Plant Room Refurbishment | The Beeches

The requirement:

The Beeches, a farm house in Long Sutton, required a complete plant room refurbishment to upgrade the heating and hot water system. The customer wanted to improve the reliability of his boiler, which was well over 30 years old and only around 70% efficient. The boiler was also fitted to an un-lagged, copper cylinder and oil was supplied from a single skinned steel tank – this made the system non-compliant with OFTEC. Following a recommendation the customer approached GlenFarrow and we worked with them to develop a system that would meet their heating and hot water needs.


Our solution:

After a site assessment our GlenFarrow heating team developed a plant refurbishment solution to dramatically increase boiler reliability and efficiency. A Grant oil boiler was supplied and installed – this delivers around 90-902.7% efficiency and came with a 5 year warranty. The boiler is also fitted with a Riello burner which has advanced technology to reduce emissions.

To complete the system our team supplied and installed a new 300 litre Telford Tempest cylinder and a 2,500 litre fuel tank with a new concrete base. Our engineers are NICEIC approved so GlenFarrow was also able to upgrade the wiring and fir a new electrical programmer. This meant we were able to deliver a full turn-key service.


What the client said:

“I was recommended to use GlenFarrow after previously being let down by another company. I am extremely happy with the job GlenFarrow completed. My heating and hot water system has never been so efficient and quiet. After the successful experience I had with the engineers, I would highly recommend GlenFarrow for heating and electrical works.”
