Pew Heaters Offer Direct Heating - Most Economic Means of Heating in a Church

We have discovered one of the most economical ways of heating a church: pew heaters offering direct heating, being turned on only when needed, to heat up the church-goers as needed! These days in the UK we have a cold wave, with many of the schools in Scotland being closed due to the cold and most people adding another layer when they go to work. It is cold. But it does not have to break the bank when it comes to heating a church! Read more to find out about:How pew heaters provide the most economical means of heating in a church buildingWhat pew heaters do you need for the church building?How does pew heating work?Where can you buy church pew heaters?Pew Heaters Providing the Most Economical Means of Heating in a Church BuildingIf you are taking care of a church building, a synagogue, or any place of worship that is not constantly attended by people but needs heating when people are there, we warmly recommend the pew heaters on our website. Made by BN Thermic according to the highest industry specifications, these pew heaters provide the most economical means of heating in a church. Here are some of the amazing features and benefits of having pew heaters in a church building. The pew heaters heat people directly, rather than heating the surrounding air. The pew heaters are silent and draught-free, having virtually no warm-up period. The pew heaters are at a low level and match the decor, coming in a dark brown finish and being visually unobtrusive. Many years of trouble-free service: the pew heaters are made of steel, thus ensuring many years with no service required. No extra external guards are required since these pew heaters are all you need!Switch ON the pews that are occupied to keep running costs to an absolute minimum! Only the occupied pews need to be heated, and this can be easily done. What Pew Heaters do you need for the Church Building?When addressing the problem of heating in a church building, a mosque, a synagogue, or any place of worship that requires heating, one must first do some measurements to make sure he orders the right items in the right quantity. BN Thermic provides a simple 3-step guide to measure the pews to make sure you order the right pew heaters. Measure the pews. In order to directly heat the pew occupants, you need to measure the pews. The rule of thumb is that the greater the percentage of the pew that is heated, the more effective the system will be. You need to measure the distance between the support beams of the pews. If there are no support beams, simply measure the total length of the pew. Record your measurements. You must measure each pew individually because, over time, some of the pews may have been refurbished or damaged, which can affect the distance between the support beams. After measuring the pews, please write down the measurements: from front to back, pew number, and full dimensions. Submit the measurements. Once the measurements are done and recorded, you can submit them via email to SparksDirect.co.uk and we will contact the specialists at BN Thermic to advise on what is the heating scheme they propose. For any further information on how to do all this, do not hesitate to contact us. How Does the Pew Heating Work?The Pew Heaters we have on our website are designed to provide direct heating to the pew occupants, and they can be switched ON or OFF as needed. The greater the percentage of the pew length that is heated, the more effective the system is. In general, the pew heaters are mounted to the pew's backboard right below the seat. And if there is no backboard available, no problem: you can order the PHF floor bracket or you can fix it to the underside of the pew seat using the PHB suspension brackets. There are three main pew heaters available, based on the length of the pew or the space between the pew beams:BN Thermic PH30 Pew Heater - when the space between the seat supports or pew is 500mm to 750mmBN Thermic PH45 Pew Heater - when the space between the seat supports or pew is 751mm to 100mmBN Thermic PH65 Pew Heater - when the space between the seat supports or pew is 1000mm to 1500mmIf the space between the seat supports exceeds 1.5m, you can use a combination of pew heaters to make it up. The pew heaters can be easily fitted to the backboards with no additional brackets. The brown finish of the pew heaters is unobtrusive, making them virtually unnoticed in the church. Where can you buy Church Pew Heaters?Check out the Pew Heaters - low-level heating for churches - via Sparks.Buy Pew Heaters at SparksAnd if you need any help with the design of the heating in the church building, BN Thermic offers a free design service and free site visits nationwide!

The Beginners' Guide To Heating Solutions

The method of heating your property is vital, whether that’s your home or commercial property. The best heating solutions will keep you warm, significantly reduce your electricity bills and lower your environmental footprint, so it’s important to choose wisely.There are dozens of types of heating solutions to choose from and sometimes it can be overwhelming. If you’re looking for a new heating system or are considering making a switch to a different system entirely, it’s always the best idea to evaluate the various options on the market.Gas heating systems are generally the most common heating method in England, Wales and Scotland. However, over four million homes across the UK are off the main gas grid. Blocks of flats and units make up a great deal of them, and they’re often looking for alternatives to gas central heating.Luckily, there are a variety of heating choices available that both commercial enterprises and residential properties can take advantage of, whether they’re on or off the gas grid. Below, we’ve outlined a beginner’s guide to the different heating solutions on the market.We’ve structured this guide as follows:Central Heating: An IntroductionWhat is Central Heating?Types of Central Heating SystemsGas Central HeatingElectric Central HeatingOil Central HeatingLPG Central Heating5 Main Types of Heating SolutionsElectric BoilersUnderfloor Heating SystemsCeiling HeatersWall HeatersStorage HeatersSo, what is the best heating solution for my property?Central Heating: An IntroductionBefore we get into the nitty-gritty and the different types of heating solutions, the first thing you should determine is whether you require a central heating system or something more localised. It is important to know the difference so that you can select a heating system most appropriate to your property.What is Central Heating?Central heating is a system designed to distribute warmth throughout a building. It typically does this by creating heat at a certain point in the property and spreading it throughout the rest of the building usually through water, steam or air. Many systems also distribute hot water across the property.This means that one central heater is installed at a certain part of the property, such as in a garage or a wardrobe. When it is switched on, it proceeds to distribute heat through ducts.You can usually mix central heating with different systems in order to manage the entire climate of the building. This is done through the operation of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems.Central heating is different from localised heating, which refers to only heating one particular spot in your property (such as a living room or one room in your office).Types of Central Heating SystemsBelow, we’ll outline the types of central heating systems you need to know about.Gas Central HeatingIf your property is connected to the natural gas grid, then a gas central heating system is likely going to be the most viable system to choose.Your central heating would normally be powered by gas ducted heaters or a gas-fired boiler, which provides heat for your entire home. You would have a boiler that would burn methane gas extracted from the gas mains.You will sometimes hear gas heat systems referred to as wet systems, which will typically heat up your water using radiators or underfloor heating.Pros of gas central heating – Gas is incredibly efficient, and you’ll often get a good return on the money you put in of ever energy unit you use. Storage costs are minimal, when compared to LPG and oil (outlined below).Cons of gas central heating – Many properties are not on the grid, meaning gas is often not often a choice. While you can get a good return on your investment, it is still expensive given the UK have a limited amount to go around. It is also a fossil fuel and contributes harmful carbon to the environment.Electric Central HeatingIf you’re not on the gas grid (like a huge number of properties in the UK), you could consider a number of electric heating solutions. Nearly every home has access to an electricity grid, so this is one of the more popular alternatives to gas central heating.There are many different types of electric heaters available on the market, but one of our favourites is storage heaters – this is one of the most cost-effective heating solutions which you can use to distribute warmth at night.While they are a little expensive, they can help you reduce your energy bill, especially during winter. Think of having a boiler that is a kettle, except it heats much more than just a cup of tea.Pros of electric central heating – Electric heating systems are much easier (and, therefore cheaper) to install than regular gas heat systems. It also requires less maintenance, doesn’t need an annual service and is widely available across the UK.Cons of electric central heating – Unfortunately, electricity is about 3 to 4 times more expensive than gas. Electricity is generated in gas-powered stations. Gas prices are going up – which means so is electricity.Oil Central HeatingOil central heating also relies on boiler systems, which is an excellent solution if you are not connected to the main gas grid. Boiler systems you can purchase today are highly efficient devices, but you should know that there are different types of oil you can purchase.Oil type C2 is probably the most affordable kind of oil on the market because it just uses kerosene.Kerosene is the most common kind of fuel used across UK properties. It also doesn’t ‘gel’ as much as other types of oil (in other words, crystals are less likely to form to prevent the oil from flowing – which can happen in the colder months)Oil type D is a more expensive oil, and is more commonly seen in commercial premises or large properties.Pros of oil central heating – oil is incredibly efficient, and a great alternative to both gas and electric heating systems if you don’t have access to those grids. Heating oil will also burn faster and doesn’t generate as much carbon as your traditional gas system.Cons of oil central heating – it’s more expensive than natural gas. There’s also no central infrastructure in place to facilitate an oil system, so you’ll need your own independent storage tank. Oil boilers may also be slower at creating warmth than a gas boiler.LPG Central HeatingLiquid petroleum gas (LPG) works similarly to gas heating but is highly effective if you can’t get a gas heat system. A big difference, however, is that LPG is delivered straight to your door (rather than brought in from pipes under the water).Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) heating is produced by a propane or butane boiler. These boilers will heat your water and spread warmth throughout your property through underfloor heating and radiators.Pros of LPG central heating – it’s highly efficient, and also you’ll get a great return on each unit of energy that your heating system uses.Cons of LPG central heating – LPG is costly, and that cost has escalated recently. Because LPG is delivered to you, the usual risk of something going wrong in transit exists – bad weather, traffic delays and theft. 5 Main Types of Heating SolutionsWhether you have a central heating system or a more localised heater, there is no singular way to have a heating system installed throughout your home.There are different ways to set one up. Below, we’ll outline the 5 heating solutions that we think are some of the most effective.Electric BoilersElectric boilers work with running water being heated by electricity. Once the water is heated, it passes through the remainder of your property’s heating system and can warm your home, office or industrial complex with the temperature you choose.Overall, these boilers are excellent for both central heating and localised heating solutions.Types of electric boilersThere are different types of electric boilers that you’ll come across on the market, such as:Combi boilers – combi (short for ‘combination’) boilers are arguably the most popular boiler in the whole of the UK. This is probably because they are extremely economical, and only heat the water that you actually use (and not just all of your water generally).Regular boilers – also known as a ‘heat-only’ or conventional boiler, the regular boiler will send hot water to your radiators and your hot water cylinder (even if you don’t actually end up using that water).System boilers – these boilers are similar to conventional boilers, but they take up less space.Which one you pick depends on your property, your budget and your heating goals, but no doubt the potential for an excellent electric heating solution lies with one of these boilers.Underfloor Heating SystemsUnderfloor heating systems are (obviously) designed to heat your property from underneath the floors. As hot air rises, warmth is then spread throughout the property evenly.This type of heating system is especially effective in places like:bathrooms;rooms with a lot of foot traffic;rooms with cold floors; androoms with high ceilings.Underfloor heaters can be easily installed underneath most materials, especially laminate, concrete and wooden floors. They can also either come as self-adhesive mesh, heating mats or heating cables.Buy Underfloor Heating Mats at SparksTypes of Underfloor HeatersThere are two types of underfloor heating systems you should know about, before making your decision to purchase one.Electric is the most common, and involves heating your floors with a mat, mesh or electric cable.Hydronic involves installing heating pipes in your home and heating the floors with hot water. These tend to be much more expensive than electric underfloor heating systems.What floor coverings are suitable for underfloor heating?Below, we’ll outline the different underfloor heating systems for different floor materials.TimberWooden floors are certainly suitable for a heating system to distribute warmth. However, it’s vital (before you install any wooden underfloor heating system) that the humidity of your timber does not drop to the point where the floor begins to shrink or wrap. You’ll generally want to make sure the temperature does not go any higher than 27°C (unless another temperature is specified by your manufacturer).ConcreteConcrete has a high level of thermal mass (i.e. the ability to store heat). Therefore, a concrete underfloor heating solution is highly effective because the floor itself will capture and retain the heat. This will make sure your flooring and your property stay warm for a long time after your heating is turned off.LaminateLaminate is made up of multiple layers of wood that run in opposite directions. Unlike traditional hardwood timber, it is more stable. This means it can tolerate the various changes in your heating system. However, it is generally recommended not to turn up any laminate heating to over 27°C (unless the manufacturer has stated otherwise).Ceiling HeatersCeiling heaters are, as the name suggests, heaters installed in the ceiling of your property. They are ideal to install in retail outlets, shops, offices, conference rooms and other areas or places where multiple people get together on a regular basis.Unlike underfloor heating, the main benefit of a ceiling heater is that it can distribute warmth without any obstacles in the way. It won’t be blocked by furniture or thick carpets.If your ceiling is between 2.5 and 3.5 metres – you can use low-temperature ceiling heating, generally anywhere between 26°C and 38°C.If your ceiling is higher than 3.5 metres – then you’ll need a higher flow of temperature. We’d recommend both wall heating (discussed below) and ceiling heating.Buy Ceiling Heaters at SparksWall HeatersWall heaters are the ideal solution if you’re looking for a more localised (as opposed to central) heating solution – in other words, they’ll heat up a concentrated area rather than the entire property. The heaters can heat up fairly quickly, providing the immediately desired heat.Wall heaters are quick and simple to install. All you’ll need to do is plug them into a powerpoint, angle it correctly and away you go. There’s generally no need for any expert consultation, although a professional can help you find the best spot to ensure the unit operates at its optimum capacity.Wall heaters have much cheaper costs upfront, as opposed to an underflooring system.At Sparks Direct, we have an impressive range of wall heaters and patio heaters, if you’re looking to heat up an outdoor seating area.Storage HeatersStorage heaters are designed to store heat during the day so that they can warm your property during the night. The main benefit is that it can reduce your electricity costs significantly, especially in winter.They are a little more expensive compared to other hearing solutions, but they’re a great investment if you need to use electricity in off-peak times.Buy Storage Heaters at SparksSo, what is the best heating solution for my property?At the end of the day, this is the question you’re looking to answer.Ideally, you’re going to want the most energy-efficient system for your property, helping you reduce your energy bills as much as you can while also keeping you and any occupants of your property warm and cosy.If you need any advice on what heating solutions are best for your property, please don’t hesitate to give the experts at Sparks Direct a call.

Church Heating: Economic Heating Systems Developed Specifically for Churches

The efficient and cost effective heating of churches presents a unique combination of considerations - both technical and aesthetic. A successful church heating system will be effective, economic and as unobtrusive as possible. Typically, churches are tall buildings with a correspondingly large air volume to floor area ratio. They tend to be used intermittently and often have poor thermal properties. These factors mean that conventional space heating systems are rarely practical. Churches are also special places and heating systems must be selected with this in mind. The people at BN Thermic have provided church heating systems for many years and over this time has developed two distinct approaches. Both are direct-acting heating systems in that they heat people directly rather than building up and maintaining a body of warm air. They are both silent and draught-free. Where a church has fixed pews, we would always recommend the BN Thermic pew heaters (the BLC range). Why use Pew Heaters for Church Heating? Why use pew heaters in a church? The low-level skirting convector heaters from BN Thermic are designed for installation directly under the seat of a conventional church pew, and we believe that this range is the best church heating system available. Here is why: Direct acting: Direct acting BLC pew heaters provide comfort heat to a church’s congregation without the need to heat the church itself Effective within minutes of switching on: the energy consumption is kept to a minimum as no significant pre-heating is required Under pew mounting position and dark brown paint finish: These features ensure minimal visual impact Silent and draught-free operation: Ensures that the heating system will not in any way detract from the congregation’s experience Tough all-steel construction with metal sheathed, finned heating element: Many years of trouble-free service Automatically resetting over-temperature protection device covering the entire length of the heating element: The heater will automatically be switched off should the flow of air become obstructed at any point along the heater’s length Choice of mounting methods: fix directly to the pew backboard; floor mount (with special brackets); suspend from the underside of the seat. Suitable for most types of pew and floor surfaces.Buy Pew Heaters at Sparks How Pew Heaters Work Pew heaters are installed below the pew seat and provide gentle heat to the pew’s occupants. Once energized the metal-sheathed heating element will quickly reach its optimum temperature causing warm air to rise from the aperture above the central baffle plate. At the same time cooler air will be pulled into the heater through the aperture below the central baffle plate completing the convection cycle. The BN Thermic BLC pew heaters represent the best church heating solution because they are 100% effective within minutes of being switched on. Pew heaters are visually unobtrusive, operate silently and without the draughts and light output associated with other church heating technologies. How to Select Pew Heaters BN Thermic BLC pew heaters are designed to provide direct heating to pew occupants. The greater the percentage of the pew length that is heated, the more effective the system will be. BLC pew heaters are generally mounted to the pew’s back board immediately below the seat. Where a backboard is not available, the heaters can be floor mounted using BLC-FB floor brackets or fixed to the underside of the pew seat using BLC-HB suspension brackets. When required, BLC pew heaters can be protected by fitting the appropriate guard. For example, when the space between seat supports is 650mm - 750mm you can use the BLC300, for 751mm - 1000mm use BLC500, and for 1001mm - 1500mm use BLC750. Of course, when the space between seat supports exceeds 1500mm, a multiple of heaters can (and should) be used. How to Control Pew Heaters BN Thermic BLC pew heaters are generally used to provide direct heating for people sitting in a pew rather than heating the air around them. For this reason, thermostatic control is not usually required. Control is usually manual. The system should be energized approximately 15 minutes before the start of a service to allow sufficient time for the heaters to reach their optimum working temperature. At the end of the service the heaters can be switched off. If preferred, this operation can be performed by a programmable timer. Because these pew heaters are direct acting, there is no need for unoccupied pews to be heated. It is therefore common practice for a simple switch to be fitted to each pew allowing individual pews to be isolated.Church Pew Heaters at Sparks Read more about the church heating solutions and the BN Thermic pew heaters via Sparks, where you can find more about the features and benefits, dimensions, and installation instructions. The above article is inspired by BN Thermic's presentation of the BLC range of pew heaters. More pictures of the application of such pew heaters are below.
