The costs of extending a gas supply to this new build luxury holiday let prompted the owners to look for an alternative solution. Turning to Global Energy Systems and local supplier they were able to reduce their carbon footprint and install a highly efficient system.
The house has a 15 kW Stirling Eco Air Boiler running the heating and hot water, with radiators as the central heating system. In 2014 this cost £924 to run, offering a very similar running cost to mains gas but offering a saving of 10-15% on carbon emissions but avoiding the expense of running gas main.
The hot tub is run by a 9 kW London Eco Air Boiler that provided a full water refill on each guest changeover and 365 running for £404 in 2014, again similar to gas, but with a potential saving of over 3 tonnes of carbon.
This has allowed a simple, efficient and single energy source system for the property.
