HONE Heating, Hot Water & Pool Heating System.

This installation is our standard HONE residential Heating, Hot Water & Pool Heating system, designed to provide heating, hot water and heat  to the house and pool all year round. In this location the HONE system will provide nearly all the heat energy required annually This home is an existing home with wood burning stove boiler which previously had to be run 12 months of the year for heating and hot water regardless of the outside weather. This installation of HONE is still very straight forward in a retrofit and ties in with all the existing systems easily. The wood burning stove will now be used only as backup in the depths of winter.

HONE energy systems are designed for each unique installation
so join the Revolution.

What HONE system has been installed here?

The system installed is a standard HONE Heating, Hot Water & Pool System which is installed in a priority of hot water, heating and pool heating in that order.

What was the motivation for the homeowner to do the upgrade?

The homeowner has a local supply of wood which they pay for at a reasonable price and hence why they have long heated the home with a wood burning boiler. The work load of feeding and cleaning a solid fuel boiler several times a day, every day for 12 months of the year had undermined the comfort and enjoyment of the home. The HONE system upgrade has removed the requirement of the wood stove boiler for 9 months of the year and lowered its use in the high winter months. The outdoor swimming pool will require significant amounts of heat and all this will come from the HONE system all year round if required.

Where there any challenges with this installation?

This house was a new build, a very simple straight forward project. This project used small radiators and underfloor mixed throughout the building.

What is the location of this installation?

Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France.

What are the savings expected?

This system is designed to do a significant amount of the annual heat load to the building and free up a significant amount of time spent, transporting logs, loading the boiler and cleaning the boiler several times daily. The HONE system is designed to reduce the annual heating bill  by over 85%.
