Kirtling Towers, the remains of a Grade I 16th Century Tudor house, has recently received its first two installations of Windhager biomass heating systems. Located near Newmarket, Cambridgeshire, Kirtling Towers now form part of the Fairhaven Estates, owned by Lord and Lady Fairhaven.
The estate made the decision to convert to biomass as an economical and more sustainable alternative to its previous oil heating system.
Two separate Windhager biomass district heating systems, each comprising an 180kW BioWIN Excel Kaskade system, were installed by local installers Acorn Renewable Solutions. The installation includes an automatic feed and backup system. They are currently underway with phase three of the project, with an expected completion by the winter.
Commenting on the installation of the new Windhager boilers, Beverley Thompson, Lord Fairhaven’s private assistant, says: “We are extremely impressed so far with our new Windhager boilers and the entire process has been excellent. The installation by Acorn Renewable Solutions was very professional and tidy given the extent of work that was needed. It was like a work of art and has caused no hassle for us whatsoever.
“We decided to convert to biomass as we wanted to reduce our carbon footprint as well as save a significant amount of money on our yearly energy bills. Acorn Renewable Solutions advised us that Windhager biomass boilers are the best and most reliable on the market, and we cannot disagree. We are very much looking forward to the benefits that the boilers will bring us over the winter months.”
