Capital cost: £7,000
Energy saving: £4,221
Carbon saving (tCO2e):11.9 tonnes of Carbon
£1,389 climate change levy
Project payback: 18 months
Energy meters were installed at two like for like sites one in Leeds the other in Meadowhall, the total amount of water consumed was also measured along with all electrical power including back up immersion heaters (which have never been in use) The results proved that the heat pump saved 71.5% of the energy being used.
We strive for sustainability wherever possible right across our business and were keen to trial air to water heat pumps at our new Sheffield restaurant. The results of the trial show us that we can achieve significant savings on our energy costs as well as reducing our Carbon footprint. We hope to now install Aquarea units at all our new developments and retro fit ASHP’s to our existing 50 restaurants.
