Renfrewshire Council – Langcraigs Primary School
Langcraigs Primary School in Paisley is one of many schools across the UK seeking ways to reduce their operating costs in an increasingly challenging budgetary time.
CircoSense provides a solution to this issue through providing energy savings through intelligent water circulation, cutting the costs of heating the hot water in the secondary return heating system. An initial site survey of the premises was carried out by fully trained engineers to establish the current hot water system and the amount of energy being used to heat the water.
Unique to this case, CircoSense collaborated with the Strathclyde Eco Innovation Unit (SEIU) at the University of Strathclyde, who carried out an independent and rigorous testing regime to ensure accurate savings could be determined.
The system was fitted in less than a day and causes no disruption as the water output is not affected during installation. CircoSense was installed quickly and efficiently and the system could then get to work, detecting and storing usage patterns that can then achieve a balance between optimal energy savings and optimal comfort level.
A big concern of the Council with regards to the hot water supply is the potential development of legionella, however CircoSense ensures that water temperature stays at the same temperature, set by the building operators, in order to ensure that the disease would not be allowed to develop, ensuring legionella compliance for the client.
CircoSense established optimal comfort level through memorising usage patterns, provided minimum energy savings of 42% and reduced carbon emissions. This unique product can be retrofitted to any secondary return hot water system.
“I certainly would recommend CircoSense to other councils, we’re just about to go through the process to install them in the vast majority of buildings that we operate” – Craig Thorpe, Renfrewshire Council
