The winning project, part of a major renovation of a stunning Grade I listed country house dating back to 1425, uses North’s ObSys-powered controllers to manage packaged biomass boilers and to control oil-fuelled boilers, pumps and valves. ObSys also provides a user interface on iPad which gives the client simple, colour-coded control of the plant, with settings for eco, comfort and holiday modes along with calendar and timer adjustment. ObSys integrates with the Control4 AV system, and allows the user to adjust temperatures via the Control4 keypads.
The new system provides zoned control which compensates for solar gain, heat retention, occupancy and ambient weather conditions. This highly sophisticated strategy is essential to ensure that the draw-down from the biomass storage tank is as efficient as possible, while maintaining a high level of comfort and fabric protection.
Previous energy bills were an eye-watering £70k per year, the new system has reduced this by around 75%. No wonder the client is over the moon.
Very few Custom-Install companies are able to provide such a complete solution, with Audio Visual systems, high quality energy management and full HVAC control, all as a single fully integrated package.
Congratulations to all involved on this well-deserved award!
