Case Study - Preston Council, Harris Museum
EndoTherm was trialed by Preston City Council at the Harris Museum.
Opened in 1893, the museum and art gallery is a grade I listed building located in Preston City Centre. It also houses the city’s public library.
The museum, which covers 4 floors with large ornate period radiators is heated by 4 x Potterton Avon 2 boilers, each with a max output of 200kW. 32L of EndoTherm was installed in January 2016.
A direct comparison of the usage from AMR (actual meter readings) was taken by the energy management team at Preston Council and compensated with data from Blackpool Airport (baseload 15.5°C).
Results (Energy Saving)
|Time Period||Usage (kWh)||Degree Days (15.5°C)||Usage (kWh) / Degree Days|
|01/02/2015 – 20/12/2015||485,672||1385.5||351|
|01/02/2016 – 20/12/2016||461,655||1501||307.6|
Compensated Saving = 14.14%
Note: No periods of heating system down time were reported during the trial window.
