Ideal boilers are star performers in top hotel
Saving space and delivering hot water more efficiently at a top London hotel is an installation of Ideal Super Plus boilers.
To reduce the cost of providing domestic hot water at The Stafford Hotel in St James’s Place, London, one of a very few 4 red star hotels in central London, two Ideal Super Plus boilers have replaced boiler plant that was over 20 years old. The new plant supplies hot water for the 81 luxurious rooms in the hotel, along with restaurant, bar and four private dining rooms. Graham Smith at AWA Building Consultants explains, ‘Driving up the energy efficiency of commercial buildings is vitally important to meet Government targets of reducing carbon emissions. With this in mind, changes to Part L2 of the Building Regulations and the introduction of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive have forced specifiers to look for advanced systems.’ Ideal Super Plus boilers are available with seven outputs from 200 to 600 kW. Heat exchangers are situated in a combined combustion chamber, creating semi-condensing conditions within each module to achieve 85% efficiency gross (94% net) at full- and part-load conditions. They can be assembled in vertical or horizontal configuration and require 30% less space than conventional boilers.
