Specialist Heating Equipment For ChurchesLearn about the range of specialist heating equipment we use in the projects we undertake
A heating system for your kind of church
The range of church heating systems installed by Mellor and Mottram is as varied as the churches themselves. In some cases the project may involve just the replacement of a boiler utilising existing pipework that is in perfectly good order. In others the entire church heating system needs to be replaced. In some churches the heating system needs sophisticated controls to ensure energy-efficient operation.
The boiler is at the heart of the system
In most old churches and other ancient buildings, Mellor and Mottram will install traditional ‘wet’ heating systems. These are powered by one or more boilers, dependent on the size of the church and the type of boiler. Most boilers are powered by either gas or oil, although the renewable option is becoming more popular.
Where the heating system shows its face to the world
The ‘public face’, so to speak, of most church heating systems is the radiators. To a great extent an effort is made to hide or disguise them so as not to detract from the aesthetics of the church building – particularly in the case of ancient or grand Victorian churches.
Getting the circulation going
A common option for heating systems in modern churches is the installation of gas-fired fan convector heaters. That is because with modern churches there is the availability of exterior walls into which flues can be fitted.
