An big old boiler churns out hot air

South Shields Town Hall heating argument won’t cool down

Perhaps he has a point, but surely it should have been argued and publicised last year when the item was up for discussion, not now when the work to install the new heating system is almost completed.

It always seemed to me, in the past and more recently, that many rooms in South Shields Town Hall were far too warm when the heating was on, perhaps because it was not possible to control the the climate in individual rooms, hopefully the new system will have better controls to effectively consume less energy in areas where it is not needed. In the council chamber and committee rooms what we need is a system to reduce the amount of hot air emitted at certain times – particularly as elections approach!

  1. I work in bioenergy and they could have had a biomass boiler which would have been capital neutral. A simple ESCO contract were the capital costs are paid for from the energy savings could have been used. Indeed the new Renewable Heat Incentive would have helped with the fuel costs and the whole system could have been paid for within 5-7 years.

    Why bother with carbon reduction plans when you have the opportunity to lead they way but as usual fall short on balls and innovation

  2. A lot of dramatic hot air in these freezing times plus a few leaky pipes and interesting plumbing work on the STC agendas.

  3. Not to mention steamy couplings, heated exchanges and piping up at the wrong time, and in the wrong place….
