SMARTech energy have been working closely with Dorothy House Hospice Care in Wiltshire to help reduce their overall energy consumption through a reduction in both electrical demand and total gas usage. Several electrical reduction solutions have already been implemented reducing total application consumption by 37%, these included:
- LED Lighting
- Voltage Optimisation
- SMART Refrigeration (Chilled Unit Energy Savers)
- 42% energy savings on new boiler system
Energy Efficient Boiler System
With the temperatures dropping as we enter the winter months, the focus for many is drawn to the heating bills. Fortunately for Dorothy House action has been taken to significantly reduce the total gas consumption at the site. The solution designed by SMARTech energy includes an energy efficient boiler system, with a flue recovery system, and thermal insulation jackets. The system has been designed to reduce total application energy consumption by a staggering 42%.
Commercial boilers are usually about 85% efficient. Boiler systems provided by SMARTech energy are typically 97% efficient and provide 10% of ‘free heat’ from the total energy output.
The recovered heat at Dorothy House was channelled into their underfloor heating providing them with a free source of heat from the boiler.
SMARTech Energy also installed thermal insulation jackets around pipes to prevent further loss of heat energy from the system. Not having appropriate insulation can account for a 10% loss in heat from your system, costing more money and creating an inefficient heat system.
If, like Dorothy House, you would like to improve your boiler system to avoid extra costs over the winter months, why not contact us to find out more. As a Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier, we can help most business access a 30% capital grant (up to a limit of £10,000) towards the cost of energy saving projects.
