Warmco Heating for Leisure - Theatres, Churches, Sports Halls, Soft Play Centres

Leisure / Sports Hall Heating Solution for Leeds Rebound Gymnastics Club, Leeds.

Winterwarm TR150 suspended gas unit heater

This Leeds based gymnastics company enquired through our website in January 2017 for a solution to heat their brick constructed unit measuring 27m x 32m x 10m with metal clad roof. They were interested in a new system of gas powered ceiling mounted blow heaters and needed to move quickly due to their busy schedule of gymnastics and trampolining sessions.

We produced a quotation for them the same day and followed this up with a survey within 24 hours. We recommended the installation of one Winterwarm/Warmco TR150 heater which we believed sufficient to heat the area to a room temperature of 13c when minus 1c outside. It would be sited on the centre of the front wall above the gas meter and suspended from the roof purlins, 4m from the floor. The customer requested that all the redundant pipework from the old heating system be removed and we agreed to do this as well as install 10 feet of new additional gas pipe work from the meter to the new heater.

Due to the height of the building, we also quoted to install four WCU60 Winterwarm destratification (heat recovery) fans with thermostat control. These would be fixed 1m from apex level, next to four main steels, one fan every 5.4m and would provide three air changes per hour.

The customer was more than happy with our solution and opted to go ahead. We installed the heaters and fans in under a week.

Leisure Heating Solution for Wardrobe Bar in Leeds.

Winterwarm XR10 suspended gas unit heaters

Warmco were commissioned to replace two older Powrmatic PGUH40 heaters in this regenerated warehouse bar in Leeds city centre, in January 2017. We chose the Winterwarm XR10, which is a compact, suspended, natural gas fired unit heater, suitable for the 2,000 sq.ft. bar area.

The existing Powrmatic (PGUH) 11kw heater in these premises were out of date and replacing parts was proving to be expensive for the customer. Warmco disconnected, capped off the gas supply and took down the existing heater and then relocated our Winterwarm XR into a more central location, to create a better heat distribution. One of the advantages of the XR10 is that, at full power the 13kw of this model can take the space to the desired temperature, then the unit can modulate its heat output down to 8kw to simply 'top up' the heat to maintain that temperature, (measured by the thermostatic control). This facility can offer fuel savings of up to 30% against a standard non-modulating heater. We were also able to fit a fan assisted, room sealed flue, which allows fresh air to be drawn into the burner from outside, for more efficient heat generation. The installation work was completed within two days, to create as little disruption to the customer and their trade, as was possible.

Leisure Heating Solution for Liverpool Trampolining Academy, Liverpool.

Winterwarm TR50 suspended gas unit heaters

In October 2016, Warmco were asked to heat this 10,000 sq ft older style gymnasium building in Liverpool. We approached this, using two Winterwarm, TR100, suspended, propane fired, warm air unit heaters.

We installed these Winterwarm TR100, suspended, warm air heaters to heat this large open area, in this 1970s building to replace the temporary heating that was in place already here. These heaters have a maximum heat output of 101kw, which can be used to get the space up to temperature. However, once this has been achieved, it has the capacity to modulate its heat output down to just 65kw. This modulation feature offers a typical fuel cost saving of up to 30% against standard non-modulating models of heater. We also recommended the installation of four WCU40 destratification (heat recovery) fans into this ten metre high building, to recirculate the heat that would otherwise gather at height. Again, this modification to the system, will typically save our customer 30%. The lack of natural gas on site meant that the customer opted to run their heaters on propane, stored in tanks outside the building, because of the lower set up costs involved. The project was completed within four days, and we worked early hours, to try to create minimal disruption to the classes and activities on offer at the gym.

Leisure Heating Solution for Adrenaline International Trampolining Centre - Liversedge, West Yorkshire

Winterwarm TR50 suspended gas unit heaters

Warmco were asked to install a bespoke heating system, comprising of five, Winterwarm, suspended, warm air space heaters into a 40,000 sq.ft. area which was being converted from a former factory space into a trampolining centre and children's play area. We completed this work in January 2016.

For this project, we heated the different zones of the building with different heaters. Firstly, we installed one of our smaller Winterwarm TR50, natural gas-fired, warm air space heaters into the cafe area. This model of heater can modulate its heat output from 50kw on full power (to get the space to temperature), down to 32kw (once the desired temperature is achieved, to top up the heat and keep the customers warm). One advantage of this is that it prevents the space from being over-heated, making customers feel uncomfortable, and importantly it saves gas and therefore money. Additionally, when working on low fire, (with the air supply fan working at a lower speed) noise levels are reduced; which is ideal in the cafe area.

We also installed three bigger Winterwarm TR100 heaters into the trampolining area and a TR80 into the children's play area, in order to achieve the desired temperatures. At full power the 101kw of each of the three TR100 models and the 76kw of the TR80 (give a cumulative power of 379kw) and can take the space to the desired temperature quickly. Then the units can modulate their heat output down (to 64 kw on each TR100 and 47kw on the TR80, so down to a total of 239kw), to simply 'top up' the heat, to maintain the desired temperature, (as measured by the DB8 thermostatic control). This facility can offer fuel savings of up to 30% against a standard market non-modulating heaters. The trampolining area at 7m high also required five heat recirculation (de-stratification) fans, to push down the warm air that accumulates at the higher levels. Due to a lack of space in the play area, the TR80 situated there, was hung vertically from the roof, to allow it to also act as a de-stratification fan, recirculating the heat. This project was completed over a two week period and Warmco worked alongside our customer to complete the installation around the installation of other equipment.

Leisure Heating Solution for Wigan and Ashton Gymnastics Club, Wigan

Winterwarm TR gas unit heaters

In December 2016, Warmco were asked to heat a modern gymnasium building in Wigan. We approached this using a Winterwarm TR100, suspended, natural gas fired, warm air heater.

We installed the Winterwarm TR100, suspended, warm air heater to heat this large open area, in this metal framed industrial style unit. This heater has a maximum heat output of 101kw, which can be used to get the spaces up to temperature. However, once this has been achieved, it has the capacity to modulate its heat output down to just 65kw. This modulation feature offers a typical fuel cost saving of up to 30% against standard non-modulating models of heater. We also recommended the installation of two WCU40 destratification (heat recovery) fans into this 7.5m building, to recirculate the heat that would otherwise gather at height. Again, this modification to the system, will typically save our customer 30%. The project was completed within two aiming to create minimal disruption to the classes.

Leisure Heating Solution for Swansea Gymnastics Centre - Fforest-Fach, Swansea

Winterwarm TR gas unit heaters

Warmco installed a bespoke heating system, comprising of four Winterwarm, suspended warm space air heaters into a 3,000 sq.ft. reception area, and a 14,000 sq.ft. gymnasium in Swansea. We completed this work in June 2015.

For this project, we installed one of our smaller Winterwarm TR28, natural gas fired, warm air space heaters into the reception area and café. This model of heater can modulate its heat output from 28kw on full power (to get the space to temperature), down to 18kw (once the desired temperature is achieved). One advantage of this is that it prevents the space from being over heated, saving gas and therefore money. Additionally, when working on low fire, (with the air supply fan working at a lower speed) noise levels are reduced; ideal in the reception area. We installed two bigger TR100 heaters and a TR60 into the gymnasium area, to heat this larger older building, (with its lower levels of insulation), in order to achieve the desired temperature. This space at eight metres tall also required five heat recirculation (de-stratification) fans, to push the warm air that accumulates at the higher levels, down. We were able to sit the heaters on wall brackets, high up within the building, to separate the heaters from the activity spaces. We also added a secondary gas meter onto the heating system, to enable our customer to accurately record their gas consumption. This project was completed over a two week period and Warmco worked alongside our customer to complete the installation around the opening times of the gym.

Leisure Heating Solution for Axis Trampolining Club, Bristol

Winterwarm TR50 suspended gas unit heaters

Warmco were commissioned to install a Winterwarm TR100 heater space heater into this former industrial unit, which was being converted into premises for this trampolining club in Bristol. We chose the natural gas fired, suspended, Winterwarm TR100 for this 10,000 sq. ft open space in March 2015.

The Winterwarm TR100 has the built in capacity to modulate from full power at 101kw, down to 65kw so unlike standard models it will automatically switch to low fire, once the space is up to temperature. This prevents the space from being over heated, saving gas and therefore money. The heater which was suggested, was to aim to fulfil the customer's specification of background heating; achieving a temperature of just 13°C, when it is -1 °C outside. As the trampolining club was already open in these premises when we undertook our installation, our two day schedule was carefully executed to create minimal disruption. It was timed to coincide with the upgrading of their gas meter, which was necessary to accommodate the higher volume of gas required to fuel this heater. In a building of 6m height like this one, the heat will accumulate at the apex, so the tenant also bought three WCU40 de-stratification fans, which will redistribute the hot air downwards, reducing the need for the heater to operate on full power.

Sports Hall Solution for Selby Bowling Club, Selby, North Yorkshire

Warmco were commissioned to install a heating system into this leisure facility in May 2014. We chose four Winterwarm TR50, suspended, warm air heaters for this 10,000sq.ft. bowling club.

Previously this space had been heated by three Ambirad warm air unit heaters, which had come to the end of their live span. We decided to replace these with four heaters to try to give better heat distribution, through the building. The customer specified their requirement for a quiet and efficient heating system; obviously one which would keep their members warm throughout their games. The Winterwarm TR heaters were perfect for this job as the three fan settings and thermostatic controls gives them the flexibility to warm up the space quickly on full fire, then switch down to low fire and the lowest fan speed, to 'top up' the heat in the space. Working on the lowest fan setting obviously reduces the noise level, to allow contemplation of the game, and having the burner on low fire also reduces fuel usage by up to 30%. The job was completed in just three days to minimise disruption to the customer.

Heating Solution for a Children's Play Centre: Safari Sam's, Woodlesford (nr Leeds)

Winterwarm TR50 suspended gas unit heaters

In September 2012, Warmco were asked to replace a faulty Reznor UDSA50 heater at this 3000 sq. ft. children's play centre in Woodlesford, near Leeds. We installed our Winterwarm TR50, gas fired, suspended warm air heater with a new safe and efficient, room sealed flue system, within one day to correspond with their weekly closure day.

Heating Solution for a Sports Hall: CDYST Community Trust Sports Hall, Sheffield

CDYST Trust

Over the Christmas to New Year period, Warmco installed a Winterwarm TR80, suspended, gas, warm air heater into this 3000 sq. ft. sports hall. Previously the space had been inefficiently heated by two, old, gas fired, radiant tube heaters, which were not providing heat coverage throughout the hall. The height of the building also necessitated the installation of a destratification fan, to push down the heat that would otherwise accumulate in the roof space.

Heating Solution for a Church Hall: St Stephens C of E Church Hall, Prenton, The Wirral

Winterwarm XR20 suspended gas unit heaters

Warmco installed two Winterwarm XR20 suspended gas heaters within a church hall for St Stephens C of E Church, Prenton, The Wirral. The heaters were ideal for project because they are very compact, only 575mm wide and 490mm high and 490mm deep, also the XR20 is very quiet, only 45 dB (A), essential in a church hall used for plays and sports activities.

Heating Solution for a Small Chapel: Cross Lane, Shelf near Bradford

Small Chapel at Cross Lane, Shelf

Two Winterwarm TR20 suspended gas heaters were installed within a small chapel at Cross Lane, Shelf near Bradford. The heaters provide a very quick warm up time within a building that is normally only ever used once a week. The TR20 has a modulating heat/air output, this enable the heating system to be very efficient and quiet, vital in a place of worship.

Heating Solution for Hotel Function Rooms: Leasowe Castle Hotel, Moreton on the Wirral

Warmco supplied and installed two XR30 suspended heaters for Leasowe Castle Hotel, Moreton on the Wirral. The heaters were installed within two large function rooms (ballroom and conference areas). The heaters were perfect for these areas due to the compact size of the heater, (only 575mm wide and 490mm high and 490mm deep) and as we had them sprayed white to match the decor they were very unobtrusive. Furthermore the XR30 is very quiet, only 45 dB (A).
