After our engineers completed yet another church heating projects in the area, Cowdenbeath Church in Scotland got in contact with us to come up with a new heating design that would allow a new 4 zone heating system and new hot water outlets to 8 taps throughout the building.
The previous heating system was a mixture of small electrical heating panels on the wall and some old gas convected heaters which after years of use were starting to fail one by one. The plan was to split the heating system into the various areas as the church and hall was taking more and more bookings.
To accommodate for the increased use, 2 new wall hung Ideal Evo max boilers were installed along with all new pipe work and controls. The church wanted the main worship area to have a silent running system, so our church heating engineers installed high output radiators in this area – correctly sized to the wall space in accordance to the heat loss calculations. The kitchen, vestry and various entrance areas were converted to a natural convection radiator system. This provided an even heat throughout all the areas of the church.
The main hall area and church meeting rooms needed to incorporate a cool case unit so that children would not burn themselves on any radiators. These two areas are large in volume so our engineers devised a plan to install fan convected radiators which allowed for the areas to heat up quickly, while ensuring there was no issues with safety.
The entire new system was completed in 2 weeks using a total of 6 engineers to ensure the hall was available after the break to continue with bookings.
