The new heating system of St Peter’s Cathedral in Lancaster includes two wall-mounted cascade condensing boilers from Alpha Heating Innovation, new radiators and ductwork. The boilers have a total output of 240 kW and were specified by J. R. Brook of M&E Building Services to provide a tailored and flexible heating and hot-water solution. They were installed by JW Moore Plumbing.

Keith Smith of JW Moore Plumbing said, ‘The CD115S boilers were perfectly suited to this unique installation, where heating and hot-water requirements were expected to be particularly high at irregular intervals. With the facility to tailor the heating design to the building’s specific requirements, we were able to choose the most appropriate system for the cathedral.’

This extensive heating upgrade was paid for by a cathedral heating fund, with generous donations from neighbouring parishes and local companies — in addition to fund-raising activities. Over £91 000 has been raised so far.
