Northiam Village Hall Reduces Heating Bills with a HeatingSave BMS
Northiam Village Hall, situated in Rye in East Sussex, has seen its heating and energy bills reduced by a third thanks to HeatingSave’s building management system.
Hosts of a variety of classes, meetings and events for the population of the village of Northiam, the Chairman of the Northiam Village Hall, Keith Whiting, along with the Treasurer of the hall, Bernard Bone, decided they wanted to upgrade their existing heating system to improve their heating and energy management, cut heating costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
After deciding HeatingSave was the perfect choice to make this happen for them, Northiam Village Hall had the HeatingSave BMS installed in August 2020.
Mr Bone has since said that he is “confident we’ve saved a third on our gas bills.”
To strengthen security at the village hall, the Chairman and Treasurer also decided to install two smart card access control readers. This grants access only to authorised personnel who help run the hall or those who have booked it out for a class, meeting or event.
Access control and security for village halls
Village halls are often very busy places that can be rented or hired out for a wide range of events such as exercise classes, council meetings or birthday parties. This means that there will be a variety of people going in and out of the hall at any one time.
It is vital for the people in charge of looking after village halls that they are aware of who is using the building at all times; for a variety of reasons. These reasons are availability of the hall as well as the safety and security of both the hall and the people using it.
