New Gas Fired Heaters Installed at Deverell Hall

Main Hall - New Gas Heating Installation

As many of you will know, we had some issues with the older wall mounted gas heaters that are in the MAIN HALL that were serviced at the end of October 2013.

It was found that 3 out of the four heaters - the oldest ones that have been in use for nearly 50 years - had finally reached the end of their life span! For Health and Safety reasons these were turned off and Brian Andrews made arrangements for new heaters to be installed as quickly as possible.

We have already had one of these 3 heaters replaced, and the remaining two gas heaters are scheduled for replacement on 2nd and 3rd January 2014.

Why did it take so long?

We have been asked why did it take so long to get the heating replaced. The fact is that these are COMMERCIAL and INDUSTRIAL TYPE heaters, which need to be ordered in by our gas fitting company. Fortunately we had the money to order and pay for these heaters, as the replacements are expensive (unlike normal domestic heating units) you would have at your home.

However, during the period we did source and supply additional electrical heating, which apart from the excessive costs of running them, managed to keep everyone warm!
