Vaillant restores golf-club heating to above-par performance

Vaillant

When the boiler system at Aston Wood Golf Club started to fail last autumn, reducing comfort in the restaurant, bar, members’ lounge and snooker room and also adding the risk of lukewarm or cold showers, two Vaillant wall-hung condensing boilers were installed.

The 18-hole course has had over £180 000 spent on its drainage in the last three years, so it was not the course that was underperforming but the heating system.

The problem with the heating system was first noticed by member Kenny Virdee, who is also Vaillant’s regional sales manager. He helped specify the two ecoTEC 65 kW boilers (illustrated) that were installed by Prolec UK.

Kenny Virdee comments, ‘Having been a member of the golf club for numerous years, I know that the management team has been working tirelessly to improve all areas of the course and its facilities. However, the heating system started to fail in the build-up to winter. As a member of the club, I felt it was in my best interest that the problem was rectified swiftly — and what better way to provide a solution than through my company’s own products.’

One benefit has been that more of the 850 members use the club facilities after a round of golf.
