The recent installation of a Heatstar Gemini heat pump, at the prestigious Rottingdean Place luxury residential estate in East Sussex, has demonstrated a year-on-year reduction in energy use of 70% compared with the previous system, at the same time reducing gas consumption by 83%.
Rottingdean Place, which lies within the South Downs National Park, was formerly an historical home for penitents that was run by nuns. The current owners appointed specialist swimming pool contractor Pool-Tec, of Sussex, to carry out the installation of the Gemini.
With a focus to improve energy efficiency in their existing indoor compoex, which had had previously been identified as a major user of energy and had been monitored closely for an extended period, Rottingdean Place considered several alternative options.
However, they were particularly attracted to the features and benefits of the Gemini, with its built-in fresh air source heat pump, its dehumidification heat pump and EC low carbon ventilation fans which automatically ramp down to save power during periods of low demand.
The client can watch the rotation of the special EC fan through an illuminated viewing window on the side of the Gemini unit. The ‘one-box’ Gemini was able to be located within the existing plant room and simply connected to the existing air distribution duct channels from the former system.
Heatstar supported Pool-Tec, who can boast 30 years active swimming pool experience, by attending site at the outset of the enquiry to make an initial assessment and also by visiting again after the contract was awarded, to ensure the tailor-made configuration of the Gemini was optimised for the available plant room space.
