Case Study
Ecodan helps
rehab centre to
offer a warm
A new 48-bed rehabilitation centre in Middlesbrough
is ensuring a warm welcome for its clients by installing
5 Ecodan systems to supply continuous, controllable
underfloor heating throughout the building.
Rehabilitation Centre
The 14kW Ecodan units provide heating for the newly
built centre made up of 48 self-contained en-suite flats for
clients with various supported housing needs. The centre
is run by Riverside ECHG, a specialist provider of older
persons and supported housing services throughout
Case Study
Rehabilitation Centre
Ecodan was considered the
most efficient way of delivering
renewable heating to this
rehabilitation centre
Installed by Revolution Power who are a Microgeneration Certification
Scheme (MCS) accredited installer and a member of the Renewable
Energy Association.
Using Ecodan suits our innovative approach for a
sustainable building in a very energy efficient and
cost-effective way.
“This is one of the most efficient ranges of heat pumps currently
on the market, and because they are inverter-driven, they offer
fantastic results with payback periods far less than other higher-cost
alternatives,” explained Stuart Gibson, Sales Director of Revolution
Power. “Unlike ground source technology, which can require
expensive bore holes or need a large area of land, Ecodan air source
heat pumps only require electric and in/out water pipe connections,”
he added.
Installation Summary
Ecodan heating was chosen for this
centre for it’s efficiency and ease
of installation.
5 x 14kW Ecodan units were installed.
Ecodan units provide both underfloor
heating and hot water for this centre.
Installation took 12 days.
Comparisons with gas boilers demonstrate that
Ecodan can reduce fuel bills by up to 30% and
halve carbon emissions.
Typically for every 1kW of electricity consumed by Ecodan, 3kW
or more of heating energy is supplied. This is because Ecodan
harvests ‘free’ renewable energy from the outdoor air, even in
sub-zero temperatures.
The installation will also allow the Rehabilitation Centre to qualify
for payments under any future financial schemes introduced by
the Government.
