Case Study Barn Conversion
Estia Air to Water Heat Pump System Reducing energy consumption and saving costs has been the top priority for most new-builds and renovation
projects in recent times. Toshiba have 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 to reduce his high oil costs with 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 m) but also save money compared to the existing oil fired boiler. The oil costs were reported to be 390 every six weeks.
The installation company, Climate Mechanical Services, a local based Cheshire company, stated that with the Estia system, the installation was
without complication 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 natural 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 or gas 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 Toshibas inverter technology.
The Estia unit controls the temperature of the water in the system through its innovative auto-setting that automatically adjusts the temperature of the leaving water according to the outdoor temperature. As the outside temperature decreases the system increases the water temperature and likewise as the outside temperature increases the water temperature is
The system is also being used to generate hot water through an existing hot water tank located in the roof space. The tank has its own electrical backup system and controls. The hydro unit is located in the garage and the outdoor unit is situated adjacent to the garage.
From replacing the existing oil boiler to an Estia system for the main heat generation source, the calculated year on year savings are around 50%*
on the energy bill as well as 64%* reduction in CO emissions.
Product Overview Estia
The Estia system utilises Toshibas highly acclaimed twin rotary compressor heat pump technology to provide a heating systems that are extremely energy efficient with COPs of 4.66. Estia can also provide a means for hot water generation from a range of three different sized hot water tanks (150, 210 and 300 litres). The benefits of these systems
over conventional heating are exemplary, not only are they better for the environment, they are easy to install and can be combined with different types of heating emitters (oversized radiators, under floor heating or fan coil units).
