St. Luke's Church in Gloucestershire had received a poor service by another church heating company, which meant they didn't know the best way to move forward with the upgrading of their old church heating system. Luckily they called us, and we stepped in.
We provided a full heat loss calculation, which meant the church knew exactly what areas they were losing heat, and more importantly, losing money. With these areas identified it made everything a whole lot easier. So armed with the facts, the warden and reverend were able to make a truly informed decision. Their main concern was that the entire heating system would have to be replaced, but this wasn't the case.
Our specialist engineers were able to upgrade the existing church heating system by just replacing key components, this not only saved on a lot of time, but also reduced the cost of the installation significantly. The other parts that remained were checked and serviced, as well as having a complete power flush.
The church now enjoys a modern, efficient and warm heating system, it is multi-zoned, and environmentally friendly. For pictures and to read the full story of the church heating upgrade, click here.
St Michael and All Angels Church in Tatenhill, Burton upon Trent is facing closure, but it's not going down without a fight, despite services beginning to wind down already.
The main problem is the dwindling congregation numbers, which has sparked major concert from Bishop of Stafford, Reverend Geoff Annas, and The Venerable Matthew Parker, Archdeacon of Stoke who have made numerous visits, and issued a warning last year. They have concluded that not enough has been done since the warning to attract more worshippers.
Reverend Andrew Ridley who is in charge of the village church, blames the lack of church heating for the low numbers, which is a major consideration for visitors, especially in winter, when the church can become unbearably cold. These freezing conditions often mean that during the winter months, worshippers travel elsewhere, and unfortunately they don't come back when the weather improves.
The reverend is currently in talks with the council, and is doing everything he can to prevent the imminent closure, and applying for a church heating grant should be a top priority. We work with local councils and authorities in helping churches to secure grants for their church heating systems, so if you need any assistance please call us now on 0161 211 6955 and one of our heating experts will be happy to help.
