Church asks for help on becoming more energy efficient
The reverend of a very old church in Calne is asking for help to replace the building’s broken-down heating system and also make it more energy-efficient in the process.
The Reverend Bob Kenway of St Mary’s in Calne has launched a £250,000 appeal for a new heating system and hopes to have the church warm by Christmas. The building on Church Street dates back to the 12th century and its heating system is 150 years old. For this reason, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that, after being temporarily fixed on a couple of occasions, it finally failed for good last January.
Up to 100 people attend the main Sunday service at St Mary’s. It is the only Grade I listed building in Calne and offers one of the largest enclosed public spaces.
HeatingSave has an extensive experience installing building energy management systems in a variety of locations, including older buildings and churches (read our case study of a successful HeatingSave installation at the Corstorphine St Ninian’s Parish Church in Glasgow).
When coupled with the HeatSave thermostatic radiator valves, HeatingSave can help churches save 20 to 30%+ on their energy bills.
The HeatSave TRVs are very easy to install and highly cost-effective, as they enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time.
Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.
