Chapel enjoys new heating

With overhead infra-red heaters in the chapel of Priory School in Lewes not performing effectively, the school approached Vulcana to discuss the possibility of installing powered-flue fan-assisted gas heaters. Vulcana had previously installed a Temcana 6C heater in the organ loft.

Four floor-standing Kestrel 55 were installed, each with an output of 16 kW. Combustion air is drawn from outside the chapel.

The work was completed by Vulcana in three days in mid-August. It included 43 m of gas run and wiring, and drilling new holes for flues.
