DRU Installs Lpg Church Heaters
As part of a major refurbishment programme, DRU has replaced old and inefficient overhead electric heaters with Kamara powered flue lpg wall heaters at St Peter’s, a rural church in Hixon, Staffordshire. St Peter’s, a Grade 2 listed building dating from 1849, was designed by renowned Victorian architect Gilbert Scott and is part of the mid-Trent diocese.
The Kamara wall heaters are powered by lp gas from a 2,000 litre lpg gas storage vessel buried in ground adjoining the church graveyard, an operation made difficult by the proximity of several yew trees.
Kevin Piggott at DRU said: “The Kamara heaters were installed in discreet locations throughout the church, with minimal disturbance to its historic features. The system is ideal for St Peter’s church, which only has one service per week, together with weddings and other events.
“DRU Kamara heaters are designed for large space heating in churches, schools and other public buildings. They have a forced air heating system that can heat a church in one hour. Air is drawn from outside the building for combustion, resulting in safe, comfortable and effective heating.
“The heaters are over 90 per cent efficient, making them cheaper to install and run than an equivalent central heating system. Reverend Steve Abram has expressed his delight with the comfort and efficiency of the heaters and praised the expertise of the installers W T Morton & Son.”
