The Liverpool Housing Trust has used Atlantic Boilers’ VF range of boilers to significantly reduce energy consumption at its Friendship House Building.
The Trust manages more than 40 retirement properties and retirement homes for older people. Friendship House houses 31 flats with resident staff support and contains lift, lounge, guest facilities, salon and garden. It is thoughtfully positioned within walking distance of the bus stop, shops and doctors.
The consulting engineers were REC of Liverpool and the installers were Kimpton Building Services of Birkenhead. The original boiler plant was replaced with two of the Atlantic VF 100kW all stainless steel pre-mix gas, low NOx condensing boilers and this was carried out with minimum interruption in heating services.
In the following 12 months, the energy consumption was reduced by more than 25%. Building management control was also added, increasing the energy savings to over 40%.
The VF range includes four models from 40kw to 100kw. Each is a pre-mix boiler modulating from 25 to 100%. NOx emissions are below 35mg/kWHr and it is available with a built-in boiler management system.
