New Lennox warm air heater in Bromley

Warm air, or Hot Air heating, is where heated air is recirculated from the house, through a heating bank, and then back into the house again.  It uses a network of ducts, usually in a ‘tree and branch’ formation in a domestic property. The heat bank could be heated directly by Gas, LPG, Electricity or Oil (indeed, there are a few other options as well). Installed correctly, using the latest equipment, warm air has the ability to be arguably the most efficient way to heat a space.  This is because there is only one transfer of energy, from the original […]

Worcester-Bosch 1 Keston 0

For this case study, we find ourselves in Oxted, Surrey.  We like Oxted, because it is a lovely, virtually unspoilt town (if you exclude Morrisons) full of coffee shops and yummy mummies.  I suppose it is similar to Sevenoaks with all the good bits squeezed into a smaller area.  It is also very close to Hot Water & Central Heating Ltd HQ, so we get a lot of projects there. A larger house, this had a Keston C55 boiler and a significant number of radiators.  The Keston boiler had been unreliable (no surprises there) so we suggested a Worcester-Bosch alternative. […]

A new Worcester Danesmoor, MultiCalor Warm Air, Radiators, Water pressure boosting…..

Today we are in a rural property in the Edenbridge/Tonbridge area of Kent. Our customer has recently moved back to the UK from working abroad.  He has bought a detached house in the middle of the Kent countryside. The subject of an extensive makeover in the last 20 years, this property had a Lennox oil fired warm air unit in the cellar, a Worcester standard efficiency boiler in the external cupboard, and a conventional hot water system. The warm air system was around 20 years old, and covered the two reception rooms , kitchen and hall areas. It was very […]

Some Church installations 2016:

We have been very busy over the last year, converting a number of church campuses over to Honeywell Evohome zoning, as well as in many cases updating the boiler plant at the same time. Evohome was originally designed for domestic use, allowing a room by room control of heating.  We’ve found that sophisticated commercial heating control systems are great if you employ a dedicated plant room manager – but for many light commercial applications, it is simply too complex for those expected to control it. There are huge energy savings to be made by only heating the areas in use at certain […]

Norwegian Chalet, imported by the Marquess of Tankerville

We work on some interesting houses in our job, and this was one of them.  Hidden away in a rural location near Tunbridge Wells, in around 1906 this house was erected in the grounds of Greystoke House, home of the Earl of Tankerville. The house had first caught the attention of the Marquess of Tankerville whilst on holiday in Norway, so, naturally, it was disassembled and brought over to Great Britain.  She planned to use it to board visiting guests at Greystoke. The Marquess died in 1922, having handed over the property to the China Inland Missionary Commission in 1918.  It […]

Golf Club gets new boiler plant for showers

We are in Oxted, Surrey, UK at the picturesque Tandridge Golf Club. Having put in a new Worcester Bosch boiler system and Evohome at the home of one of the management team, they were sufficiently impressed to ask were we could have a look at a much larger commercial installation in the male and female showering block. We found that other contractors had previously been approached but some felt it was too big for them, others did not really grasp what the management team were looking for. The problem was that on match days, large numbers of golfers would descend […]

William Pitt the Younger’s house

The focus of our case study is a listed building in Westerham, Kent, which was once the residence of William Pitt the younger. Westerham is a small town steeped in history, and features Chartwell, home of Winston Churchill, Downe House, home to Charles Darwin, and Squerryes Court.  Chevening, the deputy prime minister’s estate, is just down the road. Featuring timbers that are believed to date back to the 13th century, in more recent times William Pitts’ former house has been an upmarket restaurant, and an Indian fine dining eaterie. The present owners purchased the property in a state of dilapidation, […]

Anne of Cleves’ house gets an upgrade

Readers of this blog will know that we regularly get commissions from owners of listed properties for their heating upgrades. Today, we are in a Grade 1 listed country house in Ditchling, Sussex, UK, dating back to the 16th century, or possibly earlier. Henry VIII was believed to have bought this house for Anne of Cleves;  later residents included William Pitt*. *William Pitt will also appear as a case study for our professional services shortly! In more recent times the house was owned by a radio and TV personality;  our customer has recently moved in and we were engaged to provide […]

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 […]

Anthracite boiler replaced Worcester Oil Boiler and Evohome

For today’s update we are in a remote part of Kent, not far from the famous Biggin Hill aerodrome. Our customer has lived for many years in this rural idyll, in a semi detached cottage. Up until now, he has used a Trianco boiler running on solid fuel, in this case anthracite.  The solid fuel boiler, located in the kitchen, is a relatively modern unit that greenies would now describe excitedly as a Biomass boiler.  It is relatively modern in so far as it has a fan assisted combustion system and the collection of ash is partially automated. Our customer […]
