Members of the management team from St Mary’s Church in Tadley, Hampshire came to us recently for help with their heating. They now have ten Economiser Electric Radiators installed throughout the church. The congregation are warm, and the building is free from the damp which was damaging the church organ.
The church had always been cold. It was built in 1959 to a modern design, and with it came an electric under floor heating system, which had since stopped working. This was supplemented by a number of over-head heaters, but the nave, adjoining vestry, and prayer rooms remained chilly and damp. When the church management discovered that the cold and damp was beginning to damage the organ, they decided to take action, and upgrade the electric heating.
“The chosen electric heating system needed to be responsive, programmable, and effective.”
During the initial site survey we noted the high heat-loss factors. As with most large buildings of this age, there is little in the way of insulation, and the windows are just single-glazed. The high ceilings and solid block construction compounded the problem. The intermittent occupancy meant that the chosen electric heating system needed to be responsive, programmable, and effective. The Economiser Radiator range was the obvious solution, as it’s design distributes radiant, and naturally convected heat.
Aside from the obvious benefits of having a warm and comfortable congregation, the other important factor was that the radiators needed to look right. A classic, unobtrusive appearance was key. We left a trial radiator at the church so that members of the congregation could give their opinions on the suitability of the system. The feedback was very positive. The trial radiator fitted in perfectly, and the wireless programmable control meant that no unsightly wiring was needed.
The ease of installation and affordable price, as well as the versatile control system, classic looks, and 30-year warranty were the key factors that the church took into account when they chose the Economiser Electric Radiator System. As an efficient and controllable alternative to gas, or oil-fired heating systems, Economiser Radiators are an electric heating solution that can be used for almost any application.
