Calor makes history at Pentillie Castle
Calor has brought an historic castle into the 21st century with the installation of a renewable-energy system and LPG to fuel hot water and heating. Pentillie Castle in Cornwall has undergone a complete renovation to transform it into a wedding and private-hire venue. Murch & Baker was appointed to upgrade the castle’s heating and hot-water systems.
Murch & Baker specified Calor LPG to meet the needs of the castle’s heating and catering facilities, since many chefs prefer the controllability and performance of a gas range.
Murch & Baker also specified a solar solution, with panels on the roof, to meet a proportion of the hot-water and heating requirement.
Another solar panel was specified to support the LPG system to heat the outdoor swimming pool.
LPG is stored in three 2000 l tanks.
As a leading LPG supplier to rural homes and businesses, Calor works alongside leading manufacturers to ensure that LPG is compatible with low-carbon and renewable technologies.
