Premium UK gym and health club chain Esporta has carried out an intensive six-month upgrade of its heating systems with the installation of a combination of Remeha Gas compact floor standing condensing boilers into a number of its 55 clubs around the country. The replacement of 7000kW of old atmospheric and pressure jet boilers achieves for Esporta the dual purposes of reducing greenhouse emissions and cutting gas and electricity consumptions for its various health clubs.

Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration consultant Mistral Technical Services recommended the high performance Remeha Gas condensing boilers range for their high efficiency, as they convert 90% or more of their fuel into heat, compared to 80% for conventional atmospheric boilers. Other factors influencing the decision were the reliability and quality of the build, and the technical support offered by Remeha Commercial. The appropriate Remeha models were specified by Mistral who also produced a list of approved installers on behalf of Esporta.

Given the ecological commitment of Esporta, Mistral particularly liked the ultra low NOx benefits of the Remeha Gas condensing boilers.

While nitrous oxide (NOx) is less than one-thousandth as abundant as carbon dioxide, it is almost 300 times more effective at trapping heat, making it a contributor to global warming and climate change. Furthermore, in addition to their environmental impact, NOx emissions also have significant local health effects, including asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and aggravating pre-existing heart conditions, a key factor for consideration for Esporta as a leader in the gym and health club sector.

Esporta estimate that with the installation of the Remeha Gas ECO modulating condensing boilers, they will reduce NOx levels on site by at least 90% and CO2 levels by 26% compared with their previous old pressure jet boilers.

The health clubs also anticipate significant gas reductions of at least 20% post installation. In the clubs where the Remeha condensing boilers have replaced atmospheric boilers, these already impressive savings will be still 25% higher.

Esporta has set its brand firmly on track to creating a more sustainable business by upgrading its boilers with high efficiency, proven technology from market leader Remeha Commercial.
