Electric Heating Case Study

Grade II Listed St Cynfarch and St Mary Church

We were contacted by St Cynfarch and St Mary Church regarding updating the heating within the church. Owner David Lukeman visited vicar Martin King at the church to discuss their requirements and what would be needed to heat the church. As this was a considerable project for the church we arranged a visit to a previous customer with a similar space so that they could see the heaters in action. Installation in the church was very swift taking just two days ensuring minimum disruption to the church.

It seems that the members were very happy with the results. The church’s vicar, Martin King wrote and said:

“It was great to be able to have the heating in time for the funeral yesterday of a prominent member of the church, who supported me in getting the new heating through the committees.  The family were very appreciative of the effort made to have everything running properly and programming the system”

He went on to say:

“The Lord Lieutenant of Denbighshire was in church for the funeral and quite comfortable without a coat!”

The advanced design of the electric heaters ensures maximum heat distribution, with no cold spots and with a range of different sizes, they are ideal for heating both large and small spaces.

The 10 heaters were installed with the added benefit of a unique and high tech SmartApp which has been cleverly designed to automatically monitor room temperature. The heaters can switch themselves on and off so that energy is only consumed when it is needed, making them cost-friendly. The SmartApp is easy to use and means that the church heating can be switched on from a smartphone or tablet.

Commenting from the letter received, Martin advised; “The real test will come next Sunday, as this week we had the heating on all weekend to warm the fabric of the church, which has been unheated for over a month”

Our German-engineered ELKAtherm electric radiators are available in over 200 colours, however, members chose a traditional, classic white that allows the heaters to blend in with the inside of the church, which dates back to the 15th Century and having listed building consent since 1966.

The modern, slim-line design of our radiators is perfect for warming up many different spaces, not just churches, including commercial premises such as offices, schools, leisure centres, warehouses, restaurants, bars and hotels. ELKAtherm electric heating is a modular system so heaters can be stand-alone to cover a cold spot or you can have a number of heaters and build an electric heating system.

ELKAtherm electric radiators are supplied and installed with a 25-year guarantee as standard for fireclay stones with moulded-in heating elements and a 4-year guarantee for all other electric components.  They require no servicing or maintenance which makes them an ideal replacement for existing outdated night storage heaters, or as an alternative to gas or LPG.
