A Kent residential care home suffering complete boiler failure following periods of sporadic malfunctions faced the prospect of closure until the intervention of Andrews Boiler Hire.
Andrews engineering team assisted the care home by maintaining comfortable standards by suppling and installing a highly efficient portable oil-fire boiler solution, restoring warmth and hot water facilities to all areas of the home including all 22 bedrooms and community social areas.
Whilst new permanent boiler replacements were sourced and installed managers at the care home turned to Andrews Specialist Hire to supply a temporary heating solution from the Andrews Boiler Hire division.
A full site survey and risk assessment was carried out by specialists from Andrews Boiler Hire to achieve the best solution to the problem, ensuring that the temporary boiler would be supplied and installed in a manner with no risk to the care home residence.
The company supplied a 250kW oil fired boiler, a 3000 litre fully bunded fuel tank, temporary boiler hoses and BSP connections.
The fuel tank was also protected from access by non-authorised personnel. The temporary flow and return pipework was run at a safe, high level into the existing boiler room via access hoses drilled through the wall; hoses were then connected to BSP connections already installed. Successful commissioning meant that the system was able to restore heating and hot water to the home.
