Hounsfield Boilers has come to the rescue of a landlord in Suffolk whose wood chip burning system was proving inconsistent due to the demands of substantial hot water and underfloor heating system. Orwell View Barns is a collection of short let cottages and a barn conversion on the banks of the Orwell River, Suffolk. The complex has a total of 14 bedrooms, so an unreliable heating system was a real issue for landlord Richard Wrinch.
Wrinch explains: “The 120Kw wood chip system was only 10-years old but was suffering from wood chip blockages, which resulted in heating issues to the tenants. We discussed possible solutions with our engineer, Nick Grimwood, and we opted for two oil-fired boilers, which could work together to support the woodchip burner; now when sensors pick up a drop in water temperature, the oil boilers kick in to ensure a constant supply of heat.”
Nick is the MD of Grimwood and Co, he had no hesitation in specifying Hounsfield Boilers for the job. He said: “You can tell an engineer designed it rather than a CAD drawer, all the parts are easy to access and I can install a Hounsfield boiler in half the time it takes for any other boiler, thanks to their user-friendly design.”
