The Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club, Cultra

The Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club is one of the largest Sailing Clubs in Northern Ireland with around 1,000 members
Our heating system before didn’t allow for much control– it was separated into 3 zones to heat different areas of the Clubhouse, but this was ineffective and led to areas being heated that weren’t being used on a daily basis.  The control system was in the bar and could be accessed by everyone, and this didn’t allow it to be managed effectively.

We needed to upgrade our boiler and wanted a more cost effective, efficient and environmentally friendly way to manage zoning the heating, so that only rooms that are being used are being heated.

We wanted it to be controlled by management only. We also wanted to be able to plan a week in advance what heat was needed, and when to be most efficient.  It needed to be simple and easy to use, and remotely operable if required.

The detailed proposal and demonstration of the product provided the answers to all of our issues with the heating, and allowed us to control the heating room by room, both remotely and on site. It allowed us to limit access to those who needed it, and also gave an option for a 1 hour local override of the controls at the radiators if required.

It is easy to use and you can plan a week in advance for heating various rooms that are only used occasionally.  It is more efficient and means we only have heating where and when we need it, so there is less wastage and it is friendlier to the environment.

Our energy consumption has dropped significantly since installing the Genius system and upgrading the boiler. This reduction has been crucial for our business in the current climate of rising gas prices.

It is extremely easy to manage, both through the PC and through the app on our phones.  Zones can be updated and amended in seconds.

The service that Gaia has provided has been excellent. The after sales support has also been excellent in helping make sure that the system is fully functional and working to the best of its ability.
