Acresfield Complex and Pool

In building this leisure centre the owners were keen to have as sustainable an energy requirement as possible. To end this, air source heat pumps have been installed in tandem with gas boilers and roof mounted PV panels.

This combination allows the mixed demands of pool and space heating and shower water to be managed across the year.

Recreational Accommodation Centre

Heating 2 x accommodation blocks on electric storage heaters was proving expensive for this company who wanted to reduce their running costs. They looked at Air Source Heat Pumps as an alternative. Global Energy Systems installed 4 x 18kW Caernarfon air source heat pumps (2 for each block) to provide hot water and heat through radiators.

The annual savings against previous costs are £7,428 which includes payments from the non domestic RHI which this installation is accredited onto.

Talacre Beach Swimming Pool

Holiday Home Park
  • Two 18kW Caernarfon air source heat pumps
  • Bivalent, integrated oil back up
  • Non-Domestic RHI eligible
  • Indoor tropically heated swimming pool

The owners of the holiday home park were interested in reducing the amount spent on oil to heat the large swimming pool.

After a site survey Global Energy Systems predicted that alongside an oil boiler, two heat pumps would largely reduce oil costs to heat the swimming pool all year round. As well as being accredited onto the Non-domestic RHI scheme the holiday home is benefiting from extra savings.

Predicted savings of £10,207 with a 2.9 year payback

Barn Conversion with Heat Pump & PV

When converting this off grid barn into a holiday let, the owner wanted a carbon neutral heating system. By combining a 15kW air source heat with 20 solar PV panels the property is able to generate enough electricity to off set the heating on most days of the year.

Our estimate for the running costs of the property were it to have been heated with oil would be over £2,500. This combination, and heat and power system offers the ultimate in costs and emissions savings

Luxury Holiday Let With Hot Tub

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 as a local supplier, they were able to reduce their carbon footprint by installing a 15kW air source heat pump.

The heat pump runs 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 9kW London air source heat pump that provides a full water refill on each guest changeover and 365 running days 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.

Ribby Hall Village

  • Sports Hall
    • Provides heat to badminton hall via Fan convectors
    • Underfloor Heating for additional studios
    • 1x Air Source Heat Pump
    • Bi-Valent system with gas boiler
    • Non-Domestic RHI Accredited

    Having already installed Global Energy Systems Air Source Heat Pumps on their accommodation properties, it was an easy decision for Ribby Hall Holiday Village when it came to installing a new heating system on their renovated sports hall.
    Global Energy Systems sized and specified for 1x Air Source heat pump to provide the heat via fan convectors and under floor heating

    This has kept the hall at a satisfactory temperature over the winter months and is also accredited on the non-domestic RHI to receive payments for the next 20 years

Embleys Nurseries Cafe

Global Energy Systems replaced a faulty Air Source Heat Pump by another manufacturer which had ceased trading. With the owner left without support from the installers and manufacturers, he contacted Global Energy who supplied and fitted 1x Caernarfon Air source heat pump to provide heating to the cafe and hot water to the kitchen.

Since installation the owner has peace of mind that we are a phone call away should he have any queries, he has also been accepted onto the RHI incentive which will receive payments for the next 20 years.
