The refurbishment of the home of Scottish writer and poet Sir Walter Scott includes boilers and water-heating equipment from Lochinvar.

As part of a multi-million restoration programme, Lochinvar high-efficiency condensing boilers and water heaters have been installed at Abbotsford, the home of famed Scottish writer and poet Sir Walter Scott, to provide space heating and hot water for visitors. The house, near Melrose in the Scottish Borders was designed and developed by Scott himself in the 19th century. He wrote some of his most famous works at the house, which is undergoing much needed repair before re-opening to the public in 2013.

Among Scott’s works is the epic poem ‘Marmion’, which, coincidentally, tells the story of ‘young Lochinvar’.

Ben Laing, mechanical project engineer with Harley Haddow, said, ‘A key requirement was energy efficiency, and Lochinvar’s wall-hung gas-fired CP-M+ condensing boilers were ideal for meeting the constraints of the existing plant-room conditions. Critically, the low flue-gas temperature of the CP-M+ meant we could extend the boiler flues to make use of the existing chimneys and so avoid any unsightly external elements.

An ECOknight water heater has been installed in the new visitor centre.
