Low carbon heating system Case Study
26 April 2022
A strategic decision was made that the area on the top floor of our HQ building needed modernising. The area comprised of several larger rooms used as meeting and training facilities, and some much smaller offices.
These offices, which had sloping ceilings due to being located in the roof space were very narrow and could have a claustrophobic atmosphere. They could also get uncomfortably warm in the summer and cold in winter.
It was decided to improve this space to make it a more hospitable place to work.
The first step was to improve the thermal efficiency of the area. This work will be covered in a future case study.
We decided that, rather than removing the plumbing and radiators for the original central heating system on the top floor area, which may have created problems for the heating circuit, they would be left in situ but turned off using the radiator thermostats.

This upgrade work was completed as part of the Net Zero Cheshire Building Decarbonisation project, part funded by Cheshire and Warrington LEP.
