The New Maldon United Reformed Church in London required a complete church heating renovation, so they called on the experts to get the job done.
Having struggled with a failing heating system for far too long, the church pastor decided that now was the right time to get our team in to asses the situation, and put a proposal together. After a thorough site survey and heating loss calculations, a proposal of work was compiled, and once approved, the work began.
First of all the floor channel had to be exposed in order to access the pipe work and electricals, this looked dramatic, but once the flooring was replaced it looked as good as new.
Much of the fabric of the old heating system was made up of Victorian cast iron, which had become rotten, and was losing heat on a huge scale. Modern materials were brought in to replace to pipe work and other components, and a brand new, state-of-the art wall hung condensing boiler was installed and hooked up to the pipes and control unit.
Additional modern features such as a fabric protection control system, and zonal heating controls were installed, and really finished off the project.

St Johns Church in Glossop underwent a major heating system renovation, including new boiler installation and excavation work.
Such to the extent was this church heating system installation that our engineers had to dig up parts of the grounds, but the grass is now greener in more ways than one.
A proposal for a new heating system installation had been compiled by another company, but they were not happy with it, and so came to us for a second opinion. It turned out that the original proposal needed to be scrapped, and our engineers started from scratch, putting together a more concise and complete statement of works, as well has heat loss reports and a site survey. This new proposal was approved by the Diocese, and work began straight away.
Everything from the radiators to the flue had to be ripped out, along with all the bits in-between. Most of the major components of the heating system were too far gone to salvage, but as much as possible was re-used in order to save the church money.
As well as the usual boiler, radiator and piping replacement, it was also necessary to install a new mains gas feed, which involved digging up parts of the grounds. Our workers were very conscious as to preserve as much as the grass and flowers as possible, as to not have too much of an impact of the aesthetics of the surrounding grounds.

Not all of our jobs are large scale full heating system replacement projects, so when St Martin's Church in Oldham, Greater Manchester, came to us with their small issue, we were more than happy to help. The church approached us because the heating had stopped working, and couldn't identify the problem.
The church already had a nice under floor heating system, and all of the ancillaries and components were in good condition, and after our technicians initial inspection, it was clear that the wall hung boilers had reached the end of their life. We swiftly replaced the twin wall hung boilers for more modern, economic and energy efficient units. We also installed a new heating control unit which allowed wireless control, as well as a full system power flush to ensure all the piping was clear and free from blockage.
The work was completed in just two days, and caused minimal disruption to the morning mother and baby group that used the church hall in the mornings.
No matter how big or small, our expert church heating engineers are trained to handle any size job. To read the full article and see pictures of the work click here.
