A boiler replacement project carried out last year by C&F Quadrant and Geoff Castles Boiler Services Ltd is continuing to make a difference for a Belfast care home by delivering annual savings of 20% on its heating bills.
Geoff Castles Boiler Services was asked to carry out an energy audit at the Nazareth House Care Village based at Ravenhill Road in Belfast. Like most care homes, the 70-person capacity care home accommodation facility set within its own spacious grounds has its heating on 24/7. However, as part of the energy audit, Geoff Castles Boilers Services was asked to put forward ideas on how to cut the spiralling fuel costs.
The company called in long-time partners C&F Quadrant and the final result has been an outstanding 20% saving.
“This project again proves how investing in a new heating system can actually save money,” explained Michael Crymble from Geoff Castles Boiler Services. “We are delighted at the final results and that our energy audit has made such a significant difference.”
Michael Clarke, Technical Manager at C&F Quadrant, added, “We have a superb relationship with Geoff Castles Boiler Services and worked closely with them to find the right solution for Nazareth House Care Village. It is great to see the savings that have been created, particularly given the high level of demand on the system.”
The former system at Nazareth House was a cascade system consisting of 12 108kW atmospheric boilers. This was replaced with just two Unical Modulex 660kW gas condensing boilers from C&F Quadrant, with Geoff Castles Boiler Services carrying out the installation without a break in service to the care home.
While the initial feedback was that the changeover had generated savings, the final results have been more than impressive.
Michael Clarke added, “Our energy team has continued to monitor the system and we have been impressed by the savings it has generated. We would encourage companies to have an energy audit carried out. As this project proves, it can make a significant difference.”
The two Unical Modulex boilers – each 660kW with both casings including six multi-burners – are fuelled by natural gas and provide full modulation between 22kW to 1,320kW.
This project continues C&F Quadrant’s successful partnership with Unical and perfectly balances a quality product range with industry-leading experience.
C&F Quadrant is Unical’s sole distributor in Ireland, with the company distributing the leading Italian manufacturer’s well established range of commercial boilers in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Unical’s range has already been proven across Europe, USA and America in some of the harshest environments, including Siberia.
