For a charity, perhaps more so than any other organisation, getting maximum value and efficiency from mechanical services is crucial. The Harpur Trust provides vital accommodation and support to community projects in Bedford, so any money it saves on energy bills can make a difference to its work.
In summer 2016, the 361 Degrees team installed two new Buderus GB312 boilers at the Harpur Trust headquarters, after redesigning the heating system and removing an existing boiler.
The new design reflects the needs of the building by providing a better turndown ratio. In other words, the system now runs much more efficiently when demand is low, which has led to a significant drop in energy usage and costs.
361 Degrees now provides a tailored servicing contract, which not only helps prevent any future breakdowns, but also keeps the system running at a low cost.
