Boilers that can cope with this kind of weather are no longer used just to provide hot water for St Olave’s School in York.

To avoid using two aging 800 kW boilers just to provide hot water out of the heating season, an historic school in York has installed two Lochinvar EcoShield condensing water heaters. Soon after their installation, Graham Fennell, estates manager for St Olave’s School said that it was already clear that the new arrangement would make a huge difference to the school’s running costs.

These water heaters provide hot water for showers and cookery classrooms.

Graham Fennell, explained, ‘The boilers are very old, I’d hate to say how old, and British Gas has done a great job keeping them running for us over the years, but they are not particularly efficient, and it was crazy having them running just to provide hot water.

‘Improving our energy efficiency was the most important thing for me, and we have definitely achieved that with the Lochinvar water heaters. Reliability is also a key consideration.

‘The installation went very smoothly and was overseen by British Gas.’
