Talbot Lodge Nursing Home 

Client Objective:

Reduce heating and hot water bills yet maintain a high comfort level with a sustainable economic solution.

Previous Heating System:

Oil fired burner for both space heating and hot water.


  • Old inefficient boiler with poor ventilation and control systems that was prone to overheating.
  • Exceptionally high fuel costs.


The old building was using approximately 80,000 litres of heating oil per annum. We installed 3 x 20KW AirGO Ice Sticks to heat the existing radiator system and 2 x 500L heat pumps to provide hot water. Both are now backed up by a small domestic oil boiler.

Insulation and HRV upgrades were also completed and the owners are enjoying their return on investment.


  • The installation has resulted in savings in excess of €60,000 in the first year. The total payback is ecpected to be less than 2.5 years.
  • The nursing home has 24/7 heating and hot water on demand giving a warm cosy ambient temperature all year round for the residents.
