Dr Dan Poulter MP visits Hounsfield Boilers
Leading oil boiler manufacturer, Hounsfield Boilers, recently welcomed Dr Dan Poulter MP to their Needham Market factory. The MP undertook a tour of the factory and took part in a discussion on how boiler manufacturers can reduce their carbon footprint.
Andrew Hounsfield, MD, Hounsfield Boilers, led the MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich around the Hounsfield factory and introduced him to his revolutionary new Tuscan oil-fired boilers.
Dr Dan Poulter was very impressed with the range. He says: “Hounsfield Boilers are a great example of British manufacturing at its best. They’ve created a revolutionary design and build boilers to last, which is ideal for helping us all reduce our carbon footprint.”
Hounsfield Boilers are designed to last a lifetime and are built with energy efficiency in mind. The company was set up by Hounsfield in 2008 following a 30-year career in the boiler industry. His boilers have become popular with plumbers and installers thanks to their ingenious design and durability, many of his boilers have found homes in some of the region’s most prestigious properties.
Andrew describes why he decided to invent the Hounsfield Boiler. He says: “I had worked for some of the biggest UK boiler companies, but I had become frustrated – manufacturers had become too price focused, which had driven down the quality of the boilers on offer. I decided to put the customer first and invent a boiler which would minimise the lifetime running costs for the homeowner and create a practical design that’s easy to install and service for the installer. With my engineering background I was able to design an oil-fired boiler that satisfied these objectives and develop a high-performance boiler with a host of features not found on any other in the marketplace”.
Some of the extraordinary features include air-craft grade materials, clever design, and extra thick insulation to retain heat and reduce noise; these factors culminate to create a market leading product.
