To gain the maximum effect from pool environmental control, whilst reducing the significant costs of running such systems, it is vital to be able to infinitely control all the elements of the unit performing this function.
Recotherm based in Redditch in the West Midlands recognised this from their inception. From their very first units Recotherm rejected the use of cheaper on-off heating valves and light/high usage modes like some units on the market. They wanted their units to operate seamlessly as the load varies, to enable them to always work at the optimal efficiency, not jump between light and high usage modes. This capability was felt to be vital if users were to benefit from the energy saving potential of fresh air ventilation (in a new concept, which they introduced some 30 years ago to the UK market). This meant specifying high grade components and investing heavily in understanding climate control strategies and how to programme them into the control system.
It is a distinct point of difference between Recotherm and many other products on the market, which are built to a price and compromise control capability. This often results in initial cost savings on purchase price being more than outweighed by extra running costs in the lifetime of the unit.
Recotherm chose Trend controls and have been a Trend original equipment manufacturer (OEM) since 1988. Recotherm engineers are fully trained on Trend software control strategies, which are then coded in-house into Recotherms software.
The advantage of this to the customer is that any special requirements can easily be accommodated and problems can be quickly resolved because Recotherm unlike other manufacturers do not need to refer back to a third party supplier, its all done in- house.
In today’s high-tech world people also expect to be able to control everything from their mobile phone and because Recotherm use the trend IQ 4 controller they are able to offer this function if required. It also has the ability to talk to the latest home automation systems via a SIP module or bacnet. This approach means that the end user gets a high quality British made unit that will save them money every year, some Recotherm units have been running in the marketplace for 20 years which is some accumulative saving.
