Vaillant worked with Hydro Heating Solutions to provide Maiden Erlegh School in Reading with a comprehensive heating solution.
The school required a system that would: replace the existing system, reduce ongoing maintenance and running costs, build in flexible backup should the overall heating system ever fail, and provide fully automatic remote operation for different areas of the school.
As well as those four key features the school requested the separation of the three main areas which had been fed from the main plant room and wanted individual plant rooms to serve the maths and science block, sixth form building and main school.
Vaillant was able to accommodate this request by providing a system that included 12 powerful, high performing and cost effective ecoTEC 120kW output wall-hung boilers.
The flexibility of the system also allowed them to meet the schools situational requirements. The solution provided will allow the school to allocate zoned areas within the building.
This means that should a problem arise with the system, normal heating operation can be maintained in the areas which are not affected. In addition, a new networked control panel was installed to provide full remote control of the heating system on-site.
Floor space within the main plant room has been maximised due to the compact design of the ecoTEC wall-hung boiler solution and this has provided additional space which the school is currently utilising for the development of a new gymnasium facility.
