The project for the Main School at Casterton was the replacement of existing oil boilers for energy efficient gas boilers and a complete refurbishment of the heating & hot water systems.
The requirements were :
- To provide an initial assessment of energy costs and analyse existing energy consumption
- Re-design current Oil fired heating system and replace with high efficiency gas boilers and plant for instantaneous Hot Water.
During 2010 Casterton School contracted Wheildons to bring the main school boilers up to date and change the oil to gas to make the site more efficient and cheaper to run.
To do this, Wheildons started off at the beginning of the year analysing running costs and volume of output we would need and if this would also bring down carbon output to make the school more environmentally friendly.
Work started once everything was in place, with the changing of five of the schools main boiler systems to new gas installations, which also meant that we could lose the five large hot water storage tanks which also helps to limit any risks with watersafe monitoring.
Over the past year we have brought running costs down by 30% which is a huge saving on the school and this is all down to the efficient boilers installed by Wheildons. The way that Wheildons worked with the school throughout this process was impeccable on all aspects and we look forward to working with them now and in the future.
