Lazonby swimming pool river source heat pump data

Note, The original boiler was 65% efficient. In 1982, a new boiler could have been 88% efficient (in theory)

Swimming pool heat pump pollution figures for various fuel types.

1 Pollution figures for oil 0.27 kg CO2/ Kwhr
Boiler efficiency 65 %
Net Oil pollution figure 0.42 kg CO2/ Kwhr

2 Boiler efficiency 86 %
Net Oil pollution figure 0.31 kg CO2/ Kwhr

3 Pollution figures for north sea gas 0.19 kg CO2/ Kwhr
Boiler efficiency 90 %
Net Gas pollution figure 0.21 kg CO2/ Kwhr

4 Pollution figures for electricity 0.47 kg CO2/ Kwhr
Heat pump efficiency (COP) 4.25 heat output/ electric input
Net pollution figure HP 0.111 kg CO2/ Kwhr

Pollution and cost figures taken from
The graphs make these assumptions
Original cost of oil heating £1,700 per year , oil at 20p/lit
Original oil boiler 65% efficient, new boiler, 88% efficient, £2,000 to install
Heat pump £5,000 to install.
Inflation ignored, so cost figures only give comparison between types.
