The Heat Challenge

One of the Government’s grand challenge missions is to improve the energy efficiency of UK buildings. Regardless of age or condition, all UK buildings need to operate more sustainably to meet the stringent 80% emissions reduction target by 2050.

As a large user of energy in a building, heating has been identified as a natural target for improvement. But 60% of the buildings that will stand in 2050 are already built – and these older buildings will require very different heating solutions to efficiently-designed new properties. So let us start with the low-hanging fruit.

Boilers are a core component of the plant room, whether the sole provider of heat or working alongside low carbon technologies. In buildings that still rely on wasteful, ineffective non-condensing boilers for heat, a boiler replacement is one of the most practical, cost-effective solutions to increased efficiency. Upgrading to high-efficiency gas condensing boilers and adding controls can, in our experience, reduce gas consumption by as much as half, with an associated fall in costs and emissions.

At the same time, the increased reliability and control contributes to greater comfort levels leading to improved occupant productivity.

University reduces gas use by 50%

Aberystwyth University has been gradually replacing all the ageing boiler plant across its estate with Remeha boiler products over the last decade – with excellent results.

The University recently reported a 50% reduction in gas consumption and costs at its Penglais student accommodation buildings after replacing old boilers with Remeha’s wall hung Quinta Pro 65 models. By standardising the equipment, the University can anticipate further future savings from easier operation, maintenance and servicing.

“We recommend Remeha heating products for their quality and reliability,” said contractor Aber Heating’s Sion Jenkins. “The boilers have been designed for improved ease of installation, which helped us to meet the challenging schedule on this project. And importantly, spare parts and ease of servicing have also been addressed for long-term operational savings. The Quintas are lovely to work on – you can not fault them.”

£35K annual gas savings for Council

South Ayrshire Council achieved outstanding annual gas savings of £35K after replacing dated cast iron sectional boilers with high-efficiency Remeha Gas 310/610 Eco Pro condensing boilers at its County Buildings headquarters. This equates to an impressive carbon emissions reduction of around 217 tonnes per annum.

Why choose Remeha? Familiarity with Remeha boilers combined with ease of maintenance and the quality of training and service support provided were influencing factors leading to the specification.

The design of the fully-assembled, lightweight, compact Remeha boilers played a critical part in the success of the project, as the boilers needed to be craned over the top of the building and through skylights into the basement plant room.

Once inside the plant room, the integral castors on the new Remeha boilers enabled them to be positioned quickly and easily.

35% primary energy savings

Installing lower carbon technologies in a hybrid system should also be an option, where appropriate.

Penrith Leisure Centre has achieved a total primary energy reduction of 35% since retrofitting a Remeha R-Gen 20/44 kWe CHP unit alongside high efficiency Remeha condensing boilers. Accurate sizing of the CHP unit was critical to maximise the energy and carbon saving benefits. Remeha’s CHP team worked closely with contractor Thomas Armstrong throughout the project.

“The Remeha team are extremely knowledgeable about CHP technology and have provided valuable advice and support at every stage,” said Thomas Armstrong’s Stephen Clarkson.

Implementing a Remeha CHP service plan has ensured continuous operation and optimum performance from the start, for maximum end user benefit and installer peace of mind. Heating is under the spotlight for improvement measures.

We at Remeha look forward to supporting mechanical engineers with our range of advanced heating products, backed by expert product and technical support, to achieve the most appropriate heating solutions in every building.
