“Treco’s support throughout the project was excellent. They gave us great advice, project management and support from the initial design phase to installation. They even managed our RHI application for us! Now that we are happy with the system, we plan to install Guntamatic systems at 2 additional sites.”Tom Bond, West Heanton
West Heanton Ltd. is a family-run care home and domiciliary care agency in rural North Devon. The care home was converted from a beautiful old farm house. It has grown and expanded to provide care for twenty three residents as well as seven sheltered living appartments and care in people’s own homes.
The primary requirements for this care home provider were high levels of reliable, constant heat and resident comfort. The six existing oil boilers needed to be replaced with a single biomass boiler, providing heating and hot water to four separate buildings. Treco were tasked with designing and installing a biomass system, working in partnership with the care home’s heating engineer.
Treco supplied and installed a single 100kW Guntamatic Powerchip biomass boiler feeding a district heating scheme. The boiler and fuel store were installed in a converted barn with all of the buildings linked using insulated underground pipe. All fuel is sourced locally and processed directly into the fuel store.
The client was responsible for the construction of the boiler house and fuel store. Treco installed and commissioned the biomass boiler, working with the care home’s heating engineer to connect to the current system.
