When oil was stolen from rapidly growing printing company Bowden for the second time, they contacted Lime-Circle to replace their ceiling hung unit heater with something more cost-effective and less attractive to thieves.
Their unit – the kind of standard 6x6m found on business and industrial parks all over the country – has a heat loss requirement of 30-40kw. We decommissioned the oil tanks and heaters and installed a small biomass heating plant to the corner of the building. The boiler was coupled to four 8-10kw ceiling slung unit heaters in the main print room, two radiators in the welfare area and a small hot water cylinder.
More effective heat distribution
We created a far nicer working environment by installing four small unit heaters rather than one or two big ones, which are noisy and emit large, uncomfortable blows of localised hot air that leave some workers sweltering and others feeling the chill.
The boiler is filled with 10 kg bagged pellets 2-3 times a week and then left to do its thing – everything else is taken care of by the wireless, fully programmable thermostat.
Much more financial sense
Because both Lime-Circle and the kit we installed are certified by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, Bowden’s won’t just save £1,182 a year on fuel – they’ll also receive tax-free payments amounting to £4,070 a year under the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. All this, and no need to worry about thieves in the night – result!
