Active Heating® Services Ltd are proud to work in partnership with the Church of the Ascension, Burghclere. Together with their team of engineers, owners and Directors of Active Heating, Alan and Debbie Carter, install, repair and maintain heating systems and water systems for domestic and commercial customers.
Established for over 20 years, Active Heating are your small and local, big and capable heating company. With a loyal, dedicated and experienced team, Active Heating deliver outstanding service to every customer, no matter the scale of the project.
Initially commissioned to service the old oil boiler in the Church basement, the team at Active Heating found there was a split in the burner. Quick to ensure the safety of all, Active Heating replaced the boiler and tall flue liner. Engineers assessing systems at the Church also introduced better water conditioning and management.
Every job is likely to have its challenges, particularly when working in an old and precious building. Active Heating are careful to ensure the maintenance of every building they work in, to find cost-effective solutions to problems and always provide their customers with added value where possible.
This was no different at Burghclere Church of the Ascension. Getting the boiler down into the basement and the old one out was overcome with a risk assessed mechanical lift and brace method. The 10m flue was obstructed and, after cleaning, it was still a careful and slow process to take the old flue out and drop down the new.
The fabric of the building is hundreds of years old and Active Heating are mindful of its protection and the careful consideration of appropriate fixings.
Key deliverables include:
- Annual servicing of the oil boiler
- Install of oil boiler and tall flue liner
- Considerable upgrade of electrics to meet regulations
- Replacement of pressurisation unit
- Introduction of 2 strong magnetic filters for long term care of the system water
- Introduction of isolation valves for less expensive future working
