Daikin technology is helping to provide low-cost comfort for a Dorset business that is committed to renewable energy.
The combination of Altherma heat pumps, VRV IV Heat Recovery air conditioning and VAM ventilation unit operate at virtually no cost because they are powered mostly by rooftop solar panels.
The company needed a solution to help deliver enough cooling capacity which would pay for itself quickly. In addition, Nigel Upson, general manager at the poultry firm, needed a solution which would enhance their production output and save them energy.
Geyser Thermal won the 'ACR Ancillary Product of the Year' in January for its heat recovery system in a health centre which provides hot water using heat from an air conditioning chiller.
Will Hawkins met Lolli Olafsson to see the system in action.
Energy Saving Solution
Lolli's client was looking around for a solution to lower their energy use and costs, and was open to alternative solutions.
When is the last time you went into a farm shop and thought 'This is amazing'?
That was the case when I visited Keelham Farm Shop on the outskirts of Skipton, Yorkshire. David Haughton and Ken Riley from DK Heat Recovery invited me up to see how they are helping this outstanding farm shop use heat recovery from its refrigeration systems to generate hot water and heating to save hundreds of pounds a month off their energy bill.
Keelham Farm Shop is a privately-owned business with two shops in its group. The owners supply the shops from their own farm and 400 other local farms. The Skipton shop is an impressive building which includes the shop, a cafe and restaurant, bakery, flower shop, butchers and an ale house. It opened in June 2015 and its owners were keen to ensure that it was environmentally friendly and efficient.
