River Place Apartments

Client: River Place Apartments
Location: Brisbane, QLD
Heat Pump Installed: 2 x Force-i 28-3 Heat Pump
Application: Commercial Pool Heating

River Place Apartments in Brisbane are expected to have their pool heating operating costs reduced by over 60% with their newly installed EvoHeat Force-i 28-3 heat pumps!

Anchorage Apartments

Client: Anchorage Apartments
Location: Hope Island, QLD
Heat Pump Installed: 1 x Force-i 18 Heat Pump
Application: Commercial Pool Heating

Anchorage Apartments at Hope Island on the Gold Coast replaced their old and faulty equipment with a brand new high-performance EvoHeat Force-i 18 Heat pump!

The pool was previously using a gas heater, and after only 2 years the heat exchangers were eaten through by chlorinated water! This was not covered by warranty and Anchorage Apartments made the decision to replace their faulty & inefficient equipment with one of EvoHeat’s advanced heat pumps. EvoHeat’s industry leading 25-year warranty on our 100% titanium heat exchanger will give Anchorage Apartments total peace of mind for the future.

The Force-i 18 Heat Pump was installed alongside various equipment inside a very warm plantroom. This was due to the fact that the body corporate wished for the heat pump not to be visible. EvoHeat and our trade customer found a way to satisfy this requirement while also providing appropriate conditions for the heat pump to operate correctly and deliver the highest possible level of energy efficiency for the site.

To adequately remove the cold waste air the heat pump generates out of the plantroom, a section of the besa block wall was cut-out and the heat pump was faced towards the wall, mounted on top of a pair of cantilever brackets. A louvre was installed over the cut hole to keep the weather out and allow the cold waste air to pass through.

Other key aspects of the installation included a by-pass being installed to regulate/isolate water flow into the heat pump, the display controller was removed and remounted to the rear of the heater, and plumbing of condensate was routed to the closest floor waste drain.

Outstanding Results
Heating costs will reduce significantly by approximately 70%, this will provide for a quick ROI (Return on Investment)! Once the ROI is reached, those savings can be directed toward other important building and maintenance projects!


Royal Palm Resort

Client: Royal Palm Resort
Location: Palm Beach, QLD
Heat Pumps Installed: Main Pool: 2x CS120-GEN2 Heat Pumps
Spa: Force-i 28-3 Heat Pump
Application: Pool Heating & Spa Heating

Royal Palm Resort located in Palm Beach on the Gold Coast have both a pool and spa for resort guests to enjoy. Previously, a heat pump of approximately 80-90kW was being used for the main pool, which was significantly undersized and insufficient for the pool’s requirements; while the spa had a costly and inefficient electric element heater. EvoHeat performed an evaluation on the pool & spa and determined that two EvoHeat CS120-GEN2 heat pumps were the best solution for the main pool’s heating requirements –totaling 240kW; more than double that of the old and unsatisfactory unit! It was determined that the spa would be a perfect fit for the EvoHeat Force-i 28-3 heat pump.

Outstanding Results
Not only will the Force-i heat pump run quietly and heat the spa to a perfect temperature for guests, the estimated R.O.I of the unit is under a year!

The two CS120-GEN2 heat pumps will deliver exceptional performance for the resort, saving them money on their pool heating costs with maximum efficiency!

Fairways Golf and Beach Retreat

Client: Fairways Golf and Beach Retreat
Location: Bribie Island, QLD
Heat Pump/s Installed: Force-i 28 Heat Pump
Application: Pool Heating

Fairways Golf and Beach Retreat are the happy owners of the new Force-i 28!
Space was very tight during the installation, so air grills were used to push the air out through the fence. The screen was relocated to the of the heat pump so that it could be easily accessed. By installing flexi ducting, it ensured that all the air was directed out of the wall vents which prevented bounce back and maintained high efficiencies.

Outstanding Results
When we first started the unit, the customer did not believe it was running since the unit was so quiet! There was no compressor start up or running noises at all – and when the unit was ramped up to 100% it was still half the noise that the water pump made.

Gabba Central Apartments

Client: Gabba Central Apartments
Location: Brisbane, QLD
Heat Pumps Installed: 1x CS47 Heat Pump
Application: Pool Heating

Gabba Central Apartments required their apartment pool to be heated for the resident’s enjoyment. After determining that a EvoHeat CS47 heat pump was the most suitable for the pool’s requirements, it was installed alongside the pool against the railing. By using a ducting hood, all the cold air is expelled out over the balcony. A louvred enclosure for the heat pump allows for air to still circulate whilst also keeping the heat pump out of view.

Outstanding Results
“From our initial meeting with Evo, it became abundantly clear that we were dealing with people who were passionate and highly experienced in pool heating. By being able to foresee potential headaches, they could adequately plan so our installation went smoothly and a minimum of fuss. Our residents who have used the pool have nothing but praise, especially how quiet the new heat pump is. We cannot recommend Evo highly enough.” – Mick Sharp, JP (Chairman, Body Corporate for Gabba Central, QLD)
