Cover of Church Heating Principes document

Fabric Commissions guiding principle No. 6

For those churches with historic interiors and building fabric, which are susceptible to changes in environmental conditions, expert advice must be sought

This is to ensure any new heating regime or changes to an existing system does not cause added harm to the historic fabric and interiors.

How Cooltouch Heaters can help

We must remember that 13th century churches were never meant to be heated.  It is not until Victorian times that heating systems were installed in village churches.

Wall paintings and memorials can be badly affected by extreme variations in temperature and humidity caused by whole building heating systems.  Where whole church heating is used a constant stable temperature and humidity is required to prevent damage to these important bits of history.

We aim to apply minimum warmth to the building so that the environment is not affected.
