Mike Haslin, Chief Executive Officer at TUCO, The University Caterers Organisation, discusses how to achieve value for money in these unpredictable times
Lower running costs with low surface temperature radiators from Autron
Autron natural convection LST (Low Surface Temperature) radiators provide the ideal heating solution for schools and nurseries, in fact anywhere where effective and energy efficient heating needs to be delivered with an emphasis on user safety. As a result Autron LSTs have been widely specified for many years throughout the UK education sector.
Thanks to its low water content an Autron natural convection radiator can typically start to deliver effective room heating within 2 minutes, compared to up to 20 minutes for conventional panel radiators. This responsiveness means that heating only needs to come on when required. The reduced need to ‘buffer’ the heating can deliver significant fuel cost savings and contributes to a more comfortable learning and teaching environment. For extra peace of mind all Autron heat emitters have been independently tested by BSRIA, the respected building industry standards consultancy, in accordance with BSEN 442.
A short video is now available to watch covering the benefits Autron LST radiators can deliver, supported by a number of recent school installation case studies. This is available at http://www.autron.co.uk/autron-school-case-studies-video/.
