Keep It Simple —

Having Detroit Thermal provide your heating and cooling needs leaves you free to focus on your core business.

Lower labor & capital costs.

Using our system eliminates the need to buy, install, operate and maintain your own, capital-intensive boilers and chillers.

Better reliability.

Our system includes 17 boilers in four separate steam generation facilities and redundant steam loops, to ensure reliable service 24/7/365. It is no wonder institutions like Detroit Medical Center depend on Detroit Thermal.

More environmentally friendly.

Detroit Thermal’s steam is produced with clean-burning natural gas, which helps lower your building’s, and Detroit’s, carbon footprint.

More space available for profitable uses.

Boilers take up a large amount of otherwise valuable space within a building. By using Detroit Thermal, you can put that space to work more profitably.

Greater simplicity.

Having Detroit Thermal meet your needs for heating and cooling leaves you free to concentrate on your core business. It also reduces the need to store chemicals and fuel on your site.
