Shoreline Hydrotherapy™ is proud to introduce another industry first!
Introducing The ShoreHeat™ Heat Pump
Shoreline™ hot tubs are one of the most efficient, lowest energy consuming, environmentally friendly hydrotherapy hot tub ranges available in the UK. However, should you wish to reduce your power consumption even further and be even more environmentally friendly, then all you need to add is the ShoreHeat™ heat pump option to your purchase*.
How do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps work in similar way to the kitchen fridge but in the opposite direction. Instead of cooling an area like a refrigerator, a heat pump collects heat and deposits the heat into an area. In this case, your Shoreline™ hot tub.
Please don’t be alarmed. As there is no need to dig up your garden! ShoreHeat™ heat pumps are air sourced heat pumps, not ground source! Everything needed for the connection to your Shoreline™ hot tub is included. All that is required is a suitable base** placed next to or behind your Shoreline™ hot tub.
A World First Innovation In Hot Tubs
The ShoreHeat™ heat pump is a world first. It is the first heat pump especially designed for heating hot tubs. The Shoreline™ range of hot tubs have been specially designed so that the ShoreHeat™ heat pump can be integrated into the Shoreclean™ filtration system and the ShoreSet™ Balboa™ control system. The ShoreHeat™ heat pump is the latest generation of air source heat pumps and utilizes the latest technologies including intelligent processors and software, titanium composite heat exchangers and rotary compressors. They also have reverse-cycle defrost capability. This means that the ShoreHeat™ heat pump will work at an ambient air temperature of 5ºC and above. The greater the ambient temperature, the greater the efficiency.
Co-efficient of Performance (COP)
The co-efficient of performance or COP is the efficiency rating system used for air source heat pumps (and ground source heat pumps). It is a measure of their effectiveness in converting the power it uses into heat i.e. energy in/energy out.
The COP of a ShoreHeat™ heat pump is approximately 5 to 1. This means that when your ShoreHeat™ heat pump is working at its maximum efficiency, for every 1kw of electricity consumed the unit will provide approximately 5kw of heat. This equates to 4kw of heat you have not had to buy! 4KW of FREE HEAT! Every other hot tub sold within the UK at best has a co-efficiency of 1 to 1 at best, as they only have a standard electric heater fitted. Even at temperatures as low as 5ºC, the ShoreHeat™ heat pump has a co-efficiency of 2 – 1. This is still twice as efficient as any other brand of hot tubs heating system.
Added ShoreHeat™ Heat Pump Benefits
For those customers who wish to site their hot tubs indoors**, there may be times in the summer when the water in the hot tub is too hot. Especially in conservatories and sun rooms where there can be a lot of passive solar gain (the green house effect). This can sometimes lead to temperatures in the hot tub exceeding 40ºC without any form of heating! ShoreHeat™ heat pumps have the ability to work in reverse and therefore cool the water down.
*Available at extra cost.
**Heat pumps must be situated outside and not be enclosed or obstructed.
