If you need heating or cooling, or both, then you should be considering heat pumps as part of your plans. Heat pumps have been with us since the late 1800s and were originally designed to create ice to keep things cool in warmer months. Now we utilise them in virtually any application where heating or cooling is required. As the need to reduce CO2 emissions increases, heat pumps are going to be used to displace fossil fuel driven systems as they are fully electric and are capable of remarkable efficiency if selected well for the application.
SmartConsult have produced a guide for heat pumps in Aquatic Centres that helps to explain in more detail the types of heat pumps available and what their characteristics are to assist council staff and others in getting up to speed on the topic. You can read the guide here.
