Boiler room and boiler wiring

I am installing new wiring for my boiler/boiler room and wanted to know what is common. Here are some questions that I have...

I have 6 (115v, 0.65amp) circulator pumps, 1 boiler control, 1 boiler(of course) and 2 lights with a receptacle

1. how many circuits should I have and what should be connected together
2. should a have a small load center (maybe 2 breaker) in the boiler room

All comments are appreciated, thanks

Absolute minimum of two circuits. The boiler needs to be a dedicated circuit. I prefer the pumps to be on a separate circuit but most commonly they are also on the boiler circuit. Second circuit for the lights and receptacles but again, I like to have lights and receptacles on different circuits.

There's no apparent reason to install a subpanel in your boiler room. Is there a particular reason you were thinking of doing that?
