Boiler breakdown fails to dampen spirits

The extensive range of heating options available from the Andrews Boiler Hire fleet came into its own recently when a major London teaching hospital suffered a significant boiler breakdown.

The company said: “Our site survey concluded that the perfect solution would have been a 100 kW boiler, but restricted space for delivery and installation made this impractical.  However, with such a large hire fleet, our engineers were quickly able to present a more practical solution, opting for the smallest, portable electric boiler.” On the evening of one of the hospital’s biggest annual social events, the premises suffered a complete boiler failure, with a lack of heating and hot water. After receiving an emergency call, Andrews Boiler Hire supplied five 22 kW temporary electric boilers, which were delivered and installed discreetly out of hours, ensuring the hospital still had the required heating and hot water capacities, and enabling the event to continue without guests ever knowing there was a problem. Andrews Sykes says that through its Boiler Hire division it has available ‘the widest range of electric, oil-fired and natural gas boilers’ – from 22 kW to 1,500 kW, and can deliver and install equipment at short notice ‘to cover any urgent contingency’.
