Cover of Church Heating Principes document

Fabric Commissions guiding principle No. 1

For all churches, not wasting energy and optimizing the system they already have are key places to start

This involves, for example, maintaining gutters and roofs to avoid damp, draught-proofing doors, lagging pipes, insulating lofts, having broken windows repaired, zoning the heating, and setting the heating controls correctly. In this way, heat loss can be significantly reduced, reducing the demand for heat input from the heating system, and cutting energy use. It can also mean behavioural change; encouraging people to sit away from problematic draughts, turning off heaters and lights that aren’t needed, and keeping track of energy use more closely, in order to spot any waste.

How Cooltouch Heaters can help

We are not really able to help with  these fundamental energy management tasks other than to help point out where heat loss is occurring when undertaking a site visit and demonstration.
