Heritage Pines: Eco-Friendly Heating System, Pt. 2
How can we help you? Contact Us Today
Welcome back to part two of our visit to the Heritage Pines Golf and Country Club. If you missed part one, you can find it here! Now that we’ve spoken with Herb, we want to go over the installation process for you.
The main source of water for our heating system is the lake pump, which sends water to our heaters, where it goes through an AC refrigerant system, then discharges it back into the lake. There’s no environmental impact on the lake, fish, or wildlife due to this system. This pump also has a variable frequency drive, which means we can be efficient with the flow of water.
Here in Heritage Pines, we used nine pool heaters and one spa heater. To power the units, we worked with the power company and are feeding off the transformer. We brought in a panel and meter, which powers the whole system. Our electricians are all masters of their craft and do a great job.
“There’s no environmental impact on the lake, fish, or wildlife due to this system.”
We removed Heritage Pines’ propane gas heaters, saving them a fortune and keeping them from burning dangerous fossil fuels that harm the environment. In the area where the propane heaters were, we now just have our spa and pool piping. For the spa, we use the pool water as our source instead of the lake.
Next is the bypass, which is where the water is diverted to our heating system. We installed a diversion valve (or bypass), which diverts the water to the heaters to warm up, then sends that warm water to the pool.
If you have any questions or would like us to come out for free and evaluate the efficiency of your pool, give us a call. We would love to help you.
