The Parish Church of St Anthony of Egypt in Newcastle was almost forced to close down due to its problematic heating system. The church kept it's doors closed for nearly two years whilst essential maintenance work was being completed, but now thanks to the Church Heating Specialists, St. Anthony's is warm and welcoming once again.
But it was no easy feat. Because the church heating system had been turned off for 2 year, it was in an extremely poor condition, the entire boiler system and control units needed to be completely replaced, along with dilapidated pipe work, radiators, and other fixtures.
This was a big task, and the church managed to raise funds through various activities with the local community.
Right on schedule, our specialist church heating engineers installed a brand new boiler along with a Potterton Compact Derwent floor standing heater, two new radiators, timer and thermostat controls, as well as ground insulation to prevent heat loss through the existing trench. All of this work was done in a week.
The church Reverend was so pleased with the work, he described the church as being 'warm and welcoming' once again.

Handcroft Chapel in South London had heard nothing but great things about the church heating specialist, and after doing plenty of research on our company, they decided to contact us regarding work that needed taking care of. And they're so glad they did.
We had completed a number of church heating projects in the London area, and our customers were more than happy to recommend our services to Handcroft Chapel. And it's a good job they did, as the church was in desperate need of repair, especially the boiler room which had become flooded. The church had also recently seen the addition of a building extension, so we certainly had a lot of work to do.
The team of engineers quickly went to work, firstly by digging out a new sump pit and pumping the excess water out. Then it was time to replace the old church boiler with brand new ones and plate to plate heat exchangers were installed to bring the system up to date with modern standards. Ventilation was increased to the boilers, which increases combustion and therefore the efficiency. The team discreetly installed small box line ventilation ducts under the flooring which went from the boilers to the outside.
After pressure testing, some weak points in the pipework were identified, replaced and re-pressurised. All of the work was completed in record time, and the project manager Eric Obui was so impressed with how efficient, professional and tidy our team were, that he has awarded us the annual maintenance contract.
