12 newly built, one-bedroom apartments in Aldershot have each been fitted with an Ariston NUOS FS250i floor-standing air source heat pump water heater. The products have been installed to ensure carbon emissions are reduced by a minimum of 10% through the provision of onsite renewable energy, in accordance with Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Commenting on the specification of the NUOS units, Phil Davey, Director of Davey Developments, said: “We needed to ensure that the new properties would benefit from getting 10% of their energy from a renewable source. After finding out about the NUOS range, I was invited by Ariston to look around their factory to familiarise myself with the product. Once its renewable credentials had been explained to me, it became apparent that the NUOS would enable the apartments to meet the necessary levels of sustainability.”
The installation was conducted by Kevin Marlow, Director of K Marlow Plumbing & Heating, who added: “The NUOS is a good-looking product that’s very easy to fit. We put the first of the units in during the summer and – after just three hours – there was a full 250-litre cylinder of hot water available for use.”
