    Cost effective commercial heating and cooling for Education

    From classrooms and high traffic university campuses to dormitory accommodation, hydronic heating and cooling products are reshaping the way educational institutions manage their climate control needs. Innovative systems and solutions are enhancing student comfort, improving energy efficiency, and promoting a more sustainable future for learning and living spaces. Low surface temperatures, high returns

    A new Melbourne based early learning centre opted for the installation of 19 radiator panels, each with low surface temperature covers attached, perfect for safety critical settings. The 19 panels are powered by a BAXI duo-tec boiler, which were installed outside and paired with a stainless-steel flue.

    Savings of up to 90% in Co2 emissions for Performing Arts Centre

    The performing arts centre of a Melbourne secondary college saw an energy boost overall with three new outdoor boilers replacing a single outdated model, installed on a rooftop plant, along with expansion tanks. Cascade controls ensure ongoing energy efficiency. Water pressure requirements are met with Grundfos pumps, with the new condensing boilers providing approximately 20% energy savings and further savings of 30% when cascade operation is in effect. Overall, the condensing boiler technology yields savings of up to 90% in Co2 emissions.
