental scalding can be a hazard in any building but occurs more often in commercial and industrial settings. Due to this danger, many local and state plumbing codes require water tempering valves, also known as thermostatic mixing valves, to be installed to help regulate water temperature coming from the water heater. 

What Are Water Tempering Valves?

Water tempering valves offer a much more regulated solution to mixing in cold water. Their thermostat sensors quickly adjust the hot and cold water volumes to ensure the resulting mixture is safe for human use. 

The pipes leading up to the tempering valve are boiling hot and dangerous to touch. It is best to leave professionals to install or repair a water tempering valve rather than let maintenance staff attempt it.
