Train for the future

The government is investing £320 million in district heat networks. For some, this may be a new technology so it can in many cases be misunderstood and this lack of understanding means that some potentially efficient systems are delivering under par performance figures.

Curtain up on savings

With 2018 temperatures dipping to a stark -15oC and peaking at 35.5oC, building owners need to ensure they have sophisticated measures in place to manage the comfort of their employees, especially as there is currently no upper temperature limit for workers.

Marginal gains to bold leaps

In the world of commercial boilers, the traditional rules of engagement are well documented: Manufacture a highly efficient unit that meets the expectations of the market, remove the old product from the range and sing the virtues of the new model’s features. It has been a successful strategy for many years, with incremental improvements delivering major developments over a decade.
