Lochinvar has supplied two high efficiency gas-fired EcoSword water heaters to the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, which forms an integral part of the multi-sport Stadium MK in Milton Keynes – home of the MK Dons Football Club and the Marshall Arena.
The Lochinvar fully condensing, low NOx storage water heaters were installed by the contractor Professional Energy Solutions to provide a dedicated hot water system for the DoubleTree’s new in-house laundry facility.
Previously, the 304-bedroom hotel outsourced its laundry services, but now expects to achieve considerable cost savings and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by keeping the service on-site and using high efficiency technology, like the EcoSword water heaters. As a result, the investment in the new laundry is expected to pay back in less than 18 months.
EcoSword water heaters are available in nine models with storage capacities ranging from 163 to 388 litres and rapid hot water recovery rates from 210 to 540 litres per hour based on a temperature rise of 50°C. This makes them an excellent cost-effective option for end users looking to use condensing technology in small and medium-sized hot water demand applications.
