The refurbishment of St Nicholas’ Church in Blundellsands, Merseyside, includes seven Smith’s Caspian UV fan convectors to transform the heating system. They heat a large hall, a small hall and the reception area. Heating for each area can be controlled separately, which was not possible before

Colin Wakefield of contractor Wakefield & Wilson selected the Caspian heaters — specifying four units for the large hall, two for the small hall and one for the reception area.

The church was founded in September 1874 and is part of the Diocese of Liverpool.

Colin Wakefield said, ‘Having worked with Smith’s previously, I knew the Caspian UV fan convectors would be the perfect solution for this church.’

Compared to a conventional panel radiator, the fan convector provides a more-even temperature spread and much faster warmth. Forced convection also makes it far more responsive to thermostatic controls.
