Energy efficient leisure centre


The installation of the latest air conditioning systems are offering improved comfort levels at manageable costs for staff and users of the revamped Haslemere Leisure Centre.


SPORTING a new façade, enlarged gym and new dance studio, Haslemere Leisure Centre, formerly The Herons, has undergone a £4m redevelopment that also included modernizing the 15-year-old centre’s poolside facilities and offices. Managed by Places for People Leisure in


partnership with Waverley Borough Council, the centre’s renovation incorporates the latest air conditioning systems from Daikin UK to provide a healthy and comfortable environment for those using the refurbished and extended dryside facilities at the Surrey leisure centre. A 48hp Daikin VRV Heat Recovery system


consisting of three modular 16hp condensing units was installed at the site. Designed to provide ample heating and cooling for year- round comfort for staff and customers, especially when the gym and other facilities are in peak use, the heat recovery facility renders and utilises waste heat from warm areas to efficiently heat the cool spaces.


There are 17 self-cleaning Roundflow


cassette indoor units, ranging in heating capacity from 2.5kW to 16kW that serve the gym, dance studio, crèche, offices and related areas. The cassettes provide a comfortable environment with a 360° discharge that ensures uniform distribution of airflow and temperature. Features include a self-cleaning decoration panel that offers further efficiency and energy savings by preventing the accumulation of dust that can impede airflow through the unit. Dust deposited between cleaning cycles is automatically brushed and blown into a storage chamber which can be emptied as required with a standard vacuum cleaner. The Heat Recovery has a Daikin


Intelligent Touch Manager, which allows staff to control the temperatures in each of the centre’s rooms. The touch-screen interface gives direct access to the main functions of each indoor unit, while smart


management tools monitor energy use and help to detect where energy may be wasted, thus maximising efficiency. Furthermore, the Heat Pump system has


a Daikin RTD-20 Economiser controller that provides easy operational management of individual zones and saves on running costs by offering a separate mode for ‘after hours’ operation. It also provides increased comfort with the integration of CO2 sensors for fresh air volume control. “Recognising today’s pressures on local


authority finances, it is essential that we balance the need for ongoing expenditure for maintenance and development of public facilities with sensible investment in systems that offer additional benefits, such as energy cost savings and a reduced carbon footprint,” says Kelvin Mills, Waverley Borough Council’s head of communities and major projects.
