Subject: Heat pump
You sold me a heat pump for my place in France in April which I am really pleased with. I have installed it with an energy monitor so I can track the costs, currently it is averaging out at €3.50 per day. Which when you consider the awful weather we have had, I consider this to be really good, the pool is set at 26 degrees which is higher than I would have had it with the oil boiler. In the past we have used 1800 to 2000 litres per year which this year would have cost us in the region of €1800 for the year. Even if this terrible weather continues with the heat pump the annual running cost
(based on a 4 month swimming season) should be just over €400.
I just thought you may be interested in a real life figures.
Also I have had lots of interest from other people I know with pools, so could you tell me how much to supply the same model (19kw) cash with me picking it up and a price delivered to France (Brittany). Are the pumps up to French specs and is a certificate of conformity available, and would you know if I would have to pay any import tax on them.
I really think there may be a chance to start fitting these as a business out here. The local pool shops are fitting 9kw pumps that just are not powerful enough to heat thepools here and I think this could be a viable business opportunity.
Let me know what you think.
