Loreto College chapel has been cold in winter for 130 years. Now thanks to a new hydronic heating system installed by Paul Turner Plumbing of Ballarat, church services at the chapel will never be cold again. The chapel is Heritage listed so minimum modifications have been made to the building to add the new heating system. The radiators are installed on pedestal brackets and the boiler is mounted on a frame. The chapel is now heated to a comfortable 21 deg C. and the humidity (dampness) has dropped from 93% to 52%, aiding in preserving the old pipe organ and painted wall decorations. the system is controlled with a Honeywell CM907 thermostat with a remote sensor.
P. S. Thanks to Mick for all the laughs on commissioning day.
