Delta Solution Chosen Again For Holmer Park Spa & Health Club After many years of sterling service by two Delta 12s, the directors of Hereford’s Holmer Park Spa & Club naturally turned to Calorex first for a replacement H&V environmental control unit. Holmer approached local Hereford pool and spa retailer, Three Counties Pools & Spas, to quote for the job. A long standing customer of Certikin, the company asked Certikin’s H&V Field Sales Manager, Graham Kneale to survey Holmer’s beautiful 300m2 swimming pool and two spas to make an accurate assessment of its technical needs. Graham recommended a Calorex Delta 16. “The super energy efficient machine offered a massive space saving compared to the two existing Delta units, thus freeing up space in a congested plant room. It also represented a lower capital cost for using one unit instead of two.” Three Counties’ Will Welch said: “Heating and ventilation is a vital ingredient of any successful indoor swimming pool installation and it can be a very technical, specialist area so it’s great to have the support of an expert like Graham Kneale. He provides an invaluable and unique service, if only to double check one’s own estimation of what is required.” Will added: “The size and specification of the multi-tasking Delta 16 fitted Holmer’s plant room and its pool hall requirements perfectly. We were more than happy to choose Calorex as we have great confidence in the brand.” Other fresh air system manufacturers were
asked to quote but they were almost double that of Calorex. In fact, the whole job was completed and installed for less than the cost of buying a competitor’s machine. On top of that, the Delta 16 (and 14) also comes with the added bonus of being the only environmental control unit in the marketplace to offer 20% enhanced capital allowances which meant that the overall project was a staggering £45k less than the nearest competitor’s quote.

energy used to run the heat pump, 3 to 4 kilowatts of energy are produced. Shane and Susie McDonald founded Calibrate Energy Engineering having previously owned and operated a similar company in New Zealand. They have now focused their keen business eyes on the North East, where many businesses are set to benefit from the savings provided by their systems. Hall Garth Hotel & Country Club in Darlington is already reaping the rewards of using the company with a 400% return on investment after
having the cutting-edge system installed to provide hot water for a swimming pool, spa, as well as heating their rooms, pub and gym. Director, Susie McDonald, says: “We are incredibly proud to be featured in the recent Parliamentary Review of the UK’s energy situation. The review focuses on leading energy companies across the whole sector, from nuclear and fossil fuels to sustainable energy and electric car providers. As a featured sustainable energy company, we hope this will pave the way for us to help more businesses save money and maximise their energy use. The North East is a region traditionally associated with fossil fuel production, so it seems a fitting location for companies involved in providing environmentally sound energy.” Calibrate Energy Engineering 01668 21 55 44 www.calibrateltd.co.uk
