Forward thinking Scarborough Borough Council had already installed an Air Source Heat Pump for Whitby Marina’s amenity block however the original installation had been undersized making the system inefficient. Scarborough Borough Council were keen to ensure that a replacement was installed before winter and contacted to carry out the work.
Our first task was to survey the building and carry out full heat calculations to ensure that the new heat pump would meet the heating demand of the building. Having calculated that a 14kW heat pump was required we recommended the Mitsubishi system due to its incredible ability to maintain a 14kW heat output even when the temperature is -20 outside (and let’s hope it doesn’t get that cold). This means that the marina users will be able to enjoy the amenity block very comfortably.
