Commercial boiler Design and Installation at premier Surrey Golf Club

Tandridge Golf Club was designed by the renowned Harry Colt in 1924, and today is judged as one of the top 100 golf courses in the UK. Situated in a rural location near Oxted, in Surrey (UK), it has a thriving membership and is a beautiful course; the main club buildings date from 1928 and have been carefully retained to the present day (unfortunately the first clubhouse burnt down in 1927, exacerbated by the thatched roof). It is popular every day, with golfers seemingly happy to battle in all weathers at all times of the year, perhaps encouraged by the excellent dining […]

Complex house heating system of the future (in 1998) gets updated

For this case study, we are in Ealing, West London. Our customer rang us to say he had inadvertently bought a large house with a woefully complex heating system around 8 years ago.  The first time he viewed the house, it was perfect – but they never went into the garage.  On the second visit, he popped his head into the garage area, and found it completely full of commercial plant, and a ambient temperature of over 30C. Since then, many a central heating specialist has escaped having seen the garage;  apparently they are brimming with confidence until the door […]

Large old listed country house – 155Kw boiler system renewal

We’ve just replaced the boiler plant in a very large country residence in Sussex (July 2013). The old oil fired Worcester Bosch system heated the house, which was mainly comprised of 60 yr old radiators and large bore steel pipe, as an entire single entity without any zone control.  The oil bill (no mains gas here) was £12K per annum. Our customer looked at a number of options, but liked our approach best.  Our unique proposal was to improve the efficiency of the boiler room by using weather compensation and load sharing – reduce consumption of oil and increase comfort, […]

New model Vaillant in cellar replaces iron commercial

Today’s case study looks at an interesting house near Leatherhead, Surrey, UK. Outwardly, it looks like a chalet bungalow, but at the some point in the past, a massive cellar was excavated underneath with a swimming pool, games room and boiler room. This was some years ago and the present owner has no need for the swimming pool, which together with the associated boiler/plant room, was at the end of its economic life. The pool and house was heated by a large iron open flued commercial boiler with a pressure jet burner.  There was masses of wiring in the cellar […]

Oil boiler goes up chimney

OK. so we’ve covered a Worcester -Bosch gas boiler using an existing chimney, so here’s an oil boiler version.  Sticking with Worcester-Bosch, this one is a Camray Greenstar 18/25 Utility model. We’re in a remote area south of Dorking, Surrey, accessed via a long farm track. The property had a Trianco oiler, made around 16 years ago, with a leaking heat exchanger.  This is the end of the road for an oil boiler, because the heat exchanger is the whole metal frame of the boiler. Trianco have always been a budget boiler manufacturer, and have, as a company, seemingly lurched […]
