Developers of the Lakeside Hotel and Spa on the Isle of Wight selected Heatstar to provide dehumidification, air heating and pool water heating. The hotel and spa designers wanted all things green to be the theme. The Heatstar unit was the natural choice in keeping with the whole project’s low emissions policy.
The unit selected was a special Phoenix 3000 Super+ system featuring the latest dehumidification heat pump technology and reduced energy active fan technology. Heatstar’s involvement with quality projects like the Lakeside Hotel often comes about through recommendations or previous experiences. The developer who brought the project to fruition, Godshill Park Developments, had previous experience of using Heatstar products so had no hesitiation in specifying them.
Martin Sheaff the Facilities Manager at the Lakeside Hotel commented: “This was a quality new build to the exacting new Building Standards regulations so we needed a high spec, quality unit that was as reliable as possible in use – and that is exactly how it has turned out. The Heatstar Phoenix unit has been in use for about four years now and we have had no problems at all.” The Phoenix provides dehumidification, air heating, pool water heating, active heat recovery to both air and pool water and fresh air ventilation. It is designed to provide a modulated level of fresh air dilution to achieve an enhanced impression of freshness and to prevent and build-up of chemical odours.
