Care Homes

Aegir Technical Services has a long history of working with care homes and sheltered accommodation. In this environment the watchword is ‘comfort’. All control systems are designed to deliver the optimum level of comfort for the occupants of the care home and the staff who work there.

Whilst temperatures are generally kept higher and more stable than in other building environments the control system can still deliver key energy savings. The clearest benefit is to efficiently sequence the use of the boilers so that no more boilers are running than are necessary at any one time. In systems with inadequate controls all the boilers may be operating when perhaps only 1 or 2 are needed. A good control system will be able to make the most efficient use of the boilers available and switch off those which are not needed.
