Reducing energy consumption and saving costs has been the top priority for most new-builds and renovation projects in recent times. Toshiba has the perfect solution to saving money and energy in the form of their new Estia, Air to Water Heat Pump System.
The owner of the barn wanted a discreet, modern form of heating with a long life expectancy which would not only heat the barn sufficiently and provide domestic hot water (house floor area 292.56 m²) but also save money compared to the existing oil fired the boiler. The oil costs were reported to be £390 every six weeks.
The installation company, Climate Mechanical Services stated that with the Estia system, the installation was easy and the component parts were discreetly situated in the garage and the outdoor unit was placed out of sight on the external part of the building. The Estia system use of naturally occurring energy in the outside air and converting it into useful heat, should not only reduce the impact on the environment but also offer significant cost savings over the old oil fuelled boiler. Another benefit of the Estia system is the speed at which it heats the house and then remains at a constant temperature, thanks to Toshiba’s inverter technology.
