Replacement boilers cut school heating costs

Remeha Quinta Pro boilers contributed to a £3000 reduction in gas consumption in just four months at Sandbach School in Cheshire, despite having a greater heat output to meet its present-day requirements. Founded in 1677, it is now a free school with over 1300 students. The new boiler installation comprises six 115 kW boilers in cascade configuration.

When over half the existing boilers in the two plant rooms failed, action was needed to increase the reliability and output of the heating to meet current and future demand. Both plant rooms were refurbished over the school summer holidays.

Jonathan Scott, director at TBR 24-7 Ltd recommended installing four boilers in cascade operation in the plant room serving the main buildings housing the boys’ school and two more boilers, also in cascade, in the second plant room serving the maths, English and science block. TBR 24-7 is responsible for the on-going maintenance of the services at the school, as well as improving engineering services.

The company also rewired both plant rooms — adding new pumps, new controls and a full BMS control panel to enable 24/7 monitoring of the site.
