This new build project wanted to run their pool 12 months a year without the exposure to the cost of oil. The pool is used daily and is covered when not in use to ensure that energy is not lost unnecessarily. The heat pump also provides heating for the pool room through an under floor and our unique ability to provide domestic hot water at the same time as heating means that the house benefits from water at up to 70C year round.
The single London 9kW Eco Air Boiler is located in the plant room drawing the air from the pool room through a duct. This recycles lost heat from the pool, captures and solar gain and acts as a dehumidifier when the heat pump is running.
The owners estimate that they have been enjoying an average weekly running cost of £30 including through the winter of 2011/2012 giving them an estimated saving of over £900 a year compared to an oil based system.
When asked to comment they said that they were “Delighted” with the system.
