Customer Brief:

We were asked to offer a heating solution which would heat this large area in the most energy efficient way possible.

Features of the Heating System:  

In this large 280m x 60m building we quoted to supply and install twelve Powrmatic VPX140 heaters. These tall cabinet heaters, were equally spaced along the length of the building, with one heater approximately every 20 metres. We also hung 44 CECX Calecon 6500, de-stratification fans, throughout the building to re-distribute any heat gathering in the upper reaches. This fan can has the capacity to recirculate 11,040m3/hr of air back down into the factory. I this building with an average height of 14.5 metres, this heat recovery system, could typically save our customer up to 30% on their fuel running costs.

The heater installed by Warmco is absolutely brilliant! It has surpassed our expectations… it is very efficient on gas consumption and overall working with Warmco will save us a lot of money in future. All in all we are over the moon with our heating system and would be very happy to recommend Warmco’s services to anyone.

Russ Moore – A S Plant, Mansfield October 2020

Warmco were very quick to respond to our request for a survey and to quote for our heating; much faster than the response time that I have generally come to expect form other companies. The engineers communicated well and worked round our site requirements, to create minimal disruption to ourselves and our customers. We are pleased with our heating, it is working well. Warmco have been available to assist with giving advice on our system. Overall, we were very impressed from the start to finish of our dealings with Warmco.

Mark Donoghue – Brownhills Leisure World – November 2020

Overall I'm happy with the service provided by Warmco. The site visit and quoting process was good. The install guys were good, on time, seemed to get on with the job and completed it on time with good communications. As for the heaters, as it hasn’t been too cold as yet, I can't comment fully on how effective they are.”

Darrell Freeman – Big Dude Clothing, Ellesmere Port October 2020

Warmco were knowledgeable when it came to recommending a heating system to us. They explained the system in a way that gave us confidence in the products and services they were offering. Most importantly, the price was right. The installation was great, the engineers came when we were told they would, worked round our warehouse operations, did a neat job of the installation and were clean and tidy. We are pleased to say that the heating does exactly what we need it to do.
