Customer Brief

In September 2022, we were given permission to install a heating system in this 4,000 sq. ft. caravan engineering space, by introducing a Winterwarm, XR40+ and a Winterwarm XR20+, suspended, propane fired warm air heater into the space.

Features of the Heating system

These premises were a brand-new portal framed construction and as they were insulated to modern standards, had lower heating requirements. We quoted to heat the area to 20 degrees when the temperature outside is minus three degrees, using two of our modern, energy efficient heaters from the Winterwarm XR+ range. As our modulating heaters will automatically switch to low fire when the thermostat has detected that the area has reached the desired temperature, this can offer large cost savings (compared to non-modulating heaters). For example, the XR40+ will modulate down to 25kw from 40, when the thermostat registers that the area has reached the desired temperature. We suspended the heaters using wall brackets and we flued the emitted gases through the walls. These heaters were room sealed, and fan assisted to take clean air for combustion from outside of the building. This is often desirable if you have any particulates within the air in the building, such as elevated levels of dust or spray paint. Sitting these heaters on suspended wall brackets, freed up a large amount of valuable floor space. The installation was completed in two days, to minimise disruption to the customer’s schedules.

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.
