Atlantic Boilers of Ashton-under-Lyne has installed an energy-efficient electric boiler at Drymen Primary School, which had contributed to it achieving Green Flag status.
The MULTI-ELEC 120kW three-step electric boiler was installed to provide space heating and priority domestic hot water through an indirect cylinder. It has a super-seasonal efficiency in excess of 99% GCV, is silent in operation, requires minimal ventilation and does not need a flue. Unlike conventional boilerplant maintenance is minimal, with one principal service every four years. The installation was planned by Corporate Services of Stirling Council and installed by Taylor & Frazer Ltd of Paisley.
The Eco-Schools programme is managed in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful, an independent Scottish charity committed to the improvement of the environment in Scotland. It is the Scottish member of the Foundation for Environmental Education.
