Broag displays the art of efficient heating
The efficiency of providing space heating for the Tate Gallery in St Ives has been much improved by the installation of Broag condensing boilers.
As part of the refurbishment of the Tate Gallery in St Ives, two Broag Quinta 115 wall-hung condensing boilers have replaced older boilers in a roof-top plant room. They each have an output of 114 kW and will heat the entire gallery. They were installed by County Heating of Bodmin, whose Brian Matthews particularly remarks on the improved flueing arrangements and higher efficiency compared to the older boilers. These boilers can achieve a gross efficiency of 99% with a flow of 40°C and a return of 30°C and have very low NOx emissions. The gallery occupies a spectacular site overlooking Porthmeor Beach. It is close to the home of Alfred Wallis and the studios used by many of the artists whose works are exhibited. It is designed to show works of art in the surroundings and atmosphere in which they were created.
