BP Rolls is one of the largest independent commercial and private vehicle repairers in the UK, with nearly 200 employees and sites in Andover and Newport. The company seeks to minimise any negative impact on the environment, so energy efficiency was a key criterion for the new heating.
A Powrmatic NVx suspended warm air heater, installed by Andover Gas Ltd, has replaced an old floor-mounted heater in the 2,500m2 workshop of BP Rolls at West Portway, Andover, to improve comfort levels and ensure compliance with the latest regulations.
The new horizontally-flued NVx heater is sited at high level to comply with regulations and draws combustion air directly from the outside because of the gases and fine dust within the space. For optimum efficiency the NVx is connected to the existing building management system.
Andrew Lewis of Andover Gas Ltd commented: “BP Rolls is very pleased with the improved comfort in the workshop and has also reduced its heating bills significantly due to the enhanced control.”
