Italy

In Italy, our colleagues at Nolo Climat have finally let one of our newest players off the bench to make their debut. We are of course referring to our new submersible pumps, and it is with great delight that we announce that some of these are now out on hire! Quite fittingly, a sporting association needed to move water from one pond to another, prompting an enquiry and our first official pump order.

Andrews launches 36kW mobile electric boiler with built-in heat exchanger

We are excited to announce the launch of our highly anticipated 36kW mobile electric boiler. Small but mighty in terms of its output, this product provides an astounding 36kW of heating despite its lightweight design.

This compact powerhouse provides a simple solution that fits through any standard door and is fully manoeuvrable with wheels. It features a built-in heat exchanger to give an even sleeker look.

Simple to install, the unit has a drastically reduced carbon footprint when compared with other boilers of comparable size.

What are the signs of boiler failure?

Few things are more inconvenient than your boiler breaking down unexpectedly. Modern boilers are sturdier and more resilient than they were a few years ago, but even they are not infallible. A single unit will contain dozens of important components that need to work in harmony to efficiently deliver heating and hot water.

Because of this, there is still quite a lot of scope for things to go wrong – and we take a look at some of the more common reasons below:

Age and efficiency

Wear and tear are, quite simply, unavoidable. Boilers are not built to last forever but with the appropriate maintenance, a traditional gas model is designed to offer between 10 and 15 years of dependable service. In some cases, you may get two decades of use if your unit has been looked after properly and the key elements are made from high quality materials.

Andrews lays on another assist for Football League club!

There’s a bit of a misconception around temporary boiler solutions, with many believing them to be awkward, logistically challenging and time-consuming to install. Not true.

Which is just as well, because around three quarters of our boiler hire agreements at Andrews Sykes relate to emergency projects where reactivity is key.

In mid-September, we were contacted by the estates team responsible for managing a multi-purpose stadium, after a major issue was diagnosed with the internal boiler network on site.

Thirty-unit boiler hire package maintains district heating system output

District heating systems are seen as a gateway to lowering carbon emissions and increasing efficiency because of their ability to generate energy from a single location. Domestic hot water and heating can then be delivered to commercial and residential premises from a centralised source, negating the need for buildings to have independent systems.

Just over 500,000 properties are currently connected to district heating systems in the UK, and the expectation is that this figure will rise sharply over the coming years to help us achieve our target of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Andrews Sykes makes an appearance on Sky Sports!

The more eagle-eyed of those who tuned in to this week’s Edinburgh Derby will have spotted our branding appear on the hoardings at various points during the match.

As proud club partners, we were delighted to have rotating logos feature on Hibernian FC’s new LED advertising system during one of the most highly anticipated fixtures on the Scottish football calendar.

Although the cut and thrust affair eventually ended goalless, Tuesday night’s clash against Hearts was a fantastic platform for us to boost our brand awareness both locally and internationally via a significant television audience.

Andrews’ Rapid Response Boiler saves local football club

Our expertise in the sports and leisure industry prompted Oldham Athletic Football Club to approach us after their existing boiler system was taken offline just two days before a home match was scheduled to take place at Boundary Park. An issue beyond the club’s control had left the entire stadium without heating and hot water and needed to be rectified immediately in order for vital amenities to be available to players, staff and supporters on matchday.

The issue was brought to our attention on the Thursday, less than 48 hours before the game was due to kick-off. Failure to address the problem in time would have left shower blocks without warm water, corporate areas and lounges without heating and the kitchen also largely out of action. With urgent intervention essential and time quickly running out, it was decided that our 100kW Rapid Response Boiler would be ideal for the application and provide an adequate heating duty for the stadium’s requirements.

Concrete batching plant contacts Andrews Boilers

The process of concrete batching is reliant upon several factors to ensure the quality and integrity of the final product. While the correct proportion of materials (cement, aggregates and water, to name three) must be accurately measured, arguably just as important is maintaining an optimum temperature to guarantee the production of sustainable, robust concrete.

We were recently contacted by a batching plant in Bristol, with a long-term equipment hire required to maintain the desired conditions throughout both summer and winter. The nature of the application meant our regional engineer would need to specify a solution capable of dealing with significant changes to the ambient temperature.

Queue jumping tops list of things that irk Brits, study finds

BMW drivers ignoring their indicators, getting locked out and ‘jobsworths’ are among the things that bring us to boiling point, according to a recent survey.

The study of 2,000 adults revealed other infuriating issues are having no heating, people eating loudly and queue jumpers.

For four in 10, ‘people who think rules don’t apply to them’ will send their blood pressure rising, and 27 per cent get irked by drivers not stopping at zebra crossings.

Another one in three (33 per cent) feel the red mist descending when they are sent from pillar to post on automated company customer service lines.

Emergency boiler installation prevents relocation of the elderly and infirm

Due to the vulnerability of people receiving social care, there remains a constant need for any issues on site to be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. Unsurprisingly, nursing homes and similar applications are subject to strict health and safety regulations that include meeting minimum temperature requirements on site.

The importance of delivering a reliable source of heating was recently made apparent at a residential facility in Sheffield, after a complete boiler failure necessitated that a temporary unit was installed in its place. Our client had already taken the decision to purchase a more modern boiler but this was not expected to be ready until the end of November.
